Ohhh myyyy...I'm in love with these bears too!  As Jerry said though, it wasn't  our house that was ransacked....still such an adorable photo and precious story.

I love that they went out the door when you opened it.  I'm sure they much preferred that exit as opposed to going thru Sadie's doggy door. And so cute that the baby bear took off with your neighbor's  sugar stash.

While I'm sorry it happened, glad it was you and your neighbor as someone else may have hurt them, or worse.

Now, the way I see it.  Sadie used her Spirit energy to communicate  with her Bear friends to tell them to break j to uour hoise.  And just so you wouldn't  forget, Itwas  just her way of reminding  you what a stellar job she did keeping those bears away from your home!  

Thanks for the  Bear update..clearly .orchestrated  by Sadie♥️

Merry Christmas Happy Holidays!

These are Sadies Santa photos from two years ago.

We have snow now and I think the bears are in hibernation now!

Sadie loved the snow!

Awwww......seeing sweet Sadie in all her glory brings a smile to my heart.  Yes, the "first" Christmas or "first" anything can be bittersweet.  But thank goodness we have treasured photos like this to remind us what a well lived and well loved and Hapoy earth life Sadie lived.

And I say this with all sincerity, Sadie has been, and shall conti ue to be a TripawdRockstar who p,ayed full out and never let three legs interfere  with sadie bein Sadie.  We reference  her videos a lot arou d here when a newbie  fears their dog wont do well on three.  Well take a look at this amazing dog named Sadie!!

I'm so glad your chronicled  Sadie's journey here with so many videos and photos.  Seeing her first swim, her many swims, her Hapoy Birthday swimms....seeingnher do her "log walk"....seeing the fun she had with Rosco..seeing her happiness innthe snow....and kne pf my favorites, seeing her run like the wind on her trails.  Yes, Sadie will always be a legacy here of what's possible on three.

Sending you best wishes for a Merry Christmas and happy memories of your sweet Sadie.

Sally and Alumni   Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle and Frankie too!

PS....Any more bear visitors.?.

Hi,

I am so glad that Sadie will continue to help other tripawd families !

Finding your site after the prognoses was and still is such a great help!!!

Thank you very much!

Since we have snow now ( and a lot of it!) the bears are hibernating and we probably will not see them until spring. 

But we have a new visiter: I adopted a 1.5 year old from Rotts of Friends rescue in Woodland, Ca. 

I was casually looking, not sure if I was ready, when I saw her. From the description she seemed a lot like Sadie and was too much for her owner and lacked training.  I just got her on  12/18 and so far she is great and loves the snow!

I hope Spirit Sadie is ok with her, especially since she is getting all her handy me downs. 

I always though about getting another dog as Sadie got older. I wish she was here to play with her and teach her about the bears!

Wjat a cutie!!!  And clearly she has won the Puppy Lottery with you as her furever home.  Too much for her precious owner??? That's  because she was waiting for the right hooman to understand her and help her be the dog she was born to be.

And make no mistake, Sadie had her paws all over this!!   And she's already taught her a lot of "Sadie specific  traits".  Yoi'll see them unfold when you least expect it.  Just like she sent her to you when you were least expecting  to bring another dog nto your loving home. And heart.  Oh don't  worry, Sadie has her own spot furecer nestled in your heart.  She knew it woild be big enoigh to share with others.

That picture of the pup (her name?) Next to the beautiful snow covered  Christmas tree is Hallmark card worthy.

Thanks so much for sharing this cute Rottie.  Looking forward to following  her adventures with you AND more pictures!!!

Hugs

Hey Tony! Hoppy Pawlidays to you and your new BFF! Oh my dog what is her name? 

I don't know how I missed your previous post but seeing Sadie love that snow so much, I have no doubt that she is guiding your new girl into the wonderful, adventurous life that you are giving her. LUCKY LUCKY pup! 

That snow is something else. Enjoy the fun and watch for signs that Sadie is just around the bend looking out for both of you. She knew exactly who to send your way.

I'm so glad you shared!

Hi. Happy New Year!

Her name is Stella. 

She is meeting all Sadies friends. Here is a photo of her and Rocco(in the back)

And playing with Koa (the neighbor dog) in the snow. 

This weekend, Sadies best dog friends (Jackson - black lab and Indy - pit bull) will be visiting. But I am sure she already smelled their scent in the house.

Hoppy New Year to you too!

What fun! She has such a welcome wagon ready to play with. You'll have to let us know how the introduction to Jackson and Indy goes. Sounds like a lot of barking and wrassling...and fun!!!

Congrats!

I just love how Stella is meeting all of Sadie's pals.  Suh a beautiful  way Sadie is still keeping her paws all over this gal she sent you.

You've put together a lovely rock garden for Sadie.  And to have Jackson and Indy paying tribute by sitting so perfectly  at her "resting place" .....just beautiful 

Thank you for sharing how it's going.  And love the pictures and look forward to more👍
