Top Dog of the Month: Small Dog Room

Name: Sadie

Nicknames: Lil' Girl, Princess, Sassy, Sissy

Full name (if registered or have a middle name): Sadie Hawkins Krukow

How old? I have a May birthday like my mommy.

When did they come live with you? I was born on a farm in Indiana, about 450 miles from Des Moines.  My mommy saw a picture of me online and fell in love. My paw-rents drove to get me I was 10 weeks old.

Any siblings(animal or human?) No siblings at home.  I love when they come to visit, especially when my niece Lady (she's a Labrador) comes to play…she likes balls like I do!

Favorite place? Any place my mommy is.  If I'm not on her lap, I'm on the back of her chair.

Which one best: Outside or inside?  Inside for the most part, I'm a fair weather girl, but I do love to sun myself on the deck. I'll eagerly go outside for a walk, that means chasing bunnies!

Dog parks, Nap times, or Spa Day? Bi-weekly Friday's at DDD!  I call this Friends Day! My pawrents don't tell me until it's time to leave the house because I get so excited.

Favorite place to sleep? My bed on the floor beside my mommy's side of the bed.  If Daddy wakes up before Mommy in the morning, then my favorite place is Daddy's spot in the bed!

Favorite food dog or human kind? Until recently, anything with peanut butter, that's been the only human food I've had. Now, STEAK!  I recently got the bone from Daddy's T-bone steak…now, more steak please.

Favorite toy at home? Any one of my 20 or so balls…

Favorite thing to do?  Play fetch with one of my 20 or so balls…  AND, don't try to throw a different ball, I pick the ball we're playing with and know the difference.

Favorite person or best friend?  Mommy, until she goes to work, then I'm Daddy's girl, he's always home with me.​ 

Watching my figure or YOLO (Picky eater or "starving all the time?") I had been a picky eater... until I found out about STEAK!

I always am... Ready to play ball.

Loves getting pets or just a loner?  Pets...from anyone, there are no strangers in my world.  Everyone's my friend, whether they want to be or not.

Introvert vs extrovert? In your face, Extrovert.

Funny characteristics: I'm so cute when I flop on my back that people just want to rub my belly…lol. I lay on the floor with a ball and push it with my nose to roll it to you…please throw it so I can fetch it!

Misc stories about their past etc.: I'm lucky to have found my parents.  My daddy said no dogs for 8 years until my Mommy caught him in a weak moment. Thank You Coors Light, whoever you are.
