HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

“Hi, it’s me Sadie here. My dear cyber pal, the beautiful and famous, Tais Toi, a/k/a Jolie, who is a member of the Renaissance performance troop, The Trouvères is checking in with me to discuss what costumes we’ll be wearing for Halloween. I’m still not sure yet, but Tais Tois is going to wear a very bewitching ensemble. Take a look...

Tais Tói says,  Hello everyone! I’m so excited about tomorrow night! Daddy Michael and Mommy Grace are taking me trick-or-treating and then to a fancy dress ball. I’m looking forward to getting lots of dog treats (no chicken bones or chocolate of course), and then dancing the night away until midnight. What do you think of my outfit? Do you think it’s me?  Well, everyone, I’m being called for dinner. Hope you all have a wonderful Halloween and you get more treats than tricks! Bye for now. <3 Tais Toi.’”

Sadie Saves

"Hi everyone, it's me Sadie!  Today I want to introduce you my newest canine friend "Cyclops."  He's a four-year-old short-haired male/neutered Chihuahua mix who's hoping he'll be adopted soon. Cyclops is a spunky little guy with a great big personality and boundless energy - he's, always ready to go and loves having a good play session, but also loves to wind down getting lots of loving tummy rubs. He would do best in a family with children over the age of seven, and with no other pets because he enjoys being the center of attention and has lots of love to give. Cyclops is waiting for his forever family to visit him and get to know him. He currently is available for adoption through the Second Chance Animal Shelter, East Brookfield, Massachusetts.  His animal ID number is 28633211.  Please, share his picture and story with your family, friends and social networks, and together we will find him a new home. I thank you. Love, Sadie"

"Sadie, the fictional talking dog, and her fictional family of intelligent canines are based on real-life rescued Chihuahuas that my wife and I have adopted over the years.  Anybody who lives with a dog realizes how smart they really are and even if they can't speak Doglish there's certainly love and intelligence in their beautiful eyes.  So many animals, dogs and cats, are discarded or euthanized every year because there's simply too many of them out there and not enough loving human homes to adopt them,  Dogs and cats totally rely on the humans that domesticated them to survive.  I hope through Sadie's stories that more people will come to appreciate the wonder and responsibility we have to welcome these animals into our lives or at least help keep the unwanted population lower by spay and neuter.


Sadie Saves is serious business spoken by a cute fictional character.  Just sit back and imagine if there truly was a spokesdog for all dog-and-cat kind.  Wouldn't you rather save an animal at a shelter that's probably looking at a shortened lifespan if it isn't adopted?  Who knows, maybe the next adopted dog will turn out to be the real-life speaking Sadie."

Sadie Saves

"Hi everyone, it's me Sadie wishing you a splendid Sunday!  Today I'm here to tell and show you the extraordinary rescue of my two new canine friends "Cola" and "Pepsi."  They were found living in dreadful and scary conditions underneath 10 lanes of a Los Angeles freeway, and were carefully rescued and lovingly rehabilitated by the awesome folks at Hope for Paws. Both dogs are poodle mix and are about 1-1/2 years old, and are believed to be sister (Cola) and brother (Pepsi).They are playful and personable. Currently, they are in foster care but are now available for adoption as a bonded pair through Maltese Rescue of California. Please view their rescue on the video below provided by the Hope for Paws Official Rescue Channel and share their story with your family, friends and social networks. Together I know we will find them a 'forever family' to call their own."

Sadie Saves

“Hi everyone, it’s me Sadie, wishing you a splendid Sunday!  Today, I want to introduce you to some very special humans who are making a significant difference in the lives of senior and disabled canines and felines.  Oftentimes, the elderly and infirm in the animal kingdom are euthanized or given up for adoption, and sadly are provided with no hope for a better future.  One organization, The Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland is dedicated to providing exemplary care and quality of life to dogs and cats so that their ‘golden years’ are truly golden, and that their every need is met in making their lives comfortable and worthwhile.  Please see the video below, INSIDE A DOG RETIREMENT HOME  – my thanks to  the National Geographic Channel for capturing the dedication and care provided by Sher Polvinale and her team of volunteers.  To learn more about House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary, please follow this link.

Sadie Saves


Hi everyone, it’s me Sadie wishing you a Happy Sunday, and am asking you to continue to help me get the word out about my friend Jake, who is still hoping to be adopted. You may remember that I originally introduced him to you on August 2nd, and that he’s available for adoption through the Second Chance Animal Shelter in East BrookfieldMassachusetts.  His Identification number is - 10799745. Please continue to share his new picture and story with your family, friends and social networks.  Together I’m sure we will find him a ‘forever family.’  I thank you for your help.  Love, Sadie”




“Jake says, ‘Hello everyone. I’m a six-year old Australian Shepherd mix looking for an active family to adopt me.  I’m a friendly boy that enjoys going for long walks and playing fetch.  I need to go to an adult home who can work with me getting out my energy and working on turning me into even more of a gentleman.  I like to think of myself as King and would be best with no other animals to challenge my reign.  I am a super dog in the right environment and would excel in an environment where I can focus my energy into correct channels.  I am a loyal boy and have a lot of love to give.  I go for daily adventures with one of my friends here at the shelter to his lake house.  I love going for rides in his truck and meeting new people.  He says I do wonderful and really enjoy relaxing at the lake.  Please stop by Second Chance Animal Shelter to see if I am the right fit for you.”

Canine Correctness

"Hi everyone, it's me Sadie.  As many of you know I LOVE spending time surfing on my pack leader's computer (when he's not  around.)  Anyway, the other day I found this terrific video of some of my canine pals and how they forage for food when their families aren't around, and even when they are.  I definitely think I learned a thing or two just watching them.  LOOK OUT FAMILY, and my thanks to America's Funniest Home Videos."

‘Greetings from the village of Southampton, New York my dearest friend and fans! We’re taking a few days off for some much needed rest and relaxation before heading off to Connecticut to continue our World Tour.  Originally, we were scheduled to vacation on Martha’s Vineyard, but we thought it best to steer clear of all the paparazzi during the First Family’s vacation. Also, I didn’t want to steal the spotlight nor make the job of the Secret Service agents more stressful.   Daddy Michael and mommy Grace are taking me to the beach today, and then later this evening we’re attending a private soiree for some Hollywood types. Anyway, what do you think of my new beach attire – is it me?   Well, my dear Sadie and friends, I must run! Till we meet again.  <3 Tais Toi”’

Sadie Saves: Special Edition II

"Hi everyone, it’s me Sadie wishing you a splendid Saturday, and asking for your help in finding a ‘forever family’ for my newest canine friend, Woofie. She’s a sweet a Pomeranian/Chihuahua mix who is available for adoption through the Animal Aid Foundation here in Tallahassee, Florida.  Her unfortunate background is all too familiar, as she was rescued from a puppy mill where she was forced to breed and live under deplorable conditions. The kind and caring staff at Animal Aid have given Woofie a great deal of love and rehabilitation, which included bathing, treatment for hookworms, spaying and bringing all her vaccines up-to-date.



Woofie says, ‘My life is so much better now because of the kindness of my human caretakers here at Animal Aid, but I want to find a family that I can call my own. Please, share my story with your family, friends and social networks, as I hope someone will want to visit me here at Animal Aid, and hopefully adopt me. Thank you, Woofie.”’

Rachel says, ‘I’m feeling so much better now and am looking forward to a brighter future and hoping to be adopted. I want you to know that I enjoy being around people and dogs.

Road trip entertainment…

“Hi everyone, it’s me Sadie.  Summertime is a great time to hit the vacation road, and if you’ll be taking off and traveling in the next few weeks, please check out my SADIE SAPIENS audiobook.  You’ll get almost 11 hours of a compelling entertainment that will make you laugh, cry and wonder about the world we live in as the story of my life unfolds.  Written by my pack leader and favorite author Jeff T. Bauer, and narrated by actress Paula Slade (who does a real mean imitation of my voice) you’ll discover how I learned to speak, use the computer and become the world’s smartest dog and newest species. Please follow the links below to listen to an excerpt of my story, SADIE SAPIENS, read reviews, and learn about special purchasing promotions through Amazon and Audible.  Safe travels and happy listening!  Love, Sadie”

  WHAT REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT MY AUDIOBOOK

"Plenty of depth in one little dog! This is not your average 'talking dog' story. While SADIE SAPIENS certainly has its cute and humorous moments, the book explores a much broader and deeper range of emotional and intellectual territory than its whimsical premise might imply. Super-smart Chihuahua Sadie and her teenage human companion Emma brave their way through a roller coaster ride of exciting and harrowing experiences. Many of their adventures center around Sadie’s remarkable talents, but just as often the drama arises from the everyday tragedies and triumphs of real life. Both heroines emerge from their respective traumas stronger, wiser, and with a greater sense of self. Their journey is a heartwarming one, with a dog/human 'pack' bond like no other."


"Sadie sheds light on so many important aspects on human and canine relationships thru a unique storyline that will capture your heart, mind and spirit. This story addresses important moments of death (both of pets and humans), animal cruelty, humane treatment of pets and the not-so humane, animal shelters & foster caregivers... just to name a few.

The Cavern Kings (Volume 1) by Jeff Bauer (Nov 26, 2012)

(36) Reviews/Ranks 4.7 Stars  Available in Paperback or Kindle Formats

Josh Jensen is the self-perceived master of the underwater world and knows no fear. Until he almost drowns scuba diving with his friends in the calm crystal clear waters of a beautiful North Florida spring on a warm sunny day. Rattled by the wakeup call and unencumbered by wisdom, he decides to pursue training to master the cold water-filled dark places beneath a ceiling of impenetrable rock. Soon he and his divemates realize this sort of class isn’t just an easy lap around the pool. Their overbearing and harsh instructor challenges them to come to terms with life and death with only seconds of air to spare in claustrophobic passages. Josh has to juggle the pending sunset of one romantic relationship with the faintest glimpse of another, irate parents and a troubled boss ready to fire him. A diving tragedy stuns and deeply saddens Josh and he questions whether diving in caverns is too dangerous and even if he should continue diving at all. Dealing with the loss, he discovers a link to a diving fatality that estranged an experienced team of cave explorers in a deep Mexican cave years ago. New discoveries heal old wounds and bring enemies together as Josh struggles to find meaning in death. Few works of fiction capture the essence of cave diving and scuba literature is cluttered with many tedious non-fiction accounts of diving triumphs. Sprinkled with dramatic and realistic dive sequences penned by a real-life cave diving instructor, THE CAVERN KINGS is an adventure filled with dangers above and below the waterline that any reader will enjoy.

Josh Jensen dreams of becoming a member of the most elite cave diving team in the world. His biggest hurdle is that the head of the team hates his guts and doesn’t believe he has what it takes to dive with the best of the best.

In the sequel to "Sadie Sapiens", Sadie, a tiny Chihuahua who’s learned how to communicate, enjoys a tight bond with her pack of humans at the Institute for Non-Human Intelligence. Surrounded by loving people who support her, Sadie is driven by a primal need to find her lost puppies. Puppies torn from her cage at a puppy mill and scattered to the four corners of the earth. She wonders if they still live. Are they also intelligent? Mix in a colony of self-organizing dogs that want to be left alone and humans that hate them. Ruff.
