Hypnosis



“My friend, Pinky says, ‘Now just relax and look deeply into my eyes. You are feeling very drowsy. You are under my command. You are in my power, and you will do whatever I ask.”’

Olé!



“Hi, it’s me Sadie here.  Last week I introduced you to my newest cyber pal, the beautiful and famous, Tais Tói, a/k/a Jolie, who is a member of the Renaissance performance troop, TheTrouvéres. Well, she’s stopping back today while on her world tour to share a new picture and some ‘Doglish’ conversation.

Tais Tói says, ‘Greetings friends and fans from Mexico! I’m having a wonderful time here. The people are very nice, the weather is warm and the food is wonderful! Wish you could all be with me to share. By the way, what do you think of my new hat? Is it me? Whoops! Gotta go! Catch you next time! <3  Tais Tói"'

The Trio



“Collie says, ‘Okay guys, listen up! Let’s just try to act real nonchalant when that Great Dane comes over here. Tell him we’re practicing for our Barber Shop Trio debut, and if he’d like to join us, we’d love to make it a Quartet - provided he can howl bass. Just remember, this is HIS back yard!”’

Sadie Saves



“Hi, it’s me Sadie, and of course you know what we do on Sunday! It’s time to take another look at my animal friends that need your help in finding their ‘forever families.'  Last week, I featured my friend ‘Rusty,’ who is still hoping to find a home. Rusty is a very special fellow - an Ibizan Hound/Terrier who is three years old and is staying at TheSecond Chance Animal Shelter, East Brookfield, Massachusetts. “


 



“Here’s what Rusty has to say, ‘ Hello there! I'm kind of a shy guy but don't let that deter you. Once I check you out I like to lay my head in your lap for some petting. I'm very sweet and I just want a human companion to love. I would do best in a quieter home with lots of love. Once you get to know me I'm pretty playful and love to bounce around!”’




“Please share Rusty’s picture and story with your family, friends and social networks, and together we can find him a good home.  If you have any questions, be sure to contact The Second Chance AnimalShelter and tell them you are inquiring about Rusty. His identification number is: 24842859 . Thank you. Love, Sadie”

My Newest Cyber Pal



“Hi everyone, it’s me, Sadie. I’m so excited; I have a new friend and cyber pal! Her name is Tais Tói, and she’s like, so PRETTY and FAMOUS, and in SHOW BUSINESS! Right now, she’s sending me photos from her travels around the world and I wanted to share them with you. Tais Tói (which means 'shut up' in French!) also goes by the name 'Jolie' when performing on stage with the Renaissance troupe TheTrouvéres. She definitely manages the troupe (as well as the audience) if they get a bit rowdy.

"Here’s what Tais Tói has to say: 'Hello everyone, I’m so pleased to meet you and I send a big ALOHA from Hawaii. (Sadie, I’m so excited to converse with you in Doglish! Not many animals understand the language, let alone humans.) Thank you Sadie, I’ll report back from my next location soon. <3 Tais Tói'"

Sadie Saves



“Hi, it’s me Sadie, and if you’re a regular follower of my blog, you know that Sunday is the day that Sadie Saves by bringing to your attention my animal friends that need your help in finding their ‘forever families.’ With that in mind, please remember what Gandhi once said, ‘The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.’ I hope that you will keep that thought in mind and help me find a home for my male friend, Rusty. He’s a very special fellow, an Ibizan Hound/Terrier who is three years old and is staying at The Second Chance Animal Shelter, East Brookfield, Massachusetts. “

Lincoln's Birthday



“Hi, it’s me Sadie. Today we celebrate the birth date of President Abraham Lincoln.  Did you know that the President had two pet cats?  One was named, Tabby and the other, Dixie. They were given to him as kittens from Secretary of State William Seward. It is said that Lincoln once remarked ‘Dixie is smarter than my whole cabinet!’ Hmm. Something to think about. Cheers, Sadie.”’

Sadie Saves on Sundays



“Hi, it’s me Sadie. I hope you’re having a splendid Sunday! 

 


I’ve been thinking about something that Charles Darwin once said, ‘The love for all living creatures is the most noble attribute of man.’ That being said, it’s time for me to share some pictures and information about my newest friend, who is looking for his forever family!  If you help me get the word out, you are indeed a noble human! Here goes –  this is my friend Max."'

"Max is a sweet year-old boy looking for a permanent home. He's hanging out with some human friends of mine, enjoying warm evenings next to the fire with the rest of a pack of my Chihuahua friends.  They report that he fits in well with other dogs, is skittish at first but, like a Florida winter day warms up quickly.

Max is looking to bond with a permanent human and their family.  He’s energetic, playful and mostly trained to do his business in one place that humans prefer. Max is available for adoption through the Tallahassee, Florida Animal Services Center. Hope you’ll share Max’s story with your family, friends and social networks. Thank you. Love, Sadie”

UPDATE at 8:02 PM EST -

But, I also hope you’ll check in every day for my special translations for all my animal friends. Love, Sadie.”

Kit Opera



“Baby Artic Fox sings that old Neapolitan favorite, ‘o sole mio sta nfronte a te! ’o sole, ’o sole mio, sta nfronte a te, sta nfronte a te! (Translated:  It's my own sun that's upon your face! The sun, my own sun, it's upon your face!  It's upon your face!’)   I think he’s wonderful - I adore opera!  Just sayin’. – Love Sadie”’
