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.”’

Sadie Saves: Special Edition

“Hi everyone, it’s me Sadie sharing a special and urgent request to help find a loving adoptive home for my newest Chihuahua friend, Rachel. Humans recently saved her from the deplorable conditions at a puppy mill. When she was brought to the Animal Aid Foundation here in Tallahassee, Florida, she was covered in filth and soaked in urine and feces. Their kind and compassionate staff have provided Rachel with a great deal of love and care. She has been bathed, treated for hookworms, spayed, and all her vaccines have been brought up to date.

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. Please come by and visit me today at Animal Aid or share my story with your family, friends and social networks. I’m hoping to find my forever family.”’

Sadie Saves: Puppies Update

“Hi everyone, it’s me Sadie, wishing you a happy Sunday! As promised, below is a pictorial and video update of the six puppies and their mother that our family is fostering here in Florida.  Needless to say, they are as cute as can be and lots of fun!  They all still look pretty much the same, but they are starting to develop personalities.  In a few weeks, they all are going to need names before they are available for adoption, and that’s the reason we’re having a NAME THESE PUPPIES CONTEST (just follow this link for more information.)  Hope you start thinking of some names and you submit them to me at by the contest deadline, which is August 1, 2015.  Hope you enjoy this update, and be sure to share with your family, friends and social networks.  Love, Sadie”

Wiener Dog Alert!

“It’s no secret that I love to interpret speech for my animal friends.  Well, this video doesn’t require my language skills because it’s just plain funny, and besides, Crusoe the Celebrity Dachshund and his pal do an excellent job of acting in their own very version of the Minions Movie.  Hope this makes you smile.  Love, Sadie

Chef Pierre has prepared a delicious soupe de bœuf for me, while daddy Michael and mommy Grace are enjoying Brie served with a crisp baguette and some Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Later today, we’ll walk all those wonderful calories off with a stroll through The Tuileries Garden.  Then tonight, the pièce de résistance – an evening dinner cruise on the river Seine, followed by an astounding fireworks display. I’ve put on my best beret for the event – what do you think, is it me? Well, my dears, I must run. Au revoir mon ami. <3 Tais Toi”’

"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.
