Miss Shagbottom isn’t known for her…tact. This video was taken back when Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey was under public scrutiny (again) for the bridge scandal. The star of our show is most unkind to Mr. Christie, as her angst about Republican tomfoolery has reached its limits.
March has whipped in like a lion! It’s absolutely frigid here. The snow is taking a slow melt as temperatures gradually climb above freezing. It makes me long for Spring even more. So, I won’t torture anyone with images of lovely, colorful flowers.
Instead, let’s feature pets. More specifically, a feature on rescue pets. Sadie Sue Shagbottom came to me via Adopt A Lab.org. and Pepper Potts is my friend’s cat who she rescued from H.O.P.E rescue (Homes for Orphaned Pets Exist). Adopt don’t shop is my creed, but I’ve run into a snag with that as I’m looking for a Great Dane. MAGDRL refused to speak to me because I live in the city in an apartment. I can’t put up a fence, so no dog, regardless of having had a special needs Jack Russel for 13 years, or rescuing my Golden Lab. They’re really strict with whom they home their pets with. They’ve been burned by people who return them too often. Danes, above all, are probably not the most successful loves to re-home. They’re huge. People don’t get how huge. Therefore, they’re powerful. Properly adjusted and trained, they’re lap dogs–naturally docile couch potatoes. In the wrong hands, this large breed can be a danger to people. MAGDRL is doing everything they can to limit failed homes and bad situations. Unfortunately, that drives someone like me off to a breeder. Danes, despite what they say, do not show up in shelters in my area. And, it is that specific breed I want to be part of, as rescuer, mom and advocate. Eventually, I will rescue one–because eventually I will be in a situation that meets their requirements, and I won’t give up. That, in essence, is the type of person they want to rescue their pups.

When it comes to getting her play on or indulging in a treat, Sadie Sue is a serious dog. To get her what she wants, she has to have the attention of the human. Usually that human is her mom. Unfortunately for Miss Shagbottom, her mom is also a writer, which means mom’s head is glancing ever on a computer screen and not on the dog where it should be! Sadie has tactics though. She’s resourceful. Never fear, for she gets whatever her little red furry heart desires.
It’s playtime! #7
Star of Shagbottom Theater, Sadie Sue Shagbottom, celebrated her 5th Birthday on January 10. She had chicken and fries for supper, a piece of vanilla cake and got three new toys! She thinks the hedgehog is scary and isn’t clear on the plastic meat looking thing, but that bacon tasting chew bone is going to be the best ever.
Happy Birthday, Sadie Sue Shagbottom!
This month can leave us wishing for better days, as the bitter winds blow in the northern hemisphere. Never fear, for images of warmer times and climes are available at the drop of a mouse button (plus one warmly wrapped pup. Yes, that’s Miss Shagbottom of Shagbottom Theater).
