Hey sorry it took so long. Hamera is now named Grutson. I know its a strange name, but it was my dad's female pitbull's name when he was a kid. She is a sweet dog and obeys orders pretty well. Everyone compliments and asks us about the "red one." She gets along with our dog Bella pretty well, but I have to be firm with both of them here because Bella is an unfixed female. She is great with our son and he loves her; she has always been gentle with him... Her game drive is very strong and I have to watch her closely when introducing new dogs, but I knew that would be part of the package haha. She is very obedient though and walks right next to me without a leash.

Today I was at the dog park with Bella and Grutson. She did very well until a huge great dane growled at me. Right then, Grutson jumped in between us and got in his face. She followed that dog around for the next ten minuted or so and made sure he did not get within ten feet of me. When she got tired, she stood right by me until the dog left the park. It was awesome. She is only 6 months and about 45 pounds but she was not scared of a 110 lb dog at all and actually had him running away in about three seconds (I asked the owners how much he weighed). I hope all is well and I will keep you in my prayers. Thanks :)

Sadie is from the Ginger/Red litter and I am lucky to have ended up with her. I was signed up for the Sadie/Red litter and Sadie had not had her puppies yet when Alexa posted individual pics of Ginger's pups. Something attracted me to the pup who is now Sadie even though I was waiting on my puppy to be born. I have seen a lot of puppies online but this one kept me thinking about her. At first I just kept letting it go and tried not to look at the puppies on the site. Then when I did look, she was still there waiting for a home so I e-mailed Alexa and said I like this puppy and was Sadie going to have puppies this time. Alexa said Sadie wasn't having puppies and if I wanted the Ginger puppy then "she's yours". I was so happy to have a puppy after almost a year of waiting and mourning the loss of my pit Zena. I know if Sadie would have had her puppies then I would have had two because I just had to have this one.

My sweet Sadie is fun to have and she is full of energy. She is a brat, she likes to play with anything she's not supposed to have. She thinks it's a game to grab my shoe and run through the house while I try to trade for a toy but if I really want it back I just tell her to "sit" and she lets me take it. She is very protective when we are in the car, when we are stopped at a light sometimes the bums come up to the car to ask for money and she sits up real straight and does a low growl at them. They are the only people she doesn't seem to like but she is very friendly with everyone else. She should be on a Petco commercial, she knows when we are in the parking lot and after we get to the sidewalk she becomes excited and goes through the door as if she is going "weee" this is fun. I have a harness on her so she doesn't choke herself while she tries to run but the floor is slick which is good for me. She gets a lot of exercise running and not going very fast. I don't choose to make her behave on the leash when we are here because there is something about being in Petco that she likes but she is much quieter in Petsmart. The only reason that I can think of is all the employee's at Petco pet her and make a fuss over how pretty she is and the Petsmart employee's don't make time for her, guess where I spend my money. The manager of Petco came out and she loved on him so he gave her a pink frisbee.

Sadie loves water and I can't take a shower without her. Sometimes I don't want her to get wet so I tried to leave her out of the bathroom twice but she made so much noise that I gave up on that idea. If I close both curtains she doesn't try to push her way through, for now, but she barks at me in protest. I am just happy she loves water so much. I have a squirt gun and she likes me to shoot water in her mouth, she goes wild with the hose and likes the kiddie pool. I brush her teeth and she likes it, she chews on the brush and I hold her lips up to get her teeth clean. The cat is good with her and puts up with her slobbering all over him but he runs when she steps on him but he always comes back for more fun. Sadie is a clean dog, she was easy to house break or she came that way. She also goes on pee pads. I have to keep her in a kennel when I'm at work because she likes any wall plug or wires that she can find. I have most of them where it would be hard for her to get to but not impossible so for her own safety she stays in the kennel. I read where a dog should have a kennel just big enough for them to turn around in so they will feel secure and not to leave them in longer than they can go without relieving themselves which with Sadie I don't agree. Sadie feels secure with herself and she doesn't like to be in a small space. I don't expect a puppy to go all day without going to the bathroom so Sadie has a big kennel and recently went to a bigger one. She goes to the bathroom in the back and has her bedding, water and a kong toy in the front. It sits on my bed where Sadie likes to be when she is resting and I also leave the TV on for company. Sadie is cuddly at night and sleeps with me until she has to go out early in the morning then she slobbers all over my face which gets me up fast to take her out. She is smart and fun to have. She is a great puppy and will be a great dog, hopefully for a long time. I feed her good food which is what Alexa feeds her dogs and I don't let the yard men spray chemicals on the grass. Hopefully, the things I do for her will keep her in good health to enjoy a long life. I love her.
