Awww Monday: Sadie Love Mother's Day

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Sadie loves it when we visit Grandma and Grandpa.  Yesterday she spent a lot of time playing lifeguard by the pool:

By the time we left, she was one tired dog!

She really needed her nap!

  4. Dogs can sleep anywhere. Wish it was warm enough to use the pool here.
