Sadie was not plain………..
Sadie was a surprise at 2:00am on May 25, 1999. Born during the night at the foot of my bed! We thought her dam had missed and was not pregnant, but she was and two puppies were born by surprise. Sadie survived, but her flashy brindle brother did not. After the surprise birth and the death of the Flashy male puppy, our thoughts as breeders were “great we have one plain puppy!” Well Sadie grew up healthy, had an excellent pedigree and very nice conformation, and as breeders, in our eyes, she was a keeper. We showed her a little, but being plain (lacking a lot of white markings) she would be noticed by some judges, but over looked by many. I even had a judge make a comment to me in the ring, “she is gorgeous too bad she is plain!” However, breeders always commented on her and the qualities she possessed. Sadie had a fan club at all the shows. Three people who come to mind are Sandy Gaynor, Larry Rosen and Joey Loeb. Sadie would get all wiggly when one of them would come over. I think Sadie enjoyed being held and hugged at ringside more than going in the ring!
Sadie was a great brood bitch. She loved her puppies and was one of the easiest whelpers we have had. I always joked that Sadie would sneeze and out would come a puppy. One litter consisting of eight puppies, was born in under 3 ˝ hours. We hardly had time to breath and another puppy was coming.
Sadie was the Dam of three champions:
Am.Hk.Ch.Cachet’s Exclusive Design “Halston”
Ch.Cachet’s Sequel "Savannah"
Ch. Cachet’s Sentinel “Slater”.
Sadie was born and raised at my home in Troy NY for her first four years. Then went to GA & SC to live with Lenny. Since Lenny splits his time between GA & SC homes, so did Sadie. She loved just being a house dog but she was no couch potato, even in her later years. When in SC on the beaches of Hilton Head, Sadie loved to walk with Lenny. Even at the age of 10, Sadie was still walking a couple of miles at a clip! At the 2009 Regional in MD at 10 ˝, Sadie was running around the ring in the Veterans class, enjoying the clapping and visiting with everyone. I’m glad I got to see her again one last time and be part of her last performance in the ring.
Sadie will be missed by all who loved her.
Sadie was not plain…….. Sadie was Special!
