Today is Sadie's 9th birthday

On this day, her ninth birthday, and pretty much like every day, I expect to be barked at, pounced on, gnawed on, and stalked. Then I can enjoy watching this crazy, crazy girl go crackerdog.

Sadie has the most wonderful facial expressions of any greyhound we've adopted. I would daresay that this photo exemplifies her personality better than any other picture I've taken of her.

Sadie and Katie

Happy birthday, Sadie, and may you have many more.

(Shot with the Nikon D200; Nikon 12-24mm zoom set at 12mm; program mode chose 1/80 sec @ f/7.1; ISO 450; SB-800 flash; slow-sync; auto white balance; normal JPG.)


  1. Haha, I totally love this picture!

    Happy Birthday, miss Sadie!!!

  2. Happy Birthday, Sadie:)

    That is the most gorgeous, expressive photo. She looks so cheeky and pleased with herself ... Katie looks pretty happy in the background too!

  3. I love the picture! Happy Birthday, Sadie! Not only does she have a great expression, Katie does in the background, too. I wonder what was so funny!
