This, my friends, is Sadie. She is one of my most important writing partners. She, like me, is a mutt. I'm not entirely sure what breed she is mixed with(besides Lab), but I have fun speculating. She was a rescue and she is quite the character. With her strange habits and long limbs she is often referred to as the alien dog by my family.
Still I couldn't get my writing done without her. She has a very specific and important job. See, Sadie, has decided where ever I write her spot is right next to my feet. If I stop typing for a second she comes to attention and must be pet while I think of what to write next.
Funny enough this helps. I read somewhere a while back that people with pets live longer and one of those reasons is petting them actually relieves your stress. Now I am sure for her it is just a way to get loved on, but for me it is a few seconds to relax and just have a clear thinking moment.
I've always loved animals, but this one has a special place in my heart.
Anyway, do you guys have a special writing partner? I will leave you with one of Sadie's wise looks, she is the all knowing dog. As always have fun and keep writing.
