Pet of the Week: Sadie

POW Sadie 2.jpg

THIS IS MY dog Sadie. She is a girl. She is 9 years old. Sadie likes eating dog food and meat bones. The one thing Sadie LOVES is running and rounding up the cows. Her favorite thing to do with me is to play fetch. Sometimes she runs beside our four-wheeler and runs about 20 mph. Sadie is friendly with other dogs. When you take her picture she has no clue what you are doing. If a soccer team needed a goalie, they should pick Sadie!

Keep Counting Sheep.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — For the past 12 years, artist Carolyn Letvin has been engaged in a dialogue with sheep, with them becoming her primary source of imagery.
