About

Hi there. My name is Deborah Flick and Sadie is my adolescent chocolate standard poodle. She’s 3 years old, shy, afraid of new people and things, and very sweet. She’s my teacher, and everyday, it seems, she challenges me with a new lesson plan. I must be a slow learner because Sadie insists that we cover previous lessons, practicing patience, for example, over and over. At this point I don’t see graduating from Sadie’s School for Hapless Humans anytime soon. But that’s okay. I’ll happily sit at the paws of the master for as long as it takes. Much easier was earning my Ph.D. in communication from the University of Colorado, Boulder. My professional background is in communication and diversity. You can find out about that at www.deborahflick.com. This blog is all about what Sadie is teaching me. For example, it is important to play with your friends everyday!

Here’s Sadie playing tug with her best friend, Romeo, aka Nutty. Because he is. In a good way.

    I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful posts, which I came across while looking for advice and tips on the Diamonds in the Ruff web site. My fiancee and I adopted a male pointer/collie mix puppy in January. He’s now 6 1/2 months old and we are desperately trying to stay ahead of his developmental stages and go into each one armed with as much information as possible. Your essays have a joyful gentleness that is inspiring. Good luck with Sadie!
