Meet Sadie & Ace

I realized the other day that my four-legged children haven't really made an appearance on the blog since it became Seasons with the Strattons.  A lot of this has to do with the fact that they have been living with my grandmother this season because we could never find a good way to get them to California.  I could never get to the point where I felt comfortable enough to put them on an airplane.  Plus, they were having entirely too much fun at my grandmother's playing with her dogs, swimming in the lake, and chasing the horses.  It's pretty much a dog's paradise.

But, since Virginia is within driving distance and Chris hasn't seen them since February, they made the trip with me last week.  They will probably stay the rest of the season, but we haven't completely decided yet!

I'm honestly not quite sure how I made it five months without them.  There were definitely tears, but I knew it was better in the long-run.  They are such sweethearts, and were both adopted from the Humane Society.  There will be a post soon on why I'm 100% behind always adopting, but that is a story for another day.

Meet Sadie!!
I got Sadie at the very end of my Freshman year at State.  Chris and I went to pick her out at the Humane Society in Tupelo with some friends from Starkville that had to come stay with us in Tupelo because of a city-wide power outage during finals week... Sadie lived with me in college, but is completely a daddy's girl.  She is our lazy baby, who would be happy cuddling on the couch all day and eating from our plates.



Meet Ace!!
We got Ace during our first Spring Training in Arizona because I was having a hard time adjusting to baseball life and being so far from home.  I told Chris I needed a baby or a puppy, and despite the fact he didn't think we needed another dog (we didn't) he agreed.  Ace is super smart and is OBSESSED with tennis balls.  If you are holding a ball and food, he is 100% focused on the ball.  He also really loves to swim!  He is seriously one of the sweetest dogs I've ever met, but is protective when I'm alone which I love! I know I'm biased, but really he is precious.  !




These two have traveled with me to road games, stayed in countless hotels, and are always great to have around when Chris is gone.  They can be protective which I love when I'm by myself.  Life is definitely easier without them, but I would take the chaos over being lonely any day.

Get ready for a lot more Ace and Sadie pictures now that they are with us on the road!

Do you have any pets? If so, what are their names?
