Sadie Mae Baird is a delightful real-life mixed breed dog rescued as a puppy by a very typical middle-class suburban teenage boy on Christmas Day, 2006. Sadie, however, is not a typical canine.

Sadie is a Canine Avatar, a living creature with a spirit that seems much older and wiser than her current incarnation would suggest possible. Sadie's purpose is to attempt to awaken the creatures residing upon planet earth of the inter-connectedness of all aspects of life to the expanded experience of us all. Sadie will warm your heart with her simple and practical approach to appreciating the beauty and bounty of life that surrounds each and every one of us each and every day.
