Everybody, meet Sadie! She’s a beautiful 6-year-old German Shepherd/Border Collie cross who was adopted from an animal shelter in 2009. According to her caretaker, Sadie loves learning new tricks. But don’t expect to see any of the regular dog tricks, Sadie recently learned to play the piano and she’s quite good at it. Yes, she makes mistakes, but at least she’s trying to improve. This takes me back to my first piano lesson. I remember it well because it was also my last. It ended with my mom crying and my brother screaming in the car. That’s all I’m going to say.
