Owner: Jason Haas
Affiliated Winery: Tablas Creek Vineyard (read more about their regenerative organic farming practices in the April 30, 2021 issue article, "Green Teams," and about their working dogs, Bjorn and Adelita)
Location: Paso Robles, Calif.
Dog Name: Sadie
Dog Age: 6
Breed: Australian Shepherd
In a Word: Joyous
Job Title: Executive sock thief
Star Quality: The fact that she will follow you anywhere because she's convinced that any situation is made better by her involvement.
Best Bud: Sebastian, our 13-year-old son
Favorite Possession: She has this ratty old squeaky corn on the cob toy that she digs out even when we bury it in a pile of other toys.
Favorite Getaway: Under the desk wherever I'm working.
Favorite Activity: She does love both barking at the UPS person and chasing squirrels, but her favorite thing is to steal socks. Only socks, no other clothing. And it doesn't matter if they're clean or dirty. But she'll sneak into our bedrooms and make off with a mouthful of socks at any opportunity.
