I used to see this attractive girl staring at me as I ran at the Central Middle School track across the street (12th Avenue & C Street) here in Anchorage. So one day I saw — who I thought — the owner in the yard and she told me that blonde girl watching me out the window was Sadie, a 10 1/2-year-old labradoodle. I call her the “Mona Lisa Doodle.” After about three months, I met Sadie. We hit it off. Turns out she's a runner too! The windows to our worlds are all different. Now I'm not just a human that is a mystery blip on a track. I'm a human that Sadie knows. Sadie and Dave — different views, same curiosity. Have an Allgood news story? Email Dave at or
