"That's the dog that won the show!" exclaimed passersby as she was whisked from one spot to another.
On "Good Morning America," Sadie was rushed into a makeup room, where she perched on her chair and leaned to check herself out in the mirror.
Rangel brushed out her beard, twisted her lengthy eyebrows and spritzed her with water.
After "The View," Sadie's schedule includes a visit with Donald Trump
