Sophie-licious

Sophie says our cats have been getting too much blog-time lately, and she wants her moment in the sun.


"Uh oh. I think there's a cat behind you!"



"Never mind. It went away!"



Sophie is nine years old and mostly yellow Lab. She was born on a farm and adopted by another family, along with Tristan, before both dogs came to us at age 5 as the result of a family tragedy. Sophie is extremely sensitive, loyal, obedient, and wants to please. She is my heart dog and I love her to bits, even though she has become a little too diligent with the alarm barking lately. "Someone's here! SOMEONE'S HERE!  Barkbarkbarkbark! Somebody just drove up!"

"Oh wait, it's just Daddy. Never mind!"

She's a good girl and bilingual! She understands commands in French AND English.

I love you, my Sophie!

  4. I find Kane barks more now, too. The slightest noise in the direction of the front door and he's off on a tangent. I love the face of an older dog. So kind looking. "Hi Sophie, you sweetie"

    1. I wonder if it coincides with hearing loss, or if they are just more hyper-aroused to everything? I love old doggy faces too!

  6. She is a sweetie with those kind eyes and beautiful grey muzzle. Young dogs are great fun, but older dogs win my vote and my heart.

    1. They just don't live long enough!!! ANd since we got these two when they were already five years old, the senior years have come on much too quickly for us.

    1. She would love that. Her current fixation is the crust off my morning toast. She comes tearing in from outside in the morning and sits next to my chair, waiting for me to give her some crust. She's trained me well!
