Introducing Sophie

Sophie arrived at her forever home yesterday and we are absolutely thrilled. She is the teeniest puppy I have ever had. What a difference from Winston!

She is 26 pounds and a little sweetheart. She hasnt hit it off too well with Tabitha. When she came in the house she chased her down! I shouldnt laugh I did feel bad for Tabitha.

She seems to have settled well. She slept from midnight till 6am and I woke her up to take her out. She didnt make a peep and she loves her crate!!!

Very very food motivated. She knows her sit really well. DH taught her last night "look at me!" OMG she is smart!

This morning she went to the side stairs and sat so I took her out and sure enough she went potty! She has the runs a bit today but I think thats because she went for a really long time yesterday without food and she was starving last night plus its all new!

Without further adeau here is Sophie!!!

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

She looks happy and settled in already. What a pretty girl. And what a lovely, shiny coat. Shemust not have suffered any health setbacks if a gorgeous coat like that is any indication.

Thank you Loki Love!

I was actually very lucky to have found her through Rosies Animal Adoptions in Montreal. What a fantastic organization.

Also without the vital support of Luckypenny and Frenchy it would not have been possible.

Sophie was an owner surrender. She was purchased (unfortunately) from a pet store. Her owner is in the Military and sadly was asked to return to Afganistan and he sadly had to give her up. I hope someday he knows how lucky of a girl she really is!

OH I am so happy she (and everyone else) traveled safe and sound and has arrived home! I so wish I could have met her and you but am SO HAPPY she is home with you now.

I still have Ginger and Hobo's old beds as well and find a sense of comfort watching Zoey and Raggzy (and the cats LOL) lying on them. I got a warm feeling seeing Sophie on Winston's old bed

As you know, with puppies daily pictures are mandatory for the first year!!!!

So glad hubby is happy too...it is difficult when we are not at the same place when it is time to "love again". But with that cute face he would have to be made of stone

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy. And yes, Rosie's is a fantastic organization!!!
