   Leave a bone for Sophia

Nina Sophia, Howcomeyougottabesocute, Puddin' , SoFitterLings (don't ask what the means!)

Doggie Dynamics:
not playfulvery playful

Quick Bio:
-purebred-dog rescue

Ellie Mae, Chicken, Belly-Rubs, Liver Biscotti, Chicken, Kitties, stealing interesting objects.

Her collar & Harness. SHE HATES it when we put it on even though it means a ride in the car or a walk! She'll pout for hours after we take it off. Wash rags - residual from prior abuse at her last home. We're working on this and she is getting better.

Favorite Toy:
Ellie Mae of course, and any loose articles of clothing she can drag out on the lawn.

Favorite Food:
Orange OtterPops. Chicken, Ball Park Franks (special bathtime treat) and of course Chicken. She eats ANYTHING you give her, and some things you don't!

Favorite Walk:
In her own back yard, she does NOT like to go for walks as that means harness time!

Best Tricks:
Hmmmm...If she does tricks, she certainly isn't letting on.

Arrival Story:
After Delilah journeyed on to the Rainbow Bridge we knew we had room in our hearts to love another homeless pet. After weeks of searching, I found the Basset Rescue Connection and all of their wonderful hounds who reside at Daphneyland Ranch. Sophia was one of those hounds looking for a forever home. Well, she's found it! We are so happy to have her as a member of our family. She's got everyone wrapped around her little paw. Sophia's brother Sam was also adopted to a fabulous family. He seems to be living it up at his new home.

WHAT a cutie! This girl steals the hearts of all who meet her. She gets along with everyone here on our farm. She loves the cats, other dogs (especially Ellie Mae) and even the chickens! Sophia appears to have suffered from abuse at a previous home. NEVER again will she experience pain or abuse from the hand of a human. We'll make sure of that. She is shy at times and will hide under the kitchen table if she thinks she is in trouble (which she never is - she is such a gooood dog). She is quite frightened of wash rags or dish towels. But we're working with her on this and over time, she is getting much better. She is a love bug and wants to be in any available lap! We could not have asked for a better dog. Please encourage friends and neighbors to spay and neuter their pets. Adopt from a rescue if you can.

The things I have Stolen and Chewed To Shreds, an essay by Miss Sophia

Ode to the Things I have Destroyed

(Written of course in the First Doggy perspective)

I am quite proud of my chewing achievements. To date I have mangled many things precious to my slaves. A short list of items;
a new squirt gun
kid's snorkel
an orange Highlighter
not two but three gladware containers (lids and all)
my slaves sushi cookbook (dang!)
my slaves remaining flip flop (the right went AWOL last week)
kitchen trash spread on the lawn again (RIP McDonald's Hashbrown)
Three Otterpop wrappers (ha! they were empty!)
a Cell-O sponge (does that mean I my slave doesn''t have to wash dishes?)
my slaves hair brush, which now has a designer textured handle!
my she-slaves grey wool sweater from Old Navy
Not one but two of my neighbors underpants (she used our washer that day -her's was on the blink) were spread on the lawn for all to see
several cardboard boxes (I should win the prize for tiniest and most pieces)
a nail brush (left on the bathtub, great sub for a tooth brush)
The bathtub drain plug! (done with the intention of no more baths for the dogs - I'm everyone's heroine!)
I worked on the list above all spring and summer

As of late, I have chewed up
the tape dispenser
an 8mm home video
a sharpie pen
the fly swatter (I did this because I was hoping to win Biscuit's approval -rats - didn't work)
the shoe rack in the hall way
my mom-slave's NEW flip cell phone (if she's talking on the phone she cant give me her undivided attention!)
my mom-slave's best friend's cell phone
my boy slaves calculator (well actually two of them)
my boy slave's bike helmet lining
You see I just take anything I want off the table or shelves. I may have short legs, but I'm reeeeaaaalllll long!

My mom slave just shakes her head at me because I only chew things up when no one is looking. For a long time she blamed the garden gnomes and I just let her keep on thinking it was them! Hee Hee Arrhoooohoo hooooo! Must go scheme on my next item to chew....
