Arrival Story:
Sophie is the fourth dachshund in this family. We waited over a year for her to be born, and we finally picked her up in February of 2005 in Flemington ,New Jersey from a reputible breeder, and she was looking forward to her life as a very spoiled show dog, like her brother. She pretty much runs the house. She is not much of an eater, so she has her mom making her special meatballs every week to keep her from looking like a anorexic weiner. This makes her sisters and brother very jealous because they don't have any trouble putting on weight, and get only their dry dog food. Sophie does not seem to like showing much, but enjoys the ride and all of the special attention she gets from her mommy and daddy when she goes to the shows. Mommy says that even if she doesn't win at the show, she will love me anyway. Although she is a show dog, she is our baby first, and gets attention every day in the form of hugs and kisses, walks (weather permitting) and sleeping on the sofa. She also loves the other three doxies Bailey, Greta, and Champion Tax Audit, and they usually all get along.

Sophie is a standard red smooth, and the sweetest little girl we know. She is such a submissive little girl that when her ball rolls near her brother, she is afraid to retrieve it and rolls on her back as if to say "please give me the ball back!" She loves to go for her walks, and once in a while she has a treat and gets to go to the pet store with her brother and pick out a new squeak toy.

Forums Motto:
One doxie is never enough.

Sophie back on the sofa

I guess I am back on the sofa again which is alright with me. Mom says that I am not put together right to be a show dog so I have to be happy as a sofa dog and a squirrel security guard. I thought all my parts were in the right places, but if the judge says they aren't well I guess we have to believe him. I am a pretty easy going little girl. I guess I would have to be since at one of the shows, I fell out the car door. My human brothers back door of his car was broken, and when we turned the corner, it opened up and out I went. Luckely we were only in the parking lot, or else we would have needed CPR for my mom, since when she saw me standing there in the parking lot, she nearly stopped breathing. I was fine and just standing there looking and wondering what had happend. She grabbed me and hugged me like she hadn't seen me in years. Humans sure do worry about us dogs. I guess we wouldn't have it any other way. Buy guys Love forever on the sofa Sophie


We are going to try that Showing thing again.

Yes ,mom says that we are going back in the show ring. We went on a trip to New Paltz , New York where we met a few people that said that there is no reason that I can't be a finished champion like my brother Tax Audit. I am going back in the show ring but with a handler this time insted of my mom. Mom says that I should have the chance to be the best I can be, and if I become a champion then maybe my next move will be to tie the knot with Tax Audit and start a family.Well, wish me luck and hopefully by next year I will be the champion mom always knew I could be.


Sophie may be retiring from showing, but not from fun.

Well, my mom says that I am retiring from the dog show world. I am not sure why, the food is good, and it is fun to ride in the car with my family, but mom says that isn't enough, I also have to look perfect, which I thought I did, but I guess the judges didn't agree.
Mom says that although she loves me no matter what, I will not be able to say I am a finished champion like my brother Tax Audit. She says I will be 1 point Sophie forever and just enjoy playing around the house and the park and maybe visiting my buddies at a dog show now and then. Mom says that my disabled sister Greta is a Canine Good citizen and maybe I might like to do that too.
You know, any of you doggies out there reading this and saying " Gee, I am not a show dog, what can I do?" There is a lot us non-show dogs can do. We can enjoy our family by making sure they always keep us safe and warm preferably, in their bed or on the sofa. We can help to keep them in good physical shape by constantly bugging them to take us for a walk , even if we don't need to use the potty.We can make sure our home is always safe from preditors such as squirrels, or rabbits that may choose to invade our happy home, and we can also show our family how much we love them by giving them lots of hugs and kisses, and never letting them forget how much they mean to us.
What do you think non-show dogs? Do you think you can deliver? If you do these simple things I am sure that you will be the champion of your household or at least have fun trying.
Good luck guys and girls, I know you will give it your best shot. Love Sophie
