Likes: Laying on the couch, sleeping on the bed, getting petted, chasing Mom around the apartment, and bully sticks.
Pet-Peeves: Having to walk in the rain or snow. Also I hate getting my picture taken and will run when I see the camera.
Favorite Toy: My kong! It is the greatest thing ever! It is a neverending supply of snacks!
Favorite Food: Merrick's and any kind of chew treat.
Favorite Walk: We walk all around the apartment complex. When spring comes, we will start walking in the park.
Best Tricks: Looking so amazingly cute all of the time. Also, conning humans into carrying me places so I don't get my paws dirty.
Arrival Story: Well, what a life of ups and downs I have had! I was born into a puppy mill where I spent the first few years of my life. Babies and more babies! And do you think any of them stuck around to check on little ole' mom? Nope! How ungrateful! Finally I retired and the rescue people took me in. They were really nice to me and found me a good home. But then, the family that had me, had to give me back. I was so sad and confused. :( So, back to rescue I went. Then, in November, mom lost her Angel. She missed having a pup in the house, and saw me on petfinder, and came to get me! So, I went home with her on December 8, 2007. It is so nice to have a furever home!
Bio: I was chosen Dog of the Day for Sept. 20, 2008. Isn't that amazing? A little ole pup like me! To think of where I came from to how great I am doing now...mom says she is so proud of me. .... Today is my one year anniversary with mom! Yippee! She says I have come so far and we are so happy together.
Hello Dogster pals. Sophie hasn't written in her diary in a long time, but we wanted to let all of her pals know that Sophie crossed to Rainbow Bridge yesterday. She had kidney disease, along with her collapsing trachea and chronic pancreatitis. Her little body wanted to fight but just couldn't anymore.
She enjoyed two last great days of visits to the park, a lot of love, belly rubs, ear scratches and pets. I told her over and over and over what a good girl she was, and how much I love her. I told her a thousand times but it will never be enough. Not enough words to describe how much I love her.
She was my very best friend, my best pal, my best girl. The best dog in the whole wide world.
Sophie, Mommy loves you and misses you so much, forever and ever.
Yesterday was my Gotcha Day/Birthday! Can you believe it has been five years since I adopted my mom. Time sure does fly! Mom tells me that I am now 10 human years old. I don't understand the way humans tell time, but I think I do not look a day over 7. I am doing furry good. I suppose I am starting to feel my age a tiny bit, I do have a bit of arthritis but I take a supplement for that. And I do have a hard time hearing mom sometimes, but she thinks I am selectively hearing. BOL!
I hardly remember my old life. I had no idea then that you could adopt a human of your own and they would love and take care of you. I can't believe what I was missing! These are my favorite things about human adoption:
1) I always have food in my bowl, and treats in my jar.
2) My mom always knows what to do when I am not feeling well. She takes good care of me, and in return, when she is home sick from work, I do my duty and sleep next to her all day.
3) I have my very own queen sized bed, that I let mom sleep in.
4) Cuddle time in the morning. Besides when mom comes home from work, this is my favorite time of day. After mom gets all ready for work, she sits on the couch and I jump up next to her. Then I rub my head and body all over her clothes and get cuddles and pets and kisses. Then I roll over for belly rubs. This is the best!
I am so glad I adopted mom. I wish for everyfur to know love like I do now.
I miss you all so much! Just wanted to pop in and say hi and how are you. Life is good for me and I hope it is for everyfur. The only thing going on for me is that I am coughing just a bit more which I am sure is because it has gotten hotter here. The good thing about this is that now I get tasty honey a couple of times per day for my throat. Also now mom carries me up and down the stairs like the princess that I am. She does not want me exerting myself whatever that means.
Yesterday morning I had some excitement. Mom and I went outside for my morning business and a giant raccoon went running from the yard into the woods. OMD he was big. Bigger than me!! It was scary. But that is life in the country I guess.
I miss hanging out on Dogster and I hope all my friends are doing well.
