A Day in the Life of Sophie

Sophie’s a busy dog…

Her day begins early in the morning, when Rich gets up to start his coffee brewing. He lets her out of her crate and she comes up on our bed to sleep with me a bit longer.

After a few early morning stretches…

Sophie discovers that she made a mess of her bed last night and tries to lure me to straighten it up.

“What are we going to do today?”

0915151103

“How about we play with my cupcake toy?”

As I go out to the garage, Sophie asks, “Are we going somewhere?”

0917151625

And then decides if we are, it would be best if she untied my shoelaces because that’s what her job is… Day in and day out… Every time we go somewhere…

At this point she’s not sure if we’re going for a walk or for a drive. It’s best to see if the car door opens magically.

Once she’s in the car, it’s not quite as fun as she thought it would be.

Back from our drive, she needs a nap.

Nap’s over. “How about let’s play with my cloth Frisbee.”

“OK!”

“Wait a minute. I think I heard the UPS guy drive by…”

0917151912

“Time to fix dinner.” Sophie’s always VERY nearby to help.

She thinks if she looks pathetic enough, she’ll get more treats. Rarely works with me. Works well with Rich.  🙂

Especially at the dinner table.

And then it’s TV time on the couch.
