It is hard to believe, but Sophie has survived her first year on earth. She has tried her hardest to be out of this universe. The amount of objects that she has eaten (not food) would have put a bigger dog down, but she is still standing. Last night she ate a paper clip. It came up mangled after an hour. Her newsprint obsession is still going strong. Everything is fair game.
This is Sophie on the day that I got her- Oct 12, 2014.005
The next day the biggies got to play with her a little more.
003011014004 By November, she had become a big part of the family. Everything belonged to her and she would challenge the biggies to any toy.004Christmas brought Sophie into the world of dress up. She was not happy.005She enjoyed have visitors. Dixie is one of her favorites.016She had a professional photograph done on the night of her graduation? from obedience school.009Her siblings were getting more accepting of her.013 On her birthday today, she is giving a kiss to her sister Shelby. They had just finished fighting over a toy and Shelby had graciously given in to her little sister again. She tried to referee, but gave up after bopping Sophie on the head a dew times. All is well until she eats something else that is not eatable- probably tomorrow.

      My reaction time is certainly improving. It is a challenge to get to something before Sophie has swallowed it. She allows me to open her mouth and stick my fingers in to retrieve the contraband.

      Thank you for your kind words. Scotties are awesome. I’ve been owned by them since 1968. I even had two stuffed Scotties in my crib as a baby.
