Sofi, My Adorable Alarm Clock

I’m not sure if Sofi hasn’t quite adjusted to the time change from a few weeks ago, or what, but this little doggie has insomnia. Of course, when you spend your days lounging around taking puppy naps, you’re naturally going to want to play all night. Lately, this is the face that wakes me up […]

2 Paws Up: Homemade Frosty Paws Doggie Dessert

A few months ago I was pursuing Pinterest, as I do daily, and I came across a recipe for homemade Frosty Paws, a frozen dog treat. I’d actually never bought Frosty Paws for Sofi, but Minnie loved them, and I knew Sofi would too. The recipe was so simple that I knew I’d rather make […]

Sofi’s New (Molly Mutt) Bed

Sofi’s never been a dog to sleep in just one spot. She’s just as likely to be found laying on the bathmat in the bathroom as at the foot of my bed. I’ve purchased a few different beds over the past year, and none of them seemed to be her “spot.” Until now. Long ago […]

Good Morning!

This is the face I see when Sofi thinks I’ve been a bit of a sleepyhead. During the school year we wake up around 5:15am, so we’re taking advantage of the summer and lounging ’till 7 or 7:30 each day. This morning I was reading, and finally at 8am, Sofi nudged me and gave me […]

Flowers? Sofi’s Specialty!

If I ever get married someday, I think I know who the perfect flower girl will be!! Sofi loves eating the roses that are just about spent. Luckily, 1. they’re edible and 2. she leaves the younger blooms alone. These roses must’ve been especially tasty, because she left a path of floral destruction in her […]

One Year with Sofi!!

One year ago today, I brought Sofi home from the airport to start our life together.  We’ve had so many adventures over these past 12 months, but the times that I’ll cherish the most are the quiet ones that happen every single day: the cute looks that she gives me, the little cuddles we share […]

Happy 1st Birthday, Sofi!

I can’t believe that it’s been 3 months since I posted. Sofi is doing fantastically well and our daily life has gone into a really lovely routine, so I guess I don’t think about capturing the moments as much as I did when she first came to me and everything was new. Still, today is […]

A sick Sofi teaches me a lesson

Tonight I had a huge scare with Sofi. It had been a normal enough day, she was in her puppy area while I was at work.  Then I came home, let her out, and we went straight to the backyard so we could get some exercise.  I threw the ball, she ran.  She jumped and […]

Sofi’s 1st Thanksgiving

Sofi is one of the things that I’m especially grateful for this year. She adds joy to my life and reminds me to enjoy the here and now. I live in the moment when I’m with her and I realize what is truly important. She has given me perspective and patience. She is amazing and […]
