Sophie is very popular with the kids in my apartment complex. When they are out playing she does not bark at them and pretty much ignores them when we walk past them. Most of them want to come up and pet her and a few are very afraid because she is a large dog. Tonight there was a little girl about 4 years old that was so afraid of Sophie and her older sister was trying to get her to calm down and pet Sophie. To try to calm her sister, this girl said, "Sissy, it's just like a cat, but a dog." There you have it.
I took this picture of Sophie tonight and she is so adorable. As we were walking back from our walk tonight this guy stopped us and asked what kind of dog Sophie was. After I told him he said, "She is going to be a big dog." I told him she was 10 years old and he about fell over. That is the 4th person in the last few weeks that has said Sophie looks like a puppy. I must be doing something right because I have a 10 year old dog that looks like a puppy and a 21 year old cat that still acts like a kitten most days. Maybe they will live forever.
Tonight MJ called me and asked if I would be interested in going to the farm with her tomorrow (today). Ummmm....I didn't have to think about it. Time Warner is suppose to come out tomorrow (today) to install my home phone, but I would be willing to reschedule them to have a chance to go out to the farm. You have no idea how excited I am. Once she gets me to the farm, I may never want to leave.
