It sleeps with us!

Not everyone feels comfortable letting their dogs sleep with them, but when you have this cute little face beside you making sounds on the pillow - how can anyone in their right mind refuse?

Sophie is such a beautiful little girl that she makes getting out of bed hard to desire. Sometimes waking up from a beautiful dream can be a challenge, but waking up with this little girl beside you is like waking up in heaven.

She snuggles up right against you and makes 'breathing' noises that sometimes consist of chop-licking and clicking sounds. There are other times when a sound in another room (someone making noise that hasn't gone to bed with the pack yet) will set Sophie off in a roaring 'R'-sound. What monster wouldn't be afraid of being 'cuted' to death? This little girl isn't afraid to represent and protect her home - even if it means being cute more than any living thing can handle.

Usually the noises she makes when she's sleeping - it's caused by her illusions of chasing squirrels. If you just mention the word 'squirrel' to Sophie - whether you're near a window with a view outside the house or driving along the highway - she looks up and around the ceiling where she knows squirrels hang-out. She can't wait to catch herself a squirrel someday.

Squirrel Patrol

Sophie loves staring out the window to look for squirrels and they're the first friends she looks for when she goes outside. Sophie would trek 3 miles in the snow without snow-boots if it meant there was a squirrel at the end of the trail.
