Well, it has been almost 24 hours since Sophie joined us. So far it is not going too badly. She is a sweet tempered little thing and I think will be easy to train. She slept over 6 hours in her kennel before waking us up last night, which I think is pretty remarkable.
She especially seems to like men. (I think she's been primarily raised by a man up to this point). Just LOVED on Steve and R & A. She will lick you to pieces if you let her. Personally I don't appreciate puppy licks all over my face, but Steve doesn't seem to mind.
A and CB were still here last night when she arrived and got to spend a little time with her before heading back to school.
And, of course, she got to spend some time chewing on some of the toys that have been awaiting her arrival. We are hoping to provide ample toys and prevent too much puppy damage to furniture; rugs; shoes etc.. over the next 6 months. We'll see!
Sophie woke up today rested and ready for fun! She's already had two playdates with Molly next door (pictures with Miss Molly to follow in future posts). Molly is a 5 year old Wheaton Terrier with LOTS of energy. I think she has found her match in Miss Sophie!!
Steve had the afternoon off today after a long weekend on call, so he's been helping with her too. I think that Sophie tells him secrets about me already!
She had her first walk on a leash.....
And had some quality bonding time with big brother Sumo. (Who she is trying not to bug so much, but it's sooooo hard!!) We are hoping each day will get better for the two of them. Right now Sumo is 'tolerating' her, but doesn't seem too keen on becoming buddies.
Well, tomorrow is another day. I wonder what excitement it will hold. When you're a puppy, EVERYTHING is new and exciting!!! She even met llamas today. Whoa.. are they big!!!
Until Next Time.....
