K came home this past weekend and couldn't believe how much Sophie had grown!!! It had been quite a while since she had seen her. We didn't get much time with K... but enjoyed what time we had! She'll be home for a week around Thanksgiving (A will be as well) so we are looking forward to that!!
She did come with me on a couple of our walks around the back pasture. These walks have quickly become one of my favorite times of the day. The dogs love them too!!!
It is amazing how Sumo's stamina has increased since we started. He even breaks into a run now and again!! I really do think that Sophie has added a missing element to Sumo's life. The puppy in him is emerging and I do believe he's happier.
Sophie still enjoys her daily fence visits to the llamas. I am pretty sure that Sophie would love to play llama round up or something. If we'd only let her inside of the pasture....
She's content to play fetch with whatever ball she can find. This is one of her favorites. (A semi deflated red rubber ball). When she first came she could barely drag this thing around. Now she can run full speed with it in her mouth!
And just for fun I thought I would share this picture of the lone Alpaca who lives next door. His name is Hoover and he just cracks me up. Whenever I feel that I am having a bad hair day, I just need to go stand by Hoover and the feeling goes away!! Isn't he a riot?
Sophie's tip for the day: Find someone that you really look up to and want to learn from and go for a long walk. (You may not want to lick their face and nibble on their ears... it's not as socially acceptable for humans as it is for dogs!!)
Sumo's tip for the day: Take advantage of nap time. (Both your own and that of annoying little puppies!!).
Until Next Time.....
