DogDaz Zoo: Happy 6th Birthday, SOFIE BEAR

25 Nov


It has been an amazing 6 years with Sofie Bear. She came to us a puppy full of spit & vinegar. The rescue thought she was a Collie/Shepard mix and would be about 70 lbs. Looking back she was probably older than 12 weeks when we got her because she stayed small. I think she is a Sheltie/Mischief mix.

Sofie was a smiling, stubborn, and playful puppy. She always had an independent streak and was head strong. She and I did lots of training in the first 3 years.

It is hard to remember, because time goes so fast, but it was somewhere around 4 years old that her night terrors and separation horrors started. That changed her a lot. But this year we finally got things under control with love, medication, and more love.

Sofie is my silly, rolly-polly, best friend, bundle of fluff (who happens to have some door eating and thunder storm issues). She has taught me patience, unconditional love, and mostly to see the world through the simple heart of a trusting soul.  


Just another DogDaz morning at the zoo ❤

    Happy Birthday, It’s tough to choose a favorite picture from that collection, they’re all SO cute. I think the smile in 2 is my winning shot. I can’t resist a grinning doggie. Have a wonderful day.

    Love and licks,
