How do 7 years fly by so quickly? Didn’t I just bring this scrappy little puppy home in a rubber tub (because I didn’t have a crate for the car)? Sofie is a smiler. Despite everything that goes on in her anxious little head, she always wants to roll and smile at me. If there is one dog that has taught me a ton of lessons it is you, Sofie Bear. Patience is the biggest lesson and listening to what a dog needs. Thank you for teaching me to be a better dog parent. Happy 7th Birthday, Soda Pop!

Louise, aka Lulu Belle, is 8 years young today. How did that happen? She was just a scared 5-month-old puppy with a bad start. Now she is a wonderful (still scared) big girl. When I was adopting Louise, I did not start out looking for a black dog or a short hair. I was a fan of light colored long hairs. Louie was a silver poodle, Nikki a buff cocker, and Squash was an everything with the thickest coat in the world. We went to an adoption event to see this tan long haired boy dog that I found online but ended up falling for this shy short haired black dog covered in mange. I didn’t know then that black dogs are usually the last to be adopted and the first to be put to sleep. There is actually a name for it – Black Dog Syndrome. What a sad mistake if I passed over adopting Louise. She is a joy and has taught me so much.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! LULU
Louise would like everyone to adopt a less adoptable pet next time you have space for a new furball:
If the Vet does not see me then she won’t know that I am here and then she can’t take any more tests, right?
Oh no! The vet tech found me. Now I have to go in the back to that scary place.
Mom, you were supposed to save me from all the scary needles. But it is over now.
