Meet Our New Household Member!

Hello again my dolls!

I wanted to quickly introduce our new family member! πŸ™‚

Remember when I posted my Meet My Family post? Well, it was for a purpose trust me, because we knew we would be welcoming a new member! πŸ™‚ And also it was for some future posts.. But more on that later…

Her name is Sophie!

We are essentially her third owners (I believe), though she’s more my brother’s dog than mine. One of my mom’s co-workers gave Sophie to her because I think she was unable to care for her or maybe she couldn’t have pets in her home or apartment? I don’t know the full story..

Anyway, my mom kept her for…almost two years. My brother moved over there last year and stayed for about a year, but he came back to live with us in March because he didn’t like it over there. But while my brother was there, she got attached to him, and when he left, she stopped eating. So I suggested that my mom bring her when she came for a vacation.

And she brought her! We picked up my mom, my sister and Sophie in Boise, Idaho. πŸ™‚ She was a little shy and timid at first, but she came around quickly. She’s super friendly, good with kids (though she does get annoyed by them if they bug her too much) and is generally a calm dog. It has NOT been easy teaching Ciel to leave her alone, he constantly bugs her and it annoys her.. *sigh*. She’s also eating now! Yay! But now that my mom is gone, I think she still misses her and my sister so she’s still adjusting.

Aside from that, my mom tells me she’s 8 years old, she doesn’t like toys much, except balls. She’s house trainedβ€”lets us know when she needs to go pottyβ€”she NEVER gets on my couches, and she doesn’t go into our rooms unless you tell her it’s okay. She also loves sun-bathing and loves being outside in the fresh air.

She’s a great pup and a good official “first dog” for Ciel after the dog we attempted to have last year didn’t work out 😦 But we hope that we can teach Ciel how to treat dogs because she’s the perfect dog for that. And in the future I hope to bring in another (bigger) dog that will get along with both Sophie and Ciel.

But yeah, this is Sophie! She’s getting attached to me too, she follows me around and waits for me at my door when I wake up in the morning. Too cute!

Do you guys have pets? If so, what and how many?

    Oh my goodness, yayyyy!! I’m SO excited that you guys were able to keep her! Sophie is just adorable and she sounds like the most well-behaved dog ever! Such a cutie. Is she a chihuahua mix? She looks on the smaller side, though that might be the pictures. I’m so happy for you guys! Having a furry friend around is the BEST.

      She’s definitely precious! And I made the decision to have her live with us because her not eating concerned me a great deal, and now she’s eating so so well! So happy to have her here. She’s sleeping right next to me as I write this up πŸ™‚
