As I sit with my Sofie girl, today she’s not feeling so hot. She recently saw the groomer, and I think they shaved her a little too close. She’s been scratching and biting herself constantly. The groomer saw no evidence of fleas. But my cute little snaggletooth girl is so itchy. I feel sorry for … Continue reading The Limericks of Sofie
Sofie’s cuddled up near me, and we are having a good day. She woke up a little earlier than usual. Believe me, I sure would have liked the extra hour I was hoping for, but up I got anyway. She follows me around the backyard as I tend my garden, and she sits with me … Continue reading Sofie
