This entry is about Sophie Sophie's day in the sun!
Yesterday, I was volunteering for KPR at PETCO and brought Sophie. Both other pugs had gone solo, so it was her turn. I was worried she'd be too clingy or whiny, but she did great!
I had to miss a lunch with Brian and our fantastic aunt Pam (remember her?) so they stopped by PETCO to say hi! It was right about time for me to pack up, so they invited me to go with them to visit Brian's grandma in her nursing home. I was worried about leaving Sophie in the car, but it turns out, they allow dogs in there. Of COURSE I jumped at the opportunity to take Sophie!
She was fantastic. I have never seen Brian's grandma so alert and happy. She was very excited to pet Sophie and kept saying that she loved her. Many other residents came up to us and wanted to pet her. She really lit everyone up with smiles. Granted, Sophie is NO therapy dog. I wouldn't trust her on anyone's lap, and I had to watch her paws because she refuses to get her nails trimmed (we have to take her somewhere to get it done, and have someone hold her down... traumatic.) However it was great to see how calm she was with everyone petting her, it seemed like she really enjoyed the attention!
And hopefully you have enjoyed these random photos of our beer-loving pug!
Also, Coco tagged us in the Sixth Folder meme. Believe it or not, that's my Oliver folder, filled with (mostly scanned) pictures of Oliver, my first pug. Here is the picture:
This is at my grandma's shore house in Spring Lake, NJ. We were there for a while with my aunt while my mom moved- we had to move suddenly after my dad died. My aunt surprised us by bringing Oliver down too! He had a great time, and since Mom wasn't there, he got to sit at the dinner table with us. I have great memories of the shore and am glad that Oliver got to share it with us once!
For anyone who wants to do this- you're tagged! Here are the directions:
- Post it on your bloggy and tell the story that goes with the picture.
- Tag 5 other glorious peoples to do the same thing and leave a comment on their bloggy tellin' them 'bout it.
