Strutting her stuff on the Catwalk today, I have author
Patti Shenberger's gorgeous bundle of energy!
Please welcome Sophie!
Sophie, though when I was at the shelter it was Callista. I was adopted from the Michigan Animal Rescue League.
A nice warm bed and a three acre fenced in backyard to roam (not unattended, but there will come a day when I can check out that bichon next door.
My mom Patti. She calls me her Sophie Bug and kisses me lots and lets me take naps on her lap during the day. I just love that!
I love my bed and all the new toys. I have a stuffed frog that squeaks and a big pink squeaky bone to play with as well.
I am not impressed when we go out at 3:30 a.m. and the grass is frozen. My toes get cold and because I'm so low to the ground that frozen grass really tickles the private parts!
I want to grow up big and strong like the Bouvier across the street. She's allowed to cross the road all by herself (Sophie's Mom here - we do live on a gravel dead end road at the way back of a neighborhood. Regardless, Sophie is too little to cross the street!)
Sociable or Aloof
Very sociable. Except the cat was not impressed when I grabbed his tail and held on so he could drag me around the kitchen.
Night Owl or Early Bird
I'm an early bird. I go to bed about 9:30, have to get up only once so far to go out, and sleep till about 6. Then the day begins and I get to play with all my toys and annoy the cat.
Taking naps on Mom's lap cause she whispers in my ear and it tickles.
Ace, the 6 yr old cat. Dad says he really belongs to him though and I'm Mom's. Though Ace seems to think he can smack me on the head with his front declawed paws and I'll go away. Little does he know!
Hmm, not sure. So far it's Mom.
What do you like to sharpen your claws on?
It's not my claws they have to worry about. It's my needle teeth. Mom made a really weird sound the other day when I accidentally (I swear it wasn't on purpose) bit her thigh.
Most embarrassing moment
That's easy. I learned how to climb the steps to the deck the second day but had a slight problem with the dismount. So I did a sort of kamakazi, throw myself off the deck move and ended up getting grass up my nose. Not real fun.
Patti, thank you for letting adorable Sophie out to play on the Catwalk!
