This is Miss Sophie. Miss Sophie and her "baby." She has several--the blue lion, the monkey, the little squirrels in their tree, but this--THIS ONE--is her favorite. I know they say dogs can't see color, but my girl is very partial to pink. There's no explaining it, it just is. She loves her pink baby,… Continue reading This Twisted Game of Fetch
The past couple of days have been unseasonably warm here in Georgia. I'm not complaining, mind you, but while I enjoyed the warm air and I think my toes might actually have defrosted, I knew better than to trust it. Sure enough, yesterday just before dark when Miss Sophie and I ventured out, there was… Continue reading The Birds Don’t Have a Weather App
Growing up I remember Mama being in the middle of her day to dailies, blowing upwards to move the hair out of her eyes, sighing, and saying, "When I come back, I'm coming back as a show horse.

And it's not like I picked out that name for myself or anything--they chose it.… Continue reading Guest Post: Miss Sophie Writes…..
Tonight's catchup post is brought to you by a stomach bug/fever suffering young'un and a tired Mama. First of all, this happened this week. This color, out of all of them, was the most stubborn.

First of all, let me assure you, there will be no pictures with this post. You're welcome. We took Miss Sophie to her first night of Puppy Beginner's class last night. The littles have been calling it Puppy School, and Cooter insisted that we needed to go out and get her a backpack and pencils. … Continue reading What I’ve Learned From My Pup’s “Little Presents”
