More Details

About Sophie

Sophie loves to play fetch with a ball, and she is very good at catching the balls in the air. Most of the time I will let her chew the ball in my lap until she lets go and sits down, and then I will throw it for her. She has to drop the ball on her own before I throw it. She also loves to cuddle and she loves belly rubs. She spends the day following me around the house. She will try to play rough with Buddy, and when she does that I always tell her to stop because Buddy doesn't like it. I can tell when he doesn't like it because he will start to whine.

  • Gets along with other dogs: Yes
    She is hesitant about new dogs or dogs that are far away. She needs to meet any new dog friend on neutral territory, such as a park or the dog park, and lots of treats need to be given to her before they meet.
  • Gets along with cats: Yes
    She loves cats, but cats don't often like her. She will try to chase and play with them, and most of the time you have to say "Sophie, Sophie, Sophie stop" to get her attention.

Special Requirements

Sophie is allergic to bees, and coincidentally she LOVES to try to eat them. If she is stung, give her two tablets of diphenhydramine (25mg each), also known as Benadryl, and make sure to remove the stinger. She will swell in the area that she is stung but the swelling will go down if she is given Benadryl. Sophie is also allergic to chicken and is not allowed to have human food.

About Buddy

Buddy is the most gentle dog that you will ever meet. He walks and moves very slowly because he has bad hips. He lays there and whines a lot whenever I am playing with Sophie because he gets jealous, but he won't get himself up to play. He loves to be brushed and petted, and I try to massage his hips whenever I get a chance to relieve some of the stiffness in his joints. He will come when I call his name and is just generally a very loyal dog.
