She is the best thing since sliced bread. I often tell my sons (both of them) that I don't think I ever loved them as much as I do her. They BOTH looked at me and said "we know exactly how you feel, we feel the same." She is a trained service dog for both my son Brian and me. She has more frequent flyer miles than I do! She spends more than half the year in California, and the summer months with me. (up until this year). She has an amazing life in Torrance, California and is treated like the queen she is. I thank god every day she found us. And yes, she did find us. Long story I would love to tell you! She was renamed Sophie and the name fits her to a tee.
She is not a boxer, but I thank god every day that New Life Boxer Rescue got the call about her and her sister. She is the most amazing thing! Everyone loves her and wishes they could have her. She is a gem.. she is my gem! She goes to work with Brian sometimes, but Scott has taken control of having her during the day. His work wants to make her their mascot. When she is not with him, they ask why and where is she.
She just went thru her first earthquake. 5.5 and my son Scott says she was shaking like a leaf. He was like "what's the matter lil pup?" then came the earthquake. Her first and momma missed it!
I visit often, and cry getting on the plane because of the separation with her. My sons are grown, I love them dearly, but I miss her terribly!
With our whole hearts and souls...we are so thankful!
She IS the pickiest eater in the world! You need to cut up her food and make sure it doesn't touch her nose. She is a picky eater!
There is no separation anxiety. She is comfortable when we leave knowing that we will be returning soon. Her chance to get in bed and catch some sleep.
She is protective, not a fan of most dogs. She is protective!
She loves chasing squirrels, rabbits and chipmunks.
What you should know about her is she has been naturally trained. She doesn't need a leash, she doesn't run away, she stays one step behind you when walking. When she gets to a crosswalk or corner, she waits until she gets the signal to cross. You can actually walk to the other side of the street, and she will sit there and wait for the ok to step into the street. When she runs after squirrels, if they run across the street, she runs parallel on our side of the street. Just amazing.
Best dog ever!
