MEET MISS BOSSY PANTS....AKA.....SOPHIE.......
We have one of these......yep.......a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
Here she is.....doing what she does best.....hogging the sofa and the pillows. She will soon be nine, and it seems as though she is becoming so much more demanding as she gets older. (Kind of like me.....I guess). Anyway....she is a love and is such a gentle creature, one would hardly believe how she has changed over the years.
Each year seems to bring out yet more personality.....she now barks when she wants company on the sofa or the bed....she has to have a lick of my lip balm before we go to bed and she refuses to drink water from her bowl. She prefers a glass....with ice!
Our vet recommends we feed her a raw diet mixed in with vegetables and potato or rice. Well.....she now has decided she doesn't like potato....so if I add a little to her food.....she picks out each piece and sits it down on the floor....beside her food dish. My friend tells me ........ she WANTS GRAVY.....silly woman. Brother....if I start that she will want the biscuits as well.
We are so grateful for every day we have had her.....and are always amazed at all the lessons we learn from her.
I believe I read a quote somewhere that went something like this "Every house should have a dog.....and every dog should have a home." I couldn't agree more.
