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.

Hugs,

Jo

  1. Sophie is such a beauty. I can't imagine life without our girls. They make our days so much better even when all they do is lay around and make demands. Our Scooter can't have beef or chicken so venison is served at our house. With duck for treats.

    Sophie is adorable! I am sure next she will require the good silver and linen at every meal.

  5. I read a quote once that loosely translated said..you don't own a dog..they own you! I think Sophie is a beautiful dog, and I see her her soul within her eyes! I am a cat person more-so, but Sophie is bringing me to the other side with her sweet face!Have a blessed day Jo, always lovely to see your posts! xoxo Christel

  6. Hi Emily....No Sophie has not had a real problem with ear infections. She actually does not like to go in water. Her linage is a hunting dog. We call her " hunter girl" as she likes to stalk bunnies and birds when we take her out.

  7. Martina....I have read the book "My Friend George". I loved every minute of it.....and it does describe a Cavalier to a "tee". LOL LOL

  8. Hello from Frog Hollow Farm. Oh, I love your little Sophie. We've been without a dog for a few years now, and I really miss having one in our home. I grew up with collies, but now am allergic to dog and cat dander, so we've had a standard poodle named Bear and a little rescue poodle named Brinkley. Give Miss Sophie a hug from me, and oh, by the way, what's her favorite lip balm flavor??LOL - Ciao, bella! xxoo

  9. Sophie is very sweet looking. Today I have my son-in-law's border collie following me around. He's sweet but can be a handful when he thinks anyone is leaving without him!!!

  10. Our Lola (simply a shih tzu) loves drinking water out of a glass with ice. And she licks my lip balm too. What are the chances? I don't trust anyone who doesn't like animals (especially dogs). Live long and prosper, sweet Sophie. I love your name, by the way. You go, girl. You ARE the boss!

  13. Your Sophie is a little beauty, Jo! I'd give her anything she wants when she looked at me with that sweet face!

  14. What a precious little sweetheart and how could you not cave in to her demands?
    Although I have numerous rescue cats I have always been a "dog" person. I hope someday to have the room to have a few canine friends again.
    Have a lovely day and hugs to Sophie!

  18. Sophie is such a cutie! Our fur-kids tend to rule the roost a bit here....my Cody loves nothing better than to hog my pillow at night. :)

  19. Sophie is so beautiful! I do agree though, gravy could lead to biscuits and who knows what else. ;-) My King is also 9 years old. Where does the time go?

    LOL on the glass of water with ice. What a princess. She is just a four legged love, Jo. Have a wonderful week. Hugs, Mina

  23. I love my old dog Sadie. She will be 13 next month, getting up there for a dog her size. She is deaf as a post and sleeps a lot. She is my best buddy and I am going to be soooooo sad when her time comes.
