First of all we want to thank you Laura, for what you are doing for unfortunate animals and for people like ourselves. Know that, for us, you’ve brought together a great spirit and a family that needed each other. After just a couple of days, we’ve all become attached to each other.
My wife and I adopted Sophie in January, 2012. We couldn’t take her home immediately due to our new home being renovated, but we would walk her every weekend where she was boarded so she would get used to us. As long as we had her beloved cheese, she was happy as a clam! The day we brought her home was so funny; she walked into the house and ran directly into her bed! It is if she knew the house was already hers. We even had the added the bonus of Sophie’s colors matching the room! Today, Sophie is still vibrant and lively as ever (though a little bit heavier). She has proven to be quite the security guard with her constant roving of the house checking on things. She loves basking in the light through the sliding glass door and running outside in our large back yard; however, she puts up quite the fuss when dealing with the cold. She will whine almost immediately and if there is a space heater in operation, she will take complete control of it. In addition, if the weather permits, she loves to go in my work truck when I go to plumbing calls. Sophie has become an integral part of this family. My wife and I can’t imagine not having her with us. Thank you Protectors of Animals for giving us another member of the family.
