Trooper, another New Friend!

We decided to take a break from the hospital routine,
since the sun was shining.

So we trekked over to Point Pleasant Park to walk and seek out new friends.

We discovered Trooper on the path that had mayflowers the other day.

Trooper is a Greyhound/?mix. 
We were told he was afraid of men,
since he was a rescue dog mistreated by gruff men.
Ron is so good with canines and Trooper started coming around.

So, I figured it was OK to share Ron again.
A lot of that seems to go on at the Park!

After a vigorous and playful run through the thickets,
 teasing Trooper with Mr. Orangie,
I sat down for a breather before  heading off to find a good swamp pool
to cool off in....
smiles all around
from me at least!


  1. You dogs seem to have a gnack for making friends so easily. We humans forget how as we grow older. I can't remember the last time I went up to someone and asked them if they wanted to play. Or sniffed their butt for that matter.

  2. Trooper is one handsome guy Sophie! Really good he's warming up to Ron :) Glad you found a new furiend!

    Waggin at ya,

  3. I don't see how any dog could be afraid of Ron!! I'm glad you met a new friend.

  4. I bet that was just the break your daddies needed! Good girl, Sophie.

  5. A nice swamp pool? Bet you smell good now, Sophie!

  6. I smelled like the inside of a manure pile...mmm...mmmm...good!!!

  7. Hi Y'all,

    Sophie, you may have really helped Trooper by teaching him that all men aren't mean.

    I think you are gorgeous by the way!

    Y'all come by now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  8. That's so good of Ron to help Trooper get over his have to share him sometime. But we noticed you didn't share Mr Orange...BOL!

  12. I'm glad you had so much fun! Trooper looks like he might be a Greyhound or Whippet crossed with a Beagle. Ron sounds like my dad. Mom calls him the Pied Piper of Dogs, and they all follow him around!

He also takes bathes almost daily and I think there's the connection! Smellier the better and I can just imagine your exuberance!! I'm counting the days for summer around here...its been a long long winter!!
