Doggy Appreciation Night!

 Jim, Ron and I were invited to Ron's cousin Anita's house
on Tuesday. I tried to be on my best behaviour because my over exuberance
can stress some people and I certainly don't mean to uspet anyone.
Ally and Anita couldn't keep their hands off me....SMILES!

Trivial Pursuit(Canadian Edition) was a blast as usual... see the cherub(symbolically that's me)...
just look at those eyes and I definitely am a sweetheart
Roll again...kinda/sorta...that's me making friends as usual...rolling from one hand to another.

 I truly think I'm in love with Carolyn, Anita's youngest. 
Her glasses match my fur so we are definitely
kindred spirits. 

Carolyn flew home last week from Southampton, U.K.
She's a smarty pants taking her PhD for the next three years.
I have to get all my lovin's in because I might not see her again until next Xmas.

 Anita told me that she looking for a new doggy.
How exciting is that!
The chances of a new friend is just too much for me.
I could teach my new cousin some cool begging!

 I'm in a bit of a blurr with Ally petting me and Anita stroking my back.
I think I'm amongst dog people!

 Crokinole was the second game on the agenda.
As you can see Anita can't let me go.

 Jim's turn to flick the piece off the board and score a big one.

 This the first time playing this game for Jim and me.
Ron played it as a child.

The rules for this game are located a few pics back
just click on the Crokinole link.

Do you think I was successful in renewing my appreciation for Carolyn?
She's pretty cool, you know....
what human would lay down on the floor
and rub my chest?!


  1. Oh to be so loved... and so content.

    I've never heard of Crokinole. Am now going to read about it. Thanks!

  2. I think you have found a great friend in Carolyn! You know she probably flew home just to spoil you. Crokinole, we LOVE that game. We have my husbands board from when he was a kid!

  3. Hey Sophie!
    Wow, I'd say you've got those peeps right where you want them! Good training on your part. Who could resist you anyway? A peep on the floor with us is always a great thing!
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  4. Looks as if you have a captive audience ready to spoil you completely. : )

  5. A dog can never get too much lovin'! Lovely pics.

  6. Well, you charmed them, Sophie!! We love that last picture!

  7. We originally came from Southampton! (I was brought up in the New Forest which is just west of Soton) and go back from time to time...small world aye:)

  8. They are dog people for sure....or at least they are Sophie people.

    Interesting game.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Bella & Roxy

  9. I think they just made up the whole game night thing to have an excuse to adore you, Sophie! We had game day at Grandma's house this week, and it was awesome until the cat attacked me!


  10. Hi Y'all,

    Wow! Your cousin looks really neat! How special! Layin' on the floor and rubbing your chest! Wow!

    Y'all come back now,
    Hawk aka BrownDog

  11. Sophie, looks like you were spoilt rotten!!

    take care
    Clive and Murray

  12. Miss Sophie, you sure do have some admirers! And I'm not surprised because you are gorgeous smorgeous ♥

  13. I think Carolyn is going to miss you some!! Winter and games just go together like hot chocolate and marshmallows in winter.

  14. Looks like you did just fine Ms Sophie
    Benny & Lily

  15. It looks like you were in your element, Sophie!

  16. Sophie, just look at you getting all that loving! Good girl!

  17. I love Trivial Pursuit because my mind is full of those crazy little facts that I just love. Your evening was certainly spent among dog people who know what a real treasure you are Sophie!!

    ¸.•´¸.•*´¨) ¸.•*¨)
    (¸.•´ (¸.•` ¤ HAPPY NEW YEAR SOPHIE AND RON!!*´¨)

  18. Ah, Carolyn is showing her submissiveness! Awesome humans you have there!

    And speaking of being a cherub, I think doggies are way more awesome. Cherubs don't have fluffy bodies like you do.

    Happy New Year,

    Huggies and Cheese,


  19. What a fun evening! Warm wishes to you all for 2012.

    H and Flo
