Yesterday we visited our vet in Dickeyville.
Lilly needed her shots and Sophia went along for the ride. Dr. Sander put Sophia on the scale and our suspicion was confirmed: Sophia has gained exactly four pounds since she came to live with us. Now she is a strapping 59.2 pounds! She is a little small for her breed because Berner girls usually weigh about 90 pounds and the boys easily reach 12o lbs.
Sophia’s smaller size comes in handy when she rough-houses with Lilly who is a little spitfire of 25 ponds.
Here are some recent photos of our lovely girls:
As you can see, Sophia’s tail is up. She is on her way to become a well adjusted pooch. She loves the outdoors and looks hilarious when she plays hide-and-seek in the bushes.
Let’s not forget about Stan. It is confirmed that he has lost his hearing. He is becoming alergic to his favorite foods and can no longer eat milk or fish. Other than that he seems content, especially when he sleeps snuggled up to his Mom.
We are a happy family indeed and all is well in Sontheim!
