Two years ago we brought our first Bernese Mountain Dog home. We had driven all the way to Dallas TX, where a super shy Berner girl was being fostered by a member of the BARC rescue group. (For details see the March 2009 posts.) We brought her home and named her Sophia.
After two years as a member of our family, Sophia has learned a lot. She has become an excellent office dog who loves to lie under my desk while I do my work.
She loves the out-doors, especially when there is some stinky spot to be found with the possibility to roll in it.
She has literally become my shadow and follows at my heels everywhere I go. And most of all, she comes running whenever there is a chance to collect some petting.
My sweet Sophia, you have made great strides in adjusting to a normal life. Our family would be incomplete without you.
