Meet Lola’s Sister, Sophie 🐾

Happy Friday!  Meet Lola’s new sister, Sophie!

We brought her home a week ago~ she’s 12 weeks old today.

We’re a two-dog household again and Lola is thrilled to have a new toy to play with. ;)

Sophie is sweet, smart and teaching Lola a few new tricks! 🐾🐾

She’s 6.4 lbs. as of her vet appointment on Wednesday.

She’s a bundle of energy. . .

. . . who promptly passes out after playing so hard.

 Sophie came from the same loving AKC responsible Bichon Frise breeder where we found Lola. They’re almost exactly a year apart in age.

She’s learning to pose for treats, aka, puppy kibble. 🐾

The world’s best antidepressant has 4 legs, a wagging tail and comes with unconditional love. 🐾🐾

Thank you for your visit. ♥🐾

    Oh my goodness, Sophie is so FULL of personality already! I could be totally off base, but it seems like Lola was more shy when she first came home. Happy you have a two puppy household again. She’s adorable.

    • August 9, 2019 at 4:39 pm

      Hi Rita, thank you! Yes It could be just puppy exuberance right now but Lola is much more reserved. I think Sophie will bring her out of her shell ❤️🐾🐾

    Those eyes! That face! She is beautiful!! Once you’ve been a two pup family, it doesn’t seem right without the full contingent. Now your home is complete. Looking forward to lots of adorable pictures.

    We got an urgent call a few weeks ago about a 10 yo heartworm positive dachshund mix. He was living on very borrowed time at the shelter. We went over thinking to foster but as soon as that stinky little dog hopped in my lap, we were goners! He is a sweetheart, and we are madly in love!

Lola is actually still a puppy too so the fun has got to be non stop. Congratulations…..

Looking forward to the adventures of Lola and Sophie!!! Have a fabulous weekend Mary!

    Bless you for allowing her to stay with her mom for almost three months. Little ones, more than big ones, need that extra time to learn all they need to learn from Mom. Your breeder sounds like an excellent one to promote a long stay with Mom dog for new puppies. And the adorableness only grows! All the best to you and yours!

    Getting old is not so good when it comes with poor health. I enjoy your pictures and sharing
    Your life. Precious little dogs. I have bad depression
    and would love a dog but not up for the care
    They require. Have followed you forever. Ha!
    Guess y’all live on the lake as your permanent home
    It’s a dream come true.
    God Bless

    Bonne journée
