Miss Sophie

Sophie is a Labrador- Pit bull mix, at least we think…

At this stage she loves all things chewable and has an enviable abundance of energy. Right now she’s composing music with her new squeaky toy in between random episodes of sprints around the apartment.

Sophie at play

Psychologists, veterinarians, and researchers, agree that pets can be good for our mental and physical health. Dogs provide: 1) unconditional love, 2) help prevent loneliness, 3) force us to get exercise, 4) are excellent listeners, and 5) are generally good at bringing smiles to our faces.

Finally tuckered out

If you’re thinking about getting a pet, the America Kennel Club advises considering whether you can provide the following things first:

  1. Food
  2. Water
  3. Shelter
  4. Exercise
  5. Training
  6. Health Care
  7. Grooming
  8. Play
  9. Companionship
  10. Devotion
  11. Forgiveness
