Puppy 8, Sophie
Pink Girl has gone home to Katy in Scottsdale, Arizona !
Hello! Sorry it took me so long to send Sophie's first birthday update. We
have been very busy planning a possible move to Texas...... I know, Sophie will be quite the travel girl haha. She is doing just great! Her favorite thing to do is go hiking, as soon as the hiking shoes come out of the closet she gets so excited! She also loves swimming, every time we get home from a hike she darts straight to the pool for a swim! We love her so much! Thanks again for the perfect puppy!

Sophie seems to be very happy here in Arizona. She and Rudy (our pit bull) have become the best of friends. They play, sleep and eat together! He acts like she is his baby he has to take care of. The funny thing is that Sophie is the total dominator.  She chases him around all day long.  I have to say it's hilarious to see a little labradoodle chasing a pit bull around!  She is such an amazing dog with so much personality, we honestly couldn't love her more!  Thanks again for our little Sophie!


I had a great time visiting and meeting you all.  I just wanted to let you know Sophie did wonderfully on the plane ride home! She slept on the first flight and only cried a little on the second. She was such a good girl! I was very proud of her. Thanks again!  ~Katy
