We are so lucky to have such amazing patients, and we love getting to know their personalities and stories. We thought many of our fellow pet-lovers would also enjoy learning more about these fabulous "furbabies," so we're starting a new feature, Furbaby Friday! Stay tuned for more pet features!
Our first feature is Sophie! We asked her mom to answer a few questions about this awesome pup!
Your Name: Kimberly Kettler
Pet's name: Sophie (Her Royal Highness Sophie-Anne Vampire Queen of Louisiana)
Breed: Rough collie
The thing that makes me smile most about my pet is:
Everything about Sophie makes me smile…from her sweet furry face to her beautiful wagging tail and everything in between. Beauty and brains too…she’s not just another pretty face.
My pet's most endearing bad habit is:
She has no bad habits! She’s Mary Poppins…practically perfect in every way!
If my pet had a career it would be:
Sophie would be a superhero, of course (everyone knows that Lassie always saved the day!) She would follow Edna’s “no cape” rule and have a fancy Batgirl mask that magically adds dark makeup around her eyes when she puts it on.
Our favorite thing to do together:
Sophie is very affectionate and a real snuggle-bug…she’s very attached to her human and her human is very attached to her! She is happiest when she has my full attention…one-handed tummy rubs while I’m reading is not to be tolerated…and in return, I am rewarded with nibbles, kisses and forehead presses.
My pet's favorite place to hang out is:
She loves spending time with her Grandma and Grandpa (they don’t spoil her at all!) but when she’s at home, she can usually be found on my bed with her butt firmly planted in MY pillows.
What else can you tell us about Sophie?:
Sophie is very sweet, gentle, loving and loyal. She is truly amazing and I am extremely fortunate to have her in my life.
