Wow. I can’t believe it’s been one year already! But yes, one year ago today, we brought this little bundle of love home with us from Lucky Dog Animal Rescue.
And let’s face it, we’ve had our share of hurdles with the little princess, but any way you shape it, this little girl has changed our lives for the better. She may not be the most dog-friendly, and she still may have accidents (or puke on the carpet right after we had it cleaned) but she’s one of the best cuddlers a guy could ask for, and helps make the apartment feel warmer.
To celebrate her one-year since being born again, I decided she needed a special treat. Instead of having a full-blown party like I actually debated, I just went for a cake for the little girl.
As much as I wanted to let her eat the whole thing… I knew it was in the best interest of my floors that it be divided up over a few days.
Sophia’s First Glance
Sophia doesn’t like cold weather. She shivers when she walks outside and it is not warm and sunny. So the solution? She needed a coat.
This past weekend we got her a red cable-knit turtle neck for her warming enjoyment. the verdict? It keeps her warm and she enjoys it. I see more clothing in her future….
Just a few pics from pride in DC this past weekend. It was a great time most definitely. But Sophia definitely was a tad unhappy that she was left alone more than usual. It’s ok, she got her revenge on pride…

So, in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle for our Princess Sophia, we have developed some rules for her. I have established that I am a bit ridiculous.
Princess Sophia’s Etiquette Course
Princess Sophia all too frequently channels her royal lineage and likes to think that she can get whatever she believes will satiate her at whatever time is convenient to her. Sadly for her, this type of behavior is unacceptable and thus, she is on a rigorous etiquette training program. In order to present her royal highness with the most luxurious and comfortable surroundings, it is key that some vital points are followed both by her servants and her royal highness.
Welcome to Washington, DC, Sophia!
After a long van ride from a shelter in South Carolina, this pretty little french bulldog is now ours!
She needs some fattening up, and a little bit of training refreshers, but otherwise she is getting along great. She’s friendly with both people and dogs and quite the inquisitive type.
She is 4 years old, and seems to have had a rough life. She still feels the need to hide her treats when she gets them so that other dogs don’t get them, but I am certain she will get all the pampering and love that she needs to thrive here.
