Care to guess?

Yes, we love Sophie. But we're talking about another focus on love.

My sweet Sophie loves lots of things - her family, squirrels, food, squirrels. But she seems to have a special place in her heart for squeaky, squishy things.  Sophie would never harm anything squishy - unless it breathes and is shaped like a squirrel - or a lizard. In short, this girl adores her toys.

This Saturday's Focus on Life theme (over at Sally Russick's Studio Sublime blog) is a visual representation of love.  Head over and visit and...well...spread the love.

  6. LOL I can so understand. We have a rescue labradoodle, which I mistakenly gave a Reese's Pieces pillow to for Christmas last year, and still waiting for the squeaker in it to give out!

  7. Sophie is such a gorgeous dog... I feel like I know her sometimes. My pepper has a soft hedgehog toy ( amongst others) which she is good at using as a small pillow sometimes. Love Soph's collection.

  9. I do love your Sophie and I am a bit envious that she is gentle with her plushies. One of mine rips shreds them in 5 minutes. And the other (the lab) shakes them to pieces.

We always have a bet when we get her new toys how long it will take to get the squeaker out!!!! And the duck I see in her "toy box", we have one toooo...lol. Do we dote on our animals or what!!!

  15. Bella is our first pup that has an attachment to toys, if she does not figure out how to destroy it in the first 24 hours then it is a keeper.
    We have always had at least three dogs so when there were toys involved there would be a fight. They are just like people they want what ever someone else has.
    Bella is our first little dog so I think the rest of the pack let her have her toys because they really don't think she is a dog.

  24. What great photos. I love seeing Sophie and it's awesome to see her with her favorite toys.

    ReplyDelete
  25. hehe, adorable! I've never had a dog but my best friend did growing up. That dog loved tennis balls more than just about anything. She's gone now, but when I think of her it's almost always her shoving a slobbery ball towards me or her snout resting on my thigh, waiting.

  26. Sweet photos. I especially like the last one! I too adore my dog; life is filled with more love because of her. Her favorite toys are ropes-she loves to chew on them until they are shreds of fiber!
