Our beautiful, happy Sophie passed away suddenly today. She was 9, lively and active, and we thought we’d have at least a few more years with her. We lost Lulu about a month and a half ago, and now Sophie is gone too.

Sophie always loved toys, especially toys that squeaked or made noises. She brought me her toys every day, wanting me to play tug with her and then to throw the toy to her–she was great at catching. She usually had a toy with her when she took a nap.


She was such a happy girl. Just looking at her could make me smile.


The house seems very quiet and empty tonight.
