I am Sophie and I've been tagged by Smokey at The Fraker Farm

First of all, an update on Salem. The vet called this morning and they are keeping him one more day to make sure he keeps doing well. If so, I will be able to bring him home tomorrow. I miss him so much! Thank you for all of your prayers.
So here goes..... I am Sophie
I'm city born, but country raised,
where blessings are counted,
and God is Praised.
I take long walks to where the meadow ends,
and I share this life

With many friends.
I play ball,

and catch the frisbee too,

I love smelling flowers,

and some....... I chew.

Kathleen says I'm "top dog"and her best friend,
We sit out together and watch the day end.
And as night closes around us, the coyotes sing,
We await the new blessings,
the next morning will bring.
love ya Smokey! licks and smacks, Sophie

What a wonderful and touching post. You and Sophie are very poetic, which of you is the muse ? By the way, how is Salem?

Awww... what a sweetheart!!!
I love seeing her "close-up"... her eyes are like Smokey's- so expressive. And she's a poet, too?
Thanks, Sophie- I loved hearing about you!!
(Thank you too, Kathleen!!)
Glad Salem is doing better!! ((HUGS))

You're just too precious!

"City born, but country raised, Where blessings are counted and God is praised..." I love that!!!

I'm glad to hear Salem is better. I hope he'll be home soon.

I love the rhyming! Sophie has a good life, huh? The cat in that picture looks a little ticked off...lol!

So happy to hear that Salem may be coming home soon. I know you must be missing him a lot. :)

This was a fun post. I enjoyed meeting and getting to "listen" to Sophie. What a wonderful companion! :D

Oh I love the bunny. I had two growing up. I used to love getting strange looks from people when my sister and I would take them out for walks...or should I say "hops"? :)

Glad to hear that Salem is doing better. Did they ever find out what was wrong?

Life would sure be boring without our pets, wouldn't it?

This is the sweetest post! Loved it! Sophie sounds like such an adorable companion to have around. She sure does have the good life and I'm glad to see she likes to share it with others.
