Sophie was a beautiful, sweet, smart English Springer Spaniel. She did everything with enthusiasm! She especially loved her toys, bones, dinner time and walks. We never ceased to be amazed about how she could “tell time.” We typically fed her at about 5 pm. If we did not appear to be preparing her dinner at 5 pm, she would go crazy barking at us to let us know it was time. When we set the week day alarm for 6:00 am, she would paw the edge of the bed to wake us up at 5:55 am. She, however, did not see Saturday and Sunday as any different, so our “Sophie” alarm would wake us on weekends at 5:55, too. Sophie left us for doggie heaven on November 19, 2019. She was 14 years old. Though we are heartbroken, we are pretty sure Sophie is running around enthusiastically waking everyone at 5:55 and barking for dinner at 5pm. We miss you beautiful girl.
