Kathy & Sophie

Who is in the photo at right?

It's me, Kathy aka Frau, and my Sophie.

Sophie is a five-year-old Wire Fox Terrier. We have recently returned to USA after living abroad in Germany for two years.

In Germany Sophie was a rock star, everywhere we went she drew attention -- they love their dogs and especially their Terriers!

What's the occasion for Coffee with a Canine?

Sophie is an early raiser so by mid day I need a pick me up!

What's brewing?

Grande Chai Latte Skinny.

Any treats for you or Sophie on this occasion?

Bow wow whip introduced to us by a good friend Joyce. Sophie's favorite little cup of whip cream.

How were you and Sophie united?

Sophie was my daughter's 12th birthday present.

Now at 17 my daughter realizes Sophie is really mine.

How did she get her name? Any aliases?

Katelyn named her, Sophie just fit her.

She is mostly called Sophie, sometimes SD short for Sophie the Dog, and while in Germany our neighbor called her Tophie so we sometimes called her that to joke.

Does Sophie have a favorite place to go for walk?

Sophie is not much of a walker, she is more of a car girl.

She loves to go bye bye and stick her head out the window; it is her idea of heaven.

Squirrel, postman, cat...?

Birds, rabbits, squirrels ... and an occasional leaf.

Squeaky-toy, tennis ball, stick?

Sophie's favorite toy is a stuff-less bunny or raccoon -- we call it her baby. If you tell her to get her baby she comes back with one of the two, shaking it.

What is Sophie's best quality?

Sophie best quality is her personality: she loves people.

She just wants to say hi with a quick jump up and a kiss.

She is like to sit on laps and soak up lots of hugs and petting.

If Sophie could change one thing about you, what would it be?

I think Sophie would love if I never left her home alone.

She has separation anxiety and wants to go everywhere with me.

If Hollywood made a movie in which Sophie could talk, who should do her voice?

If Sophie could talk she would probably sound like Estelle Getty from The Golden Girls. Sophie is a five year old with a 80 year old's body!
