July 2016 - Pet of the Month... Sophie!
July 1, 2016
Sophie was born on November 1, 2008. Her mother and I accepted Sophie into our lives in January of 2009. Her mother decided to return to her homeland in England. We looked into having Sophie becoming a Brit, but we were informed that the six month quarantine and flight would not be in Sophie’s best interest. So it’s been Sophie and me since April, 2011.
Sophie enjoys racing the skateboarders at the park. She may have injured her ACL doing just that. She had her first surgery in November 2011 on her left ACL elsewhere and recovered nicely. However, she injured her right ACL last fall and Dr. Gary Thompson and the rest of the wonderful staff at West Suburban fixed her up again. I am overwhelmed by the professional caring people at your hospital. We did not get the follow up treatment, the friendliness, or the individual care the first time around and it cost almost twice as much as West Suburban.
Sophie is back to posting pictures of herself on Facebook in a series called “Where’s Sophie?” We started the series four years ago and now she has a small following of people who look for her hiding in her daily pictures. An example of a “WS?” photo is in the collage tagged "Where's Sophie?". She loves running in the woods and is back to racing skateboarders. Because I am retired, we spend a lot of time together walking through all of the wonderful parks in our city and surrounding areas. We have traveled to Detroit’s Belle Isle a few times and soon we may travel the Michigan coasts. She is a great companion.
