My New Roomie....Sort Of.



My friend's dad had a heart attack yesterday and went in for a quadruple bypass operation. I'm happy to say that the surgery went off without a flaw and tough old Greg is doing quite well. Sue flew out to Idaho as soon as she heard what had happened and asked me to take care of the dog for her. Sophie is a dimwitted but sweet 115 pound St. Bernard. Mind you, I lived with her for almost three years up in Marysville. Things were different then though, that was a HOUSE with a YARD. She is Waayyyy too much dog for my little one man pad I'm living in now. We got back to the house at around eleven last night and within two minutes, she had torn down three of the blinds from the sliding glass door, she's too big for her own good. Then she kept me up all night, at two in the morning I woke up to the unmistakable sound of a dog vomiting. I was too tired and figure I'd just clean it up in the morning. Funny though, when she woke me up at four A.M. to go for a walk, there was no sign of the Sophie surprise anywhere......I'll probably find it in one of my shoes or something. I took her to go pee and then hopped back into bed. She continued to do obnoxious things like breathing on my face, jumping on the bed and belching, yes, this dog belches, LOUDLY. She'll only be here for a couple days though, and she IS a total sweetie, she thinks she's a lap dog.
OH! Also, it's SNOWING out here today!!!! I'm so excited, I haven't seen snow in a loooong time. I usually migrate south in the winters.

She is a very sweet dog. You just have to get used to being covered in drool, oh god the drool!

Hahaha, oh, wow, I remember that dog! I have never seen so much drool in my life. Total sweetie, but soooo funny. I can't imagine having a dog that big in a confined space.

I noticed that she's licking her chops in the one picture and it just made me think that I know where the Sophie surprise went ... yummmmmmm!

Dan just came to pick her up, I joked with him that Sophie is nationally famous for her drooling, she thanks you all for the love....
