Brown Eyed Girl



She's always there...her sweet little head resting on my foot. 
 She's claimed it as her resting spot while she waits for me to finish whatever it is I'm doing. 
 Her warmth comforts me and follows me wherever I go.

She's my baby girl...although she's furry and loud and she's got a really sassy mouth on her.

Sophia Lucia Ricardo...my little Sophie. 
 And for all of you I Love Lucy fans, you'll recognize the significance of her name.  
She is one crazy girl.



But for all her wild ways, she is the smartest and most gentle Corgi we've had. 
 Her little brown eyes light up every morning when I get up and those little white boot feet start to dance.

Even though she's pretend Italian, she has a good grasp of the English language.  
She always understands what I tell her and likewise, I know what the little fart is telling me.  
Usually, it's give me a treat or I want to get into the bed with you. 
 I'm her person.  
We share our morning yogurt.  
She chews her bone while I have coffee and starts yelling like crazy if I'm too long on the iPad.  
This girl needs to go run!





Sophie Stinkerbelle also likes to dig things up, chase frogs and birds and run like a racehorse.





She likes a nice comfy bed when Daddy is traveling. 
 Shhh, don't tell. 
 He pretends to get annoyed, but he knows about Me and Baby Girl. 






She'd rather dig a hole in the backyard than dress up.  
She's no girly girl. 
 Mud is always preferable over a pink tulle tutu.

My constant companion and biggest fan.
                                                   
My little dog...a heartbeat at my feet.  




She's my brown eyed girl.

Ooooooooo...Brown Eyed Girl...Love that song! Sophie is a real sweetheart. Thank you so much for the introduction. Snuggles from her "Aunt Donna" and cousin, Kes in Florida.

Happy Holiday Weekend.

what a sweet dog. I just got a cat and am beginning to understand the love one has for their pets, it is very strong.

What an absolutely beautiful pup! Aren't they the best? They keep us company, cheer us up when we're down and love us beyond condition!

Miss Soso! I welcome her barks in the backyard and running back and forth along the fence! Or, maybe that's Henry. Dogs are our best companions by far and they love us unconditionally; no matter what! Thank you for sharing her with us.

Brown Eyed Girl was my daughter's favorite song when she was in high school.

Your dog is adorable!

Miss Sophia Lucia Ricardo is a real doll baby!!! I'm sure she brings you great joy - even when she's digging things up. ;)

Thanks for becoming my BFF. I'm now following you on BlogFrog AND here.

Blessings,

Your brown eyed girl is beautiful! I would love to give her a hug and some tummy rubs. :)

That was a favorite song for my first love to sing to me. :)

Hope you have a great day!

I found that I wanted to know more about Sophie...aww..my heart is full just seeing her little face in all of these pictures! She reminds me of how I feel about my Daisy and my Curtis.

I also LOVE the pic of her all cozied up in bed for the night. The cuteness of that one almost HURTS!

Love, Love, Love this!

Best: you referred to yourself as "her person"..that's exactly how I feel! Whenever friends who don't have animals find the stuff I do for our dogs weird, I just have to shrug and say "You'll never understand the love you feel for them. They are my babies!"

Heartwarming. Love. :-)
