Sophie Loves Woman

This is another post about my week in Mobile ...

Along with their cat Vasha, the Rubles have a yellow Lab named Sophie. Sophie is about the same age as me, and she is a big boned mama. Sophie LOVES Woman and is very resentful towards me because I am Woman's dog. Sometimes Sophie loves Woman a little too much and knocks her down on the ground! Despite the never ending competition between Sophie and me to be number one in Woman's eyes, we get along pretty well.

We did some napping together.

And kept guard over the house together.

But mostly she just licked on her foot. She has bad skin allergies.

She tried to give me some snogging, but I wasn't having it.

I have no interest in the snog. Unless, of course, it's with Woman.


Woman really likes the Ruble's hardwood floors. She says they match my coloring really well.


And here is a picture of me slobbering. Charming, eh?

When I wasn't playing with Elena, running from Vasha or napping with Sophie, I just laid around and moped, pining for Woman to come back to me.

I had a good time on my "vacation," but I hope we don't do it again for a really long time. Woman informed me recently that she and Ian will be going on their own vacation the week after next and that Sarah will be pugsitting me. I was confused, because Sarah is only two years old, and she tends to hit me with sticks. Woman explained to me that our other friend Sarah, Big Girl Sarah, will be pugsitting for me, not Baby Sarah. I was pretty relieved, but I'm also ticked that the People will be leaving me. Woe is me...

    Does the other Sarah know you refer to her as Big Girl Sarah? I think I wouldnt call her that in person.. She might hit you with sticks like baby Sarah.

    Don't worry, Norman. Vacation is the chance to look really pitiful and get lots of extra treats from the sitters!

    Don't worry about the competition Norman; you are way cooler and cuter than Sophie.

    What is it with parents and vacations? I think we pugs should go away on our own vacations and leave our humans behind!

    Norman I think you could have saved some energy and ridden on Sophie's back!

    Wow! My Mom wants hardwood floors too...but I think that hardwood floors are just a clever way of keeping pugs from being able to get much traction when walking.
    Hope that your people have fun on vacation...are they going to Disney?

    Norman, how could they ever leave you? I just don't get it. You could come up here and hang out with Lucky and me, that would be fun.

    And love the drool shot. *grin*
