My Mutt Stories: Sophia

Featured My Mutt... "Sophia"

Sophia

As a senior without any family the days and nights have been lonely. I've had cats before and for the past 8 1/2 years had a white rabbit named Whymper who died in June 2016. When I moved to Pacifica 4 years ago I became socially active with dogs especially two dogs Zydene and White Paws and their owner Wolffe, sometimes caring for them in my apartment. Seeing the love and affection they gave me, I decided when Whymper died it was time for me to consider having my own dog. When I went to the Peninsula Humane Society / SPCA in San Mateo to look at dogs I saw Sophia (then named Coco - although she left as Sophia) and it was love at sight for the both of us. She goes everywhere with me, sleeps with me. I walk her every day and take her to Dog Park every day it is open so she can interact with other dogs and get exercise. We spend a lot of the day with Zydene and White Paws and Wolffe, so it is like having a family for all of us. My doctor likes it because I am getting exercise and taking better care of my health. I know I can give her the love, attention, and proper care she needs and deserves. I am much happier having her in my life filing a void that I have had for many years since all of my family died.
She is truly God's gift to me. She is truly the love of my life.
