Sonia Wise Eyes, Sonia adjusting to her new home, February 11, 2008, all photos © 2008 by ybonesy. All rights reserved.

  1. Her full name is Sonia.
  2. She came to us via a friend who loved her but couldn’t keep her; the friend’s father was dying.
  3. Sony is 10 months old.
  4. She doesn’t come when you call her. She forces you to run after her, and then it becomes a game of Catch Sony.
  5. She snorts and snores. I never thought snorting and snoring could be cute, but it is when she does it!
  6. She has transformed us into small dog folk. We never thought we’d own a small dog. We’ve always had big dogs.
  7. She’s a lap dog. She was bred to be a lap dog.
  8. She’s well-mannered. Sleeps in her bed and doesn’t get up until we get up.
  9. Hardy for a small dog. She once hiked eight miles.
  10. She’s hilarious. Loves to make us laugh.
