Opi and Nellie Belle Have a Visitor
Last weekend, mil and her baby Sofia came over for a visit. As you can see from the picture, Sofia was smart and dressed for the weather. Opi is a gracious host, he shares his treats and is very polite to company. Nellie on the other hand is a well, a not so nice word to poor Sofia. Nellie is very territorial and growled and barked at Sofia but after a few minutes ignored her unless my husband or I gave attention to Sofia. Sofia has an interesting story. Not too long after my mil's dear little Westie, Eva, went to doggie heaven, a neighbor saw Sofia being mistreated by her previous owners. The previous owner voluntary gave Sofia (then known as FiFi) to the neighbor. Sofia was a nervous wreck and would nip at you if you tried to get close to her. She started settling down but it still took her a long time to get used to men. Now, Sofia is the sweetest little girl. She is supposed to be a Chihuahua but is several inches taller than my kids. She has become the most affectionate little girl and my mil deserves a lot of credit for turning this young lady around.
