About that dog
Track down a few pictures and some short tales about a willful, exuberant dog whose sweet spirit was indomitable.
Sophie was a Basset-Beagle, a sought-after mélange of dog here in the Carolina Piedmont. To folks who are hip to hounds, I like to say she inherited the best of both breeds. She ate most anything, liked most everyone and would let you do anything to her if you talked sweet. She was an extraordinary example of hybrid vigor and at age 18, still took great pleasure in sunning herself on the front porch after breakfast.
Sophie was that dog and I loved her something fierce.
I’ve called in a couple more well-loved dog friends. Check back to see if I can get them to pay any attention.
