Yes, Sophie the Victorian (aka Old English) bulldog pup is in reality a mythical monster. At least part of the time...the rest of the time she's the sweetest, cutest, and most amazing little puppy we could wish for.
When she's the Kracken the house is pure madness...multiple dogs growling/barking/running around (most of the running is Sophie, sometimes being chased by PG trying to boss her around). She gets into the play mode and there's just no letting up, right up until she drops for a nap. It's almost like a light-switch. One moment it's Kracken...then "click"...it's Sophie. We relish the Sophie times, and survive the Kracken times. But she's growing pretty quick (she weighed 23lbs when we brought her home just before Christmas, and she's right at 30 now just a month later...holding to about 3 pounds every 2 weeks. Her birthday is August 31st...so she's coming up on 5 months old. She's definitely bigger when we compare to her older sisters. It's going to be quite interesting as she gets closer to full size (and the bark/growl)...what will the pack dynamic be then? Will she challenge PG for leadership? We hope not...we're afraid she'd have to kill PG to take that away...she's quite spoiled (PG).
But anyway...here's a couple MORE Sophie pictures (I can year you all groaning, knowing you're in for years of Sophie pics on a regular basis).
she can inject mayhem and madness into our lives.
