eleven years

It's this gal's 11th birthday today. Can't believe it's been 11 years since our first meeting. Sophie came into our lives at the ripe old age of 4 months, and she took charge. She's still in charge....

The pictures above were taken at mine and Kim's Athens apartment in college. We had a small grassy area in the back. I like to call it the Jamestown Jungle. Anyway, there is the bday girl above with her older sister Lane. Lane would have been about one there.

The photo below was taken at Sophie's first horse show at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. Those days, we spent lots of time on the road travelling to events.
I can't believe how dark their little racoon faces were back then.
Sweet sisters.

Now, Sophie plays the role of older sister to Savannah. She likes that, like I said, she's in charge.

Last night we had a little shindig at the Jones cottage. When we get older, we get tired sometimes. Sophie had all she could take. She sacked out early in the guest room.
{Notice her white face compared to her younger face?}

Looking forward to many more good years. Whippets typically have nice long lives, so we aren't worried about this girl going anywhere anytime soon!
