The Amazing Flying Dog!

Well, she sure leaps high enough to qualify for flying in my book! This is Lady Sonora, or Soni for short. She was my dear hubby's attempt to remedy my empty lap syndrome a few years ago. She is a sweet rat terrier and alot of fun, but she didn't really do the job that hubby was thinking she would do - since we have since added two daughters to our family since Soni joined us!
She really does jump high, though. When we lived in CA, we had a 1/2 window door - you know, the kind that is window on top and wood on the bottom? You could be sitting at the dining table and a motion would catch your eye from the window. It was Soni, letting us know she was ready to come back in the house. Jump, jump, jump - it was so funny - it looked like she was trying to peek in the window! I can hold a treat in my hand slightly above my shoulder height and she can jump up to get it!
We were outside the other day, yes - it really was sunny - doing bubbles. The girls had alot of fun watching Soni chase and jump for the bubbles!
Of course the girlies had to hitch a ride in the wheelbarrow while I was trying to get some work done, too!
I forgot to post our St. Patrick's Day snakes that the girls made! Dyed candy melts decorated with fruit loops and mini-chocolate chips for eyes.
Zabi thought they tasted pretty delicious! Skip this part if you get grossed out - they had a 2nd showing of green in the porcelain bowl the next day, to their giggly delight!

And here is proof of what looks in our dining room window!

I just love the view out your dining room window! Your girls are lovely and how neat to do something special for St. Patrick's Day.

Thanks for stopping by!

I LOVE the pictures with the girls together. The seem like they were never apart or didn't know each other before.
