I had met a lady on a Forum who was asking about living in Mexico, so I told her what I knew and invited her and her husband and five month old DoberPup Rubi to stop in on their way South to La Paz for their six month holiday.
What a darling pup... What a BUSY pup.. Rubi was litteraly bouncing off the walls, racing from room to room in a black and rust blurr, sniffing everything imaginable and ferreted out the stuffies I had ( or THOUGHT I had) hidden.
"Squeeeeek Sqweeeekk""
Poor Sofia was a little undone at all the action, and sat in the middle of the living room cutting her eyes to Rubi, to me, back to the pup, at her Mom, back to me asking:
" Are we allowed to run in the house?"
" Isn't that MY bunny"
" Hey.. wait a minute... that's my water bowl and she's left goobers in it."
I could tell she wasn't especially pleased as she turned her back and tried to ignore the whole proceeding but the constant 'sqweeeek squeeeek" was deafening. ( and BTW BLESS all of you with puppies.. they ARE ummmm.. busy.)
The Pups mom has had Dobermans for over 26 years and has seen it all with the four she's raised.. she smiled benignly at her and said: " Oh look Sofi's making Goat Ears" ( you know when they get disgusted or dismayed at something and their ears go flat like airplane wings??)
That was it. Sofia did one of those backward glares as she flounced her way to they to the farthest corner of the courtyard, as far away as she could possibly get from the chaos that was once her home.. She let out a huge "HUFF as she threw herself down as if to say:
"Excuse me GOAT EAR??? And it's SofiA, not Sofi"
I've said it before and I suppose I have to say it again.. Sofia is an only child and a bratty one at that!

Very funny!!!  I've seen the "gee, there's goobers in my water bowl" look from my dogs when we had a Neopolitan Mastiff stay for a week. Yuck.

Now, you know what we'd love to see, don't you????   (Got any pics??)

Oh, poor Sofia!  When we had Max our red dobe with cropped ears we used to call the airplaine ears.  The kids always knew when Max was "put out" by the ears.  Tell Sofi that Tory understands, that's what our house is like when our 2 yr old grand daughter comes.  Very busy, but like everything else, this too will pass.

Thanks all... This is a picture of the "Goat Ears" from a previous visit from " friends" at the old house. still the same Dobertude!!

 

I honestly tried to get photos of the two, but Rubi was so fast, all I ended up with was a blurry backside..
