We have always wondered just how old Sofia is.. When we got her two years ago, our vet thought somewhere between three and four.
Well we know now:
Sofia is a DOBERTEEN.. She's learned exactly how to play Mom against Dad and vice versa
Last night I was really tired.. Couldn't even make it through NCIS ( Sorry Paul.. I really tried)
I trudged upstairs at 8:45 and was sound asleep by 8:46.
At 10:00 PM I feel a cold nose on my neck..
"Honey.. I'm really tired..and I just might be getting a headache"
With that I heard a 'SSSSSNNNNNooooort"
There she was in all her Divaness.. play bowing.. snorting...nub wagging and that " I really have to go NOW" attitude.
Downstairs I go. Mike is awake..
" I've tried three times now and she doesnt' have to go potty, all she wants to do is stalk that gopher."
All the while she's dancing around telling him..
" I got her up.. see what I learned.. hahahhahmehaw.. Snnnooort".
I guess it's my fault, I have told her on occasion.. " I'm busy now.. go ask your Dad" and she does...
Tables are turning on my training method..
KEVIN WHERE ARE YOU???

Nope.  (Jackson Gibbs is a tough old bird.)  Last night's episode was a repeat of last September's season 8 opener---you missed it then, too?  Oh my. (( Paloma Reynosa is no longer with us---YAY))

The Doberdiva as a Doberteen? Who would've known!? (Except, you know, the diva herself!)

I know I know.. I've been MIA most of the season, that's why the re-runs have so much appeal..

We hit the floor running in the morning and don't stop til we can run no more.

Sofia knows we're busy and is with us most of the day snooping around the construction sight, supervising the worker bees, sniffing all the great smelling paint, varnish, and wood...investigating the new plants and rolling around on her new lawn.

... If I say 'no' she asks her Dad, if it's the same answer, she will throw herself down with a huff and pout. 

"No you cannot eat the blossoms on the baby daisies."

" No that box of tiles is for the fountain,not you"

" Nooooo leave Esteban alone, he needs to go to work"

Yesterday the upholstery guy came to pick up a sofa we're having covered ( BTW it's going to be a pretty mocha velvet EXACTLY the same color as Sofia.. aren't we pathetic??)

We had it out on the sidewalk for p/u and instead of taking a run with Mike, she plopped herself down on it so Paco couldn't take it without taking her. She glared at him and snorted. The upholstery guy was not amused..

Oh my.. that Sofia.. she's such a character.

Your descriptions make it so I can see all her actions, feel her attitude, and I just love your stories Kate!

Made my morning, I kept the post from Steve though.. he doesn't need to learn such tactics.. he's been a pill still since his neuter (now we bark at Stella or me in the morning because.. well.. it seems like a fun thing to do!)

Are you sure it's not mid-life insanity? I can picture the Diva in a bright yellow Mustang convertible, throwing sunflowers to the masses, music booming ...weaving thru the valleys to San Diego! ah, Sofia, keep an eye on the beautiful sofa!

Kate, I think Zelda's taking after your Diva! She just gave me the "snob" treatment for saying no to something that she wanted and when I ask her to move (her favorite spot is in front of my closet door), she would stare at me like, "I'm not moving for you, just like you said no to me chewing on that fluffy thing!" (socks. Zelda has a footwear fetish, i swear! She sniffs the inside of shoes and chew on socks.)

Dobes are such characters, all of them! XDD

Promise when you get the sofa back, you post a pic of Sophia in all her Divaness (word??) sprawled out on it. 

I agree, you are a master storyteller.  I could just hear the snort to get you out of bed...the look you gave Mike when he's awake, now you're awake and there's the Diva dancing at the mahem.

I  can just imagine her on the couch and those guys standing around..."you get her off."  "No, you get her off"  someone takes a step toward her and snort, they back up.  I love it...

Dear Zelda

You do my heart proud!!.. You are coming into your own DivaDom with flying colors...Of COURSE you can huff your way into anything you want.. just ask me.. and as far as the shoes are concerned/ The difference between us and the real animals is our ability to accessorize.. You GO GIRL I am attaching a picture of me in my favorite 'off the shoulder' little black dress.. all it needs is a lovely pair of Jimmy Choo shoes ( black pumps if you please.)

Air kisses, nose bumps and lots of love!!

S.
