Sophie turned 2 in May, 2015. Spring would would prove to be her championship season.
1 January sleepover at Molly's house while mommy and daddy are on vacation. Molly apparently takes Sophie lying down.

4 Yay!! Sophie won her first 3-point major on July 3rd in Springfield, thank you Caryl Crouse! The photo isn't the best, but Sophie's parents are very happy and had celebratory margaritas.
5 Sophie's first major, for 3 points on July 3, 2015 in Springfield
6 The very next day on July 4, Sophie won the second major she needed for her championship. This time the win was for 4 points. Thanks again to Caryl Crouse!
7 And this is Sophie totally and utterly exhausted Saturday afternoon after winning her second major in Springfield
8 We went to pick up Sophie in Springfield on Sunday where she showed us her winning form. Unfortunately, she didn't show it in the ring, so no points that day, but we are eminently happy with the two majors under her belt (or collar). Sophie was so tired and worn out, she barely moved for 4 days afterwards.
9 Three weeks later, Caryl took Sophie on a road trip to Bloomsburg, PA where she got her final points and came home a champion! Well she was always a winner to us!
10 Sophie's championship certificate from the AKC finally arrived!
