My neighbors left their dog Sophie behind as they were moving. I went over and fed her for 4 days before I took her home (I left a note on their door so I wouldn't get busted for stealing her) I found out after I took Sophie home with me that they were not going to take her with them, and they were looking for a new home for her. So I have her now. She is so cute! I have a house full of cats, Sophie doesn't seem to be bothered by them, but they are scared of her! Sophie whines... a lot! I sure hope that's normal... I used to hear her whine all the time when she was next door, and she continues to do the same now.
