All of the above is just back story for the real story here: On Sunday, we took Sophie out on a boat. Bobby’s dad just got a pontoon boat, and while we were visiting with him on Sunday, he asked if we wanted to go for a ride. We had Sophie with us though, which brought on a dilemma – leave her there or take her with? Take her, of course! Luckily I had her harness and leash in my car. I grabbed them and Sophie, and off we went! Sophie always loves car rides, and now she was going to be able to experience a boat ride. Naturally, she loved it. I’m not going to lie, she was a little bit nervous at first. She wouldn’t sit and just kept meowing, but after about 10 minutes she settled down and relaxed. She explored the boat, found her a spot that had some good wind exposure, and the rest is history. She reminded me of those girls in the old Herbal Essence shampoo commercials – you know, the ones when they were washing their hair and waving their heads back and forth, shouting “Yes!” over and over? Yeah, that was Sophie on the boat. Eyes closed, head moving back and forth, enjoying the breeze on her face – sheer bliss. Check it out:
*DISCLAIMER: Sophie’s outside play time is always 100% supervised.
