When supper was finished and all the leftover meat cut up and mixed with the broth for soup one night next week, Sophie (my faithful kitchen assistant) was ready to go to work.
She usually stands right next to me with her head smashed between my leg and the cupboards (just in case something falls off the counter top).
I was able to get my camera out and took this little movie (sorry it's kind of dark). There's nothing (well, maybe the doorbell....) that can pull this dog away from licking out a pan.
People have asked us whether Sophie missed Daisy or had a hard time getting used to Daisy being gone, but we haven't really noticed any changes in her behavior. I think she enjoys being the only dog now and getting to lick off ALL of the dirty dishes.
P.S. For those of your who are interested in the peanut wreath, I purchased mine at Wild Birds Unlimited so if you have a WBU nearby, you may be able to find one there, or most certainly they could order one for you. If you don't have a WBU nearby, here's a link to order one directly from Wild Birds Unlimited. It's truly one of my favorite bird feeders--especially if you enjoy watching bluejays because they just can't resist those peanuts!
