Sox Enjoys Our Neighbor's Christmas Lights

I'll have to say, we have the cutest, sweetest puppy dog in the whole world. Ok, well, I am a bit biased, and yes she isn't a puppy anymore, but she will always be my little puppy dog.

Sox originally was my oldest son's dog, but after he left she adopted me. I don't mind, though, I fell in love with her the first time I set eyes on her. 

We adopted her from a no kill shelter when she was about nine weeks old. She weighed less than ten pounds. She now weighs about 45 pounds.  She was born in the shelter; her mother was part Bassett and Beagle, and her dad was part Australian Shepherd and some sort of Spaniel. Most people ask if she is part Border Collie, and I guess she kinda looks like a Border Collie with floppy ears. 

Along with her cute looks, is a really great personality. She loves people, and is very sweet. She is very smart, and you can tell she wants to please you. Even though she is five, she still loves to play and run in the yard.  She probably would have made a good herder, I can tell by the way she runs.

Usually she is always in the same room as I am, but lately, she has made herself comfortable in the front room. You see, the neighbors have a really pretty Christmas light display and Sox sits on the bed and stares out the window at the lights.
