Camera Critters-Sofie

While sitting in Starbucks and looking out the window, I noticed that a young couple secured a lovely looking dog outside on the bicycle rack before they entered the cafe. With their permission I went outside and had a friendly chat with Sofie, a sweet and gentle animal. She patiently allowed me to snap several photos so I could show y'all this 4-year-old beauty. Thanks Sofie!! If you want to see some more interesting "camera critters" click here.

  1. He's gorgeous and well wrapped up for winter, I see. I like the colour co-ordinated - with dog - outfit.

  2. Such a nice looking dog. As cold as it was, I see she has a coat on and a good thing if stuck outdoors. A lovely dog.

  3. OMG, he is soooo cute. I love his mohawk hairdo. :-)

    I wonder how the owner looks like. Did you get a photo of him/her too?

    I would fall on the floor laughing if he/she has the same hair style.

  6. Sofie must be as hearty as the people who live in Minnesota (including my brother and his family).

    Yesterday on CNN they showed a weatherman outside in Minnesota who used a banana as a hammer to drive a nail through a board. THey said that bananas freeze as hard as steel at 13 below zero, F. I am sure that the Costa Ricans who grow and pick the bananas would never imagine that you Minnesotas could use them for hammers.

    I hope you and Sofie's owners enjoyed Costa Rican cofee at Starbucks.

  11. Glad you caught her on camera, nice looking dog, with the weather you have been having these last few days I think she might have needed the coat.
    My friend lives in St Paul and she said her pipes froze this last week.

  19. Now I understand the cold weather coat. I saw a Stephen Fry television programme last night where he drives thru all 52 states and he was in St. Paul and we saw covered walkways you use to go from place to place, so you don't have to go outside in the extreme cold. Really brought it home to me how cold it gets! Hurry up Mexico!

  21. I like his hair style too. He must be one relaxed and layed back dog.
