Lately Sophie has really taken an interest in Tucker. She turns and smiles whenever he walks into the room, laughs when he shakes his head or tries to paw us, and she loves to reach out and pet his fur, especially his ears. Although Tucker whines a lot more since Sophie has joined our family, he’s kind to her, even when her hand accidentally strays from his ear and into his eye.
