Sophie loves to wait for the mailman, although she does not love the mailman. She is very obedient and won 1st place in 4-H dog obedience 3 years in a row! Obedience events are where dogs perform a series of exercises ranging from following basic commands, like sit, stay and down, to more advanced verbal commands and hand signals. Dogs are judged on how closely they match a perfect performance. Sophie is very proud of her obedience trophy!
