Sophie Sapphire is now retired and loving it! She 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!
