This week’s theme: Soft

“Mom, do you see the resemblance?”

I had to snap this photo when Matthew grabbed Sophie and asked me that question. This kid comes home from school, says hello to and plays with the dogs and then thinks to say “hi” to his mother. He walks around the house like this with Sophie quite often and, from her vantage point, she surveys her kingdom.She is soft — warm and cuddly. And this picture touches a soft spot in my heart because it is a typical moment in the life of my Mattie-Boo, my little soft-hearted boy. (OK, he’s not so little any more . . . I know that, believe me, but he’ll always be my little Boo.)

    With such an adorable pet and cuddly at that, I would be maybe holding him the whole day too.
    Thanks for the visit.

  2. What a perfect picture!

    I agree with Friday’s Child – I’d be holding Sophie all day long too 🙂 We have a Great Dane pup, and at just over 3 months old my days of holding him are over. He’s too heavy already!

  3. Wonderful photo. 🙂 Sophie looks very soft and cute. 🙂

    Teens always relate to pets well. I think that teenage years without a pet must be pretty rough. What am I saying? Life without a pet would be pretty rough! he he

  14. Hi… visiting from Island Girl’s… and I’ll be back 🙂 Happy Weekend.

  15. Nice looking dog, I’ll take your workd for it about his softness.

  16. I think the photographer counts as the third soft in this photo for the soft feelings they are feeling!

    Our son is 29 now and I still remember fondly a day in a grocery store parking lot when we walked hand in hand into the store at 12 years old. . . before he went through the ‘cool’ stage.
