Troy thinks Sofie is very cute and its fun to watch him with her. He is very gentle and seldom needs a reminder to be careful. He is slightly nervous when it comes to her puppy way of bouncing around and biting at feet and hands. He has called her "Ellie" a couple dozen times and "Pluto" a few too. It will take some time for him to remember her name, I guess.
Troy was very good friends with Ellie and still misses her. When he first saw Sofie on Tuesday morning, he asked if it was a baby Ellie. Alysa is a little more overwhelming when it comes to pets. Even though she is seven, I have to keep an eye on her. (I have my eye on Troy too, just in case you're wondering.)
