In Sophie's first year of life, she didn't have a lot of chances to get used to animals because most people at school didn't have any. Since we've been at Ben's parents' house for a month, she has gotten to hang out with a lot of animals, and she is now obsessed with them.
The first animal she really got to know and like was Shep the dog. He doesn't really care for Sophie, so he usually walks away when she comes near. I make him sit sometimes so she can pet him though...
Sophie LOVES the kitties, and the good thing is, these kitties love her too. There are two, and they are both the nicest cats. She pets them, picks them up, pushes them, and hits them, and they put up with all of it without scratching, hissing, or running away. Sophie calls them "diddy" for "kitty."
She also loves to walk down to the barn to see the goats (and pig). We do this every day, usually about 3 times, and then she also often tries to talk Grandpa and Grandma into going down with her too.
