Meet SEEN’s Pet of the Week: Sophie, a Purebred English Springer Spaniel from West Bloomfield.
By Alana Blumenstein
Breed: Purebred English Springer Spaniel
Owner: Janice Schwartz
1. Where did you first meet your owner?
I met my owners through my pawrents’ owners. They live in Midland and are breeders of English Springer Spaniels.
2. What is your favorite place to go on a walk?
Favorite place to go on a walk is to Lone Pine Elementary School across the street from me, but my dad saw a coyote recently coming out of the field so we don’t go so close any more.
3. What is your favorite toy?
My favorite toy is my very first stuffed animal doggy. It’s soft and cuddly, and it used to have a beating heart in it to remind me of my mommy when I was a baby.
4. What is your go-to store in Metro Detroit?
My favorite go-to store is English Gardens. Everybody is so friendly and wants to say hi and pet me. I just love sniffing all the flowers, trees and landscaping.
5. What is your favorite treat?
My absolute favorite treat is Horizon organic cheese. I’m real stubborn and won’t come inside when I’m called so my pawrents try and trick me with the cheese.
6. Where is the best place to get groomed?
I love my groomer Stacy at Orchard Lake Animal Hospital. I get in and get out real quick. I also get really cute bows in my ears.
7. Do you have a hidden talent or skill?
I’m a springer — I spring in the yard.
8. What do you like about your owner?
I love my owners because they take such great care of me. I get lots of attention, and I go on two to three walks a day. I have lots of playtime in my yard with my mom. My dad plays Frisbee with me and sometimes the neighbor dogs come over to play. I also go on road trips with my pawsome pawrents Up North. They are the best to snuggle with and give me unconditional love!
9. What is the last thing you got in trouble for?
I got in trouble because I snuck the top on a water bottle cap in my mouth and wouldn’t drop it! Even with the cheese…
10. Who is your favorite dog account to follow on Instagram?
Instagram favorite is @jack.anni.luka.
