translating biophilia into a love of life

I shudder to think about harm coming to my dog.

Sophie Tucker, wonder dog

I can’t imagine what it was like for the family of Sophie Tucker when she fell overboard into the sea off Australia.  Surprisingly, Sophie survived the rough sea and swam 5 nautical miles (!!!) to an island where she survived alone for 4 months.  Previously a house “pet”, Sophie  apparently caught and ate baby wild goats on the island to survive.

After an exuberant reunion with her human family, Sophie has rapidly acclimated to domestic life; she seemed eager to exchange the solitary hunting life for human companionship and air conditioning.

If Sophie’s story isn’t touching enough (of if you want to get a cuteness overload) check out Casey.  A chihuahua/terrier mix, Casey is dang eager to please.
