The fall of 1998 my wife and I went to the SPCA to get a puppy. Once we arrived at the SPCA we came upon a litter of puppies, I walked up to the litter and then backed up, then a little golden puppy with pointed ears walked out of the litter and chose me. I named her Sophie. I was lucky to have shared 14 beautiful years with Sophie. During those years Dr. Lewis (Lewis Veterinarian Route 220) and his staff provided medical attention as needed and they always were kind, empathetic and ready to serve Sophie.
