When she sees trash bags beeing packed in the trunk of the car, Sonia pads out into the garage and waits at "her" door, knowing she will be invited to ride up the driveway to the street where the bin sits. And, of course, when the car goes through the DQ drive-thru, she comes to attention to remind Fio and Husband that she is supposed to get a Puppy Cup. She even knows the bedtime routine, and will badger Mommie and Daddy with growling whines if they seem to have forgtten.
Patterns, patterns, patterns. Sonia is truly Mommy's daughter.
