When Andrés first told us that the hostel was “animal friendly” and that they had a cat and a dog, we didn’t think anything of it. And then when we first saw you as we walked through the gate, standing at the top of the steps waiting to meet us, we just knew. We loved you.
We love how perfectly you fit next to us during your impromptu cuddle sessions.
We love your (literal) puppy dog face when you wanna join our hammock party.
We love your enthusiasm.
We love that you are calm, cool, and collected.
We love the way you blend in with your surroundings.
We love that you think you’re a big watchdog, when in reality you’re just our baby nugget.
Here’s to you Sofía. We love you. Thanks for being our very first friend on the road.
