I am sick. Soxy would not leave my side for the week before and during Christmas. I had the stomach virus that was going around and, unlike most, it lasted for over a week, not just 24-48 hours. Soxy was right by my side, no matter where D went, she was with me and if she went after him, he knew something was wrong and he needed to come see me. Now, when D is not home, Soxy is my shadow, but usually I can't get her attention if he is around. She is a very good doctor!
