Miss Brinkley, on the left, is soon to be 8 years old. She is a Shihpoo (poodle & shih tzu mix) named after Tom Hanks’ dog in Susan’s all-time favorite movie, You’ve Got Mail.

She sleeps in the bed with Susan and her favorite thing to do is go on long walks. Her favorite thing to play with are socks!

Susan’s “granddog” is also featured in this photo, on the right. Her name is Riley. She is a 3.5 year old shih tzu & bichon frise mix. She sleeps in a crate next to her daughter and son-in-law’s bed. She also loves long walks.

Brinkley and Riley heard there might be a human baby moving into that crib soon, so they had to go check it out for themselves!

Speaking of beloved four-footed friends, The Scruff reminds everyone: please spay or neuter your pets.

Looking forward,
