About Me

My name is Sophie, I live in Sweden with my husband Tobias and our four dogs and two cats.

Alt text

I work as an archaeologist and detection dog handler at the local county museum.

I love dogs. Dogs are my biggest hobby and if I didn't have dogs I'm not sure what I would do! I have 3 German Shepherds and one German hunt terrier.

Some of my other hobbies are:

  • tattoos
  • tv series and documentaries
  • archaeology and history
  • orchids and gardening
  • hiking and being outdoors
  • hunting
  • reading
  • dark things such as serial killers and cults

I'm also interested in making private swaps with people that are interested in the same things as me :)


My pets

Meet my archaeology dog Thunder Dust's Quento (called Fabel). He's a purebred German shepherd and he's trained to detect human skeleton. We do pretty much everything together; work, sleep, go out on adventures, exercise and eat.
He loves playing, tracking, bone detection and IPO.

This is Försvarsmaktens Idun, she is bred by the Swedish armed forces (in her pedigree name "Försvarsmaktens" means armed forces). She's also a German shepherd and she's to be trained in obedience, tracking, IPO and a also detection. She loves balls and other round toys.

Trulls - the Queen of the house. She is a rescue and we don't know much about her background, but she's lived with us for almost a year now and she's taken over the place completely.
She likes treats of all kinds and she talks a lot.

Bobba - the youngest cat in the household.

I love tea, so it has to have it's own place here in my profile.

PROFILE COMMENT SWAP I live in South Texas in the United States and it is sunny and 60*F today. Is it really cold all winter long? I loved the Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rice and of course Interview with a Vampire. I am not much on Punk Rock,but do enjoy Classic Rock and Country. It must be fun to "dig up" history. Maybe we will meet again through a swap. I am 54(golden oldie,LOL)

CuriosaKat on Dec 12, 2012:

mabuhay! greetings from the philippines... you got me at "archaeology student"! that's soooo cool! when i was a kid i wanted to be one and started digging our yard. after digging many holes, i only found old toys we buried and plastic bags. no dinosaur bones. hehe. btw, i have orchid postcards from the philippines. let me know if you'd like to swap postcards. have a lovely wednesday! =) *** Profile Comment Swap***
