Lady Sophia, the poodle, is sponsored by Robert and Katherine Lane. Lady Sophia is a standard white poodle based on a real dog belonging to the sponsors. She is an inside-row alternate animal that can take the place of another animal that needs to be removed or repaired. Lady Sophia’s head is turned slightly so that she looks coyly at her audience. She wears a simple brown saddle on a pink rose-colored saddle blanket and has a red ribbon around her neck. The saddle has the name “Bobby” emblazoned on it, while the saddle blanket has the names “Kaya” and “Harley.” A Siamese cat, named Demetrius, is curled behind the saddle keeping one wary eye open for the mouse lazing at the front of the saddle.
