   Leave a bone for Ellie Mae

Ellie (we mostly call her this), Ellie belly, Elle-belle, Elle, Ellie bean, Jelly Bean

Quick Bio:
-mutt-dog rescue

September 1st 2005

squirrels, belly rubs, cozy dark corners, under the bed, chasing cats, snacks

teeth brushing, combing, too much attention

Favorite Toy:
she's not into toys

Favorite Food:
natural balance vegetarian canned food, peanut butter cookies, pumpkin

Favorite Walk:
anywhere she can track squirrels, the dog park

Best Tricks:
stand up to "say please", down, working on more

Arrival Story:
We got her from a rescue called Animals First Foundation. Ellie was a stray in Eastern Washington. She was taken in a passed around to a few organizations. She had a microchip and the man who had registered it called her "black dog". He didn't want her back. We were fostering her because we weren't sure two females would work out (Sienna can be bossy and demanding!). But they did and we fell in love with her!

Ellie still has some fears we are working on like a fear of cars which is getting better. She is also still learning to leash walk properly. She has a lot of energy outside and is learning to play with Sienna a bit at the park. Inside she is a calm girl but likes to cuddle a bit and practice her training.

Forums Motto:
born to run!

Hey dogsters!

Long time no write. Sorry I've been preoccupied. And the computer was packed up so I couldn't write. More on that later.

It's been one whole year since I've been with my new family! It's been a good one. Things have really changed since my arrival. Especially this summer. We had to pack up and move and me and Sienna were scared a lot. But then all the traveling made us bond really tight. We are the best of friends. We don't like being parted at all. We use each other as pillows. I follow her around like a...puppy. I also made better friends with the cat.

My new place is pretty good because it has a BIG yard with lots of branches with squirrels running all across them. It's like they are here just to entertain me. So much fun. Me and the cat share time looking out the window but then I go out and run myself ragged chasing them from side to side of the house. One of these days I'm going to climb the tree and get one of them. You think I can do it? Or maybe one will climb down and let me have a chase.

My mom and dad say they are so lucky because I cuddle so much more now! Our new bed has no place to hide underneath and so I have to go on top. It's a little crowded with another dog and cat to share with not to mention the humans but I still take my share. Mom says my fluff is even bigger. Good thing it all grew back tenfold after my mange.

Ok better sign off and eat Sienna's dinner (already had mine--we share) if I can sneak it. Lots of love to all my dogster pals. And some catster ones too I guess. You cats better watch out though, I'm gonna chase ya!

Love, Ellie


no plumbers!

Hey pups.

I am happy to say my fur is growing back and I am looking more like a regular pup instead of a bare legged pup. But I still have some knotted fur. My parents got a furminator which I hated so much that I peed when dad was combing me. I never do that!

I've been pretty protective. When there was a new guy smoking at the field I woofed at him to get away. Then a plumber came to my house and I woofed at him a lot. I don't like strange people in my house! So there!

Mom took me on a scary walk yesterday. Different than the usual trip. We had to go by the grocery store which was scary because of the doors. Then I saw two cats on the rest of the walk. Mom has to wrap the leash around a tree to keep me from getting them. Then I had to go to a scary place where mom mailed a package. A person thought I was attacking them but really I was just trying to run away I was so scared of the door. Mom says no more places with automatic doors for me. I cheered myself up by finding 3 cats on the way back including my neighbor's cat Guster who I chased into the garage.

I got some payback at home because my brother cat chased me. I'm a little scared of him sometimes. Although we have been caught sleeping next to each other on the bed. Yup, I've been sleeping up there sometimes.

To sum things up, I hate:
Tall scary guys
Automatic doors
New walks

I love:
chasing cats
my sister Sienna
mom and dad

Hope you all are having a good March!



Happy Valentine's!

Hi everyone,

Happy Valentine's Day! I have been becoming more friendly and loving to my family. Just in time for valentine's day. They caught me up on the bed at night sleeping at their feet. They weren't supposed to see that! A few times I got embarrassed and ran off. I tend to do it in the night when no one sees me.

It used to be real tough for my mom to get a kiss out of me but I've been giving a lot of them out lately.

I'm less shy and come downstairs instead of hiding upstairs a lot. I think I am more secure and happy in my home.

Me and Sienna are on the same page a lot. We like snacks and we both look for the humans to come home at the same time. I like her.

Hope you and your humans have a great day today.
love Ellie
