Playing "Chase" which is a lot like "Run"
Cats that get more brushing & attention than she does.
a small Kong with a cookie inside; sticks; string bone
Pigs ears; whatever is in Lulu's dish; whatever the folks are having; anything that hits the floor
Down the street & around the corner to Scout's house
Sneaking the gi-normous knuckle bone back into the house when the folks aren't looking.
She was at the Humane Society of the Palouse, having been picked up as a stray out in Latah County. Two other people had already put "holds" on her, she was awaiting a spaying, so wasn't ready for adoption yet. I had been looking for the right dog for our family for over 4 years--it would take a special dog to learn to get along with our house-bound 'fraidy cat. We had already tried & given back 3 other dogs over the years. Amazingly, both other people ended up turning this dog down & we got her! She's been a sweetheart from the start, if a bit difficult to house-train.
Ella would really like to play with our cats--Seymour will have none of it, but Lulu is game, to a certain extent. Ella & Lulu chase after the same toys in the house, but Ella always gets them because Lulu won't stand her ground (but then Ella is 4 times heavier than Lulu--there's a big steam-roller threat there).
Ella is very quiet, she lets out a single bark when someone drives up, although she whines a little when she needs something. She far prefers the outside dog kennel to being on a cable in the yard. She LOVES playing with other dogs, especially Scout, the Cocker spaniel up the street. Her favorite place to sleep is at the feet of anyone in her family.
