More of Ellie

Our family has a soft spot for Golden Retrievers, and it’s no surprise everyone has been enjoying the new puppy. Ellie has settled in beautifully. She’s Miss Curiosity and positively full of energy and spunk. No matter how much you “puppy proof” things, Ellie’s bound to find something more interesting than her toys. She literally goes from one thing to the next. We all get a kick out of it!

Ruthanne does too, although she looks a little hesitant here.

She is definitely a lap dog (at the moment anyway: she's going to get big!), and she melts me when she climbs into my lap!

Snuggle bug.
The girls held treats and told her to “come.” We’re starting to work on some basic things.

therefore in the shadow of thy wings will I rejoice.
My soul followeth hard after thee:
thy right hand upholdeth me.”
Psalm 63:7-8

  1. What wonderful photos! Your photo of Ellie and Gigi is darling as is all the little folks loving on her. Just wait until she is big enough to really rough-house, play with, and chase them.

  2. Oh my gosh Sarah, I love the last photo with you and Ellie and Ellie with Gigi. Also, love that Ellie has a pink color and leash. It’s my favorite color. I hope you are making a scrapbook of Ellie’s puppy months.

    Thanks. Ummm. On the scrapbook, not now. The blog tends to be my scrapbook. Life is FULL right now between work and life and Ellie. 😉

  3. Precious! I love sleeping puppy photos since it means they’ve finally worn themselves out! LOL. It’s great you’ve so many helpers when it comes to obedience training, too!

  4. Let’s see . . . are you sure that little puppy is getting enough attention? So happy for you and her! Give her one more hug from me just in case . . .

  5. We have a 10 month old goldendoodle and we have the same pink puppy toy, it squeaks. Our dog chewed it up and pulled out all the stuffing though. Did you get it from Walmart?

    That toy was given to us, so I don’t know where it came from. So sorry! I imagine it will be chewed up in a matter of time!

  6. Have you thought about training Ellie as a therapy dog? She might enjoy coming to the nursing home with you. You certainly have the diligence to work with her and get her ready.

  7. First off, I like how her name is E and goes in line with all the kids after Drew! 🙂

    Are you going to breed her? Remember all the dogs in shelters. . . .spay and neutering is important.

    Have fun with your new family member, and there is a very good book called Puppy Preschool. Clicker training is fun too. Take care
