Ellie is now 6 months old and 50 pounds. Her dad weighed 100, and her mom a little less than 70. So, I’m looking for children to guess how much Ellie is going to weigh when she’s full grown? I’d love to hear!
(And yes, in that above picture, Ellie grabbed my highlighter.)

Right now, Ellie is learning several commands, but her best so far is “Off.” I can hold a treat in my open hand, and she will sit there and watch. As soon as I say “Yes,” she will take it. I’ve tried the standard dog biscuit types of treats, and while those are so-so to her, liver is hands-down her favorite. I think you’ll find, as we have, that your dog will respond enthusiastically to liver treats.
It’s hard to narrow down pictures of Ellie. She’s so cute (but not as cute as my nieces/nephews). She’s done beautifully this past week and has definitely become my buddy. We’re training with basic commands, and she’s especially catching on nicely to the “come” command. She’s a smart dog. I’m also grateful Ellie is sleeping all night long! She’s growing up so fast–literally!
Happy 1st Day of February. Where did January go?!
