Happy Homemade Halloween!

Got a little creative this year for Ellie's costume! I must admit that I didn't come up with the idea, but when I saw it online, I knew it was perfect for my constant pooper

Happy Halloween!

Ellie's latest BFF

Ellie is a very social dog, both with people, dogs and even sometimes cats. Getting to come to work with me is a special treat for her because she sees doggy friends every day. Well, even more fun for her is that I tend to occasionally get shuffled around with the office which means she gets to befriend new dogs all the time.

Here I will take you through her various love affairs.

It all started out with Goldie. She is my sister's dog, and Ellie's first friend since knowing me because we used to all live together.

More recently, Ellie has taken a liking to my coworker's English Lab, Stella. Stella is a very well-behaved dog who gets along with everyone and her only vice is being queen of the ChuckIt ball.

Ellie had a short office romance with Walter, the deaf Great Dane. She was nervous about his size, but loved to submit to him and kiss his face off.

Now her current BFF's name is Sadie and she's a Black Lab/Basset Hound mix. She looks like a Lab whose legs forgot to grow! (And the Basset was the dad!)

Balls and Birthday Treats

Last Friday, I came home to an early surprise:

I've kind of been dreaming of a giant birthday cookie all my life. I know, I'm easy to please. :)

I also won a pack of 12 tennis balls at work, so this was the fun that ensued when I opened the entire pack and spilled them on the floor for Ellie.

The video is a little anticlimactic as she was quite confused...
