Ellie: Adult Puppy

Border Collie
June 29, 2014

After we lost our beloved Pluto at 14 years,11 months, we thought we'd wait a year to get another dog. But Pluto's spirit directed us to check the Doggie Protective Services rescue site, and we saw this FACE. She was picked up as a starving stray in SoCal after having a litter of puppies. She was in a shelter for a month, DPS NoCal foster care (they named her Dottie) for 2 weeks, and then found us. She was very shy and quiet, but now she talks and sings and befriends every single human she meets (and most dogs). We named her Ellie after the little girl who became a woman in the movie "UP" who said "Adventure is Out There!" And it is! She has gone with us to Yosemite and Lake Tahoe. She LOVES to eat, leap, and twirl in snow and is fascinated by mule deer. She loves to sleep on my son's bed--unless he's in there too. We can't imagine life without her. Her head is pure Border Collie, and the rest of her is a wild patchwork of different textures of black and white fur. Retriever? Springer Spaniel? Who knows? We think she was about 3 when we got her on August 18, 2013, which we decided will be her "birthday."

Ellie, you fell into the lap of luxury and love - and deservingly so. I'm very honored that we share the same birthday! I'll be thinking of you on the 18th :-)
