I tried to get a pic but she woke up.

    Gotta say.... She is nice and comfy in her home

They run into each other all the time, when we are out on our walks Ellie is always bumping into Jagger I love Ellie very much, she fits into our nutty little family very well. She is so happy to be here with us. When we call her and love on her, she does what my husband says is her happy dance lol She sits on her butt and her front feet looks like she is running we crack up every time she does it.

    Even our vet said today he can see the difference in her and the love she has. Cate was at the vet with me sitting on the floor playing with the office cat. Another dog walked in and Ellie immediately went and stood in front of Cate. Never barked, growled or made an aggressive move. Was just very attentive to where that other dog was in proximity to Cate. We had her in the waiting area so he could see her interact with other unfamiliar people and pets. I am thankful for my vet. He is very involved and not only helps with their health but also behavior. I loved seeing Ellie "protect" Cate.

    My babies are the same. As soon as a new four legged friend comes over it is playtime. Jagger is extremely social and loves everyone. Right now it is taking Ellie a little longer to warm up to situations. Jagger helps with this. HE will instigate a wrestling match in the middle of the pet store if he gets the opportunity.

    I love hearing adoption and rescue stories, good and bad. It lets you see that there are many in need and many that find their fairy tale.
    I love this post, hearing how Ellie protected Cate and how she went
    about it just touched me deeply.

    I LOVE BULLIES.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    We were not looking for Ellie. But I was drawn to her for a reason I believe. She fits with us so well. And is even able to tolerate Jagger who is a pest. She is awesome with young children. Is great on her leash and loves her walks. She is a garden hose fanatic. She loves to be touched and just loved on. She has become extremely protective of Cate, especially if we are out and about. Not aggressive, just very aware. She is beginning to get to a point where she can meet 2 and 4 legged friends and not be so afraid.

    I am obviously an animal lover, have been as long as I can remember. I feel if you get a animal whatever it may be. You make a commitment for the rest of their life to be their person and take care of them and if you can't take care of them, put them in a better situation. I think Ellie is starting to realize this.

    She has found her forever family.

    Cate loves Ellie. Says Ellie is her baby lol. Because that is what I say. Jagger is Cate's shadow but Ellie is her protector. Ellie has a very good mother and guardian instinct. It's like she needs something to watch over. Cate really likes it. I'll have to get some pictures of how Cate bear hugs Ellie and lays on her and how they sleep together. Cate is sick right now so Ellie and Jagger are both in my room so she can rest without them trying to "comfort" her. Ther idea of comfort is to literally smother you with kisses and lay on you.

    Ellie has been doing really well. Finally, going to get this skin thing under control.
    My Gran (great grandma). Gave me a recipe for homemade wipes she always made when her kids were little. Said she used them on sores, scrapes, anything itchy and my great uncle's arms because he was allergic to the peanut fields he worked in.

    It's paper towels cut into squares. ( I left them attached and folded them like wipes)

    In a tea jug she mixed 2/3 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol and then filled the jug with water until it was half full. Gran never uses real measurements. She just "eye balls" everything.

    Put the cut paper towels in a ziplock bag and poured the water mix over them so they were all wet, not dripping.

    I've been using these on Ellie's wrinkles for about 3 days and they look amazing. Even her tear stains are starting to lighten.

    I asked her where this came from. She said it's just something her family always used she doesn't really know.

    It's super easy and way cheaper than the wipes at the pet store. I asked my vet if it was okay that I use them on Ellie's face. He said as long as I didn't get it in her eyes it was fine. Said is actually a good mix.
