Ellie is settling well. I would say our only REAL problem is keeping her from chasing the kitties!!!!! She LOVES the kids. I have 2 step daughters (9&12) that life with is full time, then of course Cate who is 4. Yesterday the 9 year old sat in the yard. She got attacked with bulldog love Ellie and Jagger had her on the ground loving all over her!!! She was laughing so hard and rolling all over, it was so heart warming to watch and all 3 of them loved it. I can see Ellie is very involved with the entire family. Jagger loves everyone but Cate is his person.
