    Default Ellie

    Good Morning EBN Family!!

    Hope every one and their babies are well.

    I just need to vent...

    First and foremost I LOVE Ms Ellie with my whole being, and when days like described below happen it rips my heart apart

    So most know that we have been down a long road with Ellie and potty manners, and the doc's cleared of her of medical reasons.

    We were STARTING to make good progress with her potty manners, and this weekend hubby had to get new work boots, which in our split level house, the shoe rack is right inside the main door, and is Ellie's access to her potty, SOMEHOW, in the process of hubby opening his new boots (ellie stood at the top of the stairs watching him, and mind you the shoes DID NOTHING to her) have now SPOOKED her to the point we now have to RETRAIN her that is OK to go up and down the stairs to go potty.

    I did call her behavior trainer, to get Ms Ellie, back right, she is AMAZING, and gave me tips on what to do, so for right now daddy's boots have to stay OUT of the house

    - Ok I'm done

    Have a great day!!


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom

    and I'm not laughing either................. ok, just a tiny bit .. so, does anyone know what the reason is behind this behavior of most of ours.. this ocd and scared of odd things? That IS an honest question. I wonder if it's their eye placement that things just appear out of order? It is endearing most of the time, but I do question it as they all seem to have a touch at least of it.

    I'm laughing... OCD babies!

    I kid you not, I'm 100% serious when i say this... our first bully, Nitschke, would poo where he stood if we moved any furniture. We had to distract him or place him in another room with door closed if we needed to move something

    @MFrey2012 Oh Melissa, I FEEL YOU 100% ! You're not alone friend! Since it's been a while that Joey has had run of the house I've started leaving all the doors to bedrooms, etc. open for her. Well, God forbid if I leave a laundry basket on top of the bed, she will be sure TO ALERT me to the fact that it does NOT belong there and will bark and stare at it until I put it where it belongs! So, looks like they all have "their things" some afraid, some bullish, some just plain OCD to the max I bet Ms. Ellie makes friends with the boots soon
    May the sun in your eyes be your ONLY problem today! Peace Friends!

    Oh my gosh. ohhh Ms. Ellie!! Our little Pippen is a big scaredy cat of a lot of things but mainly trash bags. And she knows the difference between grocery bags and trash bags because if we pull a grocery bag out she doesn't care but the second she sees a trash bag, she is out of the room!! LOL. On the other hand, our other bully, Barkley, who is 4 years old is not scared of ANYTHING!! He is literally the most mosey dog in the world and wants to see everything and just loves anything that's new. It's so funny, they are the exact opposites in every way too!!

    @Daphne DuMaurier and @Hankster - I am hoping to be able to laugh soon, we have been trying for a little over a year now to get Ellie house trained, mamma is ready to give her a little freedom from her crate.
    @Manydogs - Lynn hope you are doing well, I know I am set my ways to, this May baby does NOT like change, but holy moly, she LOOKED right at daddy when he was taking the shoes out of the box, we have bought many shoes, for some reason they are enemy #1
    @2BullyMama - Christine, thank you for that story, it was like a bowl chicken soup, glad to know i'm not alone.
    @sisters3 - Sue, she BETTER make friends with those boots ASAP, or mommy might need to check in to a place for special people.
    @sunkissedpr1ncs - Michele, OH yes Ms Ellie is NOT a fan either bags, she will squint her eyes when I open a new trash bag.


    Thanks and much Love,

    Melissa - Ellie's Mom
