We have had Ellie about a week now. There have been cute moments, ornery moments, gross moments, hyper moments, and calm moments. We love having a dog and are enjoying the constant company. Eric was actually gone this past week, so some of the first adventures were on my own at first and it was very nice to have Eric home so we could double team things. Here are some highlights of the first week:
We picked her up on Saturday bright and early :)
Here are two siblings saying goodbye. They were all very vocal about it too!
She had an ok car ride home - she finally settled down about a minute from our house.
She had a lot to learn at our house! She learned about her new toys, water bowl, dog yard, and kennel. She didn't know she would have to learn that tile is slippery, stairs are kind of scary, chairs are low to the ground and you can hit your head, and that the dishwasher, washer, and ice machine make crazy noises. After all that learning, she was tuckered out!
The next day, it was time for her first bath.... uh oh!
The faucet turned on, and she ran the other way!
And wanted OUT!
It was a two person job! Eric held on to her while I scrubbed her down.
She survived - even though she acted like it was the end of the world!
A clean and good smelling puppy was MUCH better!
Here are some of her other happenings throughout this past week:
She finds her kennel comfortable.... even when her "metal pillow" nearly pokes her eye out.
She chews on EVERYTHING....
She doesn't like being left behind the gate. She already shows she is a people dog! She wants to be wherever we are.
She still hasn't figured out her tail and back feet are attached to her body. She does some pretty funny summersaults while chasing her tail!
She is a very cute puppy, but will be a beautiful golden retriever! Here are some pretty shots of her!
She went to the vet this week and weighs just about 10 pounds. Her mom weighed about 90 pounds. How long do you think it will take for her to grow that 80 pounds?
Hopefully everyone had a wonderful Easter! Christ is Risen!
We are so thankful for this Easter season, it is a reminder of how our sins are washed away! We are so grateful for our amazing and forgiving God.
