There were swarms of screaming kids, men dressed as Santa and elves, an extremely loud bouncy snow globe house, fire truck sirens and tons of people rushing up to pet her and all she wanted to do was lick that elf...

    Nursing Home Pet Therapy

    Ella started a nursing home's pet therapy program today and we were so proud of her. Overall, she did really well. She didn't jump on anyone or knock anyone down, which was my biggest concern. She went from wheelchair to wheelchair and just put her head on everyone's lap and licked their hands...

    Prey drive

    Ella's training has been pretty good so far, until she discovered cats. We have several stray cats in the neighborhood and they have organized against Ella lol. My greatest training challenge with Ella has always been pulling on the leash. She does not do it all the time, but if she sees a child...

My next suspicion is allergies, but I really hope not. The hot spot was lightly bleeding and then got crusty...

    I noticed that Ella is getting knots and matted fur behind her ears. I tried combing it out and had to pull hard to get them out. The knots get inbetween the back of the ear and her neck. I tried to take a pic but where I combed it, but now the other side is matting. She tolerated the hard...

    Sneaky 10 Month Old Puppy

    I was wondering if any of your dogs do this. Ella holds her treats in her mouth for 20 min before hiding them in the couch cushions. The funny thing is she enjoys holding and hiding them, more than eating them. Sneaky girl...
