What a weekend! We packed so much into one weekend that it FLEW by!! The main event was definitely Saturday when we picked up our puppy, Elsbeth (aka Ellie), from Charlotte! We named her after the cooky attorney in one of our favorite shows, The Good Wife. Ellie is a mastiff. She’s gonna be HUUUUUUGE!
It felt like we drove all day! We dropped her off at Petsmart to get a puppy bath before we brought her home. We weren’t actually home and settled until about 6! So, we got to play a little, and then it was bath time for Turner!
Ellie did great on her first night with us. We’re definitely crate training her. She will NOT be sleeping in our bed. First of all, mastiffs snore like a freight train. And, SECOND, she will be bigger than me in a few months. So, no, she will need her own space. She cried for a few minutes in her crate and then slept like a rock! Didn’t make a peep! What a good girl.
She and Turner are already getting to be good buddies. He likes to flail things in her face, and she just looks at him like he’s crazy.
Ellie and Daddy are hitting it off too!
Me and Ellie? Well, I’m gonna go ahead and say I’m the “pack leader” so she follows me everywhere. Sleeps on my feet, sleeps in my office, stares at me while I cook.
You get the picture! Needless to say, we’re in love. She’s the perfect addition to our family. She brings pure joy into the mix! Can’t wait to share more of my growing babies!!! Sending you lots of puppy kisses to keep you warm over the next few days!!
