meet ellie.

This is Ellie! I adopted her from Young Williams Animal Shelter last week and it’s crazy how much I already love her.

  {meeting for the first time – it was love at first sight}

She’s an 8-year-old poodle mix. She was seized from her owners but the shelter didn’t tell me why. From what I can tell she doesn’t seem scared or skiddish so hopefully it wasn’t something sad…

I really wanted an older dog 1) because I didn’t want to have to potty train her 2) getting a puppy implies at least a 12 year commitment and I honestly don’t know where my life will be in 5 years let alone 12 3) people rarely adopt older dogs and so I wanted to give this little girl a home.

{Farmer’s Market outing}

We went to the Farmer’s Market this week and she loved playing with all the other dogs and everybody wanted to pet her (duh – how could you resist that face!). It’s only been a week and already I feel so much happier with her in my life. It’s so much nicer to have someone (even if it’s a dog) to come home to and to cuddle with. Be prepared for many more posts of my new baby!

{now I have someone to watch True Blood with}
