Remembering Ellie

5:30am body slams and kisses
wake up, I'm hungry
hanging on to Andy's ears
Where's breakfast?
I'm hungry
Where's the ball?
I'm still hungry
Cecelia and Mark always have treats when they say hello
Dewey Beach
Trying to Drown me, save me
The Wells'
Heavy fast tail wagging
wet kisses
jumping high
Congressional Cemetery
serenading the firetruck sirens with my off key howls
riding waves
Amhearst, NH
chuck it, finding balls & fitting as many as I can in my mouth
Cocoa, Lydia and Olivia
settle, good girl, settle
wanna flip, wanna flip, wanna flip
are we there yet?
wanna run, wanna run, wanna run
shaking off mama's kisses
throw the ball already, wanna run, wanna flip
Deer Isle, Maine
The Papsters
Maggie, yikes
Teaching Cocoa hot dogs and dog doors go together
Banco, Va
Always something good to eat at The Smart
16th Street with Maude & Tucker
hmm, they can fight --- I'll just go over here and eat what they are fighting over
sleeping tight next to mama's curved back, gotta get closer
one leap onto the kitchen counter to get that cat food
Climbing Old Rag
a fourth dog?
Melissa & Booker
Ellie COME, good girl
the synthetic nipple
who's that white fuzzy puppy?
Who's that yappy girl dog named after my boy cat?
Hopewell, Virginia
Cashiers at Pet Smart...always a cookie in hand
Making Myrtle run after me down the sidewalk with nothing on except an m&m in hand...hehehehe
Yeah, I'm a food whore
I can find anything that smells like it might be edible
I'm still hungry
more food please

She loved her mama
Her mama loved her

I miss you Ellie Bellie
