Age of My Dog: 7 years
My Dog’s Birthday or Gotcha Day (or month): Sept. 15, 2005
About My Dog’s Birthday: This is close to the actual day, I think! For all 37 years of my life, I have been lucky enough to have dogs for companions. Ella is one of the most loyal dogs I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is the oldest of my 4 furkids. Three years ago I became very ill and had to stop working. She has become even more protective because of my illness. She will stand out in the rain or freezing cold after I leave until she is forced in the house. When I was hospitalized for 4 weeks it was hardest on Ella. She loves camping and hiking, but playing on the beach is her favorite. She is very smart and jumps super high!
For rescues only: how I got my dog: I adopted my dog from a woman that had rescued a litter of small breed/mix puppies! I’m not sure of Ella’s breed, possibly Terrier and goat! Haha! Ella was the runt of the litter and didn’t match the other pups appearance. Now she is a plump 18 pounds with the most adorable underbite and crazy hair. I love her so much!
