pet of the week Ellie.jpg

This is my son Chad’s dog, Ellie. She was 1 1/2 years old in this photo and full of energy! After the last big dump of snow, she made her way over our snow banks! She is a German Shorthair Pointer and has lots of energy to burn. She loves to come to our house to run it off! She is trying to show our dog Muri that it’s quicker if you leap over the snow banks instead of going around them. “Follow Me!”
