We got a puppy! Her name is Ella and she has been a great addition to our house. We can probably officially get rid of our television, because between Jasmine and Ella our house is non-stop entertainment.
You get to see both our babies in this picture. Undoubtedly Anthony took this pic after telling her to leave Jasmine alone. So far we’ve had a two high speed chases, lots of hissing, and some swats, but no damage. Jasmine is curious about the Ella to, but definitely likes her own space. Since we are kennel training Ella, Jasmine gets free time around the house at night, when we’re away, and on occasional spurts during the day.
She is five months and 33 pounds, so she’s going to be a big dogie when she grows up. She is so mellow and has a great temperament. We sat with her for about an hour at Greenhill, and she was so calm. A little nervous, but we could tell she would fit in with us just right.
She went with us to a BBQ for the 4th yesterday, and did fine. She was able to hang out with lots of people, didn’t get bothered by fireworks, and didn’t beg for table scraps! Just this morning, she is figuring out how to play fetch and actually bring the ball back. So far she hasn’t tried to get into the yarn basket or chew on my spinning wheel, which makes this mommy very happy.
