Ella has two new outfits: an outdoor coat for these cold wintry days and a sweater she can wear indoors or out. We went to our local pet store the other night to buy a pack of yak milk chew sticks (the dogs love them!) and we took Ella along. She enjoys going to the pet store and making friends, both human and canine. She met a nice Corgi named Bandit and received a lot of attention from the salespeople.
Ella is a great little dog. I've never had a dog I could put clothes on, and to be honest, it's quite a lot of fun. Ella is so tolerant of wearing clothes, it makes me wonder if her previous owners used to dress her. Our other dogs would never put up with it, but they don't need coats or sweaters like Ella does. She shivers in the cold -- and we've been having some cold weather lately! We even had snow flurries the day before Thanksgiving! At night, especially if it's raining, Ella will run from us when we try to get her to go outside to use the potty. Fortunately she's small enough to pick up and carry outside. Now we put the coat on her and I think it helps keep her a little warmer. When she curls up to go to sleep at night, we put a blanket over her, which she really seems to like.
Doesn't this sweater look smart on her! My husband picked it out, and it was 50% off -- only $9. That's a steal!
Over the holiday weekend we all went for a walk on the greenway. It was a cold, windy day, but nice and sunny. Before long, we were toasty warm from our brisk walk. Below are Ella, Henry and Phoebe posing for a photo with daddy. Yes, he wears shorts year-round, even in 30-degree weather!
I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend. What fun things did you do?
