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 very tolerant of being dressed (it makes me wonder if her former owner put clothes on 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 (not typical for these parts). At night, especially if it's raining, Ella will run from us when we try to get her to go outdoors to use the potty. Fortunately she's small enough to pick up and carry outside. Now we put her coat on and I think it helps keep her a little warmer. When she curls up to go to sleep at night, we sometimes put a towel over her, which she seems to like.
Doesn't this sweater look smart on her! My husband picked it out, and it was 50% off (only $9 -- what a bargain!).
Over the holiday weekend we all went for a walk along the greenway. It was a cold, windy day, but sunny. Before long, we were toasty warm from our brisk walk. Above are Ella, Henry and Phoebe posing for a photo with their 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?
