New home

Ella is no longer a puppy:( She has slowly turned into a dog. With that, I thought the crate was seeming a little small for her to be spending her days in...

So after checking out a lot of options, I decided to go with a surround gate. For now it is in my bedroom (no shared wall), but maybe downstairs might be better.

I made her a new bed.

I will keep her crate in there to start, as that is the only thing she has known for 6 months. I will move it out once she gets used to the new space.

With over 4x the space, I think she is going to like it.

Ella is not a puppy anymore...

I have a problem...

I think I have a problem here.

Really - my favorite ball went down the stairs.

Maybe if I stare at it a bit, it will bounce back up with me.

It's not moving - please help...

Lake Calhoun

What a beautiful day in Minnesota!! Ella and I got so much done today - we dropped bagged of old papers to be shredded at the recycling center, washed windows, killed box-elder bugs, bath and a walk around Lake Calhoun. Here are some pictures from our walk:
Ella was read to get going
The water was calm and there were a few people out on the water.
The leaves are starting to change and Ella like playing with them.

While the water looked inviting, Ella knew it was probably cold and didn't try to go in.

It was a great walk!

We came home ready for a nap and later on a bath. ( don't know why this is sideways)

A new friend

Many of Ella's favorite toys are bigger than she is. Today I found this at Kohl's for $2.50 - an instant new friend.
