Ellie Claire has been full of beans all day. She is a beautiful adolescent, now, but holy crap, can this girl get into trouble. True, it’s only Puppy Trouble, but it gets me tearing my hair out. Every swing of her head has her popping something else forbidden into her mouth. Houseplants, cats, used tissues, shoes, socks, the list goes on.
I have been calling her Crazy Beans when she gets all wound up like this.
So, Orion and I took Ellie out for a walk around the backyard just now. I about had a heart attack. The snow is still 8 inches deep with a thick hard crust on it. So Ellie goes tripping along across the top, while Orion and I break through and have to plow our way on through. I was gasping for breath halfway through and Orion was looking at me like “Great idea.”
Anyway, we made it, but Ellie does not seem to have used up much of her overflowing energy. Dang, she is cute. 🙂
Chomping on sticks before the top of the snow froze up…
And, finally, angelic Ellie when she has finally run out of puppy energy!
