It is amazing what energy the young have. This time of year when the days are short and chilly I would really like to hibernate. But life seems too short to sleep through it and there is so much I want to do...
Pictured is Ellie taking a break from playing with her siblings. Of the eleven pups in her litter she is the most determined to have her way, she isn't pushy, just persistent but only with other dogs, she is a complete pushover with people. After a hard day of taunting the other dogs there is nothing she likes better than to cuddle with anyone who will have her. Soon she will be going to her new home in Germany so when next I visit she will be half a world away training her new people just like a good princess.
