treats everywhere

So if you follow me on instagram, you already know that joe and i brought home this sweet little pup home two weeks ago. Little Ellie is a Blue Merle Australian Shepard and she has been such a doll to have around, albeit she has had two accidents inside the house (we're getting there though!). 

She is a complete ball of energy, as many Aussies are. Some days when she's cooped up in her crate for 7-8 hours, we come home and take her on long evening walks so she gets active. The nice thing is that she has an "off" switch -- if we need to do our own thing and leave her alone, she tends to fall asleep or minds her own business until we want to pay attention to her. 

As any puppy, she is in her nippy/teething stage but Joe and I hope to nip that in the butt soon - hopefully when her puppy school starts! She's learned how to sit and come when called though sometimes when she is just too pumped she won't pay attention. Or she sees you pull a treat and she just sits right down since she knows what comes next. What a little ham! 

So now our house is filled with puppy treats, poop bags (sorry) and little toys. I've been noticing we have treats in all the little nooks and crannies of our house - even in the car! Lucky for Wiz, Ellie has some awesome salmon treats that we found her stealing right out of the bag.
