Fridays With Ellie: Road-Tripping, Swimming, & Race Spectating!
What day is it?
What does that mean?
Our little monster has been living her best life these days. She’s been to Washington, D.C., where she got to hang out with her puppy cousin, Ranger, and took a road trip to New Hampshire, where she had so much fun with her human cousins, Tyler and Abby. Here’s a look inside her fabulous, hang-out-with-your-fang-out life lately.
Ellie enjoyed road-tripping to Washington, D.C., for a family wedding.
She got to spend lots of time playing with her puppy cousin, Ranger, who taught her how to go in and out of a doggy door, and she loved sleeping in a big king bed in the hotel.
We also put the windows down in the car for the first time (she’s buckled in with a car harness, because #safetyfirst and also #helicopterparenting), and she went wild for it. She loves feeling the breeze!
Ellie spent a long weekend visiting her Grammy and Pop-Pop in New Hampshire.
She loves my niece and nephew, Abby and Tyler, so much. Abby was unsure of Ellie on Day 1, but by Day 2, she was screaming at the bottom of the stairs (“Woof!!!”) to wake Ellie up so she could come down and play.
And Ellie adores Tyler. She just followed him everywhere he went, and he loved using her as a pillow.
Ellie went for her first swim!!!
I was so proud I cried actual tears. Is this normal human behavior?
Ellie was the best spectator ever at the Brooklyn Half!
I’ll tell ya, there’s nothing better than seeing your pup as you approach the finish line! Ellie liked playing in the sand at Coney Island (but she didn’t like the big waves!), and she loved seeing all the runners at the bar afterward.
She loves runners because they always stop to pet her, and she gets to lick their sweat. Anytime she sees a runner, no matter where we are, she perks up and her tail starts going crazy. That’s my girl.
She also traveled to Brooklyn to watch the Red Hook Crit!
Ellie learned to go up and down the stairs at my parents’ house, but she still refuses to jump in and out of the car.
Ellie continues to be a good dog who plays hard and naps hard.
And she continues to rock the hell out of that underbite.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
