Golden Eye’s Sunrise Miss Ellie was her name. We brought her home just days following our yellow lab, Roxy’s death. I brought Ellie home thinking she would have to earn her keep as I wasn’t fond of her puppy ways. She did just that and became a weak spot in my heart. She was always so happy to see you when you arrived home. Those golden eyes sparkled when she looked at you. I’ll miss my dear friend. She was so loyal to me and loved to go on runs alongside me. She loved to roam our countryside. She was so good with our children. She loved to lick your hands to make sure you didn’t forget to pet her. She was the perfect furry family friend. She was a good momma. She was beautiful. I’ll miss you dear friend. I tried everything I could to help you. You will rest in peace and no longer be in pain. This will be my way of letting you go for now, until I will be able to grab you in my arms when we meet again.
These are when we brought her home for the first time. I told her she had to earn her place at our home because she had some big shoes to fill.

I got so mad at Ellie because she wouldn’t sit by me when I was trying to take this self portrait that in the end I just threw up my hands and gave up!
She was my best furry friend.
She was also a good momma to two litters of puppies!
We love you Ellie and we miss you already! It’s not the same here without you!
