Ellie & Toby.
Enjoying some warm winter sun back in 2013.
Ellie looked up to Toby and shared many things with him.
I lost Ellie aged 14 she was a lovely caring girl who had a devilish streak in her teacher Toby had 5 years of naughtiness under his belt by the time Ellie arrived .
She only had eyes for me,other family members would tell her to do something and she would look straight at me to see if I agreed. 🤔🐕. Ellie would cuddle up to me each night as the family went to bed when we started to grow the 4 legged family and added Jake and Bracken she would guard me from unwanted attention in the evenings, I was her property.
Ellie would stare down any dog who dared to want my attention with the exception of one Toby !
she loved Toby and much to his disgust she cleaned his face every day 👅. In later life she would cuddle up to him, she would even wake him for dinner after going deaf by the age of 15yrs old.
she would go up to him as he slept and snort down her nose blowing air into his nose to waking him instantly.
The may not have spoke words but these two had a very good understanding of each other.
When Ellie sadly died I noticed him change he Wasn’t able to get around very quickly by that age, but I know he kept looking for her.😞
Ellie was certainly missed by both 2 and 4 legged friends.
she was the boss and the others new it.
She was sly too she would take puppies up the garden and give them a good biting out of my sight to show she meant business I caught her on several occasions doing this.
Hettie All got put in there place by Ellie.
But she guarded Toby from aggressive dogs in later life.
Farah filled her place After she died in by becoming my New Dominant female.
Toby died later that same year.
Reunited again and never forgotten. 💔
