The newest addition to the Miller fam
So, I initially wanted a yorkie, and what did we get? A rottweiler.=) Everyone, this is Ellen. She is so stinkin' great. Eric and I talked for months about what kind of dog to get. We just couldn't decide! We finally decided on a rottweiler for a couple reasons. One, with Eric being gone quite a bit, we wanted a dog that would look intimidating, but not necessarily bite everyone's head off that walked in the house. Two, rottweilers, despite their bad rep, they are wonderful family dogs. They are extremely loyal and very intelligent. Both of these traits have been proved with Ellen. A thirdly, we just think rottweilers look stinkin' awesome.=)
She is so smart, and extremely loveable. I think the thing we enjoy most about her right now, is how lazy she is.=) She has her puppy energy, but doesn't tear through the house like a mini tornado. She loves to sit for hours on the kitchen floor with her bone and just chill. She has even at times to be completely sprawled out on the kitchen floor, then attempting to just tilt her head over the side of her water bowl in order to drink rather just getting up and drinking like any regular dog. She makes us laugh. Here are a few pictures over the past couple months.
This is the day we brought her home. She was just 8 weeks old and already HUGE!
