Not a puppy anymore

Ellen will be 1 year in 5 days. Its crazy to think we got her at 8 weeks old and that she is close to being all grown up. She is so tall and is SO heavy! She weighs 73 lbs already... yeah, big girl. The picture below is no lie, 2.5 minutes after I handed her that soccer ball. Ripped to shreds and pulled out the inside lining. Thats my girl... there is no ball or object she can't destroy. It is literally her mission in life. She has gotten a lot better with digging in the backyard and no longer tears apart everything and anything. We are finally phasing out of that puppy teething stage. I love the top picture, she's such a pretty dog. She has been a great companion for me while Eric is gone. She is a joy and keeps me company. I feel a lot safer with her sleeping next to me under the bed. She is very protective and extremely loyal.
