We all have assistants of one variation or another. Today I want to tell you about my furry assistants.
Ellie and Gabby.
Ellie (pictured) is a shih-tzu/American Standard Terrier mix. She came to live with us in August after Zack crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Gabby is a black and white shih-tzu.
Ellie has an under bite that, according to one of my nieces, looks like she’s smiling all the time “but it’s kinda creepy too.” She’s a good guard dog and she’s really energetic. She’s around a year old.
Gabby is appropriately named. She’s a barker. She loves kids and is quite excitable. She can also be laid back and quiet. We don’t have to wonder if our doorbell works or not because she’ll let us know if anyone is there.
When I want to get any work done, I have to give them both plenty of attention before I get started. They also make sure I take plenty of breaks. Especially Gabby.
I have some people who help me out too. I’ll talk about them in another post. I might be referring to these two often, though, so I wanted you to “meet” them.
