Meet beautiful Ellie. She’s around seven years old, adopted in January of 2016. Her mom told me, “…I never believed in love at first sight until I saw our Ellie!” Ellie was rescued with 147 other dogs in the worst of conditions. She faced a multitude of issues, but she’d found the right family. She’s cared for in all the ways she needs, and she brings absolute joy to her family. She’s come a very long way.

So remember when I said we'd list one item each day for 30% off for the next week? Well, I lied. Along with the Golden Gate collar being on sale today, I've also added these two bandanas! The Santa's Crew and Mesmerizing MistleToe bandanas are now starting at just $15.37 CAD for today only!!
Until we adopted a dog, we didn't know a thing like thunder phobia exists. Donna would be so over-came by fear she would be trembling and salivating uncontrollably. She would pace around and climb things looking for an avenue to escape the flat and the thunder. She would loose control of her bowels and pee on the spot. She didn't have the presence of mind to even make it to the pee tray.
Weather is unpredictable making thunder phobia one of the hardest condition to counter-condition and rehabilitate. It was very stressful for us too. The alarm couldn't wake me up but I developed a super hearing ability that just the slightest grumble in the sky will see me jumping out of bed in the middle of the night.
Super thankful that after all the hardwork our girl is now ok with the thunder even when the balcony doors are opened and we are 23 floors high in the sky in the middle of a thundering shower. (It's captured in my IG stories you can go see)
I continue to be hopeful that she will improve outdoors too.

A big thank you to the kind folks at @myollie for inviting me to their Pupsgiving Gathering- Wags, Wheels, and Waffles! 😁As you can guess, there were plenty of adorable dogs, including @maedayrescue @apurposefulrescue dogs looking for their furever homes, cool cars by @autoconduct and Waffles! My friends @amazinggraciedoodle @charlie_dog_in_la and I had a great time and enjoyed our Ollie treats! I think we might also have a future as car models! 😉 #arnedoodle
