Hi Kathleen,

Ellie is now 5 months old and weighs 37 pounds. She’s such a smart, outgoing, and confident girl. Last weekend she graduated from puppy obedience class – the hardest part was getting her picture in the hat (she’s not a fan of hats).

Ellie and Franklin are great buddies. On Thanksgiving, Ellie met my parents’ 2 Basset hounds and my brother’s Boxer. She had a great time running and playing, and got a ton of snuggles from the relatives. I’m so thankful for you and people like you who open up your hearts and homes to foster dogs like Ellie until they’re adopted!

I hope you and your family have a great holiday season.

With thanks,
