My Ella is often the butt of jokes around these parts. With a vastly different personality to the tribe of trim, active, working Border Collies with whom she shares a home, an overweight Rottweiler is an easy target.
With Matthew's old workhorse Nissan spending the week off the road, he returned home this afternoon in an electric blue hire car. Ella, my loyal protector, rushed to investigate.
Instantly mesmerised by her own reflection, all natural instincts to protect her family were overcome by the need to impress this new Rottweiler.
Which fairly quickly became a battle of wits,
her reflection responding in much the same manner.
The Brynne Edelsten of the Rottweiler world.
I think she's still out there.
