Introducing: Elsie


We found Elsie on July 2nd 2005, when we were up and about in the middle of the night because Estella had to catch a shuttle to the airport. Skin and bones, tick ridden and more dead than alive, she was in no time my very favorite. Gosh, how crazy can you be about a doggie!

She has obviously suffered a lot in peoples hands: her tail has been cut and she has a protuding rib where somebody kicked her and healed wrongly, so she is weary and does not like to be touched much, but she is strong and proud in her unique way and despite being the smallest, she is the alpha female of the pack.


She is an old doggie now, about ten, I guess, funny and stuborn as they come and so beloved as a child.
