"If providence did beards devise,
To prove the wearers of them wise,
A fulsome goat would then, by nature,
Excel each other human creature." - Thomas D'Urfey

Runway, Lights, Please!

This is Ella...well, really Ellyl. She is an alpine that lives with us. I have had to think long and hard about Ella. She is sort of the supermodel type - all long legs, beautiful, pushy, and, as so often happens in these cases, lacking the brains to go along with it. When it comes to food and attention, just like the supermodel, Ella wants it ALL! I hate her metabolism. Alas, philosophically speaking, she is the Cadillac while I am the Volkswagen.

hmmmm ella really is beautiful. Ya know, I am supposed to be a flock and cattle guard dog. Maybe if I had a pretty lil Ella to guard, I might actually figure it out! Naw, that would impress the dogmother too much. Can't do that!
