Ellie was the sweetest little sprite, full of joy and adventure. She loved napping in the car on long rides, her soft blue blanket, and any treat that smelled like cheese. Her sparkly brown eyes and small floppy ears made her look like a teddy bear, but she was strong, protective and loyal – always wanting to take care of her family, including her best friend and sister, Emma. She made every day more fun and was delightfully pushy, making sure you rubbed just the right spot on her tummy. She was spunky, determined, and adored, and we were lucky to be her family.
