happy valentine's day...



Ella wanted to wish you a very
Happy Valentine's Day

She thought maybe you might like one of her organic Paul Newman heart-shaped puppy cookies.....



Are you sure?  Ella says they are deeeelicious.



No?... well okay then,  she'll have one for you in your honor!


Ella sends a wiggle and a wag, and we both wish you a
Happy Valentine's Day!!

xoxo



post script:
I've received several inquiries about Ella's red velvet collar and her heart charm, so I thought I would add the information here...
Her red velvet collar is from Isabella Cane.  Ella has several of their collars and they are absolutely gorgeous! 
Ella's sterling heart-shaped charm was her sister Kelsey's charm (they never met, but they are still "sisters").  "Kelsey" is engraved in the dog bone on the front and on the back it says
"Rescued 9-11-93"
I ordered it from a funky little shop, Nuvo, on Cedar Springs in Dallas.  I tried to get one for Ella before we moved, but they no longer showcased this same jewelry designer. 
Ella wears it in memory of our other sweet puppy girl, Kelsey!

  2. Ella is precious! Those little dog snacks are so cute...my spoiled dogs will only eat dog snacks if they have peanut butter on them. They are like kids!

    Happy Valentine's Day to you and Ella!

    XO,

  17. Bailey has those treats, too, but you must have Ella trained not to grab them and choke them down. No way could I get a picture of Bailey's.
    Have a great Valentine's day.

  18. Ahhh - Ella is such a sweetie I can tell. I love the idea of homemake treats for our pups also. Glad you reminded me I need to make some!! I did Christmas tree treats for our pups to give out as gifts. I want to make your Paul Newman ones. http://justspiffit.com/2011/12/23/gift-giving-at-christmas-time/ ‎
    Happy Valentines Day to you!

  20. Joan,
    Please extend my appreciation to Ella for being so willing to share...we are trying to teach Madison (or terrier mix) to share her biscuits with her big sister (bear mix :-)). She doesn't seem to understand.
    Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours.

  24. Now I may be wrong, but I have a feeling that if I reached for the cookie Ella may have beaten me to it. Who could resist those eyes!

    Wishing you a love filled Valentine's Day.

  33. When I was a kid, we thought it was fun to nibble on dog biscuits, and they probably weren't nearly as good as the Paul Newman variety. Thank Ella for her generous offer! And happy Valentine's Day to all of you there in your well-loved house.

  38. Ella loves hearing all of your sweet comments! And, she wanted me to tell you that she would have sat there with those cookies all day if I had told her to! As her Mum, I can say that she really would have too! She's very good and very well trained!!

    I received several inquiries as to Ella's red velvet collar and her sterling charm, so I've added that information to the post.

    happy valentine's day!! xoxoj.

  42. Happy Valentine's Day to you Ella and Joan and Dan. True story; I was eating a piece of Newman's Own Organic espresso dark chocolate when I opened this blog. I didn't offer to share my treat with anyone though (Mike had already left for work; my justification!). Cindy

  44. Aww. Ella is just adorable. How sweet her face is! I miss my girl Libby. She passed away in October while my husband was serving in Afghanistan. She was our almost 10 year old golden retriever, and my 5 yr old son's "sweet girl" and best friend.
    Give Ella a BIG squeeze for us! Sorry, didn't mean to bring down the mood. Just reminded of her when I saw Ella's soulful eyes! :-)
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  56. Such a beautiful shot of Ella! I live in Dallas and Nuvo is STILL going STRONG! They do have a great mix of fun stuff there! Wish they still carried the product line for the charms! Thank you for opening your home and heart to rescue animals. As a long-time animal rescuer I wish I could clone you a million times over. Such great need!

  59. Ella is so sweet! It looks like she had a lovely Valentine's Day. :) I have looked for a post on your blog incase you wrote about the question I'm going to ask.. how do you care for your antique rugs? I have a few that are rather worn down(that I love the most becase it gives them so much charicter)! I was told by the lady I got them from to clean them my placing them on fresh snow and to step on them to release dirt! But I'm not so sure that is true?!
