to start your week off with a smile...



Ella's a mighty fine driver!




This photo always makes me laugh-  I save it as my screen saver on those days when I need some extra humor in my life!

Make it a good week!

My dog does this every time we're in the car. I had to get a wagon with a built in dog gate recently. Before that my drivers seat was always covered in fur when I stepped out, never fail!

Cris Angsten said...

My big Shepherd mix, Cookie, does that. She also rides in the passenger seat like a person, it amuses everyone while we are out running errands together!

Well that certainly made me smile.
Thanks Joan. You have a great week as well. I was out and about this weekend and laughed every time I saw a wreath on a door (so that was a lot of laughing). Only in New England!!

Ella looks like she's in charge there. So cute.

Cath said...

LOL, and she knows where to shop too! What a gal.

Kristel said...

This also made me smile, such a sweet dog you have there, and she drives...wohoo!

So cute! I bet people were walking by looking and wondering. Ha!

Pamela Gordon said...

Ah, cute photo. As soon as I leave the car Marshall sits in the driver's seat waiting for me. Have a great week!

Dylan dog likes to drive too and even leans on the steering wheel with his paws until the truck beeps at him. Otherwise it's in his seat with the seatbelt on!

I love that girl!

Two Vintage Sisters - Robin and Pam said...

I really enjoyed this, as it looks a lot like my dog Sugar, and a lot like my car! Thanks! Robin

Dana said...

I love seeing dogs drive cars :-) Great profile!

the gardener's cottage said...

Blondie's Journal said...

Ella is a doll! She is probably a better driver than most out there! :)

XO,

I didn't realize Ella was sixteen! After watching news coverage of the high school shooting here in N.E. Ohio this morning, this made my day. Thank you, Joan and Ella.

So sweet. We had a toy poodle for 17 1/2 years. One day I was bringing her home from the groomer and stopped to drop a movie into the drop box. Got out of the car, was dropping the movie in the box and heard a CLICK!! She had locked the door!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had to call my hubby at work, to come and let me into my car:):) Thanks for the smile and the memory. XO, Pinky

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Ella is so darn cute, and talented, I might add!

Victoria said...

Ella's a riot. Bella has to sit in the back seat, because she sheds too much...and I don't think she meets the height requirement to sit in the front.
Best...Victoria

Very cute.

Mary, Ontario, Canada said...

....our white boxer does this too! Every time I get out, she moves over to the driver's seat. So many people have commented on how cute it is.

maggie@septemberrust said...

Soo cute, Ella is a love!

Donna in Potomac said...

Horsepower? Dogpower!
4-wheel drive? 4-footed drive!

I don't have a dog, but my cat's favorite seat was the dashboard - front-seat-driver!

Cindy said...

Joan, Dan, and Ella: Precious; Cindy. P.S.: Ella has great taste in her shopping...well trained! Cindy

Hi Joan,
That's the wonderful thing about animals - they can always put a smile on our face!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

I'd say she's doggone good at it!

Jill said...

I really can't tell you how much I love this! It made me smile:)

vignette design said...

Ella is an excellent driver!

Barbara Bussey {The Treasured Home} said...

Our collie is the only dog I know that doesn't jump willingly into the car for a ride. He has to be coaxed, prodded and with a boost from the rear. Rediculous! Ella's got it together!

much older sister Susan said...

Why is everyone calling Ella a dog??? She is a little girl in a puppy coat!

A-M said...

Oh she's gorgeous! A-M xx

sécia said...

PURA VIDA said...

What a laugh

mollie's mom said...

We need more drivers like Ella in ATL!!! Have you experienced our trafiic ??
Thanx for a great laugh - love it. Marcie

Samantha said...

What a stylish dog, so clever.x

Anonymous said...

She is patiently waiting to head to the store for the yummy Valentine treats you bestow upon her...! Soooo sweet.

Dianne said...

I needed Ella to start this week. We had a rough weekend. Thanks so much!

Michelle @ A COTTAGE REVIVAL said...

Cute! Does she jump to the back when she spots you coming? We have a new dog(Gus)and he sits in the driver's seat until he see's us, then darts to the very back as if to say "nothing going on here". Michelle

Gina said...

Haha, that is so funny. Looks like she is driving! :)

Karen said...

What a fun picture...Ella looks very capable behind the wheel! :-)

suze said...

Love that picture. At least she isn't texting!!!Love your blog-it's beautiful!!

Ideezine said...

Dogs in cars would make a wonderful book for lots of us. Such a cute subject!

Mallory said...

I stumbled upon your blog...and I can't tell you how happy I am that I did! My fiance and I up and moved from Southern California to Northeast KANSAS in less than 3 weeks(we're crazy, I've already told him if we ever move again, minimum move time of a month is needed!)! Northeast Kansas, contrary to popular belief, is very heavily wooded and hilly. And like you, we have truly enjoyed the beauty of fall, a season we had never really LIVED in before, it's now my absolute favorite season. And the people are genuine. So kind a friendly, I never want to go back to living somewhere that does not feel like HOME. I think you and I feel the same things about our new adopted states.
I went ALL the way back and read from the beginning, and I have fallen in love with how you have made your house a home. I look forward to keeping up with you and your home, and your sweet Ella. We also have a rescue dog, Deuce, who was a Daddy's girl before I came along, but we have won each other's hearts, and she makes my heart happy.
Best to you,
And thank you,
Mallory

Susan said...

Adorable!

Puppy Lulu would love to do this, but gets horribly car sick. Any advice from your wonderful readers gratefully accepted Joan.
