Elle Woods: Legally Black
by Blair Bennett
Hi my name is Ellie! My mom named me after Elle Woods, because she is in law school. I am a four month old miniature schnauzer. I just had my first Christmas and Santa brought me this toy. I am a sassy little princess, but what southern girl isn't? I'm a sweetheart, though.
My mom is my best friend, but I have a big family! I have lots of cousins of all different shapes and sizes. Our play dates are never boring! Sometimes I forget how little I am and try to bully my big cousins. Walking is too conventional, so I hop like a bunny everywhere I go. My favorite is to go for walks at the park. I hop the whole way! I have a lot of energy so I really thrive hopping around at the park.
I have too many toys to pick a favorite, but I love to play fetch with my ball. I always bring it back, but sometimes I won't let mom have it. Tug-of-war is just too much fun! I have recently discovered riding in the car with the windows down. If you have never done it, it is really worth trying. The breeze in my beard is a great feeling, and I like to bark at the other cars as they go by. My ears fly up, and mom calls me batdog.
Mom takes away all the fun things I find to chew on, but I can't really complain. I have a pretty good life here below the Mason Dixon line!
