Yoga time for Ellie.

Always at my feet, or under my feet.  When I sit down, she’s jumping up to sit on my lap.  When I go to bed, she’s waiting for me to hoist her up so she can snuggle into the covers too.  When I roll out my mat for a little at home yoga, she’s on it before I am, showing me what a downward dog really is.

Her name is Ellie.

She is one of three dogs that own me. (yes, you read that right – they own me.)  Ellie is the smallest of our pooches – but don’t tell her that.

She is little, she is loud.  She is always ready to give you a kiss, especially if you don’t want it….or don’t think you want it.  Ellie will change your mind.

Her favourite place is in the arms of whoever is willing to carry her around.

She’s overbearing.  She’s cute as hell.  She drives me crazy.  She’s the best afternoon nap buddy in the world.

She’s 9 pounds of pure personality and a force to be reckoned with.

And she teaches me little somethings about myself each and every day.

She’s my sidekick.  A persistent, pesky, adorable, sidekick. curved

Namaste – and Happy International Yoga Day too!

-Janice 🙂

  1. Haha! I love that photo! I have to do regular stretches involving lying on my back just to stop my back hurting. Every now and again my cat comes and lies on his back right next to me with his legs in the air and a look on his face of “Why are we doing this?!”

    1. haha – that’s awesome! Have you seen the video collection of pets interrupting their humans during yoga? Hilarious! I am so tempted to go and buy Ellie her own yoga mat, but I don’t think she’ll get the hint. :/ Glad you liked my post, thanks for commenting! 🙂
