Woo Woo aka Ellie .........




This is my neighbor's dog Ellie. When she barks she goes woo woo, so that's what I have always called her. She lives directly across the road that goes beside my house. so she can lie on her porch and watch my back yard. Whenever she sees me in the backyard, she comes over to visit.

We have a regular routine that we follow. She comes up on my back deck and barks her "woo woo" a few times to let me know she is there. If I'm not already outside or don't hear her right away, she will lie down on the deck and wait until I see her. She is waiting for her treats. She always gets two Beggin' Strips first. Then, she gets either a sandwich left over from Hubbie's lunch or a biscuit. I hand it to her and tell her to go back home. Usually she will hold it in her mouth and take it back home before she eats it. Sometimes she eats it right away and begs for another. As you can see, I also keep a bucket of water on the deck in case she is thirsty after her walk over to my house.


My neighbor made the comment one day that Ellie had been putting on weight. I had to admit to feeding her when she came to visit. I do worry about her crossing the road though. I would feel terrible if a car hit her, so I try to keep an eye on her until she gets back home.


I miss my dogs - Black Jack and Charlie - that we lost a couple of years ago. Woo Woo has to fill in for them and receive my loving and spoiling.

Sweet that he has a second home and a second mom! Animals know quality people when they see them. :)

Ellie looks like a sweetie! She looks a little like a dog named Wags that became one of my best friends when I lived in Colorado. The dog belonged to a neighbor that I never met. Every evening when I got home from work, Wags would greet me and we would take walks through the beautiful rural area that I lived in. I think his owners were too busy to spend much time with him. I'll never forget him.

Carla,
My dog BlackJack used to always go across the road and great my neighbor when she got home from work. Woo Woo comes over whenever she sees someone outside.
