The AP pet of the month series continues with the newest member of the Cresswell clan, Ellie the Scottie dog.  This cute Scotts-woman has an iconic silhouette with short legs, a long beard, and a tail and ears that stand at attention.

Scotties are so much more than a monopoly piece!  The AKC describes the breed as “A solidly compact dog of vivid personality, the Scottish Terrier is an independent, confident companion of high spirits. Scotties have a dignified, almost-human character.”

NAME → Ellie Cresswell

NICKNAMES → Jelly Belly

AGE/BDAY → 2 years old.  I’m a Halloween baby!!

BREED → Scottish Terrier, but Mom calls me a Scottish Terrorist 

HOBBIES → Destroying toys, killing lizards, hunting moles by digging up their tunnels in my yard.  And barking at everyone who goes by my house.

BAD HABITS → According to Mom: Destroying toys, killing lizards, hunting moles by digging up their tunnels in her yard.  And barking.  I don’t know what her problem is.

FAVORITE FOOD → Grandma’s food, or Rosey’s food or Owen’s food. 

FAVORITE PLACE IN AP → I love ALL of AP, but I guess I like it best on the porch where I can comfortably watch for lizards and moles while destroying a toy.

PET PEEVES → Bees 🐝 .  And the fact that lizards sometimes lose their tails and I’m left with just the tail.  Totally unfair.

SCARED OF → I’m a HUGE dog and I’m not scared of anything.  But other dogs can be afraid of the dark and I empathize a lot.

KNOWN ASSOCIATES/ENEMIES →. Rosey is my favorite chair cushion and BFF.   We play a lot.  She helps me …  make that I help her … not be afraid of the dark.  

ONCE UPON A TIME  → Once upon a time, I lived in a nice, quiet house in Milwaukee with a very nice, quiet man.   When he went to the Rainbow Bridge, I came to AP, which is now my very favorite place to be in the whole world.   Say Hi when you walk by and I’ll bark even louder!!
