We are all smiling today because tomorrow we leave for the Alps, Ellie included of course! It’s our first time taking her out of the U.K. (and my first time driving through the Eurotunnel). We’ll be meeting up with my partner’s family in Germany. Ellie will get to meet his two small nephews, which I’m excited about because Ellie is so great with kids and hopefully they’ll all become good friends. (Is there anything sweeter than a kid/dog friendship?) It’s been one holiday after another this summer - not that I’m complaining! - and I’m so happy that Ellie’s been able to come on all of them so far.
