I consider any being that experiences emotions to be a person, even if they are not Human… but on the flip side I consider any being that does not experience emotion not to be a person, even if they are Human. Enter Ellie, Ellie is a Dachshund Dapple with beautiful eyes, and a wonderfully playful energetic personality, Ellie is one of the greatest people I know. In this photo Ellie is mournfully staring at the door, waiting for her loved owners to come home… you see last weekend I babysat Ellie while her parents went to a wedding all the way in another state, and Ellie missed them terribly. To see and understand her emotions were heart wrenching, but I was glad and honored to have been there with her, and I know when her parents came home, she was ecstatic!!!!
