“I pretty much knew at that moment that I wanted her.
That was in August and I picked her up a month later.
Ellie has been great for my parents and me.
It’s a new life in our house.
I think it’s good to keep busy when you are grieving.
Before I got Ellie, I was just alone, thinking about my sister all the time.
Ellie is a responsibility so she has helped me get out of my house physically, as well as my head emotionally.”
