Headshots of littermates Ella and Euka at six months old. These girls share personality traits and fight like sisters during their play dates. And yet, they differ in body structure.
Euka remains the petite beauty of the Ohio Four. Ella, Everett and Emma all sport a more robust build than our little girl. But all are, of course, gorgeous pups. They can't help it, you know; they were born with it.
Can you see the difference here in the faces of these two girls? Ella has the broader head and snooter, while Euka is composed of more delicate features.
We know good looks really aren't important in their preparations to be service dogs for Canine Companions for Independence. Being easy on the eyes is just a life bonus for these two.
Wilbur, the bull terrier from obedience class would agree with this. He trills a love warble for Ella like a love struck teenager. [sigh] Another star-crossed romance, the poor guy.
Be sure to check out our dog blog post on Going all out Diva style to help us choose some bling for our lovely girl. Euka has been around me long enough to know not to trust my fashion sense. She's counting on you for this one.
We're tallying up the suggestions and will announce the popular choice on April 21, 2013.
