I started Ask Away because...
My whole life I have always been able to take a neutral standpoint on any topic to give my input. Because of this, everyone knew or had heard that I was a great person to come to for advice, so I often had girlfriends coming to me with relationship issues. Everyone always said "Ellen, you should start an advice column!" So...one day I did..in the form of this blog!
What I blog about...

This is my beloved 2006 Honda Civic.
This is my boyfriend James.
And these are my dogs.
Pixie is my special girl. She was the first Chihuahua I ever got, back in 2005. I picked her out when I was just 19. I waited for weeks until she was old enough for the breeder to let her go. She was so tiny. I adored her. I took her everywhere with me. In 2007, Pixie was stolen during a home burglary, and I was devastated. It made the news, TV, radio, and newspaper. I didn't give up and after 5 days, Pixie was recovered by police after a shoot out!! Crazy story huh? It's true!! And Pixie is unfazed by it all. I blogged about her ordeal here. She loves everyone and is the happiest dog ever!
After I got Pixie back, I realized I should probably get another Chihuahua in case anything ever happened to Pixie again. Plus, dogs love company. So I picked out Grace in 2007 from a breeder. She is my little sidekick. She's uncomfortable sometimes around other people but she is always at my side. Anything I ask of her, she will do! She is a very obedient little girl and she graduated from Training Class in 2009! :)
Oh, Sweet Stella. Stella came to me from a personal friend and breeder in 2010. She has an amazing temperament and is just the sweetest thing. I love bathing her because I get to blow dry her hair and give her "blow outs". She looks so pouffy! LOL! Stella loves to be carried, held, and loved!
Oh Rocky, my first boy ever. Rocky was born in 2004 but I didn't get him till 2012. He ran away from home and my mom found him. Of all breeds to find, a Chihuahua! I took him in, and once we found the owners, they notified us that they were elderly and Rocky was getting to be a lot for them. So I adopted him! He is so sweet and kind. Very obedient too!
