"This is Jessie, our lovely four-year-old Norwegian Elkhound howling for the camera. She loves running in the woods and chasing mice and whatever else she can! She is very affectionate and loves to be petted. She is very obedient and you never have to repeat a command to her. She howls loudly to say hello to everyone that calls to visit! She gets on well with other dogs including her sister Casey the Golden Retriever although it's clear that she is the boss!!"
