Bringing home Eli

By 7:30 this morning Poppy and I were on our way to the farm in Micro to pick up our baby...







We have decided on the name "Eli". We tried calling him Roman and then Akita, but Eli seemed to fit just right. So Eli it is.  

Eli is seven weeks old and the first to leave the litter. He has an unbelievable personality, very different from the Labs we've raised. He is quiet and seems content, even in this new environment. He has not whined or acted like he misses his litter mates.


This has been a fun but tiring day. Oh, Eli has the cutest white eyelashes! Can you see them?

Eli lived with his family on a large beautiful farm. Their house sits in the middle of 30 acres and they board horses. Hope he will find happiness with us here in a tiny log cabin surrounded by  5 acres




Well friends, this post is not exactly how I want it but Poppy is tired and ready for lights out, so I will say good night! Thanks for visiting.

Love,
Henny Penny

    1. Thanks! Actually those are not Eli's parents. His Mother was up at the house and his Father belongs to a friend. One of those behind the fence is a Lab mix and the other a white Pyrenee. I didn't ask much about those two. We are excited to have Eli!

    1. Hey Terry! You're not old! Were they popular in the late 70's? I'm the old one! Eli is sweet! Everything we read say you must let these dogs know from the very beginning who is boss...I am not good at that! :)

    2. Dear Henny, I am behind, yes Three Dog Night popular in the early 1970s especially with a song called "Eli's Coming". I am so glad you have him, he will be a love and I bet your kitties will love him too! I can't wait to see what adventures you 3 will get into now! Stay tuned..Love Terry

    1. Mummy will pass every kiss on to Eli! :) " Eli" is much better than "Rambo", don't you think?

  6. He is about the cutest little/big guy I have ever seen. He will love living on your home. It is not want you own that makes a home it is the people that love you and take care of you. This dog will be so spoiled, happy and protect his family to the max.

    Love you, Vicki

  8. Eli is beautiful and I love his name. My brother has a grown version of Eli and has enjoyed how protective his dog is of the farm animals. I hope Eli brings you and Poppy lots of fun and happy times. :)

  9. He is a wonderful white fluffball, and is sure to bring you much happiness, and adventure! I bet you have had many dogs along the paths of your lives, and this guy certainly looks special. For the first year you will be his guide, teacher and protector. And then, it will be his honor to "take care" of you and your animals. I have a feeling he will be the subject of many blog postings! Congratulations!
