Happy Birthday Eli!!!! - 11/17/17 06:37 PM

Tomorrow my little Eli turns 11 years old!!! Here's a picture I took this morning of him. Please ignore the mess, I let Kody have a box last night that he got to destroy and hadn't yet picked up the mess.

I know this will be his last birthday as his DM is progressing but I took him to the pet store and he picked out his own presents (funny how they can find the BIGGEST things at the store smile ).

Thanks all for the birthday wishes. It was just ten years and ten months ago I was picking up the little guy. I can't say for sure what I ate yesterday but I can give you every single detail of that day so many years ago. I didn't care how big he got (and he got BIG) but he has always been my little man. Such a wonderful soul.

He picked out the presents and he's not going to share with anyone. The other pups have plenty and I picked them up things as well, but those big treats are Eli's and Eli's alone.

(late) Happy Birthday EliDog!

He has such a very sweet face. You have said Eli is your little man-but how BIG did he get? (part of the reason I'm asking is that Mars came to us as a skinny boy and now is a well conditioned 95 lb).

all the best to the Rosa family,

MJ
