despite the rainy gross weather, elliott managed to coax harriet (who melts in the rain) into a fearsome game of biteyface this afternoon. i didn't get any shots of that, but i took some pictures of them enjoying their post-dinner nap. you can see elliott's white eyebrows, which didn't show up in his birthday picture. you can also see the weird, kinky texture of his tail hair.

I have got to delurk here for a moment...I can't remember, do you know what breed/mix Elliott is? My Trixie had the exact same type of hair on her tail. I used to say she looked like those "crimp and curl" Cabbage patch dolls, the hair was kind of like /\/\/\/\/\.

We never knew her mix, some kind of northern breed, from her curled tail and the roo-roos we got and the fuzzy little ears. I usually said Malamute mix when asked.
I have a pic here:

too bad it doesn't show her tail, but it's just like Elliott's!

i could be misremembering, but i think Matt has said that Rocky's tail hair is somewhat similar to elliott's kinky and soft. Trixie looks to me like she could've had some Aussie in her, with maybe some northern breed, like Malamute. whatever she was, she was a beautiful girl!

Perhaps it is a universal truth that the loss of Liberty at home is to be charged to provisions against danger, real or pretended, from abroad.

Harriet's got personality and is uber cute and all that, but I've always had a thing for Elliott. He's got that "please fondle my head look".
That picture really shows off his gorgeous brindle coloring well.
BTW,his tail is remarkably close to what the wild & weird hair on Luke's back looks like when wet. We call
it Luke's bad hair day,which is more often than not.

I used to like barbecue-flavored chips, but I have to stop liking them now because you're such a ***.

doesn't he just? he used to hate being fussed at, but he's gotten to where he really enjoys it. he gets the cutest "aw shucks" sleepy bear look on his face when you rub his head. and then he dances. there are few things cuter than a dancing brindle bear.

you should make little afro puffs along his back. HTH!

thanks! that's pandora, who will be 16yo next month. it's hard to believe she's been with me that long. she's as sassy as ever, too. this morning she was running turbo laps up and down the hallway, just for the sheer joy of it.
