today eli turns 7. he's a good boy.
he had a big weekend. this photo is a reenactment of what happened.
he was off-leash on a quiet mountain road around 11AM. all of a sudden, he bounded down the side of the hill off the road, ears up. there were two tiny bear cubs and a giant mama bear.
the bear cubs scooted up the tree, the mama bear held her ground.
eli got within a foot or two of the mama.
the 4 people on the road started screaming "ELI! ELI! ELI COME! COME! COME HERE ELI!"
eli turned around and came back. we kept walking. we were 15 feet from the bears. it was freakin crazy.
