All in the Family
Riley Quincey Chloe Chloe's Pups


Labrador Retriever / Mixed

Eli was our first dog we ever owned as a family. And we're not sure if he was pure bred because the lady didn't know who the dad was. We weren't really looking into getting a dog but my sister Megan really wanted a puppy. At the time I was terrified of dogs after being nipped at my by friend's dogs. We were coming out if the mall and walking to our car when a lady with a puppy in the back seat was sitting at the curb with her windows down, she also has the mother dog with her. My sister wanting a puppy said "Awww Daddy, look! A puppy.. That's the kind of puppy I want dad." The lady overhearing Megan asked if we wanted him, for FREE. She said He was the last of the litter so she was just going to take him and the mother to the animal shelter. My dad is a softy so he said, fine we'll take him. I was literally sobbing I hated dogs and I was scared of him, he was big. Over the years I got used to having a dog and I grew to love Eli, this was also when our cousin's had their first golden named Amos. Eli was getting pretty old and started to get sick, but we didn't really think anything about it. One day it just exploded from him and we knew we had to say goodbye to our gentle giant. He had tumors in his brain and he was in pain, He couldn't control himself anymore. My dad went alone to put him down knowing that Megan wouldn't be able to stand there and watch her puppy be put to sleep. My dad said that was the hardest thing he ever had to do. He felt like he was loosing a child. We lost our best friend that day, but we'll never loose all the memories we made with Eli. A week later we won a trip to Florida, it was fun but all we could think about was Eli. When we got back, the house was just so quiet it wasn't the same. A year later we got another dog... (:

Soooooooooo sorry about Eli! It looks like he never left except if he wanted to go walk around and sniff things. He looks like a trailer always following people around, keeping them company, and best of all doing his job, being man's best friend! R.I.P!
