Eli the Wonder Pup

Waiting for sunrise on Lapham Ledge, Woodstock, Maine

More: Eli is special for many reasons, but the one people notice first is that he was born without a tail. (I tell everyone my son got him from the breeder at a discount, which is true!) He may not be the most obedient or well-trained dog in the world, but he’s certainly one of the friendliest and most good-natured. And he’s always ready for a hike with his Gramma!
