Bella Bijou’s E Litter, Five Weeks


Jim and I met in 1974, in a group of mutual friends attending a Grateful Dead concert in Santa Barbara, California. We both grew up in Palo Alto, where Jim’s mother notoriously interviewed Jerry Garcia as a potential guitar teacher for Jim – and rejected him. There was no question that the puppies would be entertained this weekend with the televised “Fare Thee Well” reunion concerts celebrating fifty years of the Grateful Dead experience. They hung on every note, as the photo shows.

Our neighborhood was crazy with Fourth of July fireworks last night. We always host festivities at our home so we can keep our dogs company, a habit that matters to us most when we have puppies. Our adult dogs are all relaxed about fireworks and these puppies were as well, nursing quietly as they listened. I had the puppies out this afternoon when I heard distant thunder too, with a sprinkling of rain as we gathered them inside.

Fireworks, thunder, and a rock concert… an eventful weekend for the little “E”s.

    Carol, what a darling picture of the little “Rockers”. Elliot has become MY Rock, as we have had another tragedy. A memorial today and another on Sat. When I look at the photos, they calm my heart! Thank you.

    Another adorable litter! I’m still dreaming of a little Blue Mountain puppy. Just want to be sure the timing is right. :). Will there be a fall litter this year?
    I love your posts!!
