He was rescued from the SPCA via the Pound and now lives happily, albiet destructively, with our old Maremma, Nelson.
Is he still a puppy or full grown? He has so much of a "puppy" face... what a sweet-pea! How do you pronounce his name though? Dah-Lay? Dah-Lye?

In any case, I think he is so squishably adorable!

Grumblebee...he is a pup, around 10 months old we think.

We named him after the the Dalai Lama and Nelson was named after Nelson Mandela! His name is pronounced Dah lye.

Ahhh!! Yes indeed!! I have seen one of them at a pecorino factory near Umbria!! This guy was very very old, but he was so sweet, and I bet he loved cheeses, too, considering where he lived!! He was the only Pastore Abruzzese I have ever seen in my life, I believe it is quite a rare breed, I can't understand how he ended up in a pound, such a beautiful, sweet boy with such a lineage!! But I see it turned out for all the best, look what a wonderful home and family he has found!!
Dalai and Nelson, I love the names, too!!

Edited to add: The pic is resized so those who with smaller monitors can also see him fully immediately!!

Wasabi and Lynan,

I can't believe I missed these pics. I've seen Dalai before and think he looks so elegant.

Your chihuahua is adorable, Wasabi.
