Pidi The-Lava-Dog was abandoned at the end of highway 130 near Kalapana over a year ago. He lived day & night around the trailhead of the lava viewing area. Vendors and County workers would bring food to this shy dog. As the months went by Pedi slowly became more at ease with us and would allow us to pat him.
Kimball Trump, a vendor selling his blown & formed glass creations had is own new puppy, Chillbone, named after his music group. Kimball said he felt bad about Pidi living out on that lava flow and eventually started taking Pidi home with him and Chillbone. Here's a shot of Pidi hanging around the vendor stalls before Kimball adopted him:
On Christmas Eve Pidi arrived to the viewing area vendor parking spots with his new family - wearing a Santa hat.
Here is is the family portrait of the three:
