Ruff, Tuff and Buff
It's Max's 9 month birthday today (9 month-aversary?) today. It wasn't until I looked at these photos that I realized how muscular Pitou is.
He and Max may be two totally different breeds, but you can tell they go to the same gym.
(Note: Pitou is actually three totally different breeds: Jack Russell, Chihuahua and Dachshund)
They make a great sparring team. And even when Max is wrestling happily with another big dog at the park, Pitou is there acting like the ref; throwing in the odd bark, circling back and forth around two dogs that could take his head off with one bite. One of the park regulars calls him and other terriers "The Fun Police", but I think he's just making sure his big little brother is OK, ready and willing to lend a paw if it's needed.
