Miles and his brother Tater were reunited after 12+ months of not seeing each other.
They seemed to remember each other and played as though they had never been separated. So many of the same likes/preferences and mannerisms, so many similar expressions. And they can both fit 2+ tennis balls in their mouths!
You can see that Tater’s hair is longer and he is a bit taller than Miles, though Miles is more “filled out” than Tater.
They are both smart dogs who have responded well to training. They are both very affectionate with humans and other animals, though Tater is more submissive than Miles is. He displayed typical submissive behavior of licking Miles’ mouth and ears and deferring to Miles initiating play.
It’s so hard to believe these ~75 pound dogs were 1/10th of that when we met them:
Just for fun, here are a few more pictures of them playing. A couple of these include Caryn’s other dog, Rutzie. The way she was playing that day, no one would guess that sweet girl is going to be 11 next month!
