After we picked them up from the transport, they needed a bath in the worst way. There had been a half dozen puppies on the transport, so while most of the dogs were potty trained... they all wound up smelling like the puppies. Stink-a-roo!
Jeff and the boys changed into their swim trunks and took the dogs to the front yard. Frack went first, because he was closer when Jeff made a grab for him. He'd been so accustomed to bathing Rogue -who had a get-this-oevr-with-quick temperment about bathtime - he'd forgotten that you have to wash a dog's head last. They'll be as calm as they can until you spray water on their face!
Frick was much more understanding about it...probably because he'd seen his brother do it and we'd figured out some of the how-to's.
Not sure they're looking forward to doing it again!

While we explained who we were, the boys headed straight for their dogs. Their markings, and the fact that they were together, made them easy to spot. A dog approached each boy, and the rest was history. Hayden & Frack bonded from the first, just like Bayley & Frick.
They fit right in with our family...they can't sit still for a family photo attempt either!
And as you can imagine...we couldn't leave them with the foster. She's lovely, but they were just so sweet and started to cry when they were put in a dog run. And we're suckers. Totally. The boys swore up and down that they would take care of them while we were gone...but it wasn't until Pop Pop gave the go-ahead that the decision was made. Frick & Frack came home to stay.

Is this a contender for awkward family photo or what?

We'd had such a good experience rescuing Rogue, we were really committed to rescuing again. The boys agreed, so we decided to wait for the right animals to come along.
When I saw a pair of Great Pyranees on Petfinder, I thought they were too cute to pass up. Frick & Frack charmed Jeff too, so we investigated the breed and decided to apply for them. They are in Texas now, making their way to us soon.
We have some options for those who care to weigh in ::
Stryker & Blaze
Fritz & Max
Samson & Bandit
Fennway & Calloway (Fenn & Cal)
Sabre & Parry
Baron & Ranger
Deschutes & Cascade (Shooter & Cade)
