Seeing Double, Twice

I don’t think there is any one reason, but it seems like I often see dog breeds in pairs. Some are litter mates, some find the same home through a rescue organization and others just happen to be at the park at the same time.  No matter how they

I don’t think there is any one reason, but it seems like I often see dog breeds in pairs. Some are litter mates, some find the same home through a rescue organization and others just happen to be at the park at the same time.  No matter how they end up together, these pup pairs usually make for a good photo.

I call this shot, “Pug of War”

In the offseason, these guys interviewed Eko about trying out for their sled dog team

And like a gentledog, Eko always lets the “Golden Girls” cool off first

In this case, dogs are kind of like poker – two of a kind is nice, but not very rare. Yesterday however,  life dealt me a hand I have never seen before. Four of a kind!

Double, Double Trouble!

No tricks, no dogs up my sleeve!  We saw these four ladies hanging out on our way back from the beach.  Not only that, but they were momentarily close enough for me to snap this photo

Four of a kind is definitely a record for me.   And I guess I can no longer post about my difficulties walking two dogs together.  Anyone else have a good story of seeing doggie duplicates?

    Did you make the sled team Eko? Wooooooowoooooooo!

  2. Steven,/ Buddy says:

    Will my crystal ball shows me and Buddy two dogs by your side, one younger then the other ? LOL
    Last time we went camping, Buddy spotted another camper in a big RV having 5 little dogs, 3 were pugs, and the other two were little mixed dogs.
    As Buddy and I talked to the owner and Buddy trying to figure out if he needed glasses or was he really seeing 3 of a kind and two mixed, the owner was telling me they are a handful, but he wouldn’t want it any other way.
    He said they all play together, investigate together, eat together, but sleep in there own spots. Each had there own spot in the RV and at home to sleep, he said it’s always been like that.
    I dont think I could handle that many, especially camping with that many dogs. The owners were in there 60’s.
    My hat off to them.
    Buddy loved playing with them, after he figured out he didn’t need glasses. LOL
    Oh Buddy and I are going back to that campground Monday for a week, maybe we might see them again, and this time take some pictures.
    Again Thank You Will & Eko for a great blog

    My breed can have such different looks, we don’t look as identical. My Kuvasz sister Katie had a Kuvasz friend in Germany which was cool as they were identical – white!

    pug of war – snorts. I like that. XOXO – bacon

  7. Those are some adorable pairs. And pair of pairs! Mom is waiting to see a dog that looks like me. What’re the chances of that happening?

    Love and licks,

  8. “Pug o wars” LOL…good one Will. I had two dogs from one litter once. They didn’t look much alike though. Hailey looked like a lab and Jasper looked like a mini-shepard with flopped ears. So darn cute to have two at once. When they were little, they’d wrestle around. Wish I had a camera in my phone then 🙁

    We have 4 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels….. 2 red & white, one ruby and one tri colored. We have a doggie door and fenced in backyard but when we walk them I take 2 and my husband takes 2. Handful? yes ….. but they are our fur-kids.

  10. One of my favorite things is when my cockers do things in tandem. I can’t explain it other than I find it endlessly amusing.
