A fun visit with Doug, Tyler and Pants

Doug, Tyler (muzzled) and Tom
My brother Doug came to the area for three days of meetings for his job, so one night we got to have dinner together. He also encountered Tyler and his black pants fixation.
    Doug and I (Rob) are very close and best of friends. I'm 2 years, one month and 4 days older (we've always said that since we were kids). Growing up, we were also each other's best friend and always did things together from baseball to reading comic books. We've always been there for each other and always will  Sadly, we live about 400 miles from each other,so when we do get together it's a treat! We had a nice Italian dinner at a local place to us called "Squisitos" and then he came back to the house for a short time to say hello to his niece Dolly (the Weimaraner), and nephews Franklin and Tyler (the Dachshunds).

TYLER AND PANTS -    The first time Doug met Tyler when we adopted him in early 2013, Tyler nipped him in the ankle. Since then, I've recently realized that Tyler, although black and tan himself, doesn't like people wearing black pants for some reason (as our friend Will can attest to, since Tyler has tried to snack on his leg a couple of times). Maybe it takes away from his individuality. And after all, he's king of the house. So, we put a soft muzzle on him this time, because Doug unfortunately just happened to be wearing black pants!  - Rob

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
