Their owners share: They adore each other! They share bones, blankets, and lie down only after very carefully making sure they are touching the other in some way. Either a foot or head in contact or simply lying partway on the other. J
2/12/17: We have had several poodles over the past 33 years, and Eli and Julius are right up there at the top as the sweetest, most intelligent, adorable, and downright lovable pups we’ve ever had. They are simply fantastic and absolutely beautiful! We are so glad we got two, as they adore each other and are the very best of buds. We thought we had pups that were close before, but these guys set a whole new standard for getting along and just adoring each other.
4/13/17: As you predicted, Eli is still stockier, and Julius is lankier. They look pretty much the same size to the eye, very little difference. They are both awesome kiddos, and we get compliments on their personalities.
We’re growing, but we’re still
joined at the hip! And back and tail and head…. Still best
Julius and Dad – more best buds!
But, Dad, that movie on TV is a little scary! Can I just sit lay on you and stay
safe until it’s over?
We’re growing bigger and bigger.

one more adorable pose. There… Mom, wouldn’t you like to put your camera away
and start walking again? Let’s do this!
Let’s show Tes & Dani how pretty we are
when we sit! We’re perfect!!!!
Oh, Mom One, why did we stop?
Mom are you taking pictures again?!
We make our own art; we call

Mom, are his teeth supposed to
be that pointy? And why’s he looking at me like that? Mom?
Julius is Eli’s uncle, but we
just call them “brothers” since they’re only two weeks apart in age. They adore
each other so much! You could say they’re joined at the hip… oh, wait… Hip and
I think I’ll stay here in Mom two’s arms where it’s safe! My Mom has Asperger’s Syndrome, and I hope someday
I’ll train to be her service dog for anxiety and low blood sugar. We won’t know
until I’m about a year old if I can train to be an official Service Dog, but I
know I’ll be a comfort to my Mom no matter what and I can be an Emotional
Support Dog… well, I already am!
Eli’s eyes are so bright with intelligence and love!

Mom brushed us again. Must correct the problem – quick, roll in the driest grass you can find!

Yep, those are definitely teeth in Julius’ mouth!

Ahh that feels great!! I am happy happy now!
