    Oh yes, I’m sure Rusty is an excellent guard dog. He could walk behind a bad guy and trip him!

    Big brothers are definitely good to have around. At least when you’re a dog.

    Loki is soooo NOT a good big brother! Rusty, can you teach him?

    We totally agree – I love my Big Brother/Uncle Thor – I can’t imagine not having him around to chew on! Ha Ha!

    what a great pic – there is nothing like siblings – brother and sister are so important

    I bet all of us single dogs feel a little envy when we look at that picture of Qannik and Rusty.

    I wish I had a big brother too.

    TD would so agree with you, Rusty. But Phantom and Mom keep saying there is nothing quite like having a sister too. Thunder thinks that sounds good to him too.

    Great photo.

    My big little brother is not doing a very good job protecting me from thunder boomies. Can we trade?
