We have shared this theory twice before – here and here – but we always wonder whether Ruby and Cheoah are long-lost sisters. Both were found abandoned in the same town and have many similar markings and mannerisms. During a hike on Sunday, we happened to have one of those moments that made us wonder again.

Canine Kitchen Flood
March 19, 2023
One of my dogs had an accident which resulted in a canine kitchen flood. No, no, not the way you just imagined. He’s more creative than that.
Way Back Wednesday
Each week, we reach back into our vault of over 4,700 previous posts and share a favorite. We hope you enjoy this look back.
The Queen and Decorum
Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
They do seem to have lots physically in common. It is cool to ponder whether their familial connection brought to them both to a place where they could reunited again.
Oh I see a resemblance! And I bet fate brought you back togethers!
They do have an uncanny likeness 😉
They do look a lot alike.
It could be possible, and how cool would that be?
Even sisters have to have a few unique traits of their own. I really do tend to believe that they are sisters! Have you thought about doing one of those DNA tests just for fun?
They are sisters in looks and spirit!
It looks like they like to “hang” together, too, like there is a bond there. That’s like me’n my Dad (Ice). Even though Ice IS my Dad, he was 6 years old when our hu-Mom & Dad brough him home to live with us too, because he was finished with his show-dog life, and just wanted a “forever home” where he could be loved and spoiled. Well, now we are inseparable, and even when we go back out to the kennel where we were born, we play with the rest of the Sibes, but we still hang together most. (Ayla)
we think you are on to something
Amazing how similar they look. I would be shocking if they weren’t considering they were both from the same town. DNA will tell the facts!!!
They are both so darn beautiful!!!

They certainly do look a lot alike. Do they share the same Ruby love of food?

I second the DNA testing. Heck it is available through Petco here so it can’t cost that much to do! You guys should as they look like twins, definitely!
I bet they are sisters too!
Well, sisters or not, they look great together!! The bond shows and that’s just beautiful!!
Aw, they do look alike!
They definitely look alike. Can you DNA test them? I know you can do that to find out the breed for mix dogs. But it’d be cool if the kits could match their DNA. 🙂
You can tell if dogs are related by looking at them. If you know them well, especially, you can see similar features. And if you know the parents, you can also see the pups in them. Just like with people.
Wouldn’t that be cool if they were siblings. Both abandoned and then brought back together again. Although, who in their right mind would ever abandon a pet anyway!
Yes! They do very much so. Do they always hang out together on a walk?
How is Rusty the Rooster these days?
