Can You Tell the Brothers Apart?

As Typhoon has grown and matured (ok, sure, he has a long ways to go, but he is starting to physically mature at least), he looks more and more like his big step-brother Frankie. Can you tell the brothers apart?


Quick – who is on the left and who is on the right?

Can you tell?

The second picture makes it a little easier. Can you tell?

The answer in tomorrow’s post. Go ahead and note your guess in the comments.

    I think Frankie is on the purple leash and Typhoon is on the red leash. He really is growing up nicely!

    I think Typhoon is on the left. His youth still shows, and he’s still all “ALERT!!! WHAT’S THAT??? OMG! SQUIRREL??? BIRD??? DID YOU SEE THAT???” in both pics. While Frankie on the right is more head down, all business “seen it before, get back to work, there’s nothing to see there, we’re on a walk here”. But I could be wrong 🙂

    Anyone else notice the extra leg on the one on the right LOL 😉

    Typhoon (still really love that name!) is on the left. He’s taller than big brother Frankie.

    Typhoon is on the left. One he is a little bit darker and frankie is filled out more than ty. They do really look alike from behind though.

    Looks like a puppy butt on the left.

    I’m guessing Frankie on the left. I think his coat is darker than Typhoon’s.

    I’m guessing Typhoon on the left, but you’re right. It’s hard to tell because he is filling out.

    I love your pictures.
