To some degree, we've all wondered could Fin, a maned wolf, and Matty, a Labrador, really develop a brotherly bond? Why, yes, they sure can! During one of their outdoor exercise times this past week, Mr. Matty discovered a prized treasure...a solid piece of bark. With those puppy-chewing instincts beginning to take over, this was quite the find and he proudly bounced around the space displaying his newly-acquired toy.
Until, sneaky Fin sideswiped with a steal.
As you can imagine, a playful game of chase ensued with the victory going to Fin this round.
The bark was quickly forgotten, and the pups gave into some more chasing and a healthy wrestling match. If this doesn't describe brothers, I'm not sure what else does.
Fin and Matty also had a chance to show off for a few guests...a mother and her young daughter had a chance to meet the puppy pair! And as you can imagine, it was pretty darn adorable.
Until next week friends!
