Long Lost Littermates!

This is one of our favorite memories this year!

Pi a La Mode is a ball of rambunctious adorable goodness we have the pleasure of seeing often in daycare. She is the cuddliest Blue Heeler mix you'll ever meet. Well we couldn't help but notice one day that she bore a striking resemblance to another dog, Deacon, who was staying with us over the weekend. Deacon is a sweet Cattle Dog mix as well, and they both had very similar "masks" around their face.

The Kennel Staff noticed right away that the two dogs greeted eachother like they had already met, like they were old pals. Interesting...very interesting...

Even MORE interesting was that Pi and Deacon had the exact same birthday, April Fools day of 2003! (And I might add, a very fitting birthday for Miss Pi!)

When we mentioned this coincidence to Pi and Deacon's Moms, we found out they came from the exact same litter! Brother and Sister reunited at All For Doggies! We couldn't resist snapping a family photo, despite the fact that Pi and Deacon clearly wanted to play instead of pose. (Pi is the little girl on the left, and her brother Deacon is on the right.)
