The kids swear that the dog of the back yard neighbor is the same one.
I tried to make friends with the back yard dog and I have waxed profane about the dog who would not be friended.
This dog looks much the same, but the color is slightly off AND this one can be bought.
Oh he's tough... bark, bark, barking, but he's figured out the treats I proffer are DELICIOUS and I get a small hesitation prior to the bark, bark, barking. I'm thinking this one can be won over.
I'll let you know.
