Meet Charlie and Toto Smith

Meet Charlie and Toto, our new 8-week old Rat Terrier puppies.  Toto is smaller than his brother and has tan eyebrows and tan on his cheek.  The first image below is of Toto.  We picked them up yesterday in Marysville, Kansas, and life has been hectic trying to potty train these two brothers.

Rat Terriers are known to be digging escape artists who are true terriers: fiesty, funny, energetic, lively, vermin-chasing, and incapable of being boring.  President Theodore Roosevelt is said to have given the breed its name after his own terrier had eradicated the rat infestation at the White House; clearly, the Rat Terrier excels as a public servant--as long as its in its own best interest.

Their first portraits are of them in their first sleeping arrangement.  Even though Toto is smaller, he is the one that escaped out of his sleeping basket last night.
