Another update.

Well, the boys have been growing and learning and growing some more. Jack is really a fruit bat in disguise and loves plums and apples. Both of them are omnivores, which is a bit different to Taz who thinks you are poisoning him if you offer him fruit. Jack likes runner beans too. The chaps have had their first run-in with the dreaded fleas but are now righteous again, having been to the vets for a dose of Frontline.
Jack is beginning to develop some lovely water-ripple kinks in his coat. Pip is getting a fluffy tail. Pip is the more laid back and outgoing of the two. Jack is more athletic and tighter-knit, but Pip was the first to suss how to get downstairs. Jack just sat at the top and screamed despite being the better runner and jumper. Pip has the better confidence which is what made the difference. They are well socialised with other dogs now. At home we are only having minor spats for dominance and a point and a hard stare is all it takes to keep order. All is motoring well at the moment. I've included some photos from the last fortnight.
