Brothers

A lot of you have been asking how Knox is doing with Eli.  Well, he's just like the rest of us.  He's in love!  
As long as Knox has been around, we've tried to socialize him with other dogs and kids.  Fred's sister has four kids so he's been around them from the time he was born or they were born.  We knew the day would come when Knox would be a big brother and we wanted him to be familiar with crying and attention being diverted to another living thing.  
When we first brought Eli home, we put him in the floor and let Knox sniff all over him.  Knox would get up with us in the middle of the night to feed him and Knox was beside him constantly. 
Now that Eli has been at home for almost two months, Knox doesn't get up in the night, but he's always around his baby brother.  Knox will come up and give Eli a kiss and then snuggle right up next to him. Not only are they brothers, but I see them being best friends!
