Daughters of nephews

Aunt Sandy likes to spoil Bitzi.

We're so proud of Brawn, our 11 yr old Irish Terrier, because he loves his new sister, Bitzi. She has only been here a week and it only took him a couple of days to accept her. Brawn doesn't want to share food (a typical Wilcox) with her, otherwise, they play and sleep together.
