This is Merlin and Joe.
They belong to a family friend, and are quite the pair of characters.
Joe (the pitbull) was found alone on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere.
He was only about six weeks old, and his ears had already been cropped.
He was going to be a foster until he was healthy enough to adopt out, but needless to say, he stayed right where he belonged.
