our boys

Meet Oscar and Felix, our odd couple. Our boys were found in a dumpster in October of 2003 when they were one day old. Someone dropped them off at the Austin SPCA and Tonja just happened to be there that day for volunteer work. A few hours later, she was bottle feeding our mutts every 2 hours for a few months. Hard to believe, but they really are brothers.

We were not kidding – here are the boys at about a week old. It’s hard to imagine they could fit in the palm of Tonja’s hand, and now they’re 80 and 50 lbs…


Oscar and Felix enjoy their time at the lake. They enjoy the walk, chasing vultures, swimming, and finding dead fish. And the rocks are pretty cool too.
