Sweet Sophie

I've been in Indiana, visiting a friend. She has Charlie's sister, Sophie, and I'm amazed by the sibling similarities. The two dogs not only look alike, but they have the same mannerisms, too! They both hold their heads the same way, lie in the same positions, grab your arm in their teeth when they get too excited, and squint when they're happy. They have their differences, but I constantly catch myself calling her "Charlie".

Ciara and Thunder are half-sibings, sharing the same father. We also notice an unbelievable amount of similarities with them, not physical appearance, but expressions, behavior, sleeping styles, etc.

I know just what you mean. Characteristics you wouldn't even notice are shared by some siblings, so cute to watch.

What fun to compare! I know exactly what you mean! I had the same thing happen to me a few years ago. I met the sibling of our very first Golden--It was like I was looking at our boy Tod and I couldn't take my eyes off of him. However it was a bittersweet moment for me because Tod had died 6 years earlier.

they're peas in a pod!

I have the same smile as my brother too, but we are easily differentiated coz he's more cream colored.

Welcome home!!! We've missed you guys! Sophie is a beauty and does look so much like Charlie. Her facial features look a tad more delicate than charlie but then I guess that is the girl in her! Pair of handsome hounds for sure!

Twins for sure.
