They spend the mornings frolicking around the expansive backyard.
They run up and down the hills, wrestle in the dirt, and yap through the small cracks in the fence as if they were gossiping with their neighbors, the tiny Chihuahuas at the house next door.
True, they’ll argue, usually in the form of gnawing on each other’s ears and snapping at one another (while the other, usually the baby, runs away in fear).
Then, they’ll relax in the late afternoon sun, curled up together at the foot of the hill.
It must be a nice life, big baby and little mama.
