starsky and hutch

Starsky and Hutch were adopted together as puppies, and orphaned this past April when their dad, age 56, died suddenly.  For all intents and purposes Starsky and Hutch are brothers.  They are a very closely bonded pair, so must be adopted together.  The brothers truly love each other and look out for one another.  Hutch is blind, but considers this a minor inconvenience and had everyone fooled for the first few days.  He simply follows Starsky everywhere and Starsky is never far away; always ready to guide his brother should he need help. 

A little over a year ago, Starsky had back surgery.  He made a full recovery, and is 100% good as new.  The vet said he can expect to live a full life if given good preventative care.  (No jumping off furniture and no stairs.) 

Both boys enjoy going for walks (a tandem leash helps Hutch know exactly where Starsky is) and car rides.  They love to be held and cuddled, and they are not shy about asking for hugs and belly rubs.  They can also be typical dachshunds, defending hearth and home against invaders like the gardener, postman, and UPS guy.
