Linus and Lefty's mom says: My two boys are the best of friends! Linus is a ten-month-old shar pei and Lefty is a three-year-old French bulldog. We got Linus when he was four and a half months old. My husband wasn't crazy about the thought of two dogs in our little house, but Lefty needed a pal so he finally gave in. We chose the name Linus because he drags his blankie around and is as sweet as the cartoon character in Peanuts. (I wanted to name him Kong after King Kong because he looks like a gorilla.) These babies of mine might be funny looking to some, but to me they are beautiful.
