Spanky's mom says: Spanky (with the black snout) is an American Staffordshire terrier and Darla is an American pit bull terrier. Spanky and Darla are best friends forever. I am Darla's aunt and baby-sitter. When Darla is visiting, which is quite often, most of their time is spent sleeping after many hours of playing tug of war. Their favorite place to sleep is in bed under the covers.
