As you can see here, these two furbabies are the best of pals — “true love bugs,” says proud pet mom Merry Mayell.
It’s easy to tell which one is the “lovable” Ellie May — the 9-year-old rescue boxer is the one with her leg draped over her cuddle partner.
Little brother Cesar, a 2-year-old boxer-pit bull mix, is also a rescue dog. He joined the family on Christmas Eve 2012.
“First thing, he thought an 8-pound free weight was his toy,” Merry recalls. “Picked it up in his mouth and put it in the middle of my bed!”
Besides weightlifting and snuggling up together, Merry says her big, cuddly furbabies love getting treats, play boxing and, of course, their human mom!
