Meet Luke & Tempie

Here are some pics my daughter Kristan recently took of our puppies (barely puppies they are about 11 months old now). These are all clickable for much larger versions.

Luke & Tempie

Tempie is the black and white female. She is a Rat Terrier. When we first got her she was the calm one so we named her Temperance which means:

moderation in action, thought, or feeling : restraint

And yes we did get the name from the Bones character.

Luke & Tempie

We later discovered that she is actually the smarter and more aggressive of the two dogs.

Here she is peeking out the dog door.

She has calmed down somewhat over the last few weeks though. We think perhaps some of Luke’s sweetness is starting to rub off on her.

Tempie

Luke is the brown and white male. He is half Papillon and half Rat Terrier. The breeder said they share the same grandma. I named him after two pop culture icons – Marvel’s Luke Cage and General Hospital’s Luke Spencer. He seemed rather fearless when we first got him. He was also a little bigger than all the other pups & was very boisterous knocking all the others down as he jumped up and down trying to get our attention in the tiny pin they were all in.

Luke

He actually grew into a very sweet & lovable goof ball.

Luke

Although he is larger than Tempie and quite capable of kicking her butt he never does although they wrestle around all the time. He almost always lets her “win”. She totally dominates him and he wouldn’t have it any other way!

  7. The Gene Simmons Luke picture is my favorite. Also, I’d like to add that Tempie actually likes me now. I know, shocking considering I thought that day wouldn’t ever come.
