Contestant #10

Scout and Toby

"Here are my furbabies: Scout and Toby. Believe it or not they're not related. Toby (on the right) is from Phoenix, AZ and Scout (on the left) is a rescue from a shelter in Las Vegas, NV. But whether they are related or not, they are definitely "brothers" when it comes to love. They are Italian Greyhounds and this is their favorite hobby: snoozing and cuddling together. I draw pet portraits for a living and I joke that they are my main form of advertising! Pet lovers invariably come up to me and ask what breed they are, allowing me to meet tons of new clients. So they pull their weight when it comes to the family finances! But their most valuable contribution to my life is the unconditional love they give me every day. In the words of Roger Caras: "Dogs have given us their absolute all. We are the center of their universe. We are the focus of their love and faith and trust. They serve us in return for scraps. It is without a doubt the best deal man has ever made."
