and Baron are rescued shelter brothers, and are famous for
their soft, curly fur and big elephant ears. They were the only two
bucks from a mainly "all girls" litter. Many people ask me how I tell
them apart, and the answer is the markings on their belly. Blackjack has
one big white spot, and Baron has two little ones. These boys are
special in many ways; they are the sweetest things and let all the
neighborhood kids handle them without even a squeak of protest. The
brothers play a friendly game of pea-fishing every now and then, their
favorite sport, which involves diving for frozen peas in a bowl of
water. Baron is also able to jump remarkably long distances up in the
air, hence the name. However, despite all their astonishing athletic
abilities, there is never such a thing to Baron and Blackjack as too
much sleepy-time or too many treats.
