I have no firm evidence for my choice of breed here: mom and dad had no idea. But I’m going to go with Catahoula mixes, because some of them are brindles and these two just kinda look right.
Yaoyao means ‘far away’ in Chinese… not sure if that’s where it came from. Cheche apparently means a lot of things in a lot of different languages, but I prefer to think that it comes from an African language, and means ‘small thing’. Cheche is the male, with the splash of white on his chest.
