Prince and Digby never leave each other's side.

Double Trouble — Digby and Prince — are best pals who live with Courtney Bayne, university records manager with Dalhousie Libraries.

Names:  Double Trouble (cause one does not go without the other) – Digby (dog) and Prince (cat).

Nicknames: Dog-be or Dig and Prin or Prinny.

Species/Breed: German Short Haired Pointer and Tabby.

Age: Digby is 5 years and Prince is about 7 months.

Fave food: Digby like popcorn and Prince, pretzel sticks.

Special tricks: Digby's special tricks are playing fetch & catching the items in the air (including popcorn!), sitting pretty, bowing, & doing ‘Rabbit’ (bouncing on hind legs in a full vertical extension). Prince's special tricks are sleeping anywhere, hunting flies, & pulling the ‘Puss n’ Boots eyes’ when caught doing wrong.

Best Quality: Both are super cuddlers; playing with each other like puppies.

Social Media Platform or handle if avaible: No time to post. Digby is very busy training his little bro to play fetch and go outside on a leash like a gentleman.
