Today is Purple Day, a day dedicated to increasing awareness about epilepsy. Until a few years ago, I didn’t realize that epilepsy occurs in dogs too. However, it can be managed with medication, and epi-dogs can live long active lives. Caicos and Turks are doing their part with the cutest purple bow tie and floral collar.
These cuties were only two months old when they posed for Cecilee Westen of Richard Bell Photography. The adorable Brindle Boxer is Turks, and Caicos is the gorgeous Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd mix.
From Cecilee: “Turks and Caicos were just adopted before we did this shoot! They barely knew their names but were just as adorable as you can imagine! ‘Sit’ was one that we worked on a lot that day.
They were such good babies. They love going to the beach, meal time, and walks with mom and dad after dinner!”
From Kaitlin: “Turks is presently an eleven-month-old Boxer and Caicos is presently an eleven-month-old Great Pyrenees and Anatolian Shepherd mix. Turks and Caicos are both very lovable and smart, and they love to chew everything!
Turks is very friendly, goofy, and playful. He loves to cuddle and sit on his sister’s head! Caicos is friendly and protective.
She loves to give hugs and kisses, but hates when her brother sits on her head! Although Turks is an annoying little brother, Caicos loves him, and now the two are inseparable.”

They are SO cute and have the best names! Thanks for sharing the information about epilepsy awareness, too. I see that question come up so often in dog forums and in Facebook groups, so it’s helpful to have a great, positive resource to share!!
