“Buster learned all of his behaviors from Kaiser,” German said. news week. “When we first got Buster, we were worried that Kaiser would be too rough with him. But we were wrong: Kaiser was very nice to his little brother. To this day, they play together, snuggling in the dog’s bed and following him around. Mom around the house (and get in her way).”
