Meesha Kaufman’s five chihuahuas are a lot alike. Their tails wag, their eyes bulge, and their bark is almost certainly bigger than their bite. They’re all named after superheroes’ secret identities— Bruce Wayne, Tony Stark, Clark Kent, Peter Parker, and Wade Wilson. In other words, they are like any normal pampered chihuahuas. But there are ways to tell the dogs apart.
As the chihuahuas paw and nibble on each other like two-year-old pups are apt to do, it’s easy to notice that the black spotting on their white-furred bodies varies from dog to dog. Their personalities are also different, Kaufman says, pointing at each dog. “I have an angry one, a funny one, a really sweet one, and one that’s really independent.”
