Atlas, a mastiff, left, and Louie, a French bulldog, seem to pose for their photo taken in Laura Brewer’s De Soto backyard.

Pamela Smith of De Soto looks forward to seeing her granddogs, Atlas and Louie, when she visits her daughter, Laura Brewer, who also lives in De Soto.

Smith believes Atlas, 6, a mastiff, and Louie, 1, a French bulldog, also enjoy her visits with them.

“I visit them with treats,” she said. “They like to see me.”

Smith said the dogs give her a warm greeting when she arrives.

“Atlas will stand up on his back legs to give me kisses,” she said. “Louie will try to be just like him.”

Atlas does not realize how big he is and will try to sit in her lap, Smith added.

“I believe he weighs 95 pounds,” she said.

Smith said Atlas and Louie both are active.

“They’re very playful,” she said.
