A peculiar knack for the perpendicular

Just learned today that there is an updated photo on GoogleEarth of TFL taken 4/18/13.  Pleased to double check my near perfect rectangle of a pen I built for the boys.  I measured the long diagonals by hand when I built it.  Doesn't get much more rectangular than that.  Check it out on GoogleEarth and see if you can find Ben and Bud.  89,101,73,0,B,0

used goo maps instead of earth... not always the same.
Think Bud & Ben are part ninja or are napping in their condo - if I had to guess, looks like the far end of the ▯
off center, to the left? Ben is looking back at the homestead… may have to nickname them Waldo & Marco.

— took another run at it:
29.54932,-103.586708 - Ben- give or take?
29.549274,-103.586626 - Bud
