Sydney
- Chesapeake Bay Retriever

Jackson - Miniature Donkey

(also loves little people... and carrots)


Roland - Alpaca

(very curious, likes to hang out, but doesn't care much to be touched)



Gibson - Alpaca #2

(also very curious, and territorial, has been observed chasing a coyote off the property)



Popeye - Green Amazon Parrot

(he laughs, he cries, he coughs like a chain-smoker, barks like a dog, speaks at least two languages, and sings like an opera star... he prefers the key of "F")


Otis - Canary

(also sings... very sweet melodious sonnets... unlike his roommate, Popeye)
