Ivy is an 8 year old Great Dane. She weighs 170lbs. She loves to go on walks and wouldn't leave Jeff's side for anything, not even for a squirrel. She is scared to death of most things, mostly the vacuum cleaner. She has a little trouble with her back hips but at least once a day she gets pretty spunky and wants to play rough outside. She loves to go on walks in the evenings with Ethan.
Freya is a 4 year old white Great Dane. She weighs 165lbs. Freya is deaf and she is blind in one eye. She gets around perfectly, however, and knows many hand signals. She is the undisputed queen of the pack. Freya has the ultimate 'she has no idea how big she is' syndrome. She will sit on you and doesn't care if you animal or human.
Luna is a 6 year old Great Dane. She weighs 146lbs. She loves to mother the other dogs. She also loves to carry around toys in her mouth trying to talk the other dogs in to playing with her. She and Ethan play together more than any of the other dogs. Ethan and her love to be outside. There are so many times they are outside by themselves playing.
Molly is our oldest dog at 13 years. She is also our smallest dog weighing in at 45 lbs. Sitting on your lap is not good enough for her. She can never get close enough and would climb on your shoulder if you let her. Although she is the oldest, she has the sharpest sight, hearing and guarding instinct of all of our dogs.
Jinx is our youngest dog at 3 years old. He is named after our youngest Great Dane Leo James Jenkins (Jinx) Callaway. Leo passed away 3 years ago very suddenly and unexpectedly. Jinx would be happy just to lick you in the face all day long. If he hears another furry animal getting attention in the other room, he will begin whining until someone comes and gives him some love.
Garcia is our only male cat and the middle feline child at 8 years old. He is by far the most eccentric of our cats. His go to sleep spot is over the vent in the bathroom. He sits at the dinner table as if he is just waiting patiently for his plate. He ultimately behaves more like a dog than a cat. He is named after Jerry Garcia.
Joplin is our youngest cat at 6 years old. Oddly enough she is our only lap cat. She maintained semi-feral tendencies for the first four years of her life. Then like the flipping of a switch she turned into a tame attention seeker. She is named after Janis Joplin.
Ziggy is our dominant cat and she is 10 year old. She is our working cat. She makes her laps around the house making sure that all is how it should be. She is named after Ziggy Marley.
Ms. Kitty is our oldest cat coming in at about 12 years old. She is also our loner. Although she loves human attention she is not always interested in hanging out with the other cats or the dogs. She enjoys the peace of the downstairs family room and the calm company of our rabbit, Stormy Fangs.
Stormy Fangs is our one and only rabbit and is 3 years old. He was thought to be a dwarf rabbit, but is now bigger than any of our cats. Stormy was his original name. Fangs was added because when he was just a tiny bun-bun he would nibble.
