Coco will gladly challenge a dog 8 times her size but she is very afraid of flies. Also, she does not believe she is a dog.
Honus is a senior Yorkipoo on the cusp of the ripe old age of 15. He can be found skillfully expressing his many needs by barking at his moms, Emma and Shenel. He loves making new people friends, chewing on his lambchop toys, sunbathing in the grass, and pretty much any food (especially human food). Dislikes include thunderstorms, strollers, big dogs (until he gets to know them), and the groomer.
Duchess is a 17-year-old rescue living out her golden years in the Great Indoors after spending much of her life as an outdoor cat in California. Her likes include cuddling, eating fish, and terrorizing her dog brother, Honus. She does not like car rides, having her toe beans touched, or being ignored by her moms, Emma and Shenel.

Echo AKA Most (as in, Most Precious Girl) is a 2.5-year-old Australian Shepherd with the boundless energy of a new puppy. She loves running and jumping and catching frisbees and above all, playing tug. Or maybe snuggling. Or maybe getting belly rubs. She has many dreams in life (that are absolutely hers and not projections from her girl human, Taylor, and dude human, Lukas) including learning agility and visiting the Continental Divide.
Elle is a rescue who recently joined the Teachman-Nosek family and she is a very sweet, gentle giant. She is a big fan of burrowing under covers, snuggling, walks, barking at other dogs to play, and sleeping diagonally on beds so humans have no way to stretch out.
Osa is a 5-year old rescue pitbull mix who loves food above all else. When she is not eating or scavenging for food, she can be found begging María & Ren for broccoli stalks (weirdly her favorite). In her spare time, she enjoys sunbathing, snuggling, and snoring oh-so-very loudly. Likes: being a loner teenager yet having access to her humans at all times, snacks, neck scratchies. Dislikes: being told 'no', getting a bath, and her sister (Aoife) invading her personal space.
Aoife (phonetic: Ee-fah) is a 2-year old rescue pitbull mix whose love for chasing a ball is only paralleled by her love of being the center of attention. When she is not bringing the ball to you in the hopes you'll toss it for the 345th time, she will invade your personal space with sweet, yet full-bodied, snuggles (she 100% does not realize she weighs 50lbs). Likes: ball, ball, ball, Osa's personal space, and snuggles. Dislikes: any affection being given to someone who is not her, unfamiliar sounds.
