Samus likes to roll up into a little orange ball and fight metr-- err, I mean sleep. She likes to sleep. Being the runt of her litter she is small even by min-pin standards. Also she demands that you pet her RIGHT NOW! Ok now you can never stop petting her or she will bark at you incessantly to resume.
Chairperson of the Anti-Social Social Club, Nibbles is not to be trifled with. She does not suffer fools and has no love to share with anyone other than her human dad. When she is not cowering in the kitchen cabinet, she is hiding in the bed room for fear of having to socialize with visitors to her domain.
"Woof I am Sir Reginald Puggington, but you may call me Reggie! I am a pure-breed Cali pug living the life in Austin, TX and besides the heat, I love it here. During the day, you can find me channeling my inner Labrador Retriever as my energetic self loves to run around and play fetch. I return back to my pug self at night where I plop myself on the couch and welcome all cuddles and kisses (and treats! They always get my curly tail waggin'). Thanks for stopping by and getting to know me. Woof woof!"
Lick Bull Terrier. So cute. Keeps her own blog.
Discoverer, opportunist, and cuddler. Browsing around as a mini puma. Loves meat, as he is a cat, and has his own instagram!
Training for their future mission to space.
Harley's nickname is Pancake, because she loves to squeeze herself under furniture that is incredibly close the ground. Ozzy's real name is Oswald but we call him Fluffernutter, because he is incredibly fluffy and also pretty nutty. They both love to eat, so their owners can never leave (cat or people) food out. Harley is a scaredy-cat but also master of the household, and Ozzy loves to chew on cardboard and zoom around the house at precisely 10pm. They share custody of an office chair between their two owners and can often be found in collusion against Batman.
Spirit is a rescued Chihuahua/Corgi mix that's the size of a Chihuahua but looks like a Corgi. He's an expert in extreme cuddling, begging for food, and being half-interested in playing with toys. In his spare time, he likes to take up all the space on the sofa or bed, also lick arms, and beg for more food.
Rocket found his forever home with us in Febuary 2018. He is full of energy which may explain why he was given up twice before coming home to us! His DNA test revealed that he's 50% American Staffordshire Terrier, 12.5% Husky, 12.5% Golden Retriever and 25% hound. He's 100% nuts and we love him!
Remi (Australian Shepard) is a loving, playful pup who only wants to make you happy! He is patient and used as a stepping stool for our 15 month old baby. Gunner (Yorkie) is small but makes sure everyone knows who's boss since he was around before everyone else. He loves to cuddle and eat everything in sight.

Helena is possibly male, not sure. Anyway, she came with four other fish like her (the others got stuck in the filter), four shrimp, and three bettas. Everyone else died except her (I tried so hard, honestly, I don't know what I did wrong, I'm half convinced she did it) and two of the shrimp - they are called Alfred and Jarvis. I named her Helena after [the character in Orphan Black](http://orphanblack.wikia.com/wiki/Helena).
Fraggle is a Papillon/Chihuahua mix. Duckie is her best friend and she loves nothing more than cuddling with her human (she might love barking just as much)! Fraggle’s arch nemesis includes the 3S (squirrels, skateboards, scooters) as well as bikes. You can follow her adventures on Instagram @Fraggle_the_dog

Young. Active. Super-friendly. Extremely-friendly "sausage" with short legs and large ears that comes in the dogs' world under name ["Cardigan Welsh Corgi"](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cardigan_Welsh_Corgi). Loves everybody and everything that moves. Generally intelligent but an attempt to make an eye-contact from a stranger treats as declaration of love no matter what.
Toby is co-pets with Paul. Together, they enjoy the art of frisbee catching, running by the beach, and taking calls from Paul's home office (A.K.A. Toby's bedroom). Toby normally doesn't care for the content of Gitlab conference calls, but if he hears the word "bath", he will promptly vacate the room.
Parker, named in honor of Peter Parker (Spiderman) is a 10 month old English Mastiff weighing in at about 165 lbs with another 8 months of growing ahead of him. He thinks he is a lapdog and honestly will do just about anything for food! My team lovingly calls him my small pony LOL
Maggie and Lou (short for Louise) have huge personalities stuffed into tiny bodies. We like to say that Lou is a sweetheart grumpface and Maggie is a sweetface grumpheart. They love taking up the entire bed at night, mealtimes, and barking at neighborhood cats (naughty!).
Dulce (Sweet in Spanish) is not 100% sure what her breed is (her humans think she is a Jack Russell Terrier). She was rescued from the streets when she was 4 months old. She enjoys eating meat and hates dry food. She is extremely energetic and loves running in the park. She hasn't found another dog her size that can outrun her!
MaddieJo (aka MadJo) is an Augie (Corgi and Mini-Australian Shepard mix). She enjoys snacking, bone-chewing, and playing tug-o-war with a rope, but count her out if there's a thunderstorm or playing cards. Chewbacca (aka Chewie) is a Poma-Chi-Weenie-Poo (yes, for real). He enjoys running around like a mad man while coughing like a grandpa, but loathes travel days and often mopes in the backseat.
Rio is a French Bulldog who lives in Laguna Beach, CA and enjoys laying in the sun all day. His snoring can keep the entire house awake, so he sleeps as far away from the family as possible.

Together these two, always leave a clean floor when I'm cooking!!
Balu is the CFO (chief food officer) in a small flat in Germany. He is Momo's brother.
Momo always finds the right spot to lay on the keyboard to destroy your latest work in the most cutest way. He is Balu's brother.
Kaya joined us when she was ~1 year old to become a happy husky at sea. The beach and dunes are her playground, but being a typical 100% Siberian Husky she has to be on leash most of the time. She creates Food Requests all day, and merges them with cuddles. She probably dreams of Continuous Delivery of food...
Chaco, named after the footwear and her chocolate coloring, is a rescue pup and a mix of a bunch of breeds.
Gustur and Rokin are named after a couple of wind-related words in Icelandic. "Gustur" is like a gust of wind, and "Rokin" is like "wooshed", or "gone, leaving but a gust of wind".
Eddie is a Jack Russell mix who lives with his hoomans in Seattle, WA. He likes to play with his squeak toys and occasionally gets the zoomies. That said, generally he is surprisingly lazy for a Jack Russell, and above all else loves cuddling with and sleeping next to his hoomans.
Prince Wednesday Jackson (Prince is his first name and isn't an honorific) is a black German Shephard and rescue pup currently employed as the Director of Security for an anonymous client. Wednesday likes long walks on the beach, naps in the sunshine, and gets along well with every dog and human he's had the pleasure of meeting.
Jibboom is an adopted 8 year old American Staffordshire Terrier. He looks tough, but he's a big softie. He might jump on you, but only because he wants to lick your face so bad. His favorite things to do are lay outside in the sun, lay inside on the couch, lay on his bed, lay in his human's bed, and eat bananas. Jibboom is battling a few kinds of cancer - and winning, because nothing can keep his spirits down.
"Hi! I'm Toulouse, or at least thats what my human servants call me... I'm what they call in Dutch a 'lappenkat' but I prefer the English term 'Calico cat' since it's more 'Chique'! Anyway hope to meet you someday, and err could you bring some food because I'm always hungry! Purrrfect!"
Schatze was abandoned as a young pup in a cardboard box by the side of the road. She stole her dad's heart the first time they met at the pound, and they've been best buds for almost fifteen years. She loves chasing tennis balls and watching T.V., especially if the show is hosted by Gordon Ramsay or Steve Harvey. If you're ever in town for a visit she would love it if you gave her a litle bite of bacon please.
Eve and Harry are both from the Dakin Humane Society. Locally, Harry is known as "Harry, Prince of Fluff". Eve is named after the robot from wall-e. Adorable but slightly deadly.
Kato and Carter both came from Safe Hands Rescue. Kato is the dog that convinced his dad he needed a dog, and Carter came a year later when Kato clearly needed a pup fren.
Minka, Melnis, Pecis, and Brencis are all siblings from the same litter. Kat had planned to get one cat to take care of a mice problem. Instead she found Pecis, who believes himself to be a human. Not wanting him to be lonely, Kat and her SO also took Brencis, their most active cat who believes he's a dog, home at the same time. After two months, Melnis needed a home so Kat happily convinced her SO that three cats is the same as having two cats. When Minka was continuously rehomed, Mom decided to step in and convince her SO that four cats is the same as having two cats. Lesson learned: four cats is really double two cats in all ways possible. They all love massages, taking hour long walks, and eating more expensive meals than Kat and her SO.
Pepper is a rescue who lucked into our lives through an acquaintance who was having trouble finding her a forever home due to her general distrust of men. We took our other dog at the time, Nutmeg, to meet Pepper. Pepper instantly found her alpha/mother protector dog. She felt safe enough with Nutmeg that Pepper quickly adjusted to me. She's since become the sweetest, most loving dog (even if she does dig up our flower beds). Pepper spent her first two years on a farm and is supposedly half Catahoula and half pit bull.
We got Charlie a few short months ago from our local animal shelter. He is half boxer, half pit, and 100% goofy 1-year old puppy. His older sister Pepper is his new best friend and favorite chew toy. Usually the instigator, Charlie and Pepper spend several hours a day wrestling and playing tug of war. Charlie also likes to challenge Pepper to a game of "who can dig the biggest hole in the yard?" when we're not home. Now that I'm living the GitLab WFH lifestyle, I can keep an eye on his mischief.
Mikah (Calico in back) is our moody princess. She tends to think she rules the house, but the minute a new person walks in the house she drops her act and is the most loving cat you will ever meet. Luna (Tuxedo in front) is our laid back cat. She most likely will be found lounging around on her cat tower or near a window. Opposite to her sister, the minute someone new visits, she is no where to be found. With both of them however, once you get to know them, you'll find they are the most loving and gentle cats around.
Milou ("Milo") was named after the adventurous pup in the Adventures of Tintin due to his intrepid spirit and fearless (some would say neurotic) persona. He was discovered by Pilar at the County Animal Shelter where he had been picked up as a stray and been living a life under the alias Fabio. His plucky attitude immediately won over Pilar and her husband and after taking a DNA test he came back as alledgedly being all Chihuahua. His origin story is shrouded in mystery so guesses place him at around 10 years of age by now but you wouldn't know it from his eternally youthful behavior. When he's not sunbathing or protecting the fort, he enjoys helping keep the floors clean after his toddler roomates' meals and serving as part baby doll part super villain during their imaginary adventures around the house.
Darius is a 12 year old traditional Siamese cat who is living his best life. His human caters to his every want and need. He wakes her up every morning between 4-5am to be let outside and when she gets to the door he stands there pretending like he is trying to decide what he wants to do (he always goes outside). He loves to drink fresh water out of his humans hand, right out of the faucet. He is living the good life and his human loves him to the moon and back.
Theodore (Theo to his friends) is a feisty, loud and pretty crazy bengal cat, who likes to think that he's a dog. He loves his dad to death (smothering is a real risk!). He and his mum are constantly battling for Simon's attention, Theo normally wins. Benedict (Ben to his admirers) is, by comparison, sedate, lazy and sleeps a lot. That is until he senses the opportunity of going for a walk, when he will proceed to follow you to wherever it is you are going!
Meara was a lost kitten in a small local market. She was starving and decided to follow a human to a new home. For a while, she would eat anything that was either given or found edible; so she has big belly now even though she more picky on what she eats. Meara loves attentions from her humans. She has also learned skills like ankle bite, and grab and kick.
Persephone is a sweet little girl who loves every visitor. She assumes if you come over you want her in your lap at some point (if you don't, this house isn't for you). Her hobbies include keeping the kitchen floor clean and playing with her little stuffed animals, and of course her best friends...my kids! Since she is a goddess, she has a tiny chandelier in her crate, apropros of her position.
Chewie, named in honor of Chewbacca (Star Wars), is a Brittany Spaniel and has a rebellious spirit. Chewie enjoys adventures that include long car rides, kayaking, and boat rides! Chewie has an unflagging loyalty to his humans and can be found glued to their side while at dog parks instead of playing with other dogs. I suppose you can include people and dog watching as one of his favorite hobbies. When he's not going on adventures, he's typically perched by a window, staring at squirrels and birds from afar.
Muffin is a friendly, outgoing guinea pig, who loves nothing more than love itself. She will squeak and purr your ears off, and is anyone and everyone’s instant best friend. In her spare time, she enjoys dancing (her dance videos have gotten thousands of views!), eating vegetables at lightning speed, and consuming copious amounts of plastic (she’s a naughty little thing). She also makes a great mantelpiece (peep the pic above).
Charlie is a 20lb RagDoll cat who is very soft to touch, very friendly and beleives he is a dog. He enjoys sleeping, beating up on Gunner and begging for treats. A unique behavior of Charlie includes wanting people to watch him eat, seriously. Charlie also likes to jump in the kids play area (1 and 2 year old) and get mauled for a little bit.
Luzifer was always up to something. When Sebastian moved in one year ago it was clear that they would join forces to take over the world. They get disctracted by birds or insects very easily and sleep almost all day which makes it very unlikely that they will ever succeed.
Kiwi is the bomb. Incredibly chill for a chuhuahua, he will still go nuts if someone comes to the door given the prospect of meeting a friend, new or old. He enjoys walks around the neighboorhood and stopping to read the local paper -- at least that's what I figure he's doing when he sniffs his go-to mailbox post so thoroughly.
Cherry and Vanilla Bean are both rescue cats. While Cherry lived on the street for her first few months, Vanilla Bean was rescued at just 6 weeks old. They love and support their owners, Wil and Brandon, with all the bleps, boofs, and flops these long-girls can give.
Tony and Wally were adopted in Denver, CO from Outpaws Rescue. Their humans only intended on getting 1 cat, but couldn't bear to separate this father-son duo. They love to snuggle and be brushed, laze around in their cat hammock, and be given treats for just being cute.
Tziuka was rescued from the streets of Bucharest while she was training herself to be a stray dog. While she kept some of the acquired skills, like begging for food and eating the grossest things she finds on the ground, she is now enjoying the role of princess of the house. She loves running outside in huge circles around her humans and sometimes she only eats her meals if there’s gamification involved (e.g. hiding her food under a blanket).
Toph is, by far, the Worst Cat. If she understands English, which is debatable, it's likely she thinks her name is Worst. She was named for the destructive, powerful, yet charming Toph Beifong in Avatar: The Last Airbender. When not pursuing her ambitious and exhausting goal of sleeping 22 hours per day, Toph focuses her talents on the destruction of all shades and blinds in her humans' home. When time permits, she continues her quest to hunt down and kill all sunlight reflections from any phone or tablet, with the understanding that knickknacks are just collateral damage waiting to happen. She has an emphatic preference for her humans' left shoulders, rather than their right, for reasons she has never explained. She takes it for granted that her ears will be lovingly nommed every morning as her human reads her morning email.
Alastor is a one-eyed pirate void [black cat] rescued from the streets of Auckland, New Zealand. He recently flew 10,000 miles to join his human Rin when they moved back to the USA. His favorite activity is sleeping, begging for food [he weighs 16.6 lbs!!], or playing wih his brother from another mother, Teddy.
Teddy was adopted from an elderly woman in the mountains of New Zealand whose grandchildren had stuck drawings of Daleks to her fridge. He joined his brother Alastor on a 10,000 mile flight from New Zealand to the USA last year. Teddy's favorite toy is a squeaky green bone. He loves to play fetch, cuddle, and hang out at the dog park.
