As an Eclectus Parrot Ruby Sue has a calm, easy-going personality, but when something scares her she goes for option number 3 skipping over the fight or flight responses and choosing to freeze.
No worries though, Ruby Sue does great no matter where she goes in her job to further feathered education about avian care and culture. She and Zavo, a male Eclectus (below in the bright green with the candy corn beak), were breed by her current family, they were raised in other homes by loving bird families, but they both returned to their original family and are happy to be together again.
While "Z Man" Zavo enjoys spending his time talking to furniture (cupboards and bed frames fascinate him), Ruby Sue prefers building nests out of boxes or scouting for cozy locations by running underneath the couch.
"In my dreams I race rabbits and always win with my ears flapping like eagles wings behind me."
From paw to shoulder, Abby may only be a foot tall, but she packs a lot of heart (and 52 pounds) into her long Basset Hound frame.
Yes, every dog at the dog park can run zig zagging circles around her, but Abby still loves to play the game, and in true hound style she howls with enthusiasm, cheering everyone forward. When the taller dogs dash into the pond, Abby makes quite the sight splashing behind them with her long ears floating out next to her.
At home Abby entertains herself by jumping from the couch to the table and jumping from the table to the other side of the baby gate to get to her people. She's very clever at finding the best ways to jump over obstacles and practices her vertical leap daily over the drain pipe in her backyard.
Ruby, the Mini Dachshund, also carries a fine lineage to match her luxurious fur.
Fiercely independent and completely fascinated by people, Ruby refuses to live life in a gilded cage (or rather a soft-sided kennel). Try to contain her and she'll always find a way to escape and cuddle up to her fellow Doxie Onyx or her gal pal Megan.
And those reports you've heard of Ruby participating in weiner dog racing, untrue. This dappled diva does not Doxie Dash.
And that's all natural energy, although Marny did have a minor youthful indiscretion with pharmaceuticals. Dressed in the "cone of shame" after her spay surgery, Marny felt she deserved a treat and snarfed down an entire bottle of elderly dog supplements. . . and part of a book. Billions find reading books very informative, but some lessons you must earn through experience.
Marny does know the stuff that really counts. After a sudden, family tragedy, Marny stepped up to give comfort to her girl, offering cuddles and kindness. As part German Shepherd, Marny works tirelessly to protect her loved ones, body, mind, and soul.

While this Tabby enjoys hanging out with her people in her own territory, this adventurous lady will (somewhat) happily wear a leash to boldly follow her people into the unknown.
Mitzy also thinks humans are fascinating and will eagerly greet almost anyone with a delicate sniff and a reassuring head bop. People who smell of yummy food get priority acceptance with Mitzy.
