Our Pack

Zack is a programmer extraordinaire. His language of choice is Python. He loves programming and is very big into games including: Magic the Gathering, Roblox, Dungeons & Dragons, and Terraforming Mars.

Ollie and Luna specialize in chasing squirrels, taking naps, chewing chew toys (and occasionally laptop cables), and being good pups. They are both partial to Nornir.

Jupiter is all dog. She loves to be near her people and loves her food (not necessarily in that order). She likes the water, the beach, chasing birds, and meeting new people. She is categorized as "an aggressive chew breed" and is living up to that category.

Frances Anne was born to a litter of eight. She was the runt, but clearly the star in her eye shone brighter. Eleven years later, she has been Lee's faithful companion, never spending a day of her life alone.
