Bella was adopted from the Northwoods Humane Society over three years ago by Alex. She is half Yorkie and half Rat Terrier. She weighs a whole 9 pounds. She is very well behaved but is also as weird as can be. Her dreams include swimming in every lake in the state of Minnesota and destroying the entire fly population.

Birch was rescued by Alex and Dan in May 2014 from Good Karma Animal Rescue of MN. Birch is part Labrador Retriever, part Corgi, among a few other things. He is the most gentle, fun-loving dog you could imagine. He and Bella instantly became best friends from the moment they met. Birch enjoys trying to catch flying bugs out of mid-air and running off leash while on hikes with his sister and parents.

Jude is Tom and Kathryn’s Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. He is cute as can be, but has a unique ability to annoy Tom and be babied by Kathryn. Jude loves rough-housing with Birch and testing Bella’s limits when they all get together. Jude was born in December of 2013, so he is still learning the ropes.
