COSMO

COSMO

Chief Hugger & Kisser

Cosmo is the happiest boy in the world, with the ability to brighten up anyone’s day with his consistent mega-watt smile. Don’t try to cross him and take his food though…he might not be so happy then. 

RAY

RAY

Chief Barking Officer

Ray is our local beauty king. Though he may not be the brightest bulb in the room, he’s always ready to strike a pose for any photo. Just point a camera at him and see how cute he is.

CLAIR

CLAIR

Chief Sofa Warmer

Clair is the dog you want near you when you’re anxious or stressed; our loyal companion. However, don’t expect her calm behaviour to hold up…especially when a golf cart, bike, or a ball is in sight.
