Meet Our other Animals


We have three friendly dogs that run loose most of the time. A German Shepard named Bessie, a Mini-Dachschund named Nala, and a Yorkie named Pepper. If you are afraid of dogs please let me know before you come and I'll keep Bessie on a leash when you arrive. All the dogs are very friendly, but Bessie can be intimidating to people who are afraid of dogs.

We also have two chickens and two guinnea pigs.
