Li'l Bear is a Cockapoo, and Dusty a Shorkie (Shih-Tzu / Yorkshire Terrier). Daisy was said to be a purebred Poodle, but she looks more like a purebred Bichon Frise,
Prancer (born February 14, 1999) came to live with us in June, 1999 from a private kennel in upstate New York, when she was 4 months old, respectively. Pictures of Prancer as a puppy can be found here.
Li'l Bear (born January, 2002) joined us in March, 2002; Curtis' manager had adopted Li'l Bear's mother from a shelter in Pennsylvania not knowing she was pregnant, and we adopted Li'l Bear from her. Pictures of Li'l Bear as a puppy, and his littermates, can be found here.
Daisy (born 2005?) was adopted from the Seattle Humane Society on November 29, 2008. They forget to put a hold on her, and we had to follow the mobile adoption center to a shopping mall in order to meet and adopt her.
Dusty (born January 30, 2010) lived with a colleague of Maryrita's until April, 2011, when his family could no longer take care of him. He was named "Hades" but we quickly renamed him "Dusty".
