|Cooper the giant poodle.|
First up is Cooper, an extremely friendly poodle. It's hard to tell from this angle, but Cooper is really tall. I'm 6'2", and I don't have to bend down to pet him.
|Karma, all bark and no bite.|
Next is Karma, a black lab mix. Karma is all bark and no bite. Whenever I ring the doorbell, Karma barks and barks. When my student's mom opens the door, Karma still barks and barks, which is her way of showing that she's happy to see me (or anyone else who walks through the door). Once the lesson starts, Karma curls up nearby. If she sits close enough, she gets an occasional scratch during lessons.
|Knox, friend to all.|
Knox is another black lab. Knox thrives on attention. I'm his best friend until somebody else walks through the door. During lessons, Knox will sometimes butt in, just to let us know he is available if we would like to scratch his ears.
|Miso, the dog-like cat.|
Miso is a cat with the soul of a dog. He actually seems more dog-like than the dogs in the house. Unlike most cats, Miso will come when you call him. Miso will sometimes try to climb into a lap, regardless of the fact that we are each holding a guitar.
|Pepper, shaggy and elusive.|
|I'm Poppy, pet me!|
|I've decided you're okay.|
Now pet me.
|Rosie, world's friendliest dog.|
So those are most of the critters on my route. I'm adding several students to my roster this month. I'm looking forward to meeting more furry friends.
