This Calico has 2 modes – Lazy with a sunbath or crazy possessed cat. Lilo has a unique ability to sit beside you and judge you for every action you take. She is only cuddly when she wants to be and will tell you that by either bringing you a toy while literally YOWLING at you or calmly sitting on her “petting mat”. She keeps a close eye on the CIO to ensure the Netragard hackers can hack and that the IT infrastructure is purring.
German Shepherd energy multiplied by puppy energy is a formula which evaluates to one fluffy handful. Even when she is napping, that calm moment is just the silver lining to the storm cloud that is the true reality of the situation – the dog is just on the charger, preparing for the next wave of furry fury. Catch her scanning the yard for unauthorized deer or interrupting video calls with a demand for attention. Other hobbies include sniffing metadata from all delivered packages and laying on vents to convert an HVAC system into a pet hair distribution system.

Atticus the mastiff and Titus the mighty king. Atticus and Titus are brothers with very different traits. Atticus is all 117 pounds, red, with a tongue that’s too big for his mouth. He loves staying up late and hates getting up before 11. Atticus is absolutely in love with his dad and “accidently” falls onto his lap any chance he gets. Titus is 170 pounds of pure, high-energy bullmastiff. He doesn’t understand personal space, will lay or sit on you any chance he gets, and will always greet you with one of his toys (or your own shoe). Both of the boys are protective of their territory and family, especially if there are wild turkeys around.
Almost cannot capture a picture because he does not stop moving – but – Toby will do anything for food showing off his Netragard spirit for a treat! His nose is his best friend and worst enemy sniffing out foxes, coyotes, suspicious packages and emails! He sleeps as hard as he plays, as do all Netragardians!
Gentle giant who loves her daddy and misses him when he is off hacking for Netragard! She always has her protective eye on everything! Her snores are as loud as her barks but she always gives the biggest (wettest) kisses.
