The Pets Of Landis Family Farm

Well I have not officially introduced all my furry and feathered kids yet so I need to get to it.
You may have caught pictures of them in previous blogs but now a time dedicated to them.

Aspen our Old Man - He is a 14 yr old Husky and the sweetest dog ever! He found me when I was in college at Shippensburg. He was a stray and ended up staying and has been with me for about 12 yrs.

Daisy is our Queen - She is a beagle spaniel mix adopted from the SPCA at the age of 8. She is now 12 yrs - Favorite past time is to hunt for vermit and bark at squirrels and bunnies

Max is our youngest at the age of 10 yrs. He was also adopted at the SPCA at the age of 3. He is a Fox Red Yellow Lab. He wants to be with you all the time and will eat anything in sight that he can get to.

Tiger is our alpha animal of the house. He is also our cuddle buddy and the only pet that sleeps in our bed. He has a friend Little Black (a little black cat) but she is quick and sly and I do not have a good picture to post right now.

Houdini is my Muscovy Duck - He is 3 yrs old and full of spunk. He does not like dogs and will peck the heck out of them if he gets the chance. He has battle wounds from going after Max. Houdini thinks he is a dog and follows me around. He will use the doggie door if he gets a chance.

Parrot is my favorite little rooster. He is named parrot because he was always squawking as a chick. He will sit on my shoulder and likes me to hold him. He will however go after the kids if I do not round him up he figures they are fair game. He is a BB Red OEG (Black Breasted Red Old English Game Bantam) and 3 years old.
Zorra is Parrot's mate. She is also 3 yrs and a OEG bantam hen. She is a wonderful mother to her chicks. She is the size of a pigeon.

Skunk is my Jersey Giant Rooster and he is 3 yrs old. He is a big boy but so gentle. He is a good rooster and protects his girls and finds them treats.

Love Heart (Barred -Black and white) is 2 yrs and one of Skunks girls. Lucy (black) is 1 yr and one of the girls.

Well there are a few more birds too. Stop by and see everyone sometime.
