Meet the Cast

Bingo became part of our family in January of 2013. She looks like a Jack Russel Terrier, but claims to be a mutant form of giant Chihuahua.

Twinky is a Rat Terrier adopted by Rick in July of 1999.  Twinky loves to eat and is on a seafood diet.  If she see food, she eat it.

Lucy, a Jack Russel Terrier, joined us in November of 2002.  Her hobbies include skateboarding, Frisbee and loud barking for no apparent reason.

Peewee T Poodle became part of our family in September of 2004.  He describes himself as brave, talented, smart, extra cute and modest.

Minnie joined us in December of 2006.  She is a Toy Rat Terrier about the size of a toy rat.  Minnie has graciously appointed herself boss of our entire household.

Ziggy, a Rat Terrier, joined us in August of 2007.  He has all of the qualifications to be a great circus dog.  Intelligence, energy, agility and a cute stumpy tail.

Cricket is the newest and youngest addition to our family and joined us in July of 2011.  She is a genuine pedigreed ‘Ring Tailed Fudgiepup’.

Rick Martin also plays an important role in that he drives the truck and can work the can opener. He also loves his doggies and they love him.

"I laughed my head off at a man with a trained-pooch act starring
'Chico the Wonder Dog,' billed as 'a mutant strain of giant Chihuahua.' "
