Ron and LA outside


Best known as the characters of Mom & Dad, Ron and Leigh Anne Florence have been best friends, business partners and most importantly, happily married for 24 years. They both love dogs, traveling, music, walking, and sports - especially the UK Wildcats! Mom has a Master's Degree in Music Education from Murray State University. She loves playing the piano, reading, and spending time with Dad and the doggies. Dad has a degree in Industrial Arts from Western KY University. He is an incredible woodworker, a successful athelete, and huge University of KY wildcat fan!

Woody 2023


A black and tan miniature dachshund from Kentucky. Woody is known for his lovable personality, his pure innonence, and his knack for getting himself into quite a few pickels! He loves playing with Chloe, going for walks with Mom, and going to town on a good chew toy. His favorite thing is spending the day in schools and inspiring fellow Kentuckians. This is the third generation Woody. We pay tribute to the original Woody and Woody 2. 

Fun Fact: This little guy came from Breckinridge County, KY. His breeder was in one of our school assemblies when she was a student at Hardinsburg Elementary School!

Chloe Lodi


A red-headed miniature dachshund and best known as Woody's sister. While the character of Chloe is sensible and level-headed, the Chloe at home can be the family's rebel rouser, always providing a good laugh. 

Like Woody, she is the 3rd generation Chloe, following the original Chloe and Chloe 2, who paved the way for her.

Fun Fact: In September of 2022, Chloe (along with Woody and older sister CeeCee), appeared on America's Funniest Home Videos. The clip featured Chloe being her hilarious self.

Roper and wieners


Roper is a Chocolate Labrador Retriever. Although he started out smaller than Woody and Chloe, he kept growing and growing and growing... Now he weighs more than Mom. He is currently working on his AKC Good Canine Citizen certification as well as his Novice Trick Dog certification. He loves splashing water all over the floor, catching his Frisbee, jumping over hurdles and playing Fetch. He will play 24 hours a day! 

Fun Fact: Roper will not eat dinner until Mom or Dad prays and says Amen.

CeeCee tongue


CeeCee is the oldest of the canine siblings. Although she is a red-headed miniature dachshund, now her face is mostly gray - but she's just as beautiful. Her real name is Chloe Christmas: Chloe since she is Chloe 2 and Christmas since she was born on Christmas Day. Cee Cee was the second generation Chloe and spent many years traveling to schools. Around the age of 9 she decided to move into an office role and pass the traveling off to a younger Chloe.

Fun Fact: Chloe has lost some of her front teeth, so now her tongue hangs out most of the time!



You know the ol' saying "Which one is not like the others?" Well that describes Matilda, or Tillie for short. A black cat with gold eyes, Tillie spends most of her time outside in the field, hunkered down, hunting mice. When she does venture in the house to take a break from hunting, she runs as fast as she can to the basement to escape her canine siblings!

Fun Fact: Although her name is Tillie, we've always called her Scooter. And before you ask, no, there's no reason for that name.
