Lexus and Skye
Lexus (left) has been Rod’s Greeter for just over 9 years. She loves to sunbathe, but is usually too tired to play anymore. She asks you to be gentle when petting her, especially on the belly because she’s a bit tender there. Lexus has handed the title of “The Official Greeter” over to Skye (pictured on the right) Skye is 7 years old and LOVES people, especially strangers. Don’t be alarmed if she jumps up on you lap and hangs out with you while you are waiting for your car- she is VERY friendly. If you don’t want her on your lap just give her a slight nudge and she will understand and not bother you anymore. Lexus and Skye both love people, but are not used to dogs and are afraid of them.

He has been working on cars with his dad who is also a mechanic, since he was a kid. He has lived in Ferndale his whole life. In his spare time he enjoys hiking and paint balling!
