Meet Autzen, Freedom, Glory, and Gary.

Sports Fanatic…
The Crabtrees are HUGE Oregon Duck fans, and the Ducks play in Autzen Stadium…Hence the name Autzen.

Wake-up Call…
He makes sure I get to work on time.  Once my alarm goes off, he gently (but continually) nudges my arm until I get out of bed.  He has replaced my snooze button.

Allison, Freedom and Glory

Patriotic Pups…gloryfreedom
Freedom was a rescue and was so excited to get out of her kennel at the shelter, celebrating her escape, that her name was Freedom from the start. I got Glory a few months later and her name had to match. If there was a third, he/she would be Spirit.

Nipping at my heels…
It is very important to them that they are at my heels as often as possible, and move with me. When I am traveling, they adopt my husband and that drives him crazy.

And, just so everyone reading understands we are a P.C. office…pro cat, I would like to introduce you to Gary. The cat who thinks he’s a dog.

Cat Burglar…
Gary had a cat door once. Another cat got in one night. I awoke to him jumping off the bed in a Scar vs. Mufasa re-enactment. Gary won.

Pull a rabbit out of my…
He can make rabbits, mice, squirrels, and birds disappear – and then reappear days later…elsewhere. He’s somewhat of a magician.
