He has extended his home to various critters, including skunks, foxes, snakes, two sons, a daughter, a Labradoodle, Charlie, two Maltese, Violet and Willy, puppies, birds, and an occasional raccoon. Dr. D enjoys being outdoors, bird watching, hiking, fishing, and eating granola when given free time.
