The Animals at Huseby
Down in the kitchen garden you will find the Stephens’s dog house, where in the past, pugs and other small furry dogs of different breeds used to run around. Nowadays it’s the peacock and hens that strut around in the nice little yellow octagonal house. The gang now living in the old dog’s house include:
The drama queen and hypochondriac of a peacock. Has somewhat of a limp from an injury he suffered in his youth, but if ask him yourself, it occurred as he tried to save a beautiful maiden from fainting. For the most part he struts around on steady legs, but when he does not get what he wants, he limps more than usual.
The Huseby hens
Together with Albin live a group of Huseby hens, a breed that Florence really liked and kept at Huseby during her time. They are back again in to groups, led by the cocks Karl and Greger. The hens lay small eggs and sometimes they turn into very cute chickens.
The Huseby dogs
The dog Tutti works at Huseby and is the dog boss. Tutti and the other dogs helps their colleagues with a little of everything around the area. Sometimes they works at the castle, but you can also find them in the garden or at the office in the Old Forge where they runs things.
