    He/she is the one on the left, the one behind it is the other BO. far right is RIR, the two light headed are the Sagittas and the SLW is hiding in the back...

    That's gotta be a roo...

    Well that's OK, I was actually beginning to think that five would be a better number than 6 anyway! My parents just lost their roo so this will be the replacement!
