Kodiak & Appa (Ragan Snead)
Hello, my name is Kodiak. I am 10 years old and my favorite things to do are nap and lay in the sun (also napping). I still play on occasion… if I feel like it.
Hi! My name is Appa and I am Kodiak’s new little brother! I love to run, jump, and play all day! I am growing really fast and will be just as big as Kodiak soon! Yay!
