"The Owners of Two Portland Celebrity Llamas Are Feuding"

"And because he is a normal llama, and lives a normal llama life, I will never dress him up in costumes, hats, blankets or other coverings," McCool wrote on Facebook. (Rojo often appeared at events wearing a top hat and other accessories.) "So please do not ask me or him to perform these circus acts."

Joy says she made note of the remarks, but chose not to respond. Months later, though, tensions reignited when a resident of Peacock Lane decided to dedicate her holiday display to Rojo, who died in November. On opening night, McCool showed up outside the house with Caesar, posing for photos and speaking to local news. To Joy, it was a slap in the face that could no longer be ignored.
