Napoleon the alpaca and Smokey the llama from Mountain Peaks Therapy Llamas and Alpacas were brought to the street as a special thank-you to one homeowner whose llama-themed holiday display honored the organization and their famous llama, Rojo.

Rojo passed away in November. For 12 years, the llama served as a therapy animal at adult care centers, special-needs groups and schools in and around Portland and Vancouver. KOIN 6 News was at his official retirement party on Oct. 27.
