Quentin also has 5 pets in his family.  “Two dogs at each of my parent’s houses and a girl cat at my dad’s. . . The dogs at my mom’s are Kyra and Kodiak (usually we call him Wilbur — I don’t know why his name is even Kodiak.)  At my dad’s the dogs are Kenya and Nita and the cat is Koko.”

I hope we can get to the bottom of Kodiak’s name.  Please let us know if you ever find out!
