CASTLE ROCK, Colo. — Cody, the Teeny Tiny Alpaca, will be making a rare appearance this weekend at the Pacabuddies Alpaca Event and Fiber Arts Festival.

The festival takes place at the Douglas County Fairgrounds in Castle Rock.

The alpaca can be seen from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

While most alpacas are born at 15 to 20 pounds, Cody was born at only 6 1/2 pounds.

Small and weak, Cody struggled to survive. Overcoming illness and injury, Cody grew to be a healthy baby alpaca.

Cody’s story is the inspiration behind an award-winning children’s book written to help children who feel different or left out.

Her message, aimed at battling bullying and intolerance, teaches children to accept differences in themselves and others.

Cody resides at Silken Suri Alpaca Ranch in Castle Rock.
