I'm sure maybe a few of you remember big bad Charlie boy. I've neglected him in recent posts, so I feel I must make up for it today. Maybe a couple of videos, pictures, and that should suffice for the time being. :) Charlie is just as much of a handful today as he was when we first got him- still a brat, that is. lols Prairie dogs go through what is known as rut. Rut is basically mating season, and their personalities are drastically altered due to hormone changes within their little bodies. We failed to fix him before his season hit (and you can't fix them during rut), so now we have an even bigger little monster on our hands. Oh wellsy! He certainly doesn't get out as much, since he's pretty cranky these days, moreso than usual. When spring arrives, he should be back to his calmer and less irritable self. He's still my sweet little boy though, and I love him regardless.
I'm sorry Charlie, but there's no way you can go back. A domesticated prairie dog can not go back, he would die and/or be killed. These are the thoughts I have when I see him staring out the window like this; it saddens me.
My b-i-l asked me today (after I'd taken these videos), whether he liked the dogs. This video should answer your question, lol. But for those who can't decide whether or not he seems happy to see her, trust me, he's not happy at all. He thinks he's pretty tough apparently; it's a good thing Chloe can keep her cool. ;)

We decide to take our Maya from this emergency clinic and transfer her to our veterinarian (since now the office is open) to do this procedure for our girl. We trust them with our pets, and though this may seem a stupid idea, I think it was an inspired one. Both of our little girls and our Maya have pulled through just fine. And fyi, we saved $1400.00 by taking Maya to our vet. We are so happy! I want to thank everyone for your prayers, every one of them counted. Thanks again everyone!!!
And this is our chunky little girl, though she actually weighs less than her sister. I would have taken a picture of her sister, but she was asleep and I didn't want to wake her. Plus, Maya needs her beauty sleep too. :)
I'll be sure to post lots more pictures when they aren't so fragile and I'm not so tired. Seriously, I only got 10 minutes of sleep, 15 at the most. I'm kinda dozing off just typing this.

And here is the same x-ray just closer so you can see the details. I don't think it's too hard to see, so I won't bother trying to point out the puppies. But yes, you can clearly see the two little skulls and their spines. Those are just the cutest alien-looking things I've ever seen, lol. :)

These boots are currently on sale for $29.99, which means I'll pay $14.99.
These may look metallic, but there aren't; they're just brown. :) They're regularly $22.99, and I can't wait to get them for only $11.49. Whoo hoo!!!
