My new pet, a prairie dog!

He's just a pup at six weeks of age, but look at how he's already giving me the stink eye, lol. So far, he's already adjusting to me and the new surroundings. He really wants to explore the apartment, he's been begging me to let him out. He keep crawling into my hands hoping I'll take him outta there. I do, but I don't put him down like he wants; he's already a little character. And he's quite the climber too; he thinks he can fly, I'm worried he's going to hurt himself. Good thing the cage isn't too too tall. :) I have yet to decide on a name for him, maybe by tomorrow I'll have one that fits. So far I'm liking Digger and Charlie, but who knows what I'll decide on. I was just joking to my mom that maybe I should give him a name from Twilight, since I'm such a fan. Jasper, Emmett, Carlisle, Caius perhaps????



Look at that little climber, go doggie go!





I thought I'd get one with me holding the lil fella; you can see how big he really is here. I can already tell that he likes to have the back of his ears scratched. So cute!!!
P.S. If you didn't already notice, I added a poll to my sidebar to help me choose a perfect name for him.

He's adorable. I can't wait until Catalina is old enough for her first furry pet. The picture of him climbing is too cute!

Oh my goodness! He is the cutest thing I have ever seen! Seriously, how did you get a prairie dog?

I'd never heard of them as pets either, so when I saw an ad for them I just had to get one. LOL Most times they're taken out of the wild while young, very rarely there is someone who breeds them (this is difficult to do). If I hadn't met Thelma just a week ago, I don't know if I would have been interested. But she was so cute and funny, I knew I wanted one. :)

Too cute! I thought they were not allowed though. If so, I am not telling!
