Since I'm off work this weekend and spending time at home with the hubby and our "zoo," I thought it'd be a good day to catch everyone up to speed on our little family of animals and there stories. Because everyone loves cute and fuzzy animals, right?
Rosey is a 1 and a half year old yorkie. She was given to Sean by a friend when his Crohn's was really out of control and he had to stay in the hospital for over a week. We call her "angel pup." She is sweet but definitely as sassy one.
Zues is our newest addition. He is a 7 month old Dorkie (yorkie/dachshund). A coworker of Sean's mom couldn't keep him so she was going to surrender him to a shelter. Obviously being the animal lovers we are, we couldn't let that happen. Two days after we had him, he fell really ill and we took him to the vet. It turns out he had parvo. He was hospitalized for 4 days until finally the vet decided he was homesick and couldn't make him eat because of it. So, they released him on outpatient care. That night, he ate and we knew he was going to make it. To this day, he is the silliest, most playful pup.
We bought Gus at Petsmart a few months ago and he was a semi-impulse purchase. Our hamster Hera had died and we went to get a new hamster but we walked out with him instead. Gus thinks he's a dog. At first we were worried about not buying him in a pair since guinea pigs usually do better with a buddy, but Gus is absolutely happy with his dog friends. Whenever any of the pets come up to the cage, he sticks his nose out and wheeks and wheeks.
Hercules is our little syrian hamster. We went into Petsmart for a Guinea pig bowl, and walked out with him, only because he was the cutest thing ever. He has a marking on his back that kind of looks like a lightning bolt too.
He is a blue and purplish beta named after the television character. I can't get a picture of him because he is a fast swimmer.
Annnd that's the clan! What pets do you have?
