I kept the first baby, but the triplets went to the pet shop for adoption. Dad used to enjoy holding a guinea pig on his lap (on a towel) and feeding it apple. When he was in the mood, he'd say, "Bring me a pig!" The 'pigs learned that apples came from the refrigerator, so whenever they heard the refrigerator door open and close, they'd start whistling because they thought a treat was coming.

Good Monday morning everyone.

Sorry I have been away so long. It has been a stressful few weeks. Both of my parents have spent time in the hospital. Mom spent 3 weeks in the hospital. Both are home now. Dad is doing ok. Mom is terminal. She has good days and bad days. The past few have been good. She insisted on taking care of both their funeral arrangements so we did that last Friday. She keeps fighting and looking ahead.

Thanks to everyone for all your prayers. Have a blessed day everyone.

I have had a few piggies too, even with my allergies. The allergies have gotten a lot worse over the years so I can't have them anymore. I am not sure why they say Guinea Pigs are not smart. I think they are very smart. They do recognize certain sounds and they know when their owner comes home and as you said, they knew the sound of the refrigerator. I love the way they whistle for things. The ones at work have certain whistles for treats. They will keep it up until I give them one. It's not like they live at our pet shop that long so they learn that real quick!

The babies are super adorable! Full of fur, eyes opened and you are allowed to handle them immediately!!!

I love hearing about your dad spending time with your Guinea Pigs!

Oh no! Sorry you had those experiences with your hamsters. Everyone I had were just as sweet as can be! The last one I had was a few years ago. His name was Cowboy and he would come to me when I called his name. I have never been bit by a hamster. He was sweet and would let me hold him without any problems. They will nibble your fingers if you have the scent of food on your hands. I just sold a hamster yesterday and made sure to let them all know to wash their hands before handling or they will nibble at the smell of food which can result in a bite if you smell good enough!

Hi friends,
Just wanted to say a quick, Christmassy hello

Unpacking & running errands today. Also having my car looked at.

Seawaters, thinking of you today. Good luck! Xo

Mgramsey, thoughts & prayers going out to you. God bless you & your family.

Xmas, good luck on your final interview! Go with your gut, and follow your heart , you'll make the right decision.

I kept a Christmas corner in my bedroom, where I left out my Mr. Christmas clock w/ the ballroom dancers, and my Mr. Christmas Grammophone. I decided they must stay out year round

Thinking of you all & sending hugs.

XO

Stacey

The sad news was a lady brought in her Macaw Parrot that just passed away. She was in a panic and was asking us would we possibly know what could have happen to it. We do sale animal medication and know a little about treating minor animal illness but we are not vets. We have helped her in the past with other animals so she just thought we might be able to figure something out. All we could really do is suggest taking the bird into a vet for a possible autopsy. She said the bird was perfectly healthy yesterday and suddenly passed away in the morning. The sad thing was is how she broke down crying and stroking the bird. I started to cry, I felt so bad for her. I love to work with animals and have thought, in a way, it would be great to work for a vets office. I know for a fact I could never ever handle that! Too many tragedies and I would be a wreck all the time. Those Macaws are like having a child, they have large personalities. I really felt bad for her and did the best to console her. I just hope she finds out what happen to that poor baby. It was such a beautiful bird!

Speaking of people bringing their dogs in, we do have several people bring their birds (on their shoulder), cats, pigs, horses and more with them. Fun place to work. I do better working in a place where mostly healthy animals show up but occasionally someone brings in a very sick animal and it just breaks my heart!
Sorry to hear about the macaw, we hand rear birds and keep all kinds, and i can tell you that i have seen the healthest bird fall of the perch, was it doing anything different not that i ever leaned it in my vet nurse training as lots of vets no very little about parrots, i had to talke a course to rear birds wondering did she notice any thing difference in its droppings there is ways of telling from that, as well maybe it eat something it should not have. its a hard one as a bird will hide its sickness , its comes from the wild thing in them (other animals wood pick on a sick bird in the wild) so its so hard to tell, like they do take heart attacks and they take a few bad diseases to which unless you know the signs they are hard to heal, as well it could have had a calicum def birds can not hold it long and given done can result in probelms again,
