Pocket Pets

Sunday, January 25, 2004
This weekend at Traders Village there were dog breeders all over the place...so we got to see a ton of adorable little puppies!! But the breeder that kept my attention was the one selling Sugar Gliders. I had never seen one of these things before - it was so cute, and so tiny!! I held one for the longest time. The first one was very comfortable being held and climbed all over me - the other was scared and spent most of the time squeaking at me until he got used to being held!! After that he curled up in a tiny little ball in my hand and snoozed!!! I couldn't believe how popular these little guys were when I went surfing for info on the net. There are breeders everywhere. Apparently this is the latest exotic pet trend or something! And not cheap either - these little guys were going for $180 (including cage and food).
