    Default A Funny Story!

    My daughter got a chinchilla about a year ago and it was staying in the garage not being looked at very often. She got a new hunter/jumper pony for christmas so Wick my 3yr old boy wanted to know if he could have the chinchilla in his room, so we said yes. Well Grady has been very interested in the fur ball for the past few weeks. So she calls me at work and says "Glitter" ie chinchilla's cage is open and she can't find her! Well she studies the cat and it doesn't look like it has had a morsel. So she puts the cat up and continues her search. She goes in our daughters room and here comes grady holding the chinchilla in his mouth like he has a new prized trophy! Chinchilla was fine no scrathes only a wet back of dog slobbers! I think we my start a new business of rodent control for people that are for animal rights!

    My Grady pup is a frog dog , he has gotten VERY good at catching them.
    He is pretty tenacious, he figured out this morning how to get on the roof of the golf cart to get the dead birds that get put there ( to keep away from the dogs)

    You get about 50 more of those, and you could have a great coat! Honor loves kittens. He raised a feral cat.... he would carry it around in his mouth like the mother cat, set it down and wash it. To this day, they are best of buddies.

    Good boy Grady. If that had happened in this house there would be no prisoners.

    Exactly, same thing here, Im sure of it.....
    Except my Grady girl, Spirit. She'd probably be carrying it around whirling in circles, telling me how she found it and arent I proud of her. Shes a character,that one! Is Grady a goober too? This one keeps me in stitches.

    Chad you could be onto something here.
    Should I get a Chinchilla with the goal of Baker producing the 2012 9 month old Derby List dog again?

    I will call Bobby and see how many fur hats he has!
