is Dude. He's a degu from South America and is three years old.
Dude and I live in Vineland, Ontario, Canada.
Dude is special because if you talk to him he will chatter back to
you just like he is carrying on a conversation with you. His best
friends are my two guinea pigs, Nicki and Ginger. He calls to them
and gets very lonely if he can't see them in their cage. Dude's
favorite activity is to run in his wheel. He puts a million miles on
that thing and has never been farther than his cage! His favorite
snack is a peanut in the shell.
Dude is a bit bigger than a large gerbil is the best I can do for
size. I think he must be related to the guinea pig in some way
because he has the same nose and face. My daughter wanted him
originally but he has ended up being mine now. He doesn't get out a
lot because he can go like lightening and be very hard to catch! He's
OK as long as you don't put him down. Not litter trained or, being a
man, even house broken! He is a lot of fun and I enjoy listening to
him sing his whistling song while he runs in his wheel which he puts
about a million miles on. He's going somewhere but we aren't sure
