Bobo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bobo
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Prairie Dog
Home: Cranston, Rhode Island, USA
   Bobo's my pet prairie dog. Here's a shot of her sneaking some of the cats' food one day when I let her run around the apartment. Bobo's very outgoing. Whenever someone comes into the apartment, she immediately runs over to the side of her cage to check them out, and to receive a belly rub. Whenever I come home, she always greets me with a welcome bark. She's friendly to everyone, and the cats love her because she grooms them when they nap on her cage. She really only knows two "tricks". When I rub my fingers together, she stands on her hind legs so I'll rub her nose. And, once I do that, she rolls backwards onto her back, so I can rub her tummy. As for games, the only one she likes to play is "let's hide in the couch and watch Daddy go crazy trying to get me out," when I let her run around the apartment. She's probably the friendliest pet I've ever known, getting along well with both cats, as well as any person I introduce to her.
