Dewey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dewey
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Black tail prairie dog
Home: Brescia, Italy
   This is Dewey, my sweet male prairie dog. He always climbs his cage when I come into the room, just to greet me and to receive some cuddles. He loves cuddles. Especially when I caress him on his throat (he usually falls asleep while I'm caressing him ... And then it is really difficult to wake him up! Sometimes he tries to cuddle the cat, rubbing his nose against the cat's nose.

    He's very curious, and also capricious: when I've got something in my hand, he absolutely wants it, and he makes every effort to get it, he always tries to catch it with his little fingers and to take it away from me. Well, it is just my fault: I've spoiled him!

    Dewey loves two things more than anything (and they must be always in his cage): his wheel and food. When he's not running on his wheel (and I'm not joking, he uses it so much that he literally melted three of them, breaking the metal) he's eating. He especially likes pumpkin seeds and strawberry candies (fatty one!).

    Well, maybe he's not perfect ... But I think that no one is just like him: he's my funny, sweet, little joy!
