   Introducing Jackson Haberman. His aliases: "His Honor, the Sherriff, Dr. Wilford Bubbles, Esq. Sr.", Big Fatty, Mr. Fatty.

    On a wintery, pleasant day in Los Angeles, we headed out on the road. North. It was going to be a long and treacherous drive through dense fog, at night, on a dusty highway. Why would we be doing this? Two beautiful reasons, one of which I'd like to share with you now.

    This is Jackson. We adopted him and his son, Splash, from a rescue all the way up near San Francisco, about 600 miles from where we live. We found them online at a shelter, Cavy Spirit.com. Once we saw Jackson, we knew we'd have to go.

    Jackson is feisty, smart and mischevious. We're pretty sure he tries to hypnotize us with that white fin on top of his nose. However, no matter how much trouble he likes to get into, like turning over his igloo, burrowing under the fleece in his cage, we can't help but love him and Splash (the mellow one). We can't imagine our lives without them.

   Here is a video I made for his 1st birthday.
