Rootie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rootie
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sable Ferret
Home: South Haven, Michigan, USA
   This is Rootie, he is a sable ferret. He is almost three years old, and is our treasure! Rootie Lives in South Haven, Michigan, which is on the shores of Lake Michigan. He likes to explore - and be a part of whatever we are doing. You can see he was "helping" me at the sink in the small photo.

    Rootie is like our child. He loves to visit the beach and will lay in front of the door waiting and pouting until we give in, and off we go! It's so fun to see him scamper across the sand leaving little ferret tracks as he goes! He is so much fun. This picture was taken near dusk, and it is surprising how well he was blending in with the sand in the fading light. He loves to play and he has us laughing constantly. He does sometimes slow down enough to collapse on a lap, and do his flat ferret impression.

    Rootie is also a slipper thief. So our feet are always cold. But that's a small price to play for the laughter and love he brings us every day in return. (And besides, we found where he usually hides them, so our feet don't need to stay cold for too long. But then the game begins again ...)
