Blackjack, Baron, the Pet of the Day
Name: Blackjack, Baron
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Dumbo Rex Rats
Home: Southwest Florida, USA
   Blackjack and Baron are rescued shelter brothers, and are famous for their soft, curly fur and big elephant ears. They were the only two bucks from a mainly "all girls" litter. Many people ask me how I tell them apart, and the answer is the markings on their belly. Blackjack has one big white spot, and Baron has two little ones. These boys are special in many ways; they are the sweetest things and let all the neighborhood kids handle them without even a squeak of protest. The brothers play a friendly game of pea-fishing every now and then, their favorite sport, which involves diving for frozen peas in a bowl of water. Baron is also able to jump remarkably long distances up in the air, hence the name. However, despite all their astonishing athletic abilities, there is never such a thing to Baron and Blackjack as too much sleepy-time or too many treats.
