||Deceased, Six years old|
is my degu, Gricko. Gricko died a month ago, he had a brain stroke. Why
was he special to me? The better question is, why wasn't he? He was unique
like no body else! Gricko was my first pet, I got him when I was a kid as a
birthday present. He was so small and fluffy ... although, he was not so
tame. After a week, he got used to his surroundings and he was running on the
terrace with me guarding him. Then, to my surprise, he stopped in front of my
legs and literally climbed up. He sat on my shoulder and looked around. I
stroked him and we became best friends. His black eyes were pure honesty and
every time I cried or I was stressed, he would make me feel better. He would
climb my legs and sit on my shoulders like he had the first day. It's like he
pulled out the negative energy from me. And that's why I loved him and I
always will. Because of what he was, because of his honest heart.
