Gricko, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gricko
Age: Deceased, Six years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Degu
Home: Serbia
   This 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.
