  1. Rocky the wonder-pig!

  2. Another reason to hate PetsMart

    I have been posting flyers for the rabbit rescue I foster for the past few days--we need fosterers badly--and today I hit up the local pet stores.
    Pet Supplies "Plus" and Petco were awfully friendly and pointed me to the community bulletin boards.
    At Petsmart, however, my experience was the exact opposite.
    The manager didn't even glance at my flyer, she just shook her head "No, we don't let people put flyers up here."

  5. plug for my real blog.

    Tasha's Tails is a blog that I started about a week ago. My goal is for it to be a good resource without being a word-for-word regurgitation of GuineaLynx and CavySpirit. Of course, in full support of both, this is just my personal spin.
