This is Dumpling our squirrel...yes a real life squirrel. He is a damn terror but sweet!

 Facts about Dumpling:

1. Dumpling should be in the wild but due to being kept by humans he has no fear of dogs, cats, or people making him unable to be released. We are not the humans who kept him caged but he is a new addition to our animal rescue and probably live his life out here.

2. Dumpling craps alot.

3. Dumpling likes to use my ass as a trampoline.

4. Dumpling likes to use Joe's(dh) face as a diving board.

5. Dumpling is named Dumpling because as a running joke my grandfather told my children he was making them dumplings out of the local squirrels..gross but it was funny to see their EWWW faces.

Well there ya have it....Dumpling the fluffy tailed rat.

Cute little critter. My friend had a couple of racoons, bottle babies, kept them until they got mature and ran off. I have instructions on how to knit with unspun roving, it really is a neat way to make something, quick and feels like polarfleece, lightweight and cuddly.

awww what a cutey!!!! I love all furkids and have many myself, I am owned by 7 ferrets (only because 2 recently passed on to the rainbow bridge :( ) and 1 poodle and 2 cats. I have so many ferrets because I rescue the unwanted and sick :( your little baby is adorable and even tho hes not in the wild where he ``belongs`` he is now in a loving forever home where he now belongs and is loved, there is nothing better then a animal having someone love them and the rewards are far greater for us mere hoomans then they are for the sweet furkids ;) and when its time for them to go to the next place this is a poem I live by:

The rainbow bridge

Just this side of Heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so that they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt and maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing: they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; his eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

YOU have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together…
