Favorite Show Moments (from the AGS Yahoo Group)

Laugh: Up Bambi, Up!! Ha ha - unbelievable (Rebecca W.'s trained shoulder sitting gerbil)

"He made Massachusetts!" - amazing, but he really did (gnawed out of red construction paper and rescued just in time by a child visitor).

Cry: Someone put the sweetest rat write-up next to the "rodent round-up" exhibit rat cage.

I wanted to pass around the happy news that we have a new certified AGS judge and our very first Mid-Atlantic region judge: Rebecca Ward.

"Well, it's official! My little guy is definitely molting and he's a schimmel! It kind of cute that I have two pups who started orange and are in the process of molting, one molting in black ticking and one molting in white fur. I also have settled on names for my boys. The nutmeg is Mat, the mottled black is Perrin, and the schimmel is Rand. All three of them and Rafe seem quite happy. They shredded 4 or 5 toilet paper tubes but the box is hardly touched because they love it as a nest! And they all sleep together!"

"Is Bambi the one who got an Honorable Mention ribbon for climbing up and sittingon my shoulder (repeatedly) during his judging?" (I remember watching that.)
