(I got my first ferret, Sugar Bob, way back in 2006. I was going through old files yesterday, and found this little story I wrote about him. It brought back such happy memories, I just couldn't resist sharing it with you.)
Much as I adore my baby ferret, he does seem to have a knack for getting into trouble. He wants to explore everywhere and everything! And trying to crochet when he is running around is next to impossible. Case in point...
One afternoon, I was deep into a project, when hubby decided Sugar needed some time out of his cage to play. Sugar seemed distracted with his toys, so I thought I was safe to continue with my hook and thread work. The next thing I knew, I felt a little 'thump' on the couch:
"Hi Mom! Whatcha' doing?"
"Heeeyy, isn't this MY blankie?"
"Anything good in here?"
"No? How about here?"
"Whatdaya mean, no? Come on, Mom, you're no fun!"
"Oops... Ummm... Mom? Help! My head is stuck!"
"I'm so embarrassed..."
"Come on, Mom, put the camera away, please?"
"I'll never live this down."
We lost Sugar Bob to diabetes two years later. He won a place in my heart the first time I held him. He lives there still. I miss you, Sugar!!
Thanks for letting me share my sorrow and joy with you!
