I have been wanting... wait, no.. I have been LONGING for something for the lonnnnnnngest time.
The following pictures show how badly I wanted that something. They were taken on 06-24-2010, TWENTY TEN!!
Mum took me to PJ Pets. I walked by the stinky section (mum: stinky = puppy), never looked back,
I even ignored the K-I-T-T-I-E-S when mum told me to "leave them",
I headed straight towards my target,
Past the big ferret cage with lots of stinky ferrets with their feet sticking out,
And I parked myself in front of the ONE and ONLY thing I wanted,
Yes, a GUINEA PIGGIE!!!
Okay, so you get the idea,
However, Evil Mum NEVER GOT ME ONE!!!!
(mum: Sunshade's obsession towards small animals go through stages, she is now in the Guinea Pig stage having gone through the hamster and rabbit stages.)
Fast forward to a year later (today). After my acupuncture appointment, mum took me to a pet store. I once again picked out the Guinea Piggies from the rest of the small animal windows,
I once again told mum how much I really wanted to have MY own Guinea Piggie.....
Look at what she got me..........
Does this look like a Guinea Piggie to you?
It looks more like a mini-Georgie don't you think?
At first, I thought MY Georgie was BACK!!! So I went to say HI to him,
But I soon realize he was NOTHING like MY SuperGENTLE Georgie.....
I asked mum why didn't she get me a guinea piggie......
And moreover, why did she get me a MEAN bun bun?
He totally hurt the SuperDALE's feelings.....
And the SuperDALE normally takes no crap from anyone you know?
D-Guy comforted me.... maybe he'll get me a guinea piggie and make the mean bun bun nice?
D-Guy named him, because he wanted to. So the mean bun bun's name is Juice. Remember in my Stanley Cup Playoff post, I wrote about a Canucks Defenceman Kevin Bieksa whose nick name was Juice?
Well the mean bun bun came 10 minutes before Kevin Bieksa scored the overtime goal that advanced the Canucks to the Stanley Cup Finals. So D-Guy thought "Juice" was going to bring them good luck (proven very wrong, should have known!!!).
Kevin Bieksa is known for his ruthlessness, and yup, that's definitely Juice. Like how Georgie was Father Teresa. (mum: Sunshade, Gandhi would have been a better analogy...)
So this is Juice.....
I'll just wait here until either I get a guinea piggie or Juice decides to be nice to me,
Even though Juice was mean to me, I still protect him from STINKY and got mad at STINKY when I wasn't sure what he was trying to do. You can see it on STINKY's bloggie.
(mum: Sunshade pinned Jaffa twice because, well, Jaffa didn't really have any previous experience with small animals, so he was acting a little fixated with LOTS of uncontrolled excitement.
If you are wondering why we got Juice. Well, it's because Derek had been telling me that maybe I should get Sunshade a guinea pig seeing how fascinated she was by them. I thought, guinea pigs, rabbits, same thing. Since I really liked Georgie, our late Flemish Giant rabbit, I thought if I was going to get another small animal, I wanted another Georgie. I had assumed that once the rabbit is home, Sunshade will become just as interested. Boy was I wrong.... I really should have known. Sunshade is very specific. She LOVED her Georgie, but that doesn't mean she will love any other rabbit. Just like how she loved her old car, and would protect it, but could careless about our new car, even after 4 years. Anyway, so now I have a rabbit (that Sunshade doesn't care for) that will grow to be 20 lbs! He was 7 weeks old in those photos.
The Tupperware container is his temporary home as I'm trying to litter box train him, so I don't want to give him too much more space than the litter box. I'm not rabbit trainer, so I don't if this is the proper way to litter train a rabbit... It worked with Georgie though....)
