Hello gerbil friends!

I have a few gerbils who are looking for new homes for the holidays, including the oh-so-fancy REX gerbils!

I will be sending all gerbils home this month with a complete cage setup as well. Tell your friends!

Hello gerbil friends!

Regrettably, it may be a while before I have pups available again. No matter how great our breeding plans are, gerbils often have different ideas and there isn't much you can do to persuade them otherwise. Earl and Dammit Donna have been together for a few months now and don't seem to want to have kids any time soon. I have a few more pairs in the works, but who knows when they'll decide to cooperate.

Thanks for your patience! Please feel free to reach out in the meantime and I can try to connect you with other local breeders

Well that was fast! New rescue boy was only with me for an hour before he got adopted! His new owners lost one of their gerbils today, so this guy will be getting introduced to a lovely older female once I'm satisfied he is healthy and ready to go.

His adopters have named him Rocky (thank goodness, I do not need another Brownie!)

Since he had his leg amputated, Unicorn has been having a bit of trouble scratching any itches. He was particularly cranky about one in his ear today so I tried to help him out

It's not often I get to visit adoptees at their new homes, but I happened to be in the area and Nolan's family invited me over!

Nolan's family rescued Gawain from an animal shelter, and got Nolan to be his friend. The two of them hit it off and are now living the dream!

Gawain was napping, but Nolan was happy to come hang out on the couch and socialize. He's very well trained!

Gerbils, as desert animals, spend most of their wild lives in tunnels and burrows underground. It's always fun to see them happily recreating those behaviors at home!

Reason #4381 that buying from a breeder is better than a store:

Accidents happen. Gerbils are still animals, no matter how cute/adorable/fuzzy/friendly they are. Sometimes they go and get themselves hurt, and how those situations are handled is a defining difference between responsible and irresponsible.

Responsible is driving 1.5 hours to the closest exotic animal hospital that takes emergencies.

Responsible is paying hundreds of dollars for emergency surgery, medication, and fluids.

Responsible is going through a medication routine twice a day, feeding special food, and making valiant efforts at applying warm compresses (admittedly, that last bit is hard and rarely works. A for effort).

Or maybe I'm just a softie. He probably didn't need the extra special flavored antibiotics I paid extra for. And he turns his nose up at the high-calorie food supplement in his bowl in favor of cheerios (dude that stuff is expensive show some appreciation!)

The bottom line is, this is what you support when you buy from a responsible breeder. I'm not just bragging about my own commitment, I know my fellow breeders would go to the same lengths and further if needed. When you buy home-bred gerbils, it's not just the pedigrees and the ribbons you're buying, it's love and a level of care you just won't see anywhere else.

Also, I am hungry and the gerbils ate all my money. Especially this guy.

My first year of breeding and showing gerbils has been a whirlwind. I have laughed, I have cried, I have made many mistakes and many friends.

So very thankful to the entire American Gerbil Society for the support and education I've received, and to my parents and landlords for indulging this crazy hobby.

Very excited for the years to come!

We had a great show! So many ribbons, but here are the highlights:

Jameson received 1st in CP-AOC
Storm received 1st in Spot
Renegade received BOS in Self-Black

HH Sprinkles on Top, "Sprinkles", received 1st in Self-Black (beating his sister!) which earned him his Championship, the first for Helluva Hullabaloo!

HH Mystery then took home Best in Show, another HH first! This leaves him one point shy of his championship

Overall, great show!!!
