Diesel the fancy rat—"I bought Diesel as my Christmas gift almost 3 years ago. He was a nipper never been handled from PetSmart. After some long I during patience times he became better then a dog. Extremely loyal and now very well missed. He'd come when I call him while wondering through the house, laid in my lap during his last few months and nipple my hand as I rubbed his back. He never would get to far from me."

Flash and Gordon the dumbo rats at 3 months old—"These are my newest babies. My rat Diesel passed away after being here for 3 years. I bought Flash then went back the next day and got his childhood friend Gordon. They are so fun to watch as one pulls the blanket into their home one way but the other will be pulling it through the other side. They are getting used to me slowly but surely. My smile is back but they can never replace Diesel."
