I'm pet sitting my nephew's puppy and sugarglider. Very interesting couple of days with the dog at foot and the sugarglider wanting some attention. (Why would one want a sugarglider?) But, I'm enjoying the change of pace!

That sugarglider is an interesting animal, for sure. Have fun pet sitting, Ironia! :dog:

I missed this. I know the sugargliders really need a special diet. I saw a court case on it before and as cute as they are---just let me have a doggie.

I know -- but the sugarglider wants to interact also! Very alert!

Are they? That is great. Can you hold them?

You can, but I didn't want to. They really like to run up and down you.

That is the same way with a feret. My grandaughter had two and used to insist I hold them. Not something I enjoy because in reality those pets are like rodents.

Well, I'm dog sitting again. We are concerned because the dog is loveable but very skittish. I even have to chase him to take him outside for his walk. Very strange. He is a year old. But we are enjoying the change in pace!

I believe because he is still so very young that he hasn't matured enough to be confident in new handlers or situations.

Be vary careful to keep him on leash though.
