This month I had 4 baby pups shipped in from Camarattery
in CO! Two are brother and sister, both a lovely dark Russian Blue
Irish dumbo. I'm thrilled to have RBs in the rattery again! The other
female is a Siamese double rex dumbo and her brother, an agouti burmese
rex dumbo. They are so adorable! Thank you Amy!
Happy New Year! I hope 2013 will be a great year for
everyone, and another great year for my rattery.
2012 ended on a good note with a couple of successful litters after
a dry spell of no females getting pregnant.
I have made plans for the 2013 breedings, but like always they are
I have created a Facebook MWR
group for my adopters to share their rats' photos, stories and
look for advice! If you have a FB account, I hope you'll join us!

Finally, some news to report! I gave myself a birthday
Today I drove to NJ to Farmhouse Rattery. Kate and I have been talking
for several years, so it was wonderful to finally meet her and her
family. And I am thrilled to have brought home 2 sweet males, a Seal
pt Siamese and a Burmese Self to add to my rattery. Thank you Kate!
I bought a laptop! I finally had enough cash plus a
staples' card to purchase it. Nearly 2 months without a computer was
driving me nuts! I hadn't been able to upload pictures and unable
to work on my 2 cients' websites.
I drove to Canada to pick up 2 new rats from Ratterie-des-3-Rives.
A Cinnamon hooded male and a Russian Blue variegated dumbo female!
They should make nice additions to the rattery. I lost my last cinnamon
months ago so am glad to have another in the rattery.

WOW, it's been such a long time since I updated the
I finally graduated from UNH at Manchester in December. Hurrah!
I had my surgery in January and am healing very well. I am just now
able to slowly resume some of my normal activities. Guess that means
I won't have a good excuse to get help in the rattery from my daughter.
Ok, I am officially sick of snow! I don't participate
in outdoor winter sports, etc, so I am anxiously awaiting for spring.
This snow bank is actually 8 feet high.
We had a little melting over the past week, so the bank
is now just below my car's roof. Unfortunately, today we recieved
another 3 inches. :-(
There hadn't been any litters for what seems like a
very long time, as there were very few in 2010. However, I hope that
will change this year or I will lose a couple of lines. The year has
a good start with 2 litters on the ground now. Other pairings have
been made recently so keeping fingers crossed the females were not
too old to have their first litter.
In 2010 I had been training my dog, Drako in narcotic
search and attended a protection seminar by a well-known trainer.
Drako loves to work and performs extremely well.
On the other hand, my daughter hit a snag with Xena's
behavior in agility, so they did not start competing last year. :-(
Hopefully it'll be straightened out so they can get out there this
