Thank you for the info on the bedding. I also have aspen bedding, i bought two bags of aspen bedding just before my hamster died and i still have 1 1/2 bags of it left. so this way i can use it up. i also have the pine bedding, but i will give it to my godmother and she can find something to do with it. she raises rats, and her boyfriend works at the petsmart here in plattsburgh NY. i do have the guinea pig cage on a dresser, and even if my dog stands on his back legs, he can just barly see over the edge of the cage. but i'm hoping he will just sniff and then leave it alone and go lay down like he did with my hamster. i think the only reason he is being like this is because he is black lab, cocker spaniel (i think he is really brittany spaniel), and dachshund mix. dachshund were breed to go after field rats and mice and the cocker and lab were breed to hunt rabbits and other rodents i think. so maybe its because of his breeds? i really hope he just leaves it be, like he did with my hamster. he has always sleep in my room for the past 3 years now, i don't want to have to make him sleep in the living room because of this. but i also really really don't want him to hurt Junior. to my surpise my cat doesn't care at all, i think she might even be afraid. is there anyone who has had problems with they dogs and rodents?
