Aww, thanks Juno! Yes, my husband and I also hate the idea of having to go somewhere overnight or travel or anything that leaves our babies in the hands of anyone other than ourselves. We worry ourselves sick when that happens so we very rarely ever go anywhere. So I know what you mean!
I pasted a couple of quick photos here for you of our two boys. The first one, below, is the two of them posing in my computer desk drawer where they love to play sometimes, as it is right next to Mommy.
It is very hard to tell them apart in this photo as Achilles, our black and white hooded boy, is on the left and his white body is hidden by Maximus, on the right. Maxie is a black berkshire rat, so he is all one dark color except for his forearms and his tummy, which are a creamy white.
This photo, below, is a better shot of both of them. Achilles, our very fat squishy love bug, is on the right. He just loves to be loved! Maximus is on the left. He is our more skittish and nervous boy who always seems to have a slightly concerned look on his face. What a silly baby! He has never had a thing to be skittish or nervous about, but that is how he is, despite thousands of daily rubs, cuddles and kisses. I guess he was just born that way!
They are both just sweet boys and we love them as our children. Since we have no human children, we put all our parental instincts into them!
