Deja, they're illegal in the entire continental US right now due to the stupid Monkey Pox outbreak. (I say stupid because the prairie dogs didn't bring the disease to the states. They didn't cause it. An animal imported from Africa and improperly quarantined did. The PDs are just the victims. ) I've wanted one for a long time.

To answer your questions Deja:

I give mine Timothy hay as their main diet, and they get treats of shredded wheat, very small pieces of apple, carrots, and an occasional piece of fit and trim dog food as a special treat. They are not difficult to take care of at all, they just need extra attention, especially if you only have one. They are very social animals and will literally go insane if they are alone and not given enough attention.

A yahoo is a greeting. It sounds like "eeee ouuu", and it's VERY cute. My one girl, Karmen, is a real talker. She'll yahoo to almost everything I say. They are also very affectionate. I'll come home and snuggle with my girls and they seem to know when I've had a bad day. Karmen has reached up and patted my cheek with her paw more than once as if to say "it's ok mom, we're here for ya!" I can't imagine not having my girls!

Right now they are banned. The people that have them now are allowed to keep them but as far as I know selling them is still banned due to the monkey pox scare. PD's are getting a bad rap and it wasn't even their fault.

Still banned from selling them yes. Oh another really cute sound they make is an err err sound! That is the sound of a very contented pup! Makes me melt when they make that noise. I think they have me wrapped round their little paws!

I have three. They are right around 8 months old, but I've only had them for about two months. Their names are Chuby(cause he's really fat), Squealer(cause he's quite the talker), and biscuit(dunnoo..my sister named that one). They are my first ever PDs and I love them oh so much! I do not know how to sex them, so I am not sure of their sex at this time. The pet shop I got them from had not sexed them, though they said they thought they were all guys. Anyone know how to sex them?

get a book. there are slight differences that they show you in diagrams. Or, you can take them to a vet. I also reccomend getting them spayed/neutered, because prairie dogs are known to get territorial and testy when they are sexually mature.

[B]I used to have four, 2 males 2 females, 2 died but the 2 who are alive are the sweetest critters in the world. I hope they will soom mate and I will have more. They are such wonderful pets so friendly and personalities that melt my heart. I wish they would get rid of that stupid ban. You can get assult weapons much easier than prairie dogs. So how many people were killed by a prairie dog?

Oh Pixie, how I envy you. I wish my two had mated, but they didn't. I love them so much that the idea I may never be able to have another prairie dog again when mine do die breaks my heart.

I live in a city, they are always inside. I'd be too scared that someone might let them loose and they'd be hit by a car or truck, or some sicko would torture them to death.

Hi Casper,

Your homepage is beautiful. I'm the one who should be ashamed. I only speak English and I'm not so great at that either. We can thank U.S. public education. I've had to try to teach myself at times.

I am impressed with the fact that you do so well with English. That's superior European education. I've always admire Europe for being so open and liberal. We are so far behind over here. Looks like with George II in the Whitehouse for four more years we will go further backwards.

I understand your messages very well. Lots of people over here can't spell either, and I am lucky to have spell check on my computer, and I keep a huge dictionary next to my computer as well. I forget sometimes how to spell and I use either one to help me.
As for your beautiful web site, I apologize, I don't understand a word. But it is lovely to look at. I'd hate to ask you to go through so much trouble to translate all of it to me.

Sincerely,
Judy
