I love rats! Since adopting a pair of rats I am a happier person. Any pet can bring joy and companionship to a human being. As Anatole France once said, “Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
Pierce's Pogs is a top breeder of quality African Pygmy hedgehogs in Massachusetts. She also breeds adorable Dumbo Dwarf rats. This month I worked with Julie Pierce to create a 2012 Critter Calendar. Combining her lovely photos and my design talents, we produced
a sweet calendar filled with inspirational quotes to raise money for a local animal charity. You can check out her Facebook page, “Pierce's Pogs.”
