Anyone in here ever owned or currently own prairie dogs. My family used to have 4 of them. I miss our prairie dogs more than any other pet I've ever had (and we've had quite a few, especially exotics). They craved attention, loved to be held, and loved to run around our house. Nothing can replace the "yeehaw" greeting we used to get from each of them every time we walked through the door (or opened a soda can for some reason lol).
It just sucks that some jackass in Illinois didn't properly quarantine his prairie dogs from his Gambian rats which were carrying a disease and they got people sick, now it's illegal to sell prairie dogs as pets.
(not actually ours, unfortunately I don't have any good pics of them anymore
