Hello fellow prairie dog people. I wanted to share my love of the little furry bundles of happiness too. We have 2, a male and female. Maggie is around a year old and Franklin is about 3 months. They are amazing animals and they have allowed us to be their people...I adore the way they cuddle and snuggle with us. I have had many pets over the years and these guys are the best. Dedication to them is a must, but how could you not.... just look at them.:)
Im a lover of all things rodents and just learning about PD's. Ive owned numerous gerbils over the years and am a member of the American Gerbil Society I serve on the board of ethics. One of the sad drawbacks to gerbil ownership is their short lifespan although i have had several live past 4 years old. Ive been searching for a rodent with longer lifespan. Thank you for your useful information. Where are you located? I live in central Minnesota.
I have always been a massive fan of prairie dogs and am now looking into getting one. I have had rats for many years and I love the interaction and love that you get with them. Now it's time to get my prairie dog.
I hope that you remember me. I had Lilo and Stitch, Cassie and Leo and my sister Bonnie and I were members of a pd group with you.
I am in urgent need of your help. A friend of mine witnessed a pd being taken by an owl and they found 3 babies that were left behind. One has died and we need help with another one. He's not looking so good. I can explain all, with pictures if someone can contact me asap. I am on Facebook, Jeannie Martin, where you can message me anytime. Or email me at cassiereroni using yahoo.
I will continue looking for a way to contact you in the meantime.
I'm enamored by the PD's. keep up the good work Prairie Dogs are NOT VERMON. I REPEAT NOT VERMON.
I have always loved and continue to love Prairie Dogs I went to hershey park who has them in their new zoo park and they were definitely active and social
Your website and information you provide is an absolute blessing! I have a male PD about 4 years old and have done a lot of research, what could be found, and your website has proven to be the most resourceful I've come across thus far. Keep up the great work!
I need help :'(
I'm moving to California.... and I have a prairie dog and I'm so attached and vis versa! I've read about if a pd every got lost he will spend years looking for his family and of course California doesn't except them as pets "because their numbers are threatened or endangered in the wild, (2) because they pose a threat to our native fish and wildlife, agriculture or public health and safety." I don't understand, 21 states allow them. What can I do? :'(
thank you for all the information. This is a wonderful resource and I'm so happy we found you.
Hii am planing on getting a PD. but like with all my pets i like to give them the best. so i reshearning about them, and their needs. I live in Portugal. Sunny summer, rain in winter.

I love your website. It was very helpful to me in info about prairie dogs. They quickly became my favorite animal last September when I saw one in the pet store that belonged to the owners. I did heavy research and decided I wanted one of my own. I'm picking her up today and am so excited! I've named her ZuZu.
Thank you for all the helpful information!
My husband saw you on National Geographic on TV last night and told me all about you and the gophers. I wish he would have called me to watch. (I don't usually watch TV) I didn't know they played such an important role in the eco system, but then, man has disrupted that system for so long, how can we ever get back what has been lost?
Enjoyed your website...
Hope you check out the following page on Facebook:

Di, You have a great mission, and i applaud your efforts to be the caretaker of animals. The two poems i read were touching and powerful. So happy that we reconnected.
While we unequivocally agree that prairie dogs are indeed important to a healthy western ecosystem, the message of this individual sounds more like an endorsement for the cattle industry! The cattle industry would have you believe that ranchers are in compettion with wildlife, and support and participate in the massacre of wildlife, all in the name of "wildlife management". It is the profitable cattle industry that is responsible for the destruction of our ecosystems due to human consumption and demand.

steve says...Hello, I became aware of the importance of prarie dogs on a walk and talk with a ranger at Caprock Canyon SP. I just heard an interesting TED talk on the importance of hearding behavior on the restoration of grasslands, which may be of interest.
