Just spent some time in the tent with the boys. This is my first entry in these journals, so allow me through text to introduce you to my two classic males, Gizmo and Grizzly. They are 6 months and 4 months old respectively. We have an 8' x 8' tent we house them in 24 hours a day. They have all the amenities they deserve, from tree branches, several pouch choices, glider buffets at night and treats throughout the day. We get lots of barks of excitement in the mornings and hours upon hours of sugar snugglin' during the day. We usually let them sleep uninterrupted until noon then they are either in my pocket, around my neck in a pouch, or or simply laying on my chest if I am in a reclined condition. I am disabled thanks to a long battle with cancer, and these two young fellas are the best medicine I could ever have got for myself as well as my wife.
Back to the tent time....Sat with them for an hour or so. They are full of energy and ready to play! Gizmo, at times, is a little standoffish. He has had a few owners prior to us that never handled him. they just used him for the aww factor. Not us. We don't consider ourselves their owners. I have 3 human children and 2 glider kids. i am the Daddy to all 5! After hand feeding them both some eggs, cereal mixed with a bit of honey, a couple of bits of corn, and a healthy drink of bottled water, it was time for them to burn up the wheel and head to the pouch for a power nap! I am not sure if anyone else's babies do this, but mine like to play like crazy then nap for a bit before starting all over again. Now its time for me to try to get a few minutes of sleep before I get to do it all again. I will check back in often.
