LOL...I remember the first time we put harnesses on Frodo and Sam, we basically got the same reaction. With Gizmo, he came already used to walking. Now we take all three outside almost every night...usually after 9:30 when it is dark and cooled down. They LOVE it. We live in a townhouse complex with 250 units and there is lots of grass for them to frolic in.
We just went to our first annual ferret picnic in Burnaby yesterday. I don't think I was amazed that way before...there must have been sixty or so ferts there! We had races, games, raffles, 50/50 draws. It was absolutely awesome. I am just sorry they only have it once a year! I will post a link to my picturetrail account as soon as I have all the pics there.
