The girls got a rat about 3 weeks ago. They named him Pip Squeak. He was all white with red eyes. They LOVED him. Sadly, Pip Squeak went to be with the Lord this morning. We're guessing he got a respiratory infection. He was so young still, it broke my heart. I actually cried. I don't do well with the loss of any of God's creatures (warm blooded, that is). We're going to get a new one this weekend and thankfully the girls did okay with the loss after bawling their eyes out last night.
