    This is "Rosie" she came in today and is settling in. She is one of Hector's babies from a Blue/Chacoan(Omega) x Red Pairing. She is about a year and a half over 36" and weighs 7.5lbs. I am very pleased with her.

    I am her 3rd and final owner. Gonna give her a couple days to settle in before I offer her some food. Planning on starting trust building with her in a few weeks.

    So Rosie has settled in and I have introduced her to Denver in small increments. Denver is very intrigued by her but she is ambivalent towards him. Sometimes allowing him to cuddle up and sometimes fend him off with a huff and a puff, lol. I plan to co-brumate them this winter in the hopes that come springtime nature shall take it's course.

    Rosie's a knockout. Sharp contrast. Nice going.

    Thank you Walter. She is a Beauty but she does not care for Humans. She will most likely never be a true pet however I will continue to treat her gently and give her the attention she will tolerate.

    Maybe other owners weren't so nice. My male started off sort of aloof. Roachback, huff, but not bite when i would pat his neck. Through persistance, and really in a short time, I won him over or wore him out one.

    Soon you'll get a clear idea of her disposition.

    I love that picture Jay! It makes Denver look like such a voyeuristic creeper! Want Woman! Lol, that's awesome! Hopefully she'll come around to you she comes from gentle stock.
