Our beloved Dusty (in his prime). He was such a ham.
Our beloved Dusty has winged his way to Rainbow Bridge this morning. His cancer had become so bad it invaded his left kidney, causing it to swell twice its size and his spleen was severely enlarged.
Dusty was born on Halloween 2004, at the Marshal Ferret Farm in New York. He was so small when Sarah purchased him she almost took him and Storm back, but Petco told her she had a ferret before and took very good care of him. A lady that had ferret shows at Petco told her to purchase some baby food, it was turkey with gravy and give it to them plus their regular food, this worked wonders.
His favorite food was Gerber's turkey! And he always cleaned his plate.
Dusty was a very nice and lovable guy, he lost his brother a few years ago to the same thing. Sarah purchase Logan about a year and three months ago to be buddies with Dusty and he tolerated him but never really played with him.
Dusty had a thing for people's shoes.
And he loved to play in plastic bags, too.
Dusty wasn't too active until he had his coffee.
Everything that came into our house had to be Dusty approved.
Sarah, about a week ago purchased Gibson to play with Logan and this has worked out fine. Dusty on the other hand did not like Gibson and would chew on his neck. I think Dusty only did this because he did not feel well. We called Dusty "The Grumpier Old Man".
The vet kept Dusty and put him in the freezer at her clinic, we will go and pick him up in the Spring to bury him beside his pal Storm and Skippy. Speaking of those two, I can only imagine what a reunion there must of been today when they saw Dusty coming, they probly are still chasing one another.

Goodbye old friend it has been a wonderful five years, we love you and will never forget you, we have such fond memories captured on video and photos. Later I am going to do a post on Logan and Gibson we will include pictures of all three of the ferrets. Dusty might have been a ferret but he was a member of our family, he received the best of care and lots of hugs and kisses.
