Comments

This year was a bit of a whirlwind; I was working on many different varieties and types. Towards the end of the year, I realized that it was just too much. I was having to breed too many litters and taking care of all the rats consuming all of my time. At the end of the year I started making plans to downsize and narrow my focus significantly. I chose the varieties I'd be working with (although later, I narrowed it down even more). Throughout 2008, I learned the ins and outs of the bloodlines I was working with, and crossed them to produce exactly what I was looking for. Overall type and temperament steadily improved.

This was a year of many firsts for the rat community in the region. Some of the most notable were the first harleys, first burmese, first dwarf rats, and first black-eyed siamese.
