On July 29, 2001, Jordan took a husband.
Welcome to Nuncio--billed as "the
kissing dwarf lop!" According to his fosterer from HRS Chicago,
Nuncio has quite affinity for sniffing mouths. Lois, HRS Chicago director,
figured this needy (albeit neutered) guy would pair well with our
spayed Jordan. Lois hoped that he'd react with "Oh...Big Mama!" to

her (well, when she wasn't mounting him). The good news, however was
that they didn't fight at all--which by most counts is a "love at

chasing him when they were in her cage area, but after that, they've
