Jerry the Chinchilla
I've had Jerry from just after he was born in 2004, after being persuaded to get a chinchilla by my then-girlfriend, who had seen one at the West Midland Safari Park earlier in the year and had fallen in love with them.  I had kept gerbils as a teenager, and a chinchilla was a more practical option than a dog at the time (and still is), so I agreed to this.    The relationship with Jerry has lasted longer than the relationship with the girlfriend (we agreed that I would have custody of Jerry when we broke up, which I felt was the best option for him). 
 
He's not the easiest of things to photograph; point a camera at him and most times he either runs off or comes over to investigate.  However, he has been photographed right from the beginning, and accepts the occasional photo session as the price for being waited on hand-and-foot.   He's also the most photographed pet that my family has ever had (I always felt that the family pets of my childhood were never photographed enough, especially my gerbils).   In restoring this collection, I have decided to use only my digital photographs of him as the majority are digital anyway and they tend to be better quality.   The only downside of this is that due to my compact not using EXIF and gaps in my records, I cannot give exact dates for the compact digital photographs.
 
As a rule, I won't put my personal photographs on this site; this collection is the exception.   I don't intend to make any of these available for general purchase, but am prepared to consider publishing requests.   This is a work in progress and will remain so throughout Jerry's lifetime.
