Missing Our "Little Hamster Dude"

We had a sweet, unexpected snow day right after Thanksgiving. You may recall I posted a picture of Dayna showing the snow to our hamsters. That week, Humphrey was a little more affectionate than usual. He climbed right into our hands instead of waiting for us to pick him up. He ran up and down our arms and was his usual sweet self. 

On Friday of that week, he curled into a little ball, fell asleep to sweet hamster dreams, and never woke up. 

It was pretty heartbreaking for Dayna. We had no idea his days were getting short, and there really wasn't a goodbye. She did make a sweet resting box for him as we laid him to rest. Funny how a little rodent can work his way into your heart.
