There's a New Girl in Town

Once upon a time, there was a sweet hamster named Hamilton. He was a Christmas gift for our girls. He was sweet and personable and crawled right into our hands. Curious and full of life. But he wasn't full of life very long, and we had to say some tearful goodbyes.

But we still had sweet Hickory, who continued to warm our hearts with his funny ways. Like how he rolls over for us to scratch his belly. Or nestles into his favorite blanket on our bed and falls asleep while getting a "hamster massage."

Last weekend, we were contacted by the girl who sold us Hamilton. Her living situation has changed, and she needed a home for Bella (Hamilton's mom.) So Bella has joined our family. Of course, Dayna is still hooked on "H" names for her hamsters, so Bella is now known as "Hershey." She's pretty sweet, so the name fits. But Dayna will be quick to tell you she's like dark and white chocolate.

I also think Dayna is hoping for baby hamsters at some point...we'll have to wait and see about that.
