The other day, DH and I visited the neighbourhood pet shop just to visit the dogs there, and DH was enamoured by a small little hamster that kept standing on its 2 hind paws and looking upwards till it fell over backwards! It also kept running around the tank at top speed.

The result? We bought it and another one to keep it company. We named the funny fast one Speedy (Gonzales) and the other one (who likes to eat) Hamtaro.

Meet Speedy:


and Hamtaro:


Ain’t they cute?
