Dusty, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dusty
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: Virginia, USA
   Some of Dusty's favorite things are: her dust bath, running/hopping in her chinchilla wheel, trying to get to areas of the house where she is banned, and getting rubbed on her chest and chin.

   Dusty got her name from what she first did when I went to get her from the pet store. Even though she had not seen a dust bath (which I had brought with me), or the glass bowl the bath was in, she immediately jumped in the moment she saw it.

   Her major dislike is having "nasty dirty human hand oils" on her fur. She's very particular about her fur. She'll bathe the moment she is set down after being handled.

   She's sitting in her favorite spot, the dust bowl.
