Dobby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dobby
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Opossum
Home: Bridgeton, New Jersey, USA
   Dobby is special because she likes to be held and cuddled up next to you! She is not very playful but she likes to get in bed with us. The reason we know she is a girl is that she has a pouch. Dobby was found on the road. Her mother and the other babies were killed. She was two inches long and had no hair when we found her. We bottle fed her until she was strong and then we fed her baby food. Now she eats canned cat food and is litter-box trained. She got her name from Dobby the house elf on Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets because she looked just like Dobby when we found her! She is much prettier now, but her name stuck!
