Dale, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dale
Age: Five weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gerbil
Home: Nova Scotia, Canada
   Dale is an only five-week-old Gerbil. We think that he's a he, but not positive on that one quite yet. Anyway, he and his brother are just new to our home. I called them both Chip 'n' Dale, because Chip looks like a chipmunk. They are very special little guys. But Chip is camera shy. I can't get one half decent picture of Chip, only Dale!

    Dale is the sweetie, out of the two of them. He doesn't try to get away much at all. He is just a snugly little guy. :-) Chip is okay too, but he runs and hides when you come around. He'll need some work!

    My three-year-old and five-year-old, just love these little guys - though they are supervised closely when playing with them, as a gerbil can be very quick, and we don;t want anything to happen to them! They are special to all of us.

    Dale is everybody's sweetheart, though we hope Chip will learn to be friendlier, too, in time.
