Toby Bear, the Pet of the Day
Name: Toby Bear
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Black Bear Hamster
Home: Austin, Texas, USA
   Hello, My name is Toby Bear, and I am the greatest hammy-ham in the whole wide world. My People bought me from a big pet store that I really didn't like. Can you imagine a great little hammy like me being forced to share a room with my brothers and sisters!? The very nerve of those people!

    After I got settled in with my People, I had a wonderful life, or so I thought. I had a big cage to run around in, lots of toys, and a cool ball to run around in when I woke up every night.

    But then everything changed when my People adopted a big, smelly 'ol dog! When I met it, I was very scared; I didn't know what to do, so I sat very quiet and still in my cage until it went away. My Mommy saw that I was scared, and made the dog go away, and she held me in her lap 'til I felt better. And I haven't seen that nasty old dog since!

    Now I have my own room and everything; I don't even have to stay in my cage anymore. Can you believe it? My family leaves me alone during the day ('cause I really hate it when the sun is up), and they come play with me every night. They even hide my food and a bunch of treats all through my room in different places, so I can go hunting every night. It's so fun!

    All in all, I've got a pretty good life; my People love me very, very much, even though they can be annoying sometimes. I especially hate it when they take remote controls away from me. The buttons on them are just sooo much fun to bite off!
