Dottie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dottie
Age: Six months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Hamster
Home: New York, New York, USA
   Dottie is a cute little brown and white striped hamster with distinctive dots on her back--thus earning her name. Not only does she have a brown dot on her white stripe, but also a white dot on her brown stripe!

    Dottie's favorite activities include hanging around the sofa with her owners, driving her hamster-car forward and reverse around the kitchen, munching loudly on sunflower seeds, and escaping for an evening scamper around the house. Much to both the amazement and chagrin of her owners, Dottie's mastery of popping the plastic cover to her cage is surpassed only by her ability to elude capturing hands!

    But Dottie is a responsible and well-mannered member of the family. Her morning chore is waking her six-year-old owner in the morning. She is placed on the owner's head (in the bed) until the owner is up, laughing and ready to get dressed for school. Dottie also eats at the same time her family eats, as almost by instinct. She will naturally sit inside her bowl and nibble while the family is dining at the table!
