Bernie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bernie
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Teddy Bear Hamster
Home: Lincolnshire, Illinois, USA
   Hi, I am Bernie. I am a very fuzzy, little, cute hamster (as you can see)! I love to chew and hang off of my ceiling bars, which my mommy thinks is very funny. Whenever I come up to my mommy, she gives me a sunflower seed, my favorite treat. And I also really love to play hide 'n' go seek in my plastic tubes.

    Bernie Is a really special hamster to me. I got him this summer at a local Petsmart. Right when I saw him, I knew he was the one because he looked so cute and friendly. But when we got home, and I was ready to put him In his cage, he bit my finger so hard I almost had to go get stitches! I guess the excitement of the day was just too stressful for him. But the next day, he had calmed down. I left him In his cage for two more days with food and water of course, and talked to him, and when I finally picked him up, he was no longer angry, he cuddled up in my hand and yawned! I was very happy. Now, I am so lucky to have a hamster like Bernie, because he Is so funny, cute and cuddly!
