||Two years old|
||Long Haired Sable Syrian Hamster|
hamster Dash was my first hamster ever. He helped me learn a lot of
things - like pine and cedar shavings are bad for all small animals and
that one habitrail cage is too small.
Dash lives in two habitrail cages with tons of tubes. He has only the
finest shavings and bedding, carefresh. And his Mommy is always giving
him tons of treats. When I first got Dash he ran so fast I couldn't
believe it. So I wanted to name him something for his speed. Speedy just
didn't work but my mom suggested the name Dash and I liked it!
Dash makes me feel special every day. He just looks at me with those
eyes and I melt. I have written stories about him. He is known as Sir
Dash and he always rescues. Currently I am writing the third story to
the series. My Mom and me even made up a song for him and he loves it
when we sing to him.
Dash shares my room with seven other hamsters. Although being a syrian
hamster he doesn't really live with any of them. Syrian hamsters are
very territorial and should not live with any other animal.
