Dash, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dash
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Long Haired Sable Syrian Hamster
Home: Ontario, Canada
   My 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.
