Lenny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lenny
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Chinchilla
Home: New Hampshire, USA
   What makes my pet special is that my sisters and I wanted a chinchilla after seeing pictures of our mom's six chinchillas and hearing her talk about how much she loved to play and pat her chinchillas. So after asking and asking some more, our parents said we could look around. We called many stores and found stores that carried chinchillas. I went to Petsmart with my dad. I saw Lenny in the cage all by himself, so the lady came over and let us hold him and I knew he was the chinchilla for our family. He just sat there calmly and let me hold him. So two days later my dad picked me up from school and we went to Petsmart and bought him.

    We have Lenny since last October. He loves to take dust bathes and when he does he put on a show and makes anyone who watches laugh. My four-year-old sister and Lenny are best friends - she puts a raisin in and he grabs it. My dad also gives him raisins. He also knows how to stand when you say stand! Lenny loves to come on the couch and watch TV with us - he hops person to person, to share his fun, furry self with each of us. He is truly one of the best pets you can have.
