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.
