Larry, the Pet of the Day
Name: Larry
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Gerbil
Home: Illinois, USA
   On my birthday, I wanted a gerbil. My dad had a rule that he wanted no rodents in the house. He finally agreed to getting a gerbil for me on my birthday. On the day of my birthday, I came home from school and was asking my mom, "Where's Pop?" She answered with, "Pop got in a car crash on the way home from work, but was not hurt. You can get your gerbil tomorrow." As a ten year old girl, you would know how bad I would have felt when I heard this news. And I wanted my new pet on my birthday! But, in our family, we believe in celebrating our birthday for a whole week. My mom explained that to me and I didn't feel as bad. So, just as my mom said, the next day we got my new family member, Larry. He is even the same color as my dog - so we knew he'd fit in well here. Larry is happy in his new home, which is a lot roomier than the home he was in at Petsmart. I love my gerbil, Larry!! He is cute, friendly, and a girl's dream come true!
