Rosie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rosie
Age: Deceased, 2 1/2 years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Mongolian Gerbil
Home: UK
   Although she is deceased, Rosie will forever remain a 'Pet of the Day' to me. She was a Mongolian Gerbil, and her coloring was Spotted, Dark-eyed Honey. Her sister died when they were around a year old, so she needed a lot of companionship from myself.

    She would hop right out onto my hand to come out and would come out to play for hours on end on the bed, and would pull my hair, bite my cheeks, ears, glasses, etc, if I didn't pay enough attention to her. She learnt tricks at the drop of a hat, and as she aged, she slept on the laptop next to the warm air vent (as you can see in the picture).

    She was my lovely Rosie. Below is the last photo taken of her, after her kidney problems became more severe, the day we had to have her PTS. She was just under three years old.
