About Us
Dumbledore, the Pet of the Day
Name: Dumbledore
Age: Two and a half months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Degu
Home: Ohio, USA
   Hello, my name is Dumbledore and I am a baby Degu. I was one of four born to my mom Daisy, but only two of us survived.

    I am bigger than my brother, though not by much. I am also just a little lighter in color too. I live in a big bird cage with my mom and brother, but I get to see my dad and uncle all the time because they are in a big cage right next to mine. Mom talks to them all the time.

    Tammy and Ethan, and Jennie get me out all the time to explore around. I don't think I like it much right now. It makes me nervous and I try and find my brother by looking everywhere I can. I like it when they get us out together. I like it when I can climb up and see where everything is on Tammy's shoulder. She has long hair and I can hide in it and feel safe.

    Right now I am still drinking milk from mom, but soon I hope she lets us try the stuff she eats in the cold bowl in our cage, it smells really good but mom keeps turning away from me when I try to taste it.

    They put a big piece of wood in our cage today with holes in it and I really like to climb on it. It is my new place to look out and see things.

    Well I guess I better go for now, Thank you for listening to me. I had better get back to mom before she starts to worry to much. My brother said I wasn't allowed to be gone for very long.
