Dearest Emma, what an adorable snow-white hamster girl you are! You are so cute with the soft-looking fur and those dark eyes. You have a delightful personality, too! You like to sleep in the afternoon and then eat and play with your dear person and run on your wheel in the evening. You and he/she love each other very much, don't you. What a wonderful love-filled home you share!
Congratulations, darling Emma, on being chosen today's Pet of the Day! We hope you and your dear person and all your family and friends are enjoying a fine celebration, full of fun and lovies and all your favorite games and treats.
