A New Family Member...

Today we went looking for a new family member, those of you who know us, know that we love little hamsters & have had 3 of them in the past 8 years, who have all moved on to the next part of their journey in the universe.
We found our new family member today, his name is Sam. He is a Syrian Hamster, larger by 3 times than our other hamsters who were Russians. This guy is so cool, he is soft & has long hair that you can brush, he is very funny & from what we see so far has a great curious character.
He is already full grown at 3 months. At the pet shop they called him Big Boy, when we were taking him & all of his home & goodies away, all the people who work at the shop, gathered around to say goodbye to him.
In the photo you can see how he already loves me. I hope, I hope.
He is now resting in his new home & getting used to us, we wont play with him for 24 hours so he can settle in a bit.
We are so glad we found him...he is lovely.
