She was fun while she lasted

Our beloved little hamster, Pippy Loo, reached the end of her little hamster lifespan. She was actually only middle-aged for a hamster, but evidently got an infection in her lungs that did her in in very short order. She was playing and running on her wheel on Sunday night and breathing her last by Tuesday. Very sad, but the kids and I had a little burial for her that seemed to give everone some good closure.
And everyone got over the loss pretty quickly when I promised a new hamster. Pippy Loo was very tame and a real joy (as much as a hamster can be). Here's hoping that our new hamster is just as good.
