Stanley

Stanley, Old Fellow

Adopted March 2010 - the fattest dwarf hamster we'd ever seen. By that time he'd been at the SPCA (and without a wheel) for at least five months (they said).

In November we adopted the very young Clark to see if he'd be a little friend for our Stannels who, so sweet and dear, also seemed like he could use even more attention.

To say that Clark was devoted to Stanley is like saying that refried beans are often available in Mexican restaurants. If we still don't know Clark as well as we should, it's because we couldn't compete with Stan.

Every day was a very good day for Stanley. Tofu, seeds, wheel-and-saucer, tunnels, naps, and jumping on his bed. Clark to snuggle near and the two of us to chat with him all day if not most of the night.

On Sunday Stan went for his morning nap, and that was that. We miss him, but - as the song says - it was a very good year.
