it was so sad when sweet speedy died. it seemed unexpected to us
but it was her time. we had just gotten home from the 4th of july
parade when we noticed she was slowing down and within an hour
she had died. it was really hard for our whole family. the girls both wanted to hold her, and grama helped find a small box and blanket for her. we brought her home and buried her under some pine trees in our backyard. so RIP sweet speedy -- you were an amazing little hamster and we loved you very much. it still trips me out when i think about how you let the girls hold you and carry you around -- little robos don't usually act that way, but you did. you were one-of-a kind, very very special. and missed every day.
