The Baby Dwarf Hamsters

It's really hard to tell just how small they are, but take the lettering on Jo's shirt as a reference point...

The one Jo is holding in this bottom photo had rickets...basically softening of the teeth and loss of hair due to the inability to eat hard food. I gave her romaine lettuce for a week, and she is growing, eating, and her hair is back. What a relief!

Awww, they are so sweet! And such a pretty grey colour.

Your heart amazes me. You can tell a sensitive caring loving person by how much they love the simply things around them and your love of animals proves just that....

By the way, I am worried about Pam. Have you heard anything about her?

Oh how I love the smokies! Can't wait to drive thru in a couple of weeks! Glad you had a good trip and are home safe. Did you enjoy your time away? (it sure looks like it).
The hamsters are sooooo stinking cute!
