RIP Peanut Butter

July 27th, 2007 at 11:53 am

No, not a sandwich, the girls hamster Peanut Butter went on to the big hamster cage in the sky. He was a good little hamster who did'nt mind when they forgot to feed him or clean his stinky cage. He did really good, he lasted three years which is quite old in hamster years. They made him a "coffin?" (highly decorated and quite large shoe box), will take me a while to dig that hole! DD1 took it pretty hard. I think pets are an excellent way not only to teach kids about responsibility, compassion and well....life.

    So sorry about Peanut Butter. We had a hamster named Daisy that was a hoot and also lived longer than normal. She is buried in the corner of the backyard in a shoebox. DD built a little cross out of popsicle sticks that survived for a long time since Hubby would replace it back in the ground after he mowed. Hug your girls today for me.

    Awww ... He did live to a ripe old age (for a hamster). Like you, lots of smart parents use short-lived pets, like hamsters or fish (betas have a life expectancy of around 2 years) as a way to learn about life & death. Your girls sound very sweet to make such a nice coffin for Peanut Butter.

    So sorry to hear about Peanut Butter. That was sweet of the girls to make a pretty burial box to send him on over to the Rainbow Bridge....
