Zach's New Pet

While Jonathan and I were gone in Colville, Zach's last hamster, Checkers (I liked to spell it "Czequerz" :) died for an unknown reason. So a few weeks ago he went shopping for a replacement. He ended up with this cute, short-haired female which he named "Kibbles."


This name has a pretty funny story. Reading the box which served as a temporary cage for the hamster, Aimee found the labels "Food for Dogs," "Natural Choice Puppy Food," and "Puppy Yankee Potroast!" In that same line of thought, Mom suggested he name her Kibbles, after the infamous Kibbles & Bits dog food commercials. Zach's the only one hoping she won't live up to her name! :) Actually, we all like her, and I find her more entertaining (and cuter) than Czequerz used to be.

That first photo is too cute! She's posing! How on earth did you get her to do that Benj? Blackmail I suppose.... ;-)

Oh, almost forgot, got an idea for your next post--should be the weirdest photos you took at Colville. Now that would be funny! Except the ones of me, though...

Oh, I just smiled at her... :)Actually I think she thought I was offering the camera for dinner! Hamsters are weird, but cute.

I need to post those pics. Except there aren't any of me :( That's what I get for being a photographer.

hey cool blog ben. or benjamin. or whatever you like too be called. anyway I think the name Kibbles fits her pretty well.

chelsea said...

You'd think that was the reason for you being the photographer.... ;-)

Chris McCarthy said...

Hey thanks Chris! I visited your blog--nice job, but you should post more! :)(there's the pot calling the kettle black)

I don't mind having my picture taken, but it rarely happens. Oh, and if I didn't post goofy pictures of you Chels, I'd have nothing to post! :)

Yeah I should post alittle more often. But when theres nothing to post I just don't post. :)

Oh very funny! ;-) But hey, what can I say? If I wasn't here for entertainment value (and page turning!) what else would I do? :-D
