I used to own Campbell's Russian Dwarf hamsters...there are many people that don't place the same type of value on "pocket pets" as they do on their larger furry friends. The truth is, is that rats, mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc. are wonderful pets, and true companions such as cats and dogs. They too are truly unique and special...I hurt tremendously whenever I lost a hamster baby.
RIP Dexter. You will be greatly missed!
