Rest in Peace, Penny #2

She was a good hamster while she lasted. I believe the cause of death was a fall from the cage wall or an upper deck. She had shone no sign of illness. The first hamster looked sick for a few hours and buried itself in it's little house. I found Penny #2 out in the open, near the frontdoor of the cage. It didn't even occur to me to lie to the kids, again. I told them right away. Mini Me cried (The Mourner). Boy #1 volunteered to call and tell S.A.M (The Informer). Boy #2 volunteered to pick up the body and put it in a box (The Undertaker). Then they asked for another pet that wasn't so fragile. ::Sigh:: I loved Penny #2. I'll miss her.

  1. This doesn't seem an appropriate time to yell "FIRST!" so I won't.

    RIP Penny #2. We barely knew thee.

  2. You know how in The Incredibles at the end the Underminer comes out? I was thinking underminer instead of undertaker for a second.
    My girls call him the Underwearminer.

    Sorry to hear about Penny the twoth (pronounced tooth, as in 2nd)
    So what are you going to get next? An armadillo?

  8. Holy Hamster Dance!!! Your house is like some kind of Hamster Slaughterhouse. Annies Place: Where Hamsters Come To Die.....

    We kill off Beta Fish at about the same pace. :(

    R.I.P Penny....unless they bury you in Pet Semetary. You're not, are you Annie?

  9. Haven't seen such an outpouring of sympathy for an expired hamster since Hampton the Dancing Hamster's passing.

    In memorium of Penny.

  12. Oh so sad. :( I have sworn off hamsters. They are fragile and so are my daughters hearts.

    I got a kick out of the responsibilities your children took on: The Mourner, The Informer, and The Undertaker. Precious.

  15. Poor Penny 2! That must have been hard for your kids to find her that way! Hopefully you'll have better luck with the next pet!
