One of these....

Age: 13 days old
Mass: 88 grams

... isn't like the other.

When raising young animals, it's important to make sure they get enough mental stimulation. For hamsters, you put a wheel into the cage. For puppies, you give them a ball or chew toy. This dog toy seems a bit big for George, but he did give it a peck to see what it was all about. He didn't seem that impressed and went back to playing with a blade of grass.

George is starting to walk around, but he still tires easily and needs to work on his balance.

  1. This is fantastic Janet! What a great way to educate and engage people.

    Though I have to admit George is not getting any cuter. He was most cute leaning against your hand.

    I look forward to seeing George someday when he/she is on the job. Keep up the good work!


  2. I admit, I think George is unbelievably cute. I'm addicted to the blog - awesome job!
