Vino's back!

Everyone remembers Vino, the 3-legged hamster, right? Anna pulled it together and "earned" him back last week. She was more than joyous when I brought him home on Saturday after work.

He really is the sweetest little rodent. And, he really has adapted well to his disability; at times its hard to tell he is even missing a leg! He still runs on the wheel! Enricka (who is apparently going through hamster withdrawal) made sure he was really hand-tame. Anna and Colin have been very happy to have him back. Anna takes every opportunity to kiss him, and Colin shrieks, "Vino Wake!!!" whenever he comes out of his hidey-hole.



Here Colin poses with a sticker he found with "Cinderera and Prince!" Look closely and you can see his split lip from bouncing off the big slide at the park. There were tears and blood everywhere, but within moments he was sliding back down. Little trooper.

Yeah, Anna! What a little victory for everyone. Sounds like Enricka deserves some chocolate dipped karmaberries...

It's so cute how Colin is so taken with Cinderella. Glad he survived his first split lip.
