Little B.

Little B.'s full name was Little Brownie. She was Brittany's first hamster. She was a gray Siberian hamster with a very sweet disposition. She loved to climb up her tubes. One day near Christmas, we noticed a lump on little. B. I took her to the Vet who told me that she probably had a breast cancer tumor. I asked if the vet could operate. Well, vets are not used to operating on little critters like a small Siberian hamster, but I did find someone who was willing to try. Little B. had her tumor removed I think the day after Christmas one year. She recovered nicely and lived for at least another 6 months after that, which was pretty good for a critter with a life span of only 1-2 years to begin with. Eventually, the tumors came back and she died. But we loved her very much. She was the first of our "critters" to be buried in our back yard. Now she is joined by Tiny Benny (Siberian hamster), Little Georgie (gerbil), and Xiaoling (Chinese hamster) who just died today (Dec. 2, 2004).
