Park Pictures and Hamster News

I've been going up the hill to the park by the pond to play ball a lot lately. Last week my human Lizzy brought her camera so that she could take pictures of me running across the dandelion-covered field with my orange ball!

It was a cloudy day to start out with, but as I kept on running with my orange ball, the sun did eventually come out to warm up the ground a bit (the weather is getting colder rapidly now)!

Now, just a quick update on Furble the Hamster... We finally decided on a real name for her, although we still call her Furble sometimes. But her new, real name is now "Hazel Fufu". Fufu is her middle name, so we mostly call her Hazel. Sometimes we call her Stinkerbell though, because the humans say that she stinks, but I actually like her smell. I am somewhat embarrassed to say that I have sort of grown to love the little creature, and I like to follow her around or sit by her cage a lot. She is pretty cute, I suppose. But that means I have to look extra cute too, so that my humans will still pay attention to me instead of Hazel!

Here's a short clip of Hazel...

I have some news about agility to share with you all, but we're still waiting to get some certain pictures to share with the news, so I'll tell you all in my next post... Don't worry, I'm pretty sure you'll be able to withstand the suspense! I hope you're all having a grrrrEAT weekend!

Hi Sparky
Furble-Hazel-Stinkerbell is really cute. You are so nice and gentle with her. Lizzy takes great pictures. I love your flying ears.


Moco said...

Good to see you again. You look lovely running through the flowers with your orange ball.
Hazel seems very busy to me. That is pretty good that she can get her feet into her mouth.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Sparky,
Do you think we can trade siblings sometime?? Hershey's a girl actually (heehee) so if you don't mind, maybe I can have Hazel and you can take Hershey?
Hazel is so adorable! No wonder you are so smitten with her too.. I kinda like my hammie sister (Moosie) too, especially the smell of fresh sawdust in her cage!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

Oh what a cute little hammie. Our teen-human wants a new little petkin. Her gerbil died a few months ago - he came with us from Chicago and his name was "Homie G" he was a rapmaster gerbil. Can you believe that the teen-human is talking about getting a HEDGEHOG?

Chef said...

Sparkers! I've missed you! Well, little Hazel is very cute, giving herself a pedi like that. I don't know where you found the strength to just keep walking.. I'd have jumped her long ago!

Nice to see you doing your running thing with your orange ball. Have a good week.


Shadie the Aussie said...

My ma sure thinks you are a neat looking dog, so fluffy and cute.

Tail Wags,

parlance said...

Sparky, tell Lizzy I admire her photography skills! All the pictures are great, but that first one is a winner - the focus if so detailed and the action is captured beautifully, and I love the detail of the sparkle in your eye.

Maggie and Mitch said...

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Lady Kaos said...

You look like you're having fun in the park. Hazel is a very ute name and Fufu is a great middle name, too. Hazel moves really really fast!!!!!

Comet and BLU said...

Hazel may be cute, but we still think you are cuter, Sparky!!

It looks like you had a great time chasing your orange ball in the park. Just make sure you don't "accidentally" mix up your ball and Hazel. :-)

Amici said...

Awww, Hazel is adorable.

Sparky- you were so good to Hazel. :)

Our brother in law just got a kitten but I (Amici) haven't been able to see it yet. They are worried how I may react.
