I haven't really posted on my blog in ages. To recap what has happened, Amy has gone home. We got a nice card. But, at the end of the card, it said Emmie, not Amy. No wonder she doesn't come when we call her!!
The next thing that happened happened today. I got a new hamster!!! His name is Odie, like Odie from Garfield. Odie, my hamster, is a fancy hamster. He is a short haired tan hamster. He is so cute! I'll be sure to post a picture soon of Odie. We haven't messed with him alot today.

Last Wednesday, I was let out of school early because of all the snow. This wasn't scheduled. So I had to call my mom at work. When I came home, I went outside to play with Amy. The snow was almost to her stomach. When she ran, it looked like she was a snow plow. All of the snow came flying!
I have a swing set in my backyard. There is a slide that was covered with snow. I took my sled and slid down the slide. I almost knocked my head on our fire pit. I was screaming even though it was fun.
If you are wondering why I haven't posted in a while, it is because Truffles was put to sleep a week before Christmas. The vet said that he had a tumor in his pouch area that grew so big that it pressed on his heart and he had a stroke. I took him out of his cage two days before he died and he couldn't walk. I was so scared. I didn't know what to do. We put him in the bottom of his cage to sleep. The day he died, I was at school for yearbook staff meeting. I asked my mom how Truffles was doing. She said my dad took him to a small aanimal specialist. When he came back, Truffles was dead. I was so sad. We burried him by my old cat, Genesis. We wrapped him in a towel with bedding and put a carrot in with him. I will never forget about the memories that I had with him.

On Friday, we rescued a dog named Amy. She's my neighbor's dog but since we flooded a few weeks ago they can't live in their house. They thought someone was watching Amy but no one was. My dad and I went back and forth, giving Amy food, water, and attention. She was barking and we didn't want anyone calling the police for her barking. So at about 8:30 on Friday(I was at school already), my mom took Amy and left her in our backyard. I was so surprised when I got home. My mom said that if they don't want the dog back, we can keep her. I was bugging her over the years to get a dog but she said no. I was so happy. We took Amy to Pet Smart and my soccer game. I finally didn't fell left out. We think Amy is part Pitbull, part Labrador Retriever.

Truffles' birthday was September 3rd. We forgot last year to give him a birthday salad(since he can't have cake) so this year we gave him a salad. We put some of his snacks, a orange pepper, a cucumber, a tomato, and salad leafs. He really liked it only he didn't eat it all because it was so much. My mom told me to save it for his snack next time. Last night, I gave it to him and it was all rotten! So instead of that, I gave him some fresh cucumber slices which he stuffed. We had to get Truffles a new cage because the top part of the cage that he slept in broke. His last cage was a CritterTrail3 and we added on a CritterTrail1 to it with CritterTrail Fun-nels and CritterTrail Sky Dome. Those were his birthday gifts only I didn't put them together until last night. So that is how Truffles' birthday party went.
