A Sad Day Today.

This morning Harry had to make a really difficult decision but one which made me very proud of him.
2 1/2 years ago he bought with his birthday money this little hamster which he named Hermione. In that time she made us laugh and Harry has taken such care of her and given her so much love.
Unfortunately over the last few days she has lost a lot of weight and she has not been as perky as usual. We know she is quite elderly for a hamster and that she is bound to be slowing down but we felt she needed a check up.
The vet informed Steve and Harry that she was really not well at all and if not in pain at that moment it was only a matter of time. Harry made the decision that it was not fair that she should be in pain and so the vet put her to sleep.

We have all shed tears today and I know we will all miss her terribly especially Harry who loved his little friend so much xxxxx
