Dog Run @ Tampines Central Park

Greetings, my friends! It's Dumbledore here again! I am here to tell you all something very interesting that Ashley did last Sunday! She went to the dog run at Tampines Central Park and she was extremely lucky to be able to play with 10 dogs there! 

There was even a big golden retriever and he was super cute! There were all types of dogs, even a wippet who seemed to run as fast as Usain Bolt, the fastest man on Earth! Watching the dogs sprinting around was like watching the Dog Olympics. It was so cool! She even played fetch with them and got slobbered all over! Those dogs were extremely friendly and fun to play with. Here is a video of Ashley playing with them at the dog run! Do check it out if you are in the neighbourhood.

I think I want a dog now! (Wait, I'm a hamster-)

Yours faithfully,

Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore the Hamster

Introducing Dumbledore the Hamster!

Hello everyone! I am Dumbledore the Russian Winter White Dwarf Hamster and I am Ashley's very first hamster! Dino is busy gallivanting with his friends over at the Rainbow Bridge, so I will be taking over his blog and I am absolutely thrilled!
My handsome face

I went home with Ashley on the 15th of December 2020, when I was only a one month old tiny wisp of fur. When the pet shop auntie took me out of my tank, from my beloved siblings, I was frightened because I knew that it was my turn to be brought home by a human! It was what my siblings called "The Unlucky Day", and we all dreaded our turn to come! I had seen my previous siblings, who had already been brought home by a human, screaming and struggling to wriggle out of the pet shop auntie's hands. I was absolutely terrified! The auntie put me in a little cardboard box and a strange child with short hair, wearing glasses brought me home!

Ashley holding me in a cardboard box. Help!!! 😨

When we reached home, I was greeted by excited squeals and unfamiliar scents. I was scared because this was my first time alone without my siblings, surrounded by strangers. My new family put me in a little green cage and stood back to watch me explore my new home. The bedding was warm and cozy. I ran on the wheel for a while before going to my food bowl to eat some seeds. I went underneath my wheel and decided it was a good place to sleep. I was still afraid of these humans, but as time passed, I started to like them! Ashley makes lots and lots of fun toys for me and gives me lots of yummy food! I am now Ashley's best friend and both of us are inseparable. It seems that being a pet isn't that bad after all!

Getting to know each other

I will be sharing more about myself and some of my friends in the neighbourhood! I hope that we can be friends and I would love to hear from you soon! You can email me at

Yours faithfully,
