Remember sweet little Sandy? Well, he's passed onto the great gerbil home in the sky. We know he's up there, frolicking in fields and rolling in sand with his brother Snow-belly. We were sorry to see him go but he had a long life for a gerbil - about 4 years. You can't ask for more than that. He was pretty cheerful right up until the end although I could tell he was having trouble getting comfortable, what with the sleeping in strange places, strange positions and all the tipping over. We buried him out back with the other assorted rodents and fish. Then Doodlebug and I said some nice words over his grave. He'll live forever in our hearts.
