About Manolo

Hello all. I want to let all of Manolo’s fans know that yes, Monolo has gone to sleep forever on August 31, 2009 😥

Manolo left this world peacefully. He was found in the afternoon under his wood bridge. He appeared to be asleep, lying down on his side, his ears tucked back. He didn’t appear to have agonized or anything. He look calm. He just went to sleep.

I never knew his exact birth date but he came to live with me at around 4 months of age. I would guess he lived 2 1/2 years. I will never know for sure. He died of old age. In the later months he began losing hair on his ears and his ankles. His body hair didn’t seem as bright and fluffy as when he was young. However, he never lost his stamina! He was still playing around and climbing and he loved to eat his veggies and his treats.

Manolo will always be very special to me. He was sweet and kind. He was playful and curious, never picky! He tried everything new to him and he wasn’t afraid. He loved the camera! It’s almost like he knew that taking his picture was a compliment to him. He posed for pictures! He loved it.

Manolito was my friend. He made me feel happy to have his company. I know he also lived happy with me. I could tell by the many times he lied down and stared around the room and watched what we were doing. He is the sweetest and cutest hamster EVER! 😉

His little body was wrapped in soft bright white tissues and placed in a small corner in a garden where he will be claimed back by nature.

I’m not going to take down Manolo’s pictures from the blog, after all he was loved by many around the world. He inspired many people to get robo hamsters of their own to love. This is Manolo’s blog and it will always be.

I love you Manolo! 😥

Love cures all

*Rest In Peace sweet koala* Sam has left this world today 8/6/2009.  The 4 year old cutie and symbol Australian hope was put to sleep after complications of a disease that threatens many koalas. She will be remembered for her courage and fight for life and for showing the world that koalas like all living creatures have feelings and the same desire for life and love like we do. Sam taught us that we need each other if we want to live. She also reminded the world that koalas are beautiful sweet creatures. We’ll miss you Sam!!!

This is a really sweet story of love. The koala that was rescued from the Australian fires has found not only friends and shelter but love too. It turns out the koala was a female and she was named Sam by people at the shelter where she is staying. There, she has met Bob, another rescued koala and the two have supported each other through their tough time. Sam is getting treated for 3rd degree burns to her paws. The koalas along with many other rescued animals can’t go back home 😦 their home is gone but they will be released to a nice place when they get all better.

Here’s the touching video of Sam’s rescue:

These people are awesome 😉 If you can send them help they really deserve it : The Mountain Ash Wildlife Center in Rawson

Valentine Bull

Yes! It happens every year. An animal with a heart-shaped birthmark shows up just in time for Valentine’s Day. We’ve had a pig, a chihuahua…I don’t know what else, use my search 😆

This time it’s a bull! no bull, I mean, no kidding. This cutie was born in Japan two weeks ago. His name is Ha-chan, which means heart. Now, we all know that if an animal is born in February with a heart shape anywhere on its body that’s like getting the gift of life…again. We still don’t know if Ha-chan will be saved from the butcher but people are appealing for a rescue, maybe a zoo or a sanctuary. Lets hope this cute bull finds a home in time. He’s super cute!

Roomba Baby

Remember the Roomba Cat? Now there’s the Roomba Baby. He’s so cute 😆 but I think his chubby baby-ness brakes the vacuum at the end! Not to worry cuz unlike the Roomba Kitty, this baby has human intelligence to allow him to press the buttons and attempt to fix it. ha-ha

Good Bye 2008


Old man 2008 is heading out, vanishing never to return again. It was a nasty old man but it did bring some nice and funny things. Short recap:

1. German polar bear Knut took the worst hits of the year. First, he was taken down from the cutie throne and replaced by a newer, fluffier, and -some say- cuter polar bear named Flocke. Knut grew old, dark, dirty and even his human daddy left him to go tend to other polar bears in the sky. Now Knut is either on sale or sold because he’s too “expensive” to keep.

2. There was this crazy naked parrot on all the news programs. The bird thought he was cute and he danced and shook his featherless tail for all of us to see.

3. 2008 was great for a Bosnian bear who waited for years to be freed from abuser mobsters. He was rescued and transfered to a new caring place and he was also introduced to a female bear to live happily ever after.

4. Spaghetti Cat. Gosh! He didn’t do anything but show his face and everyone either laughed or fell in love. LOL 😆

5. Puppy Cam. Live web cams are old things by now but somehow live streaming of a bunch of puppies was something that people couldn’t get enough of.

6. Election day. It was great to see that America got together and had the guts to take back what’s ours. We elected change! A change in the way others see us. A change in the way we see each other. New hope for the future. Hope for peace.

7. Roomba Cat. This cat never saw a recession or a crisis. He was living the good life riding on his Roomba Vac and he looked incredibly cute doing it.

8. Barney bit a reporter. Bush’s dog was so ticked off that he is leaving the White House that one day he just snapped and bit a reporter on the hand. Sorry Barney! Ciao!!!

9. One sad story was that of the many people across the country who either lost their homes to foreclosure or had to move to smaller cheaper apartments and because of this they had to abandon their animals, some on the street. Shelters were overcrowded and many dogs and cats were seen run over on the streets. Animals became too expensive to keep and many landlords had a “no pet” policy for apartments so people were caught in dilemas. Many dropped off their pets at shelters and had to say good bye to life-long friends.

10. Finally, I want to highlight the story of a street dog in Chile. One accustomed to being kicked around and abandoned. He was caught on camera trying to save another dog after the dog got hit by a car on the highway. This dog’s bravery made us feel warm and fuzzy inside. There’s still hope to do good things for others in this world.
