Nice move putting the chicken wire up - they are crafty little buggers. We had a hamster that escaped all the time and I could never figure out why our dog didn't eat him - she is a "badger" dog after all [a dachshund] and they are bred to go after rodents. But no, I would find the hamster sitting nicely while our dachshund licked him clean. [like a little puppy]Go figure!
The boys love comments. Just remember that their parents read and approve comments.
