Introducing Spike

Well, since Hammy left us so suddenly we decided that we really loved having a hamster in the house and to that end we now have a new member of the family, Spike.

Depending on who you talk to Spike was either named after Spike Lee or the bad gremlin in the movie Gremlins.

We almost named him Shadow - but the name proved too controversial when Brianna wanted to go with "Shadow" and Andrew was advocating for "Shadow Reith".

We all agreed that Spike was a good compromise.
