Welcoming Lucy 3.0!

Lucy3_0001 Lucy 3.0, the latest spokeshamster over at HamsterTracker.com has arrived! HamsterTracker tracks the incredible distance hams cover in a specially-crafted wheel.

According to Mathijs Van Der Pauw (yes, paw!) Lucy 3.0 is a healthy bebeh girl ham, just 5 weeks old, adopted from the local ham adoption center. (hee!)

Please note Lucy, below, in her travel box from the adoption center to Mathijs house. Check Mathijs thumb compare to Lucy 3.0's size. Hilare!


I hope she is an active ham, Mathijs! We're looking forward to watching her progress. ;)

Our first lookat Lucy Three Yayyyy!

[now I'm busy imagining what a "lookat" might be, which is a bit worrying, but it wouldn't be the first time something like this has happened... - Ed.]

Peek a Boo I see who?

All Hail Hamster Lucy 3.0! Long May She Run! Wheeee!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:06 PM

The world is once again whole, with a Lucy for Mathijs to show us all!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:08 PM

My 85 pound yellow lab is named Lucy. I would love to see the two Lucy's side by side. :)

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:09 PM

Kristin, no offense to your Lucy, but I fear that if we did put the two Lucys side by side, we'd end up with only one Lucy, and nobody wants that.

*giggle* But, it'd be one HUGE hammy!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:11 PM

Yes, it was bad, I know.

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:13 PM

yay!! I <3 Lucy!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:13 PM

Gorsh, it's just like with the iPod--each new generation is even smaller than the previous one. Congrats Mathijs on your new baby!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:15 PM

Please pass my congrats on to Mathijs. I am happy for him and his new addition! Gawd - they're cute.

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:15 PM

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:20 PM

Yaaaaaaaaay!! Awesomely great news!! 5 weeks old... such a li'l darlin'! Wonder if she has any idea how lucky she is to have Mathijs as a human daddy? :)

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:46 PM

Lucy 3. What a tiny little girl.

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 02:48 PM

Annie - Well, there is a LookAt! Over on the IBM site. Check it: http://www-03.ibm.com/servers/eserver/zseries/zos/bkserv/lookat/
Don't ask me what it is though. ;-)

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 03:22 PM

Metsakins, you got there before me. Awwwwwwwwwwwww...

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 03:22 PM

Oops.. I see that my comment should have been addressed to Theo. My bad....

I want to see Lucy eat her first broccoli!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 03:37 PM

OMG I cannot believe I saw the word HILARE in print! My best friend and I invented that word (or so we thought) about 25 years ago when we were in junior high. It's been our inside joke ever since. Too funny that someone else uses it. HILARE in fact!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 04:09 PM

Musicchick2-hehe- not only is there a LookAt but there are 8 versions and a Mobile LookAt.

Ahem.. Actually (Blushes) I was typing fast and posted with out proof reading..

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 04:10 PM

Awww, congratulations on your new furry pal! That's one lucky ham!

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 04:20 PM

welcome lucy. awww she's a cutie.

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 06:13 PM

Yay = after the sad news from the CatCave, it is a deelight to meet Lucy 3.0. I wonder if she's had her first cheesburger yet? (I will return to CO tout suite after a diversion to HamsterTracker!)

 |  Jun 28, 2007 at 08:00 PM

It's unanimous!!! No controversy!!! Lucy 3.0 is adorable and everyone is happy to see her!!! So happy Mathijs adopts instead of raising "Super Hams" that can run "faster, better, longer"!!! I love her!!!

Yay for Lucy 3.0! I was so sad when Lucy 2.0 died. She was such a pretty, sweet little hammie. And her owner Mathijs was so broken up about it.

Many people don't realize how wonderful hamsters are to have as pets. They're low-maintenance, inexpensive, and if you give them a good home they can give you hours of entertainment. They may not play fetch, but they can crawl all over you, and it's so cute!

Mathijs is so wonderful to see--he cares about his hammies so much. I only hope that I can make sure my hamster Phadeus is just as happy as his Lucys have been. He inspired me to set up my own tracker! Check out Phadeus' blog: http://www.xanga.com/Phadeus

A pauw is a peacock, not a paw :P It's a cute little hamster though!

 |  Jun 29, 2007 at 04:58 AM

Am I the only one who went green with envy at the phrase "his local ham adoption center"? I doubt we even have a regional ham adoption centre. Is this a common thing in the Netherlands? If so, I am going to live there right now.

 |  Jun 29, 2007 at 05:26 AM

Welcome, Lucy 3.0! So happy to have the next generation ready to run and make us smile!

 |  Jun 29, 2007 at 05:28 AM

Aw, she's so tiny. She look so timid. can't wait to see her runnin' around.

re: Ham Adoption Center

Often there are abandoned hams at your local shelter, or on CraigsList. I got my last hamster from a shelter and while at first a little standoffish from early neglect he was just as active and climby as any other ham. He lived 2 years with me.

Now I have a bunny (also adopted from a shelter)

 |  Jun 29, 2007 at 07:41 AM


Sooooo teeeny.

 |  Jun 29, 2007 at 07:56 AM

my guinea pig brothers were adopted from my local humane society! Call your local shelters first - before you "buy!"

 |  Jun 29, 2007 at 09:38 AM

Hams are cool. I would love to have one as a pet.

Hi lil Lucy 3.0!!

I hope you have a fabulously long and happy life!!

Just to reitterate a point above before you go buying at the pet store for any animal cat dog bunny hamster mouse even horse goat or donkey check your local shelter. Shelters have a wide variety of animals in theri care many at foster homes so check there first.
