Goodbye, little buddy

We're so sorry to hear that little Baruchito has passed away, Javi. He was a delightful little fellow who inspired your terrific web pages. Reading about little Baru and looking at his photos is always treat, like the perfect little corn kernel. We're so glad he passed on those qualities to his own little guys. We send you our sincere sympathies and are grateful to have known the famous Baruchito. All the best to you.

Aww.. :( I loved him. Seeing him always made me happy.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 12:59 PM

I was so sad when I read this on his site last night. He was such a little cutie....at least he is no longer suffering. He had a pretty hard go the last couple of days.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 01:24 PM

I saw this yesterday and I cried, like straight out sobbing cried! :(

Bye bye, Baru-chan...Your cheerful presence will be missed by all.

Dear Julie,
When a grown man like myself can come to a site like this - and find a site like baru's, and then subsequently be sad about his death, there must have something done right. That is me, a grown man - now imagine all of these other internet kiddies that found the site and followed Baru's life as a procrastination from the ordinary. You guys keep talking like that, I have no doubt that the "awwws" and "poor little guy" are sincere.

Goodbye little baru. You were a super cute bundle of hamster fluff. (Yeah, I said it.)

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 02:50 PM

I'm so, so sorry about little Baru! I don't think any other little guy was so well loved.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 02:52 PM

Goodbye Baru, i'm so sorry your last days were so painful. I hope you're
happy in hammy heaven.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 03:16 PM

I've been reading this blog for a while now, and I love it, but I've never posted before.

Reading about poor Baru made me incredibly sad; it's amazing, though, to read all the supportive and kind comments from all around the world on Baru and Javi's website, and it's wonderful to know how many people out there really love and care about their little pets.

Bye Baru; you made lots of people around the world happy.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 03:35 PM

poor baru. what a cutie. it is so obvious that he was so well loved from looking through his blog and also seeing all of the comments about him. what a nice fun-filled life he had. i was very sorry to see that he has passed on... <3

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 03:54 PM

I'm so sorry. what a pity.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 03:57 PM

So So Sorry!We all loved him!

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 04:22 PM

isn't amazing that a lil' ham can unite the world like this? i, too, was touched by his joy.

RIP, baru. i wish all the world's animals had papas as loving as you did. what a world THAT would be, eh?

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 04:24 PM

Aww, poor little thing. I am sad, but I am so greatful that he got Javi as his papa. What a wonderful hammie dad he was. Rest in peace our little loved one.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 04:33 PM

baru had a wonderful life...but he will be missed

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 04:42 PM

awww... poor baru, he was one of the cutest hamsters known to mankind I'm sure.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 06:51 PM

I actually cried when I saw Baru's picture when he was sick, but I really cried when I heard he had passed. My heart goes out to his papa and mama, and my only solace is the fact that he was so loved. I never thought that I would fall in love on the internet, but I did :(

I am so sorry. It is never easy to lose such a cherished friend. I agree with many of the other above sentiments; although it is so sad, it makes me happy to think of how much baru was loved.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 07:41 PM

He has gone to where men are heroes and Hamsters are gods. Now it's his turn to take care of his Papa. Love & sympathy to Javi & everyone else that must do without Baruchito. Take comfort in the knowledge that he is waiting for you out there.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 07:57 PM

R.I.P. little guy! :(

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 09:29 PM

I just cried for the third time over little Baru-chan...what an impact such a little creature can have on so many people...

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 09:30 PM

Oh how so very, very sad...I know what a little guy like Baru can do to us and especially his 'human'..he will always be in your heart and will live on through his offspring...G_d bless all creatures..great and so very small and cute

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 10:37 PM

I and my hamster, Nibblies, are so sad to hear this news. Baru has been in our thoughts lately. We send our kind thoughts to Baru's family.

 |  Jan 29, 2006 at 11:36 PM

R.I.P, lil Baru. You made my head explode and my heart break. Goodbye, lil Baru-chan, live happily in Hamster heaven.. your memory will be cherished.

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 01:36 AM

Rest In Peace little Baru. Hope to see you on the other side when all is done here.

Dear Baru,

You made me forget my fear of rodents. I'll never forget you.


 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 02:05 AM

I cried when I read this. I am so very sorry for your loss. No pain now though. Run free Baru

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 03:04 AM

So sorry to hear that....hos legacy lives on in such cuteness

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 05:18 AM

So sorry to hear that....his legacy lives on in such cuteness

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 05:18 AM

Poor little hamster:( Its weird how the passing away of a hamster, which I dont personally 'know', makes me this sad:(

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 05:32 AM

Baruchito, you will be missed. may there be plenty of cucumbers for you in hamster heaven. you've left this world for a better place, but your memory will live on forever in our hearts and in our computers.

This is the new power of the internet, forget commerce. I actually felt for a hamster that lived in Japan. Unreal. Seriously, Baruchito, you will be missed!

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 05:53 AM

I have tears rolling down my face here :(

(I bought myself a wee hamster at the weekend)

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 06:05 AM

I just barely got to know him, and now I'm mourning for him...

G'bye little buddy...

Hamster of love

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 07:43 AM

Okay, I'll ask what we are all thinking: red or white wine with fried Baruchito?

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 08:30 AM

oh my god. just totally cried at work over little baru. you never think about the mortality of the cuteness. it is so real world.

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 08:44 AM

Oh geez, I never thought I would tear up about a hamster dying. But after clicking on the link to Baru's page and seeing the poor little guy so helpless and that pic of him "smiling" after eating a piece of cucumber, geez, I just started to tear up.

Miss you Baru!

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 09:45 AM

I will always miss Baruchito now, and he's part of my memories and cherishment now.

I also have nice images like LL Cool F being run over by a car and dying, thats a nice image :) altough it'd be better if the municipality just came and picked up the trash instead :)

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 10:32 AM

So sorry to hear about Baru!!! Hopefully, he's scampering about in hamster heaven now!!

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 01:15 PM

I love this website but this is the first time I've been moved to post. Poor little Baru. RIP and thanks for the smiles you've given me.

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 02:17 PM

I'm sorry to hear about little Baru. It's so sad when our loved ones pass, whether they be two-leggeds or fours. They're a part of our families.

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 03:23 PM

My first exposure to this site, I saw pics and read about Baru and I'm in the library, crying instead of working on my resume. What a sweetie, thanks for the photos and the love you gave this adorable, soft, tiny creature. That definitely was a smile he gave you! I'm so sorry for your loss, God bless you for your caring heart.

 |  Jan 30, 2006 at 04:36 PM

R.I.P, little Baruchito. :(
