Welcome to Dashing Hamsters. I created this website back in 2005, initially to have a place to share my love of hamsters. Throughout the years I have come across a lot of information that just often doesn't match up. Care standards and information are outdated, and these little creatures are misunderstood by many. So I decided to make this website as more than just a hamster lover's website, but a hamster website for modern owners who are looking for up to date advice on how to care for and understand their beloved hamsters. On DH you can learn about hamsters, see some cute pictures and read through a hamster filled blog.

Sorry Folks

Hello everyone,
I am sorry for pretty much abandoning this blog, Lumiel passed away on March 20, 2013, he did not even spend a year with me. I was quite upset over losing another hamster so suddenly and out of the blue and needed a break from hamsters in general.
I am hoping to be able to get back into the swing of things soon, however I do not know how often I will be able to update this website for a little while longer.
I just wanted to give everyone that used to read this an update.
I hope everyone has happy holidays.



  1. I am so sorry about your hamster! :(

  2. What can I say dear Holly... I still feel the taste of loss in my mouth after Nutka's departure this morning... Strange to think, I do not despair this time. I wept, but I'm full of hope. I wish you the same :-*

  3. WOW! You and your blog are great! I love it!
    I have a blog, too, but it isn't as good as yours.
    You WERE and you ARE my inspiration. :)
    If you want to see my blog I will be very happy!


    I'm waiting for new post :D
    Alice :)
