Yeah, that's pretty much the extent of this puppy's interaction with a ringing cell but CUTE is CUTE!
When a pet gets sick and doesn't have much time left, many incredible families will create bucket lists to make the animal's last days his very best. Bucket lists often happen for dying dogs — but this time, it's a hamster who's getting the adventure of a lifetime.
Robin Williams is a 2-year-old longhaired Syrian hamster, also known as a teddy bear hamster, from Chicago. He lives with his mom, dad and two bunny siblings, Poppy and Pippin. He fits right in with them.
"He weighs almost a whole pound and is probably the biggest hamster people have ever seen," Robin's mom, Arden, told The Dodo. "People often mistake him for a guinea pig."
The three siblings do absolutely everything together and never once has Robin seemed out of place. It seemed the threesome would be together forever — until forever got cut short.
Recently, Robin's family found out some tragic news: He has a tumor taking up most of his abdomen, and it can't be removed without risking his life. While the news is devastating, Robin's family has decided to make sure that his last days are his absolute best. He has already been on many trips and adventures throughout his life, and thanks to his new bucket list, he's about to embark on quite a few more.
No one knows exactly how much time Robin has left, so he's going to keep on adventuring until his time his up. Some of the items still left on his bucket list include: take a selfie at "The Bean," eat a Chicago hot dog, give LOTS of kisses to his bunny siblings … and be featured on The Dodo! Luckily, we were able to help Robin out with that last one.
Robin may be dying, but his family and friends are making sure that he goes out as the happiest, most loved hamster there ever was — and that's all that really matters in the end.
"He has been a huge part of our life," Arden said, "and all we want to do is make the rest of his the best it can be."

Her name means "light snow," but this cat's stare is nothing but fire.
Koyuki is a 9-year-old Scottish Fold who's become famous in Japan thanks to her impressively judgmental gaze. Because no matter what she's doing, the social media star glares at the camera with the white-hot intensity of a thousand burning suns.

When Penny's family brought home a baby, they might've been a tad worried about how the family dog would react to a new human in her home. But in reality, they had nothing to fear.
When Penny's little brother finally came home, Penny, a doting and loyal Shiba Inu, immediately fell in love with him — and took it upon herself to show him how to cuddle, among many other important life lessons.
Wherever her new baby brother goes, that's where Penny goes, too. If the little guy is being held by someone else, well, Penny tags along. She even whimpers when he starts to cry.
He only just arrived, but it seems like this little boy is already the luckiest little brother in the whole world.

"Guess which one of us likes to work out?
There’s nothing quite like the bond between a little boy and his four-legged friend. And, thanks to a mom and her camera, the rest of the world can enjoy the adorableness that's become an Internet sensation.
Grace Chon, a commercial photographer based in Los Angeles, has plenty of experience taking pictures of children and pets, and found a winning combo in the pair right in her own home: Jasper, her 10-month-old son, and Zoey, her 7-year-old rescue dog adopted from Taiwan. When she photographed them together wearing matching hats, the positive response led her to create a Tumblr photo series devoted to the pair.
“I have a lot of really cute hats for Jasper, and its just really fun to put him in them,” Chon told about what inspired the “Zoey and Jasper” series.
“And one day I realized it looked really good on Zoey; it fit her perfectly and she looked adorable. So I had this one hat and I took photos of [Zoey and Jasper] separately. And my sister was like, ‘you need to take a picture of them together wearing that hat.’ So we did it, and I shared it on Facebook and people reacted really well to it. So I kind of kept going with it ever since.”
