Do you have a best friend?

This is my boy, Ham.  His real name is Hamlet.  (His parents were fans of a guy named William Shakespeare.)  Everyone calls him Ham for short. It’s his nickname.  I love Ham more than anyone  else. I’ve known Ham as long as I can remember. We met when we were babies. We do everything together. We are best friends!

If you’re curious, then join Eggs the dog as he explores the crazy world of humans.  He and his boy Ham make every moment special.
