    My family got a tan, black,

    and white guinea pig for Christmas when I was seven and we named her Linny after the character from the Wonder Pets. She wasn't the kind of guinea pig who ran around a lot, and she really liked lettuce and being held. She had health issues like arthritis and sores on her feet...

    I was eight years old. I don't remember all the details, but I adopted a small golden guinea pig with black stripes who I affectionately named Stripes. She was a little sweetheart. I think we adopted her from someone who was moving away and couldn't keep her. Anyway, we had for...

    I'm Really Missing Him

    The sad thing about this is it's called 'I HAD a guinea pig' because you don't have your special little gal or guy anymore. I lost my guinea pig November last year. He was blonde with pink feet and huge, wise black eyes. He used to look at me with those eyes and I'd talk to him...

    I miss my Charlie Boy. I won't ever get another one, because there won't be another like him. :) He was just like a dog when I came home, he didn't bark but he screamed like crazy until I showed him love. :) He made me smile, until his last day! I miss my man!

    This guinea pig was my favorite. Every time I called out to her and asked if snowball would like some lettuce. She would start sqealing from a low pitch to a high pitch. (Like slowly increacing in volume.) Plus she then ran around inside her cage. Oh she...

    When I first got my guinea pig Charlie, I was super excited. I was scared at first when he would sit in the corner. Eventually he would come out and eat some food of of my hand. He was a very normal guinea pig. Surprisingly he never bit me or went to the bathroom on me. One day...

    Once, in the first grade, I babysat a friend's beloved guinea pig, Rosalina. After that, my guinea pig craze began. I begged and begged my mother to get me one, "I'll take care of him, I swear!" I would say. "No, we have too many pets as it is," she would reply every time. But...

    The Guinea Pig And Rabbit Life

    Ever since my Guinea Pig was born i put her with my female Bunny. They loved each-other. The Guinea Pig thought of her as a mother. The bunny would not eat or drink unless the Guinea Pig ate first. She defended the Guinea Pig and took care of her. Sadly, this week, my Guinea Pig...

    Her name was Winnie. She was dark, dark brown, and perhaps medium-sized. We got her from my aunt. I was young. I'd always wanted an animal besides a fish. I was so happy. I loved Winnie. The poor wretch must have hated me, but how I loved her. But then I was feeding er a carrot...
