About Us
Beanie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Beanie
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Silkie Guinea Pig
Home: Pennsylvania, USA
   Beanie, who got her name from jumping around like a Mexican Jumping Bean, is one of the gentlest animals I have ever owned. She lets me dress her up, as I do for each holiday, and she will just sit there with a look on her face saying, "are all humans this strange?" She sits patiently because she knows there are treats following this strange ritual. She loves to eat at her dining room table and sleep in her canopy bed. She wheeeeeeeps when I come home and purrs gently when held. Beanie was my first guinea pig and then along came Baxter and well now I have a family of six. Who knows, maybe there will be more pictures to come.
