CoCo, the Pet of the Day
Name: CoCo
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Breed: Guinea Pig
Home: Virginia, USA
 
   CoCo is quite a character. He is my third Guinea Pig I have owned and is very smart. On weekends he loves to sleep under his blanket for hours! I'll ask him to go "peepee" before putting him on the couch. He knows many other vocal commands too, such as "KissKiss." Before breakfast each morning his kiss is a sniff on my mouth. He knows the word "no" but as many pets, he doesn't always listen! Of course, he knows his name and when running around, all I have to do is call him and he'll brush up against me and purr. He can stand up on his hind legs and beg - but what animal won't do that trick? He is a lap pig, very affectionate and like people he has his moody days. We had fun setting up the set for the picture of CoCo about two years ago. He was cooperative (only because we put parsley in the sleigh!).
