Ginger, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ginger
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Boulder, Colorado, USA
   Hi, my name is Ginger. I live in Ms Smith's first grade classroom at Foothill Elementary. I love to sit on the kids' laps as they read books to me. I nibble carrots and parsley all day. I squeak whenever I hear a plastic bag. I always hope there'll be a snack in it for me!

    Ginger (and Jack, the male guinea pig) are held constantly during the day, and read to. The teacher comes in on weekends, and they go home with her on vacations. Ginger is expecting babies in two months. She once had nine in one litter! Both guinea pigs' cages are right in our "meeting circle" (where the class gathers for stories, sharing and group discussions) so the guinea pigs get attention all day long!
