About Us
Gizmo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Gizmo
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Omaha, Nebraska, USA
   Gizmo is my little "Sweetie Bug." She is a very special little guinea pig, simply because she's such a little goofball. She's a very spoiled little girl (she has me trained well).

    When I come home from work, I walk in the door and the first thing I say is "Hi Sweetie Bug!"...then I hear nothing but "Wheeeep, wheeep, wheeeeeep..." until I pick her up and she snuggles right up into my neck and purrs. I set her down again, and it's "Wheeeeep, wheeep wheeeeep," until I give her her beloved carrots and lettuce. Then I'm free to check my e-mail. I don't dare sit down at the computer before I have gone through this "routine," or she'll sure let me know! She certainly keeps me entertained. I can't imagine life without my little "Punkin' Seed."
