Porkchop, the Pet of the Day
Name: Porkchop
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Tricolor Guinea Pig
Home: Richardson, Texas, USA
   I wish to nominate Porkchop, a four-year-old guinea pig. He's a tricolor boar with a lot of personality! He resides in Richardson, Texas and he loves the weather there. We've had Porkchop since he was a young teenager. He's very friendly and loves to be held. He loves to watch TV with us too. We hold him on a towel and pet him and he snuggles down into the towel and falls asleep! He really loves to eat! We keep him in a baby wading pool as a cage and he likes it a lot. He can peak over the top to see what's going on and it gives him a lot of room. Once, when food was coming his way, he was leaning so far over the edge of the pool, that he fell out onto the carpet. He didn't know what to do with himself! He squeaks when anyone opens the refrigerator door or if anyone ruffles a plastic bag. We just got him a new friend too. We haven't named her yet. They love to roam around the backyard and eat grass. You can read more about Porkchop and the new piglet at their home page.
