Pig-my, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pig-my
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Dallas, Texas, USA
   Pig-my is a very special guinea pig. She is almost never quiet, and she loves to be petted. I've had her since she was six weeks old. When I first got her home she couldn't figure out how to drink from her water bottle. She would bite the metal tube using her bottom teeth to push in the metal ball. Besides being messy since she got water all over her chin she would often pull the bottle down and scare herself. After a few weeks she discovered a better but rather unusual way of getting water. Now she opens her mouth as wide as possible and sticks her whole mouth around the metal tube, then she sticks out he tongue to push the ball in and let the water out. Maybe some day she'll figure out that licking the ball is even easier. She's not your typical guinea pig, from the way she drinks her water to the fact that she likes to chew on paper clips.
