Piggie Smalls, the Pet of the Day
Name: Piggie Smalls
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Langhorne, Pennsylvania, USA
   Hi, I'm Piggie Smalls (A.K.A. The Notorious P.I.G.) My Mommy and Daddy say that I'm the sweetest and best guinea pig that ever lived (and they have had a few). I am a true "lap pig," and will sit for hours curled up on a lap, taking a nap. I seem to induce the same state in others - I have a very calming and relaxing effect on whomever is holding me! I never bite (but I'm happy to lick a hand all over), and I purr when I am scratched under my chin. Of course, I will eat practically anything, but I love cherry tomatoes, celery tops, green beans, and grapes. I usually snub my guinea pig pellets, but will condescend to eat them if Mommy puts nothing else in my bowl. I am truly a big sweetheart (2 1/2 pounds!) and am very much loved.
