Oinky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Oinky
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: New York, New York, USA
   I got Oinky when he was five weeks old. I never knew how chubby he was going to be when I first got him. About two years ago, our vet said that he was obese (very obsese) and that he had to go on a diet. since then, he lost some weight, but he is still pretty chubby. He "oinks" every single time when he hears the refrigerator door opening, because he wants a snack. He loves being held. When I hold him, almost each time he falls asleep.
