Rodney, the Pet of the Day
Name: Rodney
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   Rodney is our first 'grandchild.' We had been hoping for a grandchild for years, but as of Christmas 1999 still not one even on the way. At the family gift opening time, my daughter handed us a Christmas bag saying: "Here is your grandchild." Inside was one very terrified Guinea pig. He is ugly to some people but he is cute at the same time! He is also spoiled, as is the (human) granddaughter who finally arrived about a year later. Rodney does not do any tricks, but he really makes a commotion whenever he hears paper rustle, because he thinks it's his bag of alfalfa being opened. He spends most of his days and nights in his cage. Each morning he gets a large salad of baby carrots, celery stalks, apple slices and romaine lettuce in addition to his bin of pellets.
