Milagro, the Pet of the Day
Name: Milagro
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: South Burlington, Vermont, USA
   This is my guinea pig, Milagro. That is Spanish for "miracle," and that he is. Two days before Thanksgiving, my friend Jessica, her brother Dylan and her mother took me to a UVM Basket ball game. We were walking out to their car, when Dylan shouted, "Oh my goodness! A guinea pig!" Jessica and I kept walking. Dylan kept saying it. Jessica gasped, and said the same thing. I kept walking. As I was about to step down, a little fuzzy head white and brown head pops out. So, the search began. We chased the guinea pig under about three cars, and back. Finally, he was trapped. I started to bend down, when Jessica grabbed him. We ran back to the car, laughing, screaming, and smiling. The poor guinea pig was shivering, and trembling. We convinced my mother to let me keep him until they got back from their holiday in New York. Well, we had him for perhaps a day when mother said, "I think we should keep him." Well, you know the rest. He is ours, he has a warm home, he is now a healthy piggie, as you can see, and he is loved! He doesn't seem to get along with my hedgehog Napoleon, but lives fairly well with my bird, Josiphine.
