Hillary, the Pet of the Day
Name: Hillary
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Rex Guinea Pig
Home: Victoria, Australia
   This is my guinea pig, Hillary, also called Hilly! She is a Rex guinea pig. Hillary was named after the famous Rock Climber 'Edmund Hillary' because when she was a baby, she would climb up our jumpers to sit on our shoulders. Hillary has always been a special piggy. She is the boldest pig I know, and doesn't care a bit if you come over and pick her up while she is playing, although while she is eating is another matter. Hilly is the boss of the herd, and has been so from when she was just eight weeks old! Hilly is very vocal and will definitely tell you if she is hungry, cold or bored. She is a very special piggy!
