Lucy Lou, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lucy Lou
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: English Merino Guinea Pig
Home: Victoria, Australia
   This is my guinea pig Lucy Lou. We both live in Victoria Australia. Lucy had a pretty awful start to life. Her owner kept them all together in a big cage, boars and sows running together.

    When I got Lucy she and I clicked instantly. She snuggled up close to me. She had been cleaned up and was ready to take home. Five weeks later she gave birth to three beautiful babies, sadly two of which died. The remaining one, a little rex sow was named Hillary. The two of them now live with Molly, Minky and I, happily eating their favorite food, lettuce, and other good piggie foods.

    Lucy is special because she only likes to be held by me! She snuggles under my chin and wheeks away softly. She is a gorgeous pig, we all love her to bits.
