Sammy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sammy
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Armstrong, British Columbia, Canada
   Sammy is special because he is the son of my first guinea pig who died just after giving birth to him. He is gentle and he is going to be dad very soon! Sammy is affectionate and loves to be held. He will spend hours on my lap! He talks so much and 'purrs' when he is happy. If he wants my attention he calls me with his squeaks. He will stand on his hind legs and beg for fresh carrots and apple pieces. His favorite game is hiding in a towel when I hold him on my lap. He has a wife who lives with him now so he isn't as demanding of my attention! I don't mind his demanding my attention though, because I love to hold him and he loves to be held. He has never bitten anyone. I think this is because I held him within minutes of his birth, and raised him myself because of his mother's death, and have not stopped holding him!
