||Nine weeks old|
||Abyssinian Guinea Pig|
||San Diego, California, USA|
my name is Snickers. One day I saw this lady come in to the pet store.
She was buying a cage and other stuff. Then she came and looked at us
and picked me and my sister up. She took my sister home. The next day
she came back with my sister and told the people at the pet store that
something was wrong with her. She was sick and died that day. I was sad.
Then she came and looked at me and a another guinea pig. She picked me.
I was so happy to go home. When I got home my mommy saw that I was
limping. She took me to the vet. I have a little broken leg. But that is
getting better. I also have some cuts on me because bigger guinea pigs
would pick on me. The cuts are healing up and I am happy to have a home.
My mommy loves me and my daddy says I'm ok. But I know he loves me
because he picks me up and holds me and loves on me. And their daughter
(my sister) is nuts about me. I love my to be held. I make cuddling
noises at my mommy, and I beg for food. I am having so much fun. My
mommy is very proud of me. She says I am a real handsome, sweet man. And
I know it.
