About Us
Nibbles, Brownie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Nibbles, Brownie
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Saratoga County, New York, USA
   Here are Nibbles and Brownie, two of our three guinea pigs. Known collectively as "The Fatties," to distinguish from their svelt boyfriend Thor, they also answer to "Queen Nibbles" and "The Brownmeister."

    Nibbles says, "Daddy originally didn't want to buy me, because he knew mommy would want to get me a friend, and the house would eventually be full of guinea pigs. But he fell in love with me quickly, and they went out and brought me back Brownie as a companion one month later. I'm the spokespig, my friend Brownie is very quiet and shy. I work hard, doing all the squealing for food and attention, but Brownie only talks when she's getting her nails clipped."

    Working from home, I get to spend a lot of time with my pig buddies. My wife and I lavish a lot of love (and greens) on our affectionate little friends.
