Lucy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lucy
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA
   Lucy is our little trooper. She is one of six but by far the bravest. She has endured more vet visits, shots, baths, and medications than one small pig should ever have to. She has had skin problems, lumps and bumps, and various other ailments. We have almost lost her twice but she keeps pulling through. She is such a sweet pig, and so brave that she deserves to be honored. We are also glad we have a good vet!

    She snuggled with my husband the first moment he picked her up--not scared or timid. She is a very gentle pig. She will snuggle for hours. Lucy is our "polite" piggy. Even her popcorning is polite. We love her very much and hope she lives a long, full life.

    She goes by Lucy Liu, Lu-pie, Snugglebug, Sweet Pea, all of which give you even more an indication of her personality.
