fell in love with Darjeeling (DJ for short) this past July while
recovering from a painful surgery. He was nothing but a tiny bit of
fluff then, living in a questionable pet store with older, meaner guinea
pigs. I had to take him home immediately and spoil him. I spent weeks
going to the library and looking all over the internet to figure out how
to make him happy, and finally decided that he needed a furry friend.
We contacted a local shelter, and in no time we were driving to
Pennsylvania to get Jack. He fit into the family perfectly, and now
Jack and DJ are the best of friends. Jack likes to sit on my husband's
chest and nibble his shirt, while DJ sits on my shoulder and lifts his
chin to remind me where he likes to be scratched. My husband and I are
now fully-trained guinea pig slaves, and just can't imagine our lives
any other way.
