About Us
DJ, Jack, the Pet of the Day
Name: DJ, Jack
Age: Five, Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Newark, Delaware, USA
   I 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.
