Coby and Ollie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Coby, Ollie
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Los Angeles, California, USA
   Some people say guinea pigs don't have personality. I'd like them to spend one day with these two! We found Coby and Ollie together in a pet store and they've been inseparable ever since. We're not sure if they're brothers (their coloring is similar but they might be different breed mixes), but they do look out for each other like siblings. When one wheaks for food, the other joins right in, creating a duet of adorable guinea sounds. When one decides to explore uninhabited regions behind our sofas or under tables, the other follows right behind. Their cage opens onto the floor so, when we're home to watch them, they enjoy free reign around the house. Nothing is cuter than watching two furry footballs scurry across the living room, seemingly on an important mission, only to plop down for a snooze.

    I can't even begin to describe the joy our two "guinea kids" bring to our lives. They amaze us every day with funny facial expressions and sounds and those lovable idiosyncrasies only guinea pig owners could understand! Thanks for being such great pets, guys! We love you!
