Willy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Willy
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: California, USA
   Willy is special because I got him for my tenth birthday! Two weeks before my birthday my mom asked me if there was something special I wanted. Well, I had been waiting for this question for months! I had read about guinea pigs online for weeks when I finally decided I wanted one of my own. My mom drove me down to the nearest pet store and I got to pick out a guinea pig! I picked a skinny black fellow with white feet, and a white, and brown stripe. I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. We brought him home and set up his cage! He went without a name for a few days, then when my sister and I watched the movie "Free Willy" with my new pig, the name came! Willy!

    Willy loves to nibble on hay while watching his favorite movie, Tombstone, which we have watched together sixteen times! I love him very much and I am sure he loves me, too, because he's spoiled rotten! I talk to him every single day and when I leave - I do have to go to school - he squeaks for me to come back! I love him tons, and he always puts a smile on my face! He is the best birthday present ever.
