Name: Liam

Kind: Abyssinian Guinea Pig

   Hi there! My name is Liam Smeagol! I was born on October the 10th, 2004. My daddy passed away just a few days after I was born, so my human gave me his first name as my middle name. Thus Liam Smeagol!

    I am the number one model on my human's website! I am what you would call a working pig! I try on the costumes that she sews, and she takes pictures of me! The only bad thing is, sometimes I have to wear a dress!!!! Yuckey!! Oh well! I always get a nice treat after!

    I am also a therapy pet! Actual all of the herd are therapy pets of sorts! Our human works at a nursing facility, and takes us there a few times a month to visit all the grandmas and grandpas that live there. We enjoy it, well everyone but my cage mate Froders. He just goes for the ride (he is a carnivore!) When we get there, we put on our nice clothes and go from room to room. We purr, eat parsley, and purr some more. Our human says that there are no free rides in life, that everyone must work. For us, modeling and pet therapy is our job. We love it! I have even had my picture in the paper for dressing up! Jay Leno wanted a video of us all dolled up, along with a few other shows!! If anyone is interested, our site where you can see more pictures of me - so that is my story! The story of Liam! Liam the great!
