Baby Frankie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Baby Frankie
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Peruvian Guinea Pig
Home: Telford, UK
   This is my guinea pig Baby Frankie, he is a two-year-old boy. I named him Frankie after my uncle, because he has a bald patch on the middle of his head and so does Baby (which you can't really see because the rest of his fur flops over it).

    I got him around Easter time two years ago after my hamster had died and I decided I wanted a guinea pig. When I went into the pet shop all the guinea pigs looked the same, they were all short-haired ones and I didn't like any so I was about to leave then I saw Baby running along and squeaking. He looked like a big pile of messy fluff and I wanted him straight away. He's more like a little dog than a guinea pig, because he has his own bed, chew toy and harness.

    He and my mom have a special bond because whenever she goes to see him she calls out his name and he lets out a high-pitched voice but when I do it he just ignores me! He's the best guinea pig ever and I don't know what I'd do without him.
