Truffles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Truffles
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Colorado, USA
   This is my guinea pig Truffles, he came to me one early morning in December 2004, it happened to be Christmas morning and like every thirteen-year-old on I had a hard night sleep and at about 6:30am I ran into my parents room and wanted so bad to see what was down there. To my surprise it was a guinea pig, I had always wanted a guinea pig and now I finally had one!! My mom and I always talked about what I would name my pig, I said if he is brown and white, his name is going to be Truffles. So I named him Truffles. He was so young (only five months) and delicate, I didn't want to hurt him!

    Truffles is very affectionate, when he is out for play time he always runs up to my toes and kisses them and then skitters away! He loves to cuddle and when I go to get him out of his cage, he runs up to my hand and licks them! Right as soon as the sun comes up each day, he is up and chewing on the cage bars, he is very eager to start the day off early. When he hears me rustling out of bed he begs for his treat. He sure has grown into a handsome boy! He is just amazing!
