Tanner, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tanner
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Satin Peruvian Guinea Pig
Home: Upstate New York, USA
   This is my one-year-old orange and white Satin Peruvian Guinea pig Tanner. I adopted him from a local humane society about six months ago. He has been a joy to have around. Tanner loves to go outside and eat the grass. Tanner and my dog have been best friends from the start. Tanner and I reside in Upstate New York.

    Tanner loves to be petted and held. He hates his baths but loves to be towel dried afterwards. Tanner will chew anything he can reach, including the door that is next to his cage and his leash, which I have to use since he is such a fast runner. Tanner only knows one trick, follow the lettuce. He will follow lettuce around in circles all day until he reaches it. He is a very loving and affectionate guinea pig who would patiently wait all day for our petting time, his favorite time of the day, after outside time of course.

   Here is a video of tanner eating dandelions.
