Crockett, the Pet of the Day
Name: Crockett
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Exeter, England
   Crockett came from a pet shop with his brother Tubbs and from the day I brought him home I knew he was going to be a handful. He has the most demanding personality, and will wait by the kitchen door every morning at 7 a.m. for his breakfast. Even at weekends I have to get up at 7 a.m. as I can't bear the thought of him waiting for me. Yes, he has me trained!

    In January of this year, Crockett lost his brother Tubbs who was his best friend, they did everything together. Tubbs was the quiet one and would let Crockett throw his weight around, I would often find Tubbs cleaning Crockett, and they always slept together in their pigloo even though it was very cramped. It took Crockett until May to fully get over the death of his brother and is now acting like himself again. I think for that reason he should be honored. He is my best friend and I love him with all my heart.
