was a wonderful, sweet guinea pig with a load of curiosity. I
first begged my mom for a guinea pig, but she was definitely not so happy
with this idea...so she said no way. Well, after a few bribes, I got her
to finally agree on a deal, if I make "Head Master's List" (school--all
a's and 1 or 2 b's) I could get a guinea pig. Well, after, that quarter
of studying hard and good grades, I came home with HML! So, on my
birthday (about two weeks later) I went to the pet store, and came home
with one very special guinea pig - Ozzy.
Ozzy was a very curious guinea pig, and loved his igloo that we put
inside his cage. He loved carrots and timothy hay. I only had him for
about a few weeks, but it seems like forever! Ozzy was so sweet,
especially when I was holding him. He loved to chew on things like wood
and my shag rug, and my carpet, silly Ozzy!!
I never had any type of "small animal" like this before, and never
thought I would, but there I was with a little cage in my room and
little fuzzy pig! My mom used to not like guinea pigs, but after we got
Ozzy, she actually loved him!
Since he was an Abyssinian, he had a numerous amount of "rosettes",
or swirls of hair, on him. He had cute little natural mohawk, which is
why we named him Ozzy, because it sounded like a crazy name for crazy
pig!! I loved him so much, and hoped to have him for a very long time.
Sadly Ozzy died one day quite suddenly. It was very unexpected and it
was untreatable. I came home, popped off his igloo because he hadn't
come out to greet me, and there he was lying on his side. It was
pneumonia and doctors say it is almost always fatal, and they were
unable to treat him. I am still not sure now if I will get another
piggie, we loved him so much.
