Gender: Female
Kind: Himalayan Guinea pig

   Hi, This is Dunya! Piggie wheeks to everypig and person. I am a Himalayan piggie. I haven't been in my herd for a real long time yet. I am almost a year old. My cagemates always talk about themselves as the Winky girls. I don't even know who this Winky piggie is? I am most of the time very scared and sitting in my cage, trying not to move when these scary hand things come in my cage. There seems to be veggies in the cage after they come though. I also wheek very loud when anything comes near me. When I get to run on the floor, there are these two other piggies, I think they are called Lotje and Guiny. I mostly run away very fast, so they won't catch me.

    I used to live with a whole bunch of other piggies at a woman that breeds piggies. I couldn't stay there because I wasn't pretty enough. (Mikey says: Dunya has a little cute white stripe on her nose, which makes her unsuitable for breeding, because she's supposed to have an all brown nose for a perfect himalayan look, and her kids will get this 'flaw' too.) I hope I can stay here and be friends with Lotje and Guiny. I used to climb on my shelter to look at them in the other cage. Now I share a cage with them. Lotje seems to be nice, but Guiny seems to be wanting to boss me around, I don't know if I will let her get away with that. I guess this is all I will write for now, because I fear I will get picked up if I stay out of my shelter too long. Bye bye!

    Oh, by the way, I instructed my slave Mikey to send you the video they made from me too. It was shot around christmas, it was one of the first times I had floortime. I got to run through Auntie Janneke's living room, I really liked it as you can see me running, and running and running around the Christmas aka Piggie Tree!
