Reggie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Reggie
Age: Deceased, Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: England, UK
   Reggie was our handsome tortoise shell and white guinea pig, he was seven or eight when he died, but we don't know his age for sure. My friend Emily and I rescued Reggie from a garden center. He was living with his two brothers who bullied him and one day attacked him. His owner was at her wits' end and so she offered him to us. We obviously accepted and named him Reg, because it sounded good and besides it was written on the box we received him in. We didn't even ask our parents first but they didn't really care, we had two female guinea pigs and a few rabbits already. Reggie was a very sweet pig, and enjoyed his food, being petted, and romps outside on the grass - always well-supervised, of course.

    During his life Reggie had two girlfriends, April, who died of cancer and was the same breed as him and Avril, whom we still have who is a long-haired guinea pig. Reggie actually managed to have babies with Avril. Reggie's best friend was my mum's rabbit, a butterfly lop-eared rabbit called Harry. Reggie will be sorely missed but he's with his many girly guinea pig friends in heaven now. Reggie was the best male guinea pig I've ever met and was so talkative.
