||One month old|
||Texel Guinea Pig|
||Glenfield, Auckland, New Zealand|
pet's name is Stormy. He is one month old, the picture, though, is of
him at one day old. He is much bigger now, and still growing, but I love
this picture of him. I think that Stormy is special as he was born from
my pet guinea pig, so I have known him his whole life! He is a red
Texel guinea pig, and I love his wavy copper-colored fur. That's how you
can tell he is a Texel - normal guinea pigs have smooth fur, and
Abyssinians have long straight fur, but Texels have this interesting texture.
I have handled him from day one and he is a lovely character. He is so
sweet, and never bites. And of course, he is absolutaly gorgeous, as the
picture shows. He is absolutely darling, and is just about as sweet as a
guinea pig can be. He has a sisiter called Cloudy, she was born
with an eye condtion and is blind in that eye, but Stormy and she don't
really seem to notice that much at all. They play and scamper like happy
little pigs should. Stormy is a handsome boy and a very special pig to me.
