Mikey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mikey
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Dickinson, Texas, USA
   My name is Landon, and I am seven years old. This is our Guinea pig Mikey, he is five years old. As you can see, he is a big boy and loves to eat!! When we open the refrigerator he starts squealing for food. You name it, and he eats it. He loves to hide in his house in his cage. He also likes to dump out his food bowl. As soon as we fill it up, he dumps it out. He is a naughty piggie, but we love him just the way he is. He had to have surgery last summer because he had a tumor, but he is fine now. We were really scared. I hope he lives forever, because I love him! As you can tell by where my hands are. His fur makes him look bigger than he is - I promise I am not squashing him! This was the best way we could get a picture showing his black-and-white underside. Doesn't it look like someone painted him a stripe?
