Patches, the Pet of the Day
Name: Patches
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Lakewood, Washington, USA
   Patches is a boar - that means he's a male, and a major nine-month-old guinea pig. I included his close-up, as it is hard to see his eyes from a distance because the fur around them is also black. And you can see his pink ear, the other ear is black.

    Patches is a unique boar, he thinks he is a dog he barks. That's right he barks! He has also has potty trained himself - he goes to his cage to do business . He chirps when he is wanting something, and when he wants to mate. We don't allow that, though. Patches is also special he squeaks when I need to do my blood sugar, because I am a diabetic and he seems to know when my sugar is low. These are just some of the reasons why he is special. He is also cute, but you can see that! He is a special little friend, and likes to be out exploring, but as I mentioned, always returns to his cage to do his business!
