Coco, the Pet of the Day
Name: Coco
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
   Hi, my name is Coco, but I go by many nicknames: Coco Girl, Coco Puff, Coco Bean, Royal Hineyness, and so on. As you can see from my picture, I am quite the cutie (which my mom tells me obsessively). Aside from enjoying my daily dose of fresh field grass, I also love my baby carrots (organic only please), dandelion, swiss chard, parsley, radicchio, and kale. Oh, did I mention I am also quite fond of these treats called Raviolio's? I used to live with my sister Emma, but she sadly passed shortly after I arrived. I am now the only piggie, and Queen of my domain. I have two houses - my day house where I live while Mommy is at work, and then in the evening, I move to my evening house, floor time in the spare bedroom, where I run as fast as my little legs will take me. Oh, did I mention that I love chewing on newspaper?

    Please let me introduce you to my pride and joy - Coco. As you can see by her picture, Coco is quite a beauty, and definitely the apple of her mommy's eye. Aside from her obvious cuteness, Coco has the sweetest, most gentle personality. When I first got her from the shelter, she would lick my bottom lip like there was no tomorrow, showering me with her "piggie kisses". She is extremely sweet, and always ready to please. She also has an obsession with cleanliness. Coco makes me smile every day when I get home, as she starts to popcorn like crazy and run around the moment I walk into her room, darting in and out of her fleece cozy tunnels. No matter how bad my day has been, she never fails to put a smile on my face and make me forget how crummy I feel. She is truly a special little angel, and I love her to death. In my eyes, she is the best piggie in the world, and Pet of the Day every day in my eyes.
