Guiny, the Pet of the Day
Name: Guiny
Age: 4.5 years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: The Hague, South Holland, the Netherlands
   Guiny is my oldest sow, and currently the eldest of all the Winky gang. She was probably born around the end of March in 2004. Guiny is a smooth-haired guinea pig in black, brown and white. She's a real character and used to be the leader of the Winky girls. Well most of her time at least, when I just got her she was very scared, and Lotje would boss her around. But that soon changed and Guiny grew in to a well fed somewhat chubby pig. She never really was a people's pig, but does appreciate our presence. She will come looking for us during floortime.

    Nowadays as she is getting older she is a real cuddle pig and loves to lie on my lap. She used to be hard to catch cause she could run very fast (doing '8'-shaped laps) and would not go back into the cage when we let her out. Guiny would have to be persuaded into the blue carriage (which was actually a house/loo) and was then carried in that into the cage. This has earned her the name 'Lady Guinyvere'.
