   This is my piggy Guinness - He's a great pig with a great personality!

    How we met: I was looking for a pet right after I moved into my new apartment. I went to the pet store thinking I would buy a rabbit. When I took a look at them and thought about it, I realized it would be a lot of work. So I went over to the hamsters and gerbils and considered getting one of them. The salesperson suggested a guinea pig, I had never thought of that. I walked over to that cage, which had an open top, and went to pet some. I put my hand down, and this little piggy jumped in it - and so I picked him up. I just had to take him since he choose me.

    Guinness is a cool piggy. He has such a fun personality, and cooperates with me taking his picture a million times. They don't always come out great, as he is such a dark color, but he's just so cute! He loves to play and to eat, and just seeing his cheerful self and hearing him squeak in greeting at me when I come home makes me smile every day. I love him very much.
