||One and a half years old|
||New Philadelphia, Ohio, USA|
this is Toby Mac. He was named after a Great Gospel singer Toby
Mac. He is a wonderful guinea pig. I used to take him to school so the
kids could play with him until we had a complaint of allergies to him. The
kids really miss him now, but we can not have someone not feeling well at
school. It is a shame some people have allergies to such sweet critters.
Anyway Toby lives with some other buddies at our home in Ohio. There's
another guinea pig named Teddy, two Degu friends Dig dig and Cupid, whom
he loves to cuddle with outside in the summertime, and a visiting guinea
Spot. Toby came to us from a friend at church that didn't have time for
him and they asked if I wanted him. I had lost my other guinea in May and
thought it was finally time for another. He was very afraid when he came
to us, but the constant attention from my kids and I, and even my husband,
brought him out of his shell very quickly. He now loves to be held while I
am sitting in a chair, but also loves to roam around the house whenever he
gets the chance. I am so glad friends offered him to me. I hope he lives a
long wonderful life with us. You rock, Toby!
