Toby, the Pet of the Day
Name: Toby
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: New Philadelphia, Ohio, USA
   Hello, 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!
