About Us
Teddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Teddy
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Teddy Guinea Pig
Home: Niskayuna, New York, USA
   When Teddy first came into our lives he was a shy little piggy. The little guy hid in the box we brought him home in, and would only peek his head out of his hut once in his cage. He since has grown to become a chubby piggy who loves relaxing and eating, especially! He squeals when he hears the refrigerator door open and loves to "talk" when watching TV. He's bigger than most other guinea pigs. When we brought him to the vet and they weighed him in, he weighed more than one of the dogs there! He has the sweetest demeanor and is outgoing around those who know him. He definitely has become part of our family!

    Teddy is a very calm guinea pig. When we take him outside, rather than running around, he likes to just sit and eat the grass! We often hear him snoring from inside his cage. He is fascinated by the TV, with all of its bright colors, and just loves watching SpongeBob. He really loves anything with bright colors. We put newspaper in the bottom of his cage underneath the bedding and Teddy will dig around and rip out the colorful comics! He's a curious piggy and likes looking in mirrors (he thinks it's a friend!). Teddy is incredibly loving for a somewhat shy pig. If we put our faces up to him he'll touch his nose against ours! He likes to cuddle, too, when watching TV. All the while he'll just chat away with his little squeaky voice. We like to think he recognizes his name - he certainly does if we say it while holding a carrot! Teddy knows what he wants out of life; food, company, and relaxation. He inspires us all to sit down and take a break every once in a while!
