||Teddy Guinea Pig|
||Niskayuna, New York, USA|
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!
