Pickles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Pickles
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Illinois, USA
   Pickles Hamlet is my pet and he is quite a comedian. He has quite a personality. He loves to run races in his cage, he likes to play with his wood chews, and he even tries to climb, this is why we nicknamed him Monkey. Pickles can never have too much Timothy hay either!

    I have trained this little guy to do a few tricks, I trained him to let us scratch his chin, he lifts his head when we give him the thumbs up so we can scratch under his chin. I also trained him to let us know when he has to go "tinkle" so he does not wet on us and in one year, he has only had one accident. Very impressive, and I still maintain it was my fault since I took too long to get him back to his cage.

    He loves to beg for his carrots, standing up on his hind legs and he can even walk through his hoops. He has at least half an hour of playtime every day in his playpen and he has about an hour or two of sitting time where he can roam on my couch (with my supervision of course) and he is groomed and brushed.

    I love my Pickles so much, people say I spoil him but I think he spoils me. There is no better feeling than when I come home from work and he is sitting with his little face in his cage awaiting to greet me and give me piggy kisses!

    This is why my Pickles is the Best Pet and why I love my little guy so much!
