||Six months old|
||Kissimmee, Florida, USA|
is our little boy, Spike. Spike was accidentally dropped the first
day we brought him home by our three-year-old daughter, Grace. He was
paralyzed from the waist down, and we thought he wouldn't survive. Our
other daughters, Lauren and Meghan were devastated. Hoping to lift Spike's
spirits, we brought home a female companion for him, "Big Mama". Needless
to say, a few weeks later Spike was scooting around and doing great! He is
six months old now and still does not have normal function of his legs but
he has learned how to use his upper body strength for most of his
movement. He is such an outgoing and affectionate guinea pig, and
everybody's sweetheart (including Big Mama). He is an inspiration to
everyone he meets and we love him.
