Spike, the Pet of the Day
Name: Spike
Age: Six months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Guinea Pig
Home: Kissimmee, Florida, USA
   This 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.
