||Eleven months old|
||Holland, Michigan, USA|
got Luv Bug after my cat died - she was just this tiny little thing that wanted
to hide and always made loads of noise. She always wheeked for things,
whatever I had, and always wheeked when I left the room, She was loud, she
wanted me to know, and I loved her for it. She loves climbing, and strangely
if she can get her front paws and head over the top of it, she'll climb out,
so keeping her contained can be a difficult challenge. She loves cucumbers
and gets mad at me when she sees me eating them. So of course I have to
share. She is best friends with her brother Chiku the chinchilla, and they
love playing together in the hallway.
But even still these are not what makes Luv Special. What makes her special
is her ability to realize when I need her. Recently I've had a run of bad
luck, My grandfather/best friend passed away, my uncle is sick, and even she
might have permanent lung damage, but even with all that Luv is always ready
to cuddle me, or lay and watch tv with me as long as I need her to- all the
while giving me kisses and cuddling close as if to let me know everything's
okay. If I move, she'll kiss me. If I start crying she'll move over and lick
my tears off my face then keep licking me so I sort of smile because it
tickles, and she keeps licking me till the smile stays on my face. She is the
sweetest kindest Guinea pig that I know. and I love her very much and I think
that that's what makes her special to the rest of you- her unconditional Love
and knowledge on a way to make me smile when I need it. And even if you may
not agree with me on my reasonings, I still think she's the greatest. I love
her very much. If I didn't I wouldn't have named her Luv Bug!
