||One year, two months old|
||Red Satinroan Guinea Pig|
is Apollon, and he is a Red Satinroan Guinea Pig. I saw this handsome
boy on a breeder's website, and I fell in love with him instantly, he looked
so sweet, and his coloring and coat - gorgeous! Apollon was born on
Valentine's Day last year, and he definitely fits having being born on that
day, he is very loving. He and his friend actually were bought by another
family some months ago, but returned them I was told, because their new dog
barked too much at the pigs. I am glad that that was all it took, then I had
the chance to get the wonderful duo, and the absolutely charming fella here!
When Apollon relaxes, I've noticed his bottom lip gets droopy, its like he
just melts as he flattens himself out, and his whole face is very square and
charismatic. He doesn't mind giving out "kisses" when being petted.
I only just brought him home recently along with his friend. But immediately
he was very calm and didn't mind sleeping out under my chin, where he would
lay all flat and relaxed. He is very sweet and loves attention, and he is a
very good tempered boy. He doesn't mind his bigger and older male chum using
him as a stepping-stool so he can take a peek out at the girls next door.
Apollon will just lay there sleeping as if nothing was happening, he doesn't
care at all, guess he doesn't mind helping his girl-crazy friend explore.
He likes to run around on the floor, but only if there is a carpet or
something, he doesn't much like the wooden floors, and he likes to follow
either me or his friend around, or else he just seems lost and will just sit
there. His favorite toy is a little wooden platform with three pillars of
different heights and a little top on it for them to either sit or rest their
front legs on. There are also two bells, and he likes to ring these bells. My
husband says, since he is from a breeder, he has finer manners than the pigs
we got from the pet store, and him ringing the bell, is to call for us, his butlers.
When I look at him, he reminds me of a horse, with that coloring, but with a
cat attitude. He's lazy, would rather sleep more than anything, loves
attention, and is slightly picky, he prefers carrot and hay over anything
else. It was love at first sight, and there is no doubt in my mind he will
bring much joy as time goes on! He is my little Valentine's Day boy, loving
and just all over sweet, even my husband adores him!
