This is Balou, he is a very cool guinea pig. Balou is special, because he is sweet. He is six years old and was a gift to my first communion. He lives in a cage in our living room, here in Germany. Balou shares the cage with the guinea pig that is my sister's, which is named Peaches.
He does know one trick, Balou stands up on just his hind legs when he wants to get a goody. It's not easy to get him out of the cage, especially when I want to clean it, because Balou is too fast for me. When we set up races, Balou runs faster than Peaches. Balou is the best guineapig in the world.
