This is Scooby:
Yes, she's cute. And rather, um, rotund. She eats a lot. And funny thing..did you know guinea pigs purr when you hold them? Well, they do. It's somewhat adorable. As is the squeaking noise she makes when you "rustle" a plastic bag. She thinks it's food and well, as you can see from the photo...this girl likes her food.
Here are the girls with Scooby:
Speaking of food. The pig likes apples. A lot. And alfalfa hay ... which I think I might be allergic to. I had a mild sneezing attack this afternoon when some of the hay was in her cage. And then tonight, when I actually opened the bag and grabbed a big handful for her...well, it wasn't pretty. Sneezing, coughing, hacking, wheezing.
Hell, I'm still wheezing like a two-pack-a-day smoker here. And it's been almost an hour since I touched the hay.
It could be a very long weekend.
