we have two guinea pigs, both of which were sexed as male by the Humane Society. they were adopted by my neighbors who are very allergic to cats. they wanted pets for their child that would work for their family. within 3 hours, the neighbors had to leave their own house, they were having such an allergic reaction. anywhoooo, they gave them to us as they new my daughter had a guinea pig named Vivienne. (He was male, British name!) we accepted as they would all be boys and we would be 'safe' from unwanted litters. they all got along swimmingly. Vivienne had a heart attack about a month ago. Elizabeth has been heartbroken ever since. there was a funeral and everything. (this is her second pet that has left her. her cat ran away and her guinea passed away.) well, she left for school this a.m. and her brother was feeding the guinea pigs and bunny when he found these: looks like Vivienne left some blessings in his stead. are they not the cutest. i cannot wait to see Elizabeth's face. God has blessed her double for her loss. Thanksgiving, indeed!
