new babies

  1. Well i went and did it....as if a 1 year old pup wasn't enough...my youngest daughter and I just got guinea pigs!! We each got a male and they are about 5 to 6 weeks old. We named them peanut and snoopy. I just wanted to share that with my "other family".

    Greer, great names for them!

    I know how you feel, as if my rascal Tommy (puppy in the avatar) wasn't enough to keep me busy, my bf came home today as the proud new Papa of a kitten. He named him Kitty...I know, how original!.

    Here's a pick of the new devil...he looks like a Halloween Kitty...

    We used to have a guinea pig named Snoopy cause she used to climb up and sleep on her house. She died 18 mo ago. we since got another who we named Patches. They are nice little pets; my kids love them.

    I'll add pics later today.....my pup thinks these are some active stuffed animals. She keeps sitting by the cage whining and whimpering to play with them!

    How sweet!

    We had hamsters when I was a kid - they were great pets.

    My daughter had 2 guinea pigs, they were adorable but she did not keep up with the cleaning and they stunk, I gave her one chance too many then gave the little piggies away, that was 3 years ago and she hasn't gotten over it yet. They are cute but the caging must be cleaned daily or else they reek.
