Guinea The Pig

We got a new pet this week and she's so sweet! It's kind of wierd to think that we have a little rodent in our house, but I had a feeling we would at some point, so why not now?! :-)
Carson's been wanting a guinea pig for some time, a friend of his has one and their family said they are pretty easy pets. So we went to PetsMart last week and after holding one, Carson fell in love with this particular one that has a funny cowlick on top of it's head. It's really cute and the coloring is really pretty. White with a nice gray/brownish color. Both kids have had a really fun time playing with her, even Livi, who I thought would be more timid about it, has loved her. Gracie, the dog, doesn't seem to really care much. The first 2 days she'd go up to Guinea's (yeah, pretty original, eh?) cage and sniff and bark, but now she doesn't seem to care. So, now we'll have more opportunities to teach a little responsibility around here. Carson is our animal lover, it's been so cute to see him get giddy happy with her crawling all over him.

OK, that video is so cute! And so is Guinea. How fun. I'm glad it's going so well!
Oh, and I think Carson is going to be a ventriloquist when he grows up... :)

That video is priceless!

I don't think we can come visit now. Moose loved the video so much that if he actually gets to meet Guinea I'm not sure how we'll avoid owning our own.:)
