As you will read if you stick around for a few more posts, my other love (besides craft and hubby) is my guinea pig, Roderick. He is 5 months old and completely full of himself. He rules the roost (and knows it) and is gorgeous. That’s pretty much all you need to know about him. Other than his middle name (Orinoco), his favourite foods (corn husks, sage and grass) and his preferred sleeping position (on top of not inside his “cave”). I have spent more money on him in the last four months than I have on myself. He gets fed first in the morning and is the first one to get dinner. He has heat pads and blankets and brushes and toys AND a nightlight. The only thing he doesn’t have is a large enough hutch which we are slowly working on. He does, however, have a play pen for, um, playing and running about, complete with tunnels and boxes for climbing and snuggle beds for napping in. If I could buy him a castle-shaped house, you know I would. He’s worth it. Now, I wonder if he would wear a little crown…just for photographic purposes of course.
