I have a Guinea pig named Rocky and he's very chatty. he always squeals when I get home or come inside(even if I have only been gone for a few seconds). he squeals ever time I open the fridge because he wants a carrot (he is never dissapointed). I love Rocky very much and even when he is gone I will still have a Guinea pig in my life.

I have two sweet little boys and I kept them together until I noticed they started fighting. I had to get a seperate cage for them and had to split them. I think they are starting to get along again though. Yes, they are sweeties, but people just dump them at shelters and even on the roads, hoping they'd survive. I think that if you're going to breed, have homes ready for them.

I used to have 5 guinea pigs. i think they are one of the best pets to have! i started out with one, calie. well we wanted to get a companion for her so we got boofer. we didnt know it but boofer was pregnant and she had 3 babies. i kept one of them, the male ozzy. he was so cute and friendly. well calie had past away so my mom got me another one who was an old guinea pig named angel. she just past away recently and i have boofer and ozzy still. they are both so loveable and cute they look almost the same. they are both black and brown. i think guinea pigs are one of the best pets anyone could ever have. .:*~SaMmY~*:.

Guinea Pigs are the best pets to keep because you don't need to exercise them every day by taking them for walks and you don't need to bath them very often, maybe just once a year. I have a guinea Pig and she is 6yrs old. she is so cute and cuddly.

I own a Guinea pig and his name is Rodney he is the greatest. He is very fun to play with and is very loyal to me. I love him so much and if anything ever happened to him I would be very sad.

I must warn all guinea pig owners to re-sex each guinea pig, despite what has been said by your pet store. I and many others could speak from experience when saying that not every pet store is always correct in this aspect!

I plan to get a guinea pig this fall for 4-h showing. I had a guinea pig a couple years ago, but I think she got a virus. I only had her for about two months before she died. She was a Crested and her name was Princess, for the spot on her head. I really liked her and I had a lot of fun taking care of her. My dad built a cage out of wood and chicken wire and I kept her in my room. I highly recommend guinea pigs for any one interested in showing small animals.

I adore Guinea Pigs. I have 1 and he's soooo cute. He is well behaved and is very affectionate, I wouldn't trade him for the world!! Piggies are really cute and make great pets and are quite easy to handle!!
