Then God said,"Let there be Guinea Pigs... and it was so."

"Look!! Look!! I can swim! I'm so excited...maybe I'll go for the Guinea Pig Super Star Olympics...maybe I'll get a lead role in the next Madagascar movie...maybe...OOPS! Sorry about that..a little too much excitement and look what happens..a little embarrassing."

Well....not really. But He didn't say 'dogs' either! I do know that guinea pigs were included in that 6th day of creation and I for one am very thankful!!
Not all of us can have dogs and cats. I rent and they are not allowed. But I AM allowed to have guinea pigs, so I have three...Thea, CG, and TOOEY! Tooey is my fave. (you can read about how he came to us here: )
There really are no limits to the fun you can have with these little fellows. Each is endowed with a very unique personality and abilities and there is no end to the joy they bring.

From playing peek a boo

to having a bath

and even slaying dragons

Tooey has rooted his way deep into my heart to which I can echo the words from James 1:17: "Every good thing bestowed and every perfect gift is from above; coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. "

To your right you can see my fellow lovers of guinea pigs! Or at least they think they're cute enough to have in their shops. Please visit them. You may find some little furry friend you like in one form or another!
