Guinea Pigs

I'd just like to pop up and say 'thank you' for all the lovely comments I've had recently - it is appreciated. I know I'm not always regular in my posting - hence the unheralded participation in NaBloPoMo - so it's great to know that people are still out there reading!

And just to make a change from the crafting pictures, here are a couple of 'the boys', my house guinea pigs:



This is Rowan. He's just over a year old now. He's very strong willed. He is also able to recognise certain words and will react to them - even wake up for them! The words kind of show his priorities: banana, grape, parsley, basil, day bed, duvet, hay ...




This is the old guy, Jasper. He's nearly six years old, but is ageing well :o) He is one of the most laid back guinea pigs I've had, and is an absolute love, nearly always up for a cuddle. Like Rowan, when one of us comes home, he comes out of his little house and he'd wag his tail if he had one, he loves people and is excited to see them. His favourite person in the whole world is The Hermit - the two of them often snuggle and nap together! This picture is unusual in that Jasper's eyes are open when he's curled up on The Hermit LOL!

We were watching a show about people with unusual hobbies the other night with Max. The segment we saw went over a guy who breeds and shows guinea pigs with EXTREMELY long hair. I could just see the wheels turning in Max's head - LOL!! Your boys are adorable :D
