Livestock

The Guinea  Pigs are the favorites in the livestock. Some times the children wants me to hold one or tow of this small creatures, that is one of the fewest things that i don't do for them.I had never held a guinea pig.

  1. I think that Guinea Pigs are only active at night? No wonder children like them and keep waking them up.

  3. I can't blame you; I also don't like to hold small animals with sharp teeth.

  6. I'm certain your grandchildren tease you about it. :)
    This reminds me Yael, of when my son was about 8 years old and I bought him a Siberian hamster from a pet shop. I specifically asked for a male because, when I saw that males and females were all in a single cage, I was certain if I'd chosen a female she would already have been pregnant. We proudly brought home a male and my son named him Nixie. Ten days later Nixie had a litter of 6 babies!

    3. I did read your comment Yael, and I'm sorry you deleted it. I don't look at mistakes because I make plenty myself! I always understand very well what you write here and in your comments on other blogs. The good thing Yael, is that we are able to comunicate, no matter, whether in correct grammar or not...and now I know there are plenty mistakes in this long comment! :) xx

  7. A pet I would never let in the door, even to this second generation that longs for a Guinea Pig.

  8. I've never understood the advantage (or point) of rodents as pets. If you're going to go to all the trouble of cage cleaning why not just get the kid a cat.

  9. Cat is not enough sometimes, they have a cat and a dog.

  10. Guinea pigs and other small rodents are a bit uncanny. Cute from a distance, though.

  11. I can imagine why the children love to hold them - the fur, their tininess - but I would fear a bit their teeth...

  12. They make funny little noises as I remember

  13. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to your home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.

  17. We had white rats, guinea pigs, and hamsters among other pets while my kids were little. On the other end of the scale we had horses. Now, with just the wife and I here, we have ferrets, cats, dogs and chickens. That's enough!
