Guinea Pigs and Other Small Critters

When my daughter was in high school, she took a zoology class. Her teacher took in more than 100 animals, from rodents to reptiles. Little by little, he needed to downscale his collection, and I think my daughter would have taken every one of them home if she could have!  View Blog>>

Guinea Pigs and Dogs: Friends or Foes

I feel so fortunate to share my life with three wonderful dogs.  They are all Boston Terriers, and two of them are rescues from Texas (I live in New York).  They get along beautifully with my cats, even though Tiggerbella has backed Rudy into a corner and kept him captive a number of times!  View Blog>>

It was one of the most heart-wrenching finds of my life when I woke up to total silence one cool November morning. Usually my guinea pigs, Annie and Abbie, would be wheeking with excitement the minute they heard me rise, but this day was eerily different. I knew something was wrong but never expected what I saw.

Guinea Pigs And Their People

I have never met a guinea pig I didn’t simply melt over. No matter what their color, age or personality, I find them absolutely precious little critters. Perhaps it’s their round bodies, expressive eyes or mushy lips that makes them so endearing. View Blog>>
