|Bad Pig Stew (2010): Pinniped, Willow and Bertie|
The more I learn I learn about these silly little rodents, the more they amaze and entertain me. With umpteen years of experience, I try to share what guinea pig knowledge I can. I am a moderator on the CavyMadness page on Facebook and haunt the Guinea Lynx forum. I organize the biannual Boston Pignic and spend most of the event herding a plethora of pigs and answering a lot of questions.
I started adopting guinea pigs in 2003, when I discovered that shelters weren't limited to just cats and dogs. Since then I have adopted sows from the Brockton, Boston, Dedham, Methuen and Middletown animal shelters.
I have cared for thirteen sows since 1995. Each has had their own distinct personality and I've loved and enjoyed them all.
Pandora and Abercrombie (1995-1998)
Teddi and Eclair (1998-2003)
Athena and Victoria (2003-2006)
Willow and Pippin (2005-2012)
Pinniped and Bertie (2010-2014)
Boadicea (2014- )
Wedgwood (2016- )
I currently care for two guinea pigs:
