Interesting Guinea Pig Sites

We "adopted" Spookie on April 5, 1996. She weighed in at a hefty 7 1/2 ounces and our vet estimated that she was about 1 month old.
Spookie is a very active girl (contrary to what this picture might lead you to believe). She runs laps around her room over and over again, and does some pretty spectacular popcorn jumps. Sometimes she jumps straight up and when she lands she's facing the opposite direction. My favorite is when she jumps straight up and shakes her head and body while she is in the air. She gets most "jumpy" around meal time. She must be either very excited or trying to work up her appetite for that big carrot.
Jumping and whistling for your hay, pellets, and veggies can sure wear you out. Here, Spookie is resting up after eating.
Spookie is here, resting AGAIN. This time in front of a pile of hay.
