There's A New Guinea Pig In Town

I've had one Guinea Pig for many years now, an animal I adopted back when I volunteered at the Shelter. A Shelter employee named him Buddy, but over the years I realized that Buddy was a female and I began calling her Bunny. But she's been all alone and in spite of my attentions and the chance to play outside her cage once each morning, I figured she must be lonely. So I bought her a baby Guinea Pig for Christmas:

I feared the worst when I put the baby in with Bunny. But they seemed to hit it off immediately and by the next morning were, for all intents and purposes, a family:
On her first morning in my house, the new female baby (as yet unnamed) was handled a lot:

She got to explore the bed with Bunny:

She got to meet the doves:

She got to experience lots of new things:

She got to scamper around the carpeted floor:

But their quarters were less than stellar - a translucent bin from Wal-Mart. It was a bit crowded:

So the next morning I went out and bought the two Guinea Pigs a fancy home with a ramp and second floor platform:

The dogs were fascinated with the new cage and the new baby Guinea Pig:

But everyone seems happy and to get along well. So that's the end of my Guinea Pig Christmas story. They all lived happily ever after:
