On a weekend that for the whole household was dominated by sore throats, headaches and general miserable-ness thanks to winter coughs and colds, there was a little bright spark – the arrival of two new pets – Poppy and Daisy the baby Guinea Pigs.
Izzy’s beloved Guinea Pig ‘Charlie’ (above), passed away, aged 3, while we were away on holidays last month. He died only a few hours before we returned home in fact. Not the happiest homecoming! Izzy had had Charlie since she was 3, so he was quite an important part of her life.
On Saturday we brought home a pair of females, that way they have company while Izzy is at school (or on holidays!).
Poppy on the left is a Texel cross with the cutest coat, and Daisy is a Merino who looks a bit straggly at the moment. Apparently when her hair grows it will be curly and look like a sheep. Stay tuned to see that, I’m quite intrigued after doing some research on google
Happy Monday to you!
