    The one I marked with a blue dot. He was super sweet when we met him yesterday. I can't get him off my mind.

    We're going back to visit him for a while to make sure his personality is good. If it is, we've got a new peeper!

    Adorable things!
    I always liked them for several reasons, but I only keep hermit crabs.

    He's really nice :) I used to keep a few guineas, I've just got one at the minute. I would have more but he doesn't get along with other guineas.:rolleyes: Do you have a group already that you'll be adding him to or will he be alone?

    Agreed!


    Hermit crabs are cool! I'd love to have some again one day when I have the space to give them a big tank.

    We have one male Guinea pig now named S'mores. If they get along, they'll be buddies and live together. If not, he'll stay in my room, S'mores will stay in the play room and I'll bring them out to talk to each other through the bars.


    He was so soft and cuddly. I hope he's like that again when we visit today! I love the cuddly ones. :)

    I am so jealous! Just kidding, what a cutie! I love guinea pigs, they are so cute and full of personality! I can't have one now as my dog has this thing for trying to kill small animals so I would never take the chance. My family had one years ago and just loved her like crazy. She used to whistle and chirp and make all kinds of crazy cute sounds. They are great pets!

    They are adorable. It was between this Guinea pig or more rats and I have a feeling about this one...I think I need more time to grieve my girls before I get more, anyway. I'd compare too much. I miss them. :(

    This is our current peeper S'mores -

    What adorable pictures! Really sorry for your loss! I'm sure you will know when the time is right, it is wise to give yourself the necessary time before bringing a new critter into your home & heart. A family friend's dog passed away last year, he missed her so much he adopted too soon and ended up doing just what you mentioned, comparing the new dog to the one he lost and ended up returning her to the shelter. It was just too painful for him. Fortunately another family had been wanting to adopt the dog he returned so worked out ok but better to hold off like you said. When you are ready I hope you post pictures and stuff, good luck!

    Definitely will when I do feel like I can get rats again.
    We're about to leave to go visit Capybara (what I mentally named the brown guy yesterday). Hopefully he's as sweet today as he was yesterday. :)

    More pictures of S'mores because he's adorable:

    I'm sure they had great lives with you!

    Lol, I keep everything from pets. Only thing I need for this guinea pig is a food bowl.

    I hope so too!

    Oh, and I finally got a new comforter for my bed! So happy! I've had the same comforter since we moved into this house (4 years ago I think) and it was super kiddy. Can't wait have the new one on my bed! image.jpg
