G Is For Giggle

The guinea pigs make me giggle, sometimes. Herbie, the baby, gets so excited when someone comes into the room. He starts squeaking to say “Hi”.
Taylor makes me laugh when she runs around the room. Her sister, Speckles makes me laugh when she walks on my feet. Nibbles walks on my feet, too.
Herbie and Theo play with each other. I think Herbie bugs Theo sometimes.
When the babies were little I put Nibbles in their cage, trying to figure out if his behavior could tell me what sex they were. They were running up to him and running away from him. One of the babies ran inside a hidey house, just the size for a baby guinea pig. Nibbles tried to go in and got his head stuck. I could not stop laughing. He finally pulled his head free and gave me a hurt look like, “Hey, that’s not funny.”. It was.
One day, I introduced the babies to their father on the stairs, an unfamiliar territory, so he would not be territorial with them. Two of the three babies were following him. The other one was by me, while i was filming. Sometimes he chased them, sometimes they chased him. They were so much faster than him, they would be gone by the time he turned around. They ended up backing him into a corner. By the way, I give myself permission to post this video from my youtube channel on this site
Here’s what happened:

Both were OK.  You hear one baby cry out, I think because Nibbles pushed her against the wall.  I checked them both after I filmed it.  They were fine.  You hear me say smething at the end because I was afraid they were hurt, but since they weren’t, it’s funny to me now.  Nibbles kept trying to sniff their rear ends, so that is what he is doing in the video.  He knew they were female.  He could have told me then.  🙂

Nibbles And Layla Come Home

Hey, y’all! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Now it’s time to get ready for Christmas. Woo hoo!
I’ve had this idea in my head for an ongoing story and I keep getting ideas about our guinea pigs, so I thought I would write them down. You’ll also notice I have a new category for these stories so you can find them easily. I was sort of inspired by Jane’s (one of my subscribers) stories about Pen and Paper. If you haven’t read them, you should, if you want to find out what that pen and piece of paper say when you’re not around. So here it is, the first story from Ongoing Piggies. Tell me what you think.

Father: (whispering to the mother) Come here. I want to show you the guinea pigs I got for Anna for Christmas. It’s two girls, about three months old.

Mother: This ought to be different than the mice. I don’t think I’ve seen a guinea pig up close.

Nibbles: Who’s that?

Layla: I don’t know. Maybe it’s someone else in the family.

(Father opens the box and mother peeks in.)

Layla: Oh good, it’s a girl!

Mother: Oh, they’re so cute! (Reaches down and pets them.)

Nibbles: How big is this family?

Layla: We’ve only seen one person, so far. We haven’t seen a mom. She must be the mom.

Mother: They’re so soft! The black one’s fur is shiny and silky.

Nibbles: (smiles) She’s pretty, just like the little girl.

Father: Do you think Anna will like them?

Mother: Oh, yeah. They’re so cute and they seem really sweet.

Father: Do you want to hold one?

Mother: Um, I guess.

Father: (picks up Nibbles and puts in her arms)

Nibbles: I’ll have her wrapped around my finger in no time.

Layla: (rolls her eyes) You and your charm.

Nibbles: (grins at her) It works on you, doesn’t it?

Mother: (gives Nibbles back to the father, who returns to the box). Ooh, I can’t wait for Anna to see them!

Layla: Just wait ’till they find out you’re not a girl.
