MY Very First Guinea Pig, MR Brown And Thumper The Rabbit..Looked Over By Spencer My German Shepherd Dog. He adored them. I got these from a neighbor she bought the Rabbit and piggie from pets at home
My Love affair with Guinea Pigs Started a few years ago when a neighbor asked if I wanted a guinea pig and rabbit,
They had got got their child a rabbit and A piggie, And as children do, he had got fed up with them so I took them in. Thank you Jacky I would never have known what lovely animals they were
The Rabbit was a lop, and a boy (BUCK) he was missing being with a girl Rabbit (DOE) so was bad tempered. So I re-homed Him
The piggie (called Mr Brown) Once the rabbit had gone was lonely, So I got another to go with him and it was a she (sow). her name was MB
I made many mistakes then, placing what would have been a 8 week old sow with a boar, her wouldn't have left her alone . poor little love use to cower in he hutch. she wouldn't come out.
Once I realized, I changed how things were.
A lot of things about looking after and caring for the welfare of guinea pigs is made by trial and error.
I just want to make folk aware of my mistakes so you don't make them.
I'm ashamed of the mistakes I made because it caused suffering albeit for a short time to a lovely little girl. MB.
She gave birth to 4 babies TJ ,Frankie and two that a neighbor (David) took .
and I re homed Mr Brown as I didn't want any more and didnt have enough cages .
