    New Family Member!

    I took my two boys Rocky and Capone to the local rescue to do a bit of boar dating today. They were separated on January 14th. Unfortunately Rocky did not find a suitable match, he was too dominant for any of the males at the shelter. My plan next is to get Rocky neutered and find a nice sow...

    scared guinea pig!

    Hello! One of my abbyruvian guinea pigs is really scared. Her companion who is slightly older than her allows me to hold her, carry her around and play with her. However, when I try to do that with her, she hisses and runs away then cowers in the corner. She does not respond to any bribery like...
