Peter, I never knew you were so ill.

I came to guineas only two years ago but they have enhanced my life unlike anything else. I read your books and website - you were an amazing man and you loved your guineas so much. They were lucky to live with you. I was planning to write to you but it was too late.

Sleep well, Peter, with all the guineas at the bridge. Look out for my darling Doctor Atkins at the bridge - he's the golden agouti with tiny ears and huge attitude.

Peter up in the great guinea pig run in the sky, you had a natural ability with pigs and children as I have read both your books about GOS hospital and all that you did for them, I hope where you are now you are back with your passed guinea pigs including free range fred, you wrote some brilliant care books for the benefit of us guinea pig lovers, and dedicated your latter life to the care of guinea pigs, they say God only takes the best well he got it right this time, God bless

I was first introduced to the world of guineas six years ago when the lovely 'Ninnipig' came into my life. The very first guinea pig care book I bought was Peter's Collins care guide and I thought how thorough it was, really bringing guinea pigs to life with the section on piggie noises and bonding with your piggy. Since then I have been addicted to guinea pigs and since poor Ninny went to the rainbow bridge (Peter - she's the mad but cuddly ginger and black abby who will let you know she needs the loo by nibbling your neck!) I have adopted a further eight!

I just wanted to say that, although I never met Peter, his words of wisdom and funny anecdotes, and the sheer enthusiasm for guinea pigs that has bubbled out of his books really helped me understand the piggie species much better, and for that I am eternally grateful.

It is such sad news about Peter and a shock to the 'guinea pig world. I really hope he is enjoying his reunion with the many guineas he has spoken about in his books that have also sadly passed to the bridge.

With sympathy,

Alex R. and the piggies (Betty, Boris, Babs, Bertie, Beryl, Bailey, Bree and Baby B)

Peter, I am so sorry that you are no longer with us. You have helped so many thousands of guinea pigs in your life, with your personal care and with your so generous sharing of all your knowledge. There is no-one else like you, and I shall remember you as a really kind and concerned man, who could have made a fortune with your knowledge , but instead gave it all freely, so our guinea pigs would have the benefit of your intuition, experience and love.

We shall all miss you, and I know will follow your teaching as much in the future as we all do now.

I would like to send my sympathy and love to your family, who have lost an exceptional and caring man.

Do look out for our dear Dr. Atkins at Rainbow Bridge.

Caroline

I was very sad when I heard of this man's death back in July. What a sad loss for all in the guinea pig world. Known as 'The guinea pig guru' the exellent chapter on Breeding in the book "Family Pet guides--Guinea pig" was an example of Marble's successful birth. Two went to good homes and they were Sky and Molly.

We kept Poppy who is now six months old.

Peter you did a marvellous chapter on breeding but R.I.P. The guinea pig world misses you and all the help you give.
