Well when I took Dennis to see Rachel (Vet) today she did mention that I was doing a lot more than a lot of guinea pig owners would! They are my pets and when I took them on I also took on the responsibility of looking after them properly. You would do it for a cat or a dog so why not a guinea pig? It annoys me how guinea pigs are seen as "disposable". They aren't. They are lovely pets with lovely personalities who deserve to be treated with respect and love.

Guinea pigs lives are no less important as any other pet to me. If you keep a pet you do your utter best no matter if it’s a goldfish or a Great Dane 👍
I get sick to the back teeth with some people saying “no! not back up to Northampton again, there must be a vet down here who can do it” and they are the kind ones 😞

Just realised I didn't finish of this thread. For those of you who were following this thread and wondered what had happened to my Little Cutey Pie ......

On November 27th I found my Dennis in his forever sleep. He fought a nasty URI valliantly for 3 months but his little body couldn't take it any more and he stopped fighting and toddled off to The Rainbow Bridge.

Dennis was born as the result of a shop pregnancy on 5 May 2016 along with Meg and Christian. He was always the smallest of the three but that didn't stop him from being gorgeous or cheeky. As soon as he met Betsy he was in love! Betsy and Dennis were made for each other and when I had to split the herd a couple of years ago it was obvious that they would be together.

Dennis was the Founder Member and Self Appointed Chairpig of the very successful Stripey Nose Club and met lots of new friends in the Club Bar to squeak over the days happenings.

Dennis was my little Cutey Pie and I will miss his little face and the fact that I could do anything with him and he was never phased. He was such a gentle soul and he had such a gentle pigsonality too.

I buried him after Betsy had had a chance to understand what has happened to the love of her life and say her goodbyes. I put Velvet and her plant in the garden a few weeks ago and I put Dennis with his Mum. I hope Dennis is having fun at The Rainbow Bridge I miss him so much.
