    Back on the forum....

    Hello again! Hope this finds everybody A okay, with all pets happy and healthy. For those who don't know me, I'm Thumper. Yes like the character in Bambi . I'll be 29 next month, and I'm getting the best gift ever!

    I have two guinea pigs, Earnest and George. George is getting to be a senior, but Earnest is still young. All of them I've ever had have been rescues, aside from one. I recently was told (march) that I am no longer able to work, so my time is divide between them, my parents, and my dog(s). My father had a stroke, he's in rehab again. My mother is on oxygen all the time, which limits what she can do and where she can go. Which is another reason I cannot work.

    Anyways, I had gotten a lab mix, but he was simply too much for the apartment. And Mom couldn't deal with it, so I found him a wonderful home with a fenced yard. And I went into search mode, major. I found three female piggies, but with just the two males.... well lets just say I had to think long and hard about it, and decided against them. I do have a poodle named Sugars as well, it takes awhile to groom her, but only because she doesn't do well at over 15-20 minutes.

    And here's the best part.... I'm getting a five year old poodle mix named Lucy!!!!!!!! She seems just perfect for us, and I can't wait to meet her. it's like getting a new baby . Anyways, I wanted to update you guys, and say hi and hope all is well in the land of guinea pig care!!!

    Re: Back again....

    Nice to see you! So sorry about all the family issues, but it sounds as though you're coping well.

    I think you did the right thing by not taking the three females, especially since you live in an apartment and probably don't have excess room. Another large piggy cage would have been too much.........for everyone.

    Congratulation on the new "kid". I hope that she works out well with Sugars.
