I have always dreaded the day I would have to write one of these and now the time has come.

This evening my second oldest guinea pig, Baby Boo, passed away with his young buddy Cinnamon right by his side. His cage mate for 5 years, Atticus, was too busy eating to give a last snuggle.

I had owned him for 5 years last week. He came into the pet store I was working at as a sick baby pig who I took home and nursed back to health. Since he was light orange and black and it was almost Halloween I called him Boo and because he was so little I named him Baby Boo.

Last night they were all running around in the cage wheeking, in the morning they were all sitting in the hay, and this afternoon when I went to feed them their pellets he was laying on his side, twitching and breathing slowly. I spent a lot of the afternoon by the cage and shortly after my husband said his good-byes to him he took his last breaths and passed.

RIP Baby Boo. I'm sure you and Ty are snuggling together up there.
(Ty is my young cat that passed last year and he loved watching and playing with the guinea pigs)

Attached is last year's Halloween photo.

My husband and I buried Baby Boo on my Dad's property this afternoon right next to Ty. It's hard looking in the cage and only seeing 2 guinea pigs looking back at me instead of 3. I will miss his "pellet dance", when ever I opened the cage to place the bowl inside he would spin in a circle wheeking, often right where I was going to place the bowl so I would have to gently nudge him out of the way. He was a funny little guy and looked like a mop running around. I'm really gonna miss my husband asking if I'm holding him the right way because he couldn't tell his head from his back end since he had so much hair.

The photo outside is from this spring, the cat is Ty eating grass with the guinea pigs, and the others are a couple of my faves of Baby Boo.

My deepest condolences to you for the loss of your sweet baby Boo. He was such a sweet-looking little bed-head piggie. I don't think I have seen that coloring before on a Peruvian. May he popcorn in peace and snuggle with Ty when he's ready to rest.
