New Addition to the family

Autumn joined our family yesterday.  She's a guinea pig for those who don't know rodents.  She is very brave for a guinea pig and didn't mind sharing her carrot with Chester who was very interested in this newest squeak toy.


  1. I don't do rodents but she is cute to look at as long as it's you owning her!
    What's her name?

  2. Oh NO!!!!! (Judy these are NOT rodents! They are amazing wee characters with fantastic personalities!)
    We LOVE penny kids! So freaking much! Yipee for Autumn!!!
    (Dan's younger sister's daughter coined the phrase "penny kids" because she couldn't remember Guinea Pig, we've used it for decades.)

  3. Julie
    Penny Kids are awesome.
    We had one a few years back. His name was Squee and he was not shy about squeeing his name at the top of his considerable lungs. Everytime the fridge opened he let us know that there was a starving pig in need of a carrot.

    Autumn is her name. I will enjoy her for the both of us. You wouldn't think a Pig would be social they seem so skittish, but once they are comfortable they are awesome and not afraid to voice their opinions.

  4. What a cutie!! I love aminules! Especially the furry kind.

  5. Cute!

    (Oh and the complete geek in me would like to add that guinea pigs are officially listed as rodents, but scientists are working on reclassifying them to their own family. Go pigs!)
