Well, I have finally found the perfect little piggies for my classroom!  They are so adorable...I already LOVE them!  I had no idea it would be so difficult to get two female guinea pigs.  They had to be female because I was told that the males get territorial and will fight.  So it was either one male or two females.  What to do?  Well, given the fact that I am never satisfied with just one of anything (like when I find a great pair of jeans -  I have to buy 2 or 3 pairs!) so I decided on two females.  My daughter and I drove around to all of the local Petco stores last Saturday and every store only had one female.  The closest store said they were getting 8 females in on Wednesday so I drove straight there after my staff meeting and guess what?  Only ONE left!  I couldn't believe it.  So I spent my entire prep period yesterday calling Petco stores that weren't so local.  Finally, one said they had 5 females.  I practically sped there after work and found these two little cuties.  Actually, one of them is a chunka munka...but oh so cute!  I don't have names for them yet.  We will be doing that in school today.  My only rules with the kids were that the names had to be book characters and they had to make sense (to me, of course).  So I'll be back when the piggies have been named to do a proper introduction.  In the meantime, I wanted you all to see my new babies.  :)


  1. Cute! I can't wait for the names!

  2. They are gorgeous! You cracked me up about the jeans--I am the same way!

  3. I had guinea pigs right before I started teaching. I got Lilly then I bought Layla a couple months later. The territorial thing is true about males. I found out that Lilly was really a Willy. I had to take Layla back to the store and get a male who I named Georgee. It took Willy awhile to get used to him. I just had to make sure I introduced them in a neutral place. Sheesh! But they were worth it. Loved my pigs!!
