Names At Last!

Well, it took some doing but we finally have names for our new, furry little friends.  Maybe it's because Dr. Seuss' birthday is coming soon or maybe it's because commercials for The Lorax have been all over the television...I'm not really sure.  But their names are officially Daisy (after Daisy-Head Maisy) and Cindy Lou (yup, that adorable little girl from The Grinch).  Only, the tiny guinea pig is Daisy and the chunka munka is Cindy Lou.  That feels a little backwards to me but it is what it is.  We all love them both!  

Daisy - 2 months old

Cindy Lou - 3 months old


  1. They are adorable and so are their names! Aren't pigs fun?

  2. I love them ! Do they live at school all the time or are you taking them home?? I really need to look into a class vpet. One time we caught a ladybug- we were going to keep her- but she flew away:)
    That Cindy-Lou is a chunky one:)

  4. Yes, Erika, piggies are a ton of fun! In fact, I'm loving it so much that my students have only seen pictures of them so far. Ha! I figured I would get them used to being touched and held and then bring them to school after winter vacation...which started today. Yay!

    Miss Squirrel, If you want a class pet, you should check out Pets in the Classroom. It's a super easy grant that covers most of the initial cost for one piggy. Once the piggies go to school, they will come home on weekends and vacations. It's been almost two weeks and guinea pigs are super easy to care for and so, so lovable!
