The girls have been wanting a guinea pig for some time and today, they talked us into buying one.  His name is Wilbur and he’s the sweetest thing.  Very quiet and snugly.  He’s a baby and will get bigger and we made the girls promise to care for him, to hold him every day and to keep him company.  It’s an exercise in responsibility.  

That said, I’m happy to have the little guy around.
