Mr. Surprise
 
so my daughter as I've said before, rescues guinea pigs, normally she rehomes them but once in awhile she keeps them, she lost two this year (old age) and only had one old male, almost 8 yrs which is very very old for a guinea pig, so august 12th she gets a call from a woman getting rid of a 5 month old and would she take it and find it a home or she was taking it to the bush and releasing it, Angie (daughter) took it, her son named it baby...she's a cutie, yesterday we go over and her bf says to her "when were you going to tell me?" we were stumped...he pointed at the cage, we went to look in at her and lifted up her "igloo" and low and behold, a two day old baby *LOL* no one knew she was pregnant!! she must have been about 2 weeks when they got her and the owner only had her a week so it had to have happened at the pet store where she was purchased. my god its a sweetie, so being the daughter is preggers and the baby as far as we can tell is a male it needs its own cage in 3 weeks, the male is too old to have a baby put in with him and I don't want daughter to take on more cage cleaning so its possible "baby's baby" will be coming to stay at grama's...I'm thinking of the name PB for peanut butter*L* what do you guys think???

[B]3 days old (we think)[/B]

I didn't know they could have such long hair! What a cutie baby.

Melinda October 3rd, 2011 08:15 AM

oh Marty, you should see Spike, her old male, we have to keep trimming his hair because he gets all tangled up in it *L*

it won't get dark Breeze, it will pretty well stay the color it is, but we think he/she will have long hair because its very soft right now, the long haired are softer than the shorter hair, but again, it all depends who the father is. hey ween themselves around 2 weeks old and the males by 3-5 weeks old can breed with their moms or siblings, so it will have to be taken away then. it already eats solid foods.

So people think they can release into the bush....how sad.:(

Melinda October 3rd, 2011 10:24 AM

she rescued 3 like that marty, two we were told about and the third was sighted in a field down town and we went searching and found it. I myself have chased and caught domestic rabbits and hamsters!! in my back yard, I'm next to an empty field/bush

hazelrunpack October 3rd, 2011 01:00 PM

omd, I've never seen a baby one!! It's adorable! Mom is gorgeous, too! :lovestruck: I'm so glad your daughter was there to be her :angel:! Peanut Butter suits him... Or, since the back of his ears are black and if he gets as hairy as mom, call him Dirty (cuz his ears look dirty) Hairy. :o I know, I know...I need more coffee... :D

Melinda October 3rd, 2011 01:33 PM

well hell *LOL* I love the name Dirty Hairy *LOL* man that would suit him to a T *L*

hazelrunpack October 3rd, 2011 01:38 PM

Oh wow! You mean I picked a winner? :eek: Without coffee??!! :eek: :laughing: :highfive:

Aw, I love the way piggies are born ready for action. Your Mom is a Peruvian and that is my favourite breed. The first pig that I owned ( in the old days ) was a Peruvian that my Mom had got from a pet shop and that pig was also knocked up. She gave me FOUR babies, what a commotion that was. Luckily my Dad made me a condo hutch.
Best wishes with the new "grand piggie". :)
