A Piggy Named “Toby”

December 13, 2014 was a very sad day for our family since our pet guinea pig, Squeaker, passed away.  It was especially hard for my daughter, Amber, who had been considering the piggy as one of her best friends.  Here is the post I wrote around a year ago telling a story between Amber and Squeaker.

Amber spent hours crying and going through a pile of pictures including Squeaker.  After we buried Squeaker in the pet cemetery at our backyard, we started looking for another guinea pig so that Amber could get out from sadness as soon as possible.

We found this lovely three month old piggy on New Year’s day, with who Amber bonded almost immediately.  She named him as “Toby”, and couldn’t stop playing with him from the time he was brought to our  home.

Since then Amber becomes as happy as the time with Squeaker, due to her New friend!

  1. I enjoyed reading your post. My son had a pet guinea pig named Speedy. One day he passed away and it was hard for all of us. I can still hear his little whistles. Your pictures are wonderful. I am now following your blog.
    I am glad your daughter has her new guinea pig Toby… 🙂
