Since we began keeping the class pet during second grade Charli Beth begged and pleaded for a guiena pig. She even took the time to write out and make a persuasive video about how it would make our family, "happier."
Curtis had a straight forward no for the longest time. Then I had a sweet friend with one that her daughter was having terrible allergies with.
So he gave in.
The kids are now the proud owners of Gus. He's far, so cute and gets completely crazy at night while playing. He loves to nibble and eat hay but you can pretty much tell that from the size of his big ole belly.
We have had him for a little over a month and the kids love him just the same. Bryar gets so excited to see him but of course he does not get the responsibility of holdin him... Just yet.
