When we adopted our guinea pig a few months ago, I knew I should take him in for a check up. But, I didn't get to it until I felt some flaky skin on his backside a few weeks ago. Our vet suspected he has mites. So, we were instructed to give him medicine weekly for 5 weeks, and it was suggested that we give him a bath after 2 doses. When the kids heard that, they got really excited. And then they started asking, 'Can we give him a bath yet?' the way kids ask, 'Are we there yet?' on a long car ride. For 2 weeks. Finally, over the weekend, it was time. The guinea pig and I, and four excited and wiggly children, gathered in the bathroom for the event. And while I can't say that the guinea pig seemed to enjoy it necessarily, he didn't seem too put out either. And neither were we. We thought it was the cutest thing.
Getting the guinea pig was her idea. Love that girl.
Get in on the action!
