Her name was Caramel
We got her in October 2008 at a Petsmart in Rhode Island.
weight about six to six and a half pounds
She was a red and white crested
Her feet were normal
She didn't get along with the other two piggies we had at the time and she was rather grumpy.
Caramel didn't have any known health problems however, she did die rather suddenly when she was about two and a half years old. She weighed a good six pounds when she died.
We got her when she was about two months old. She was normal sized for a young guinea pig but she seemed to grow about two times faster and larger than any of the other piggies we had.
I would post a picture but I'm not sure how to do that.

Here is a great article of the Dutch rodent society. You can throw it through google translate to read it. Beware of the roasted cuys in pics in case you are screamish!!!
Here is another great Dutch article, but beware of more roasted cuy pics. It contains pics with the difference between baby cuys and adult cuys. Also, at the bottom, a pic of the type of cuy I have seen here, which is bigger, WAY bigger.

Comparison of foot size.
