So it's my time to have a topic here! Because it has to be like a story, this mesage will be long (I will resume my piggies life). Hope you will enjoy it :D

Let's start with the beginig. My first Guinea pig was Alvin. He was bought from a petshop.
Image

Before I found out about Gemon.ro (a really nice website and forum from romania) he was alone in a small cake. But one day, a little friend arrived for him: Corb (=raven)
He was small, with short hair and a lot of vortices in his fur.
Image

Then he grew and he became a handsome boy.
Image

An year later, I was watching photos with guinea pig from the best caviary here, INKA. I wanted a boy from that caviary... And I got one. Quizi-Quiz-Qui de INKA
He is a black-tan coronet guinea pig.
He had two brothers, they were black and white, but I picked him.
Image

First day home
Image

When he was 5 months old, Corb and him started to beat Alvin, si I had to separe him in a tiny cake. After a couple of months, he was in their first cage.
Image

A year later, in the winter, I found Corb in the morning with a white tissue on his eye. I thought he scraped himself with a hay thread, but he was not OK after two days with the treatment that I was giving to him years ago, too.
So I went to the vet and she told us that his eye was pierced and it couldn't be saved. He punctured his eye with something, like a thick hay thread. So, now, he doesn't have an eye anymore, but he's fine with this.

After a half an year, a really beautiful guinea pig appeard at INKA caviary. And surprise, surprise, it was a boy! So I asked my parents if I could buy it for my beloved Alvin, who was alone and, more surprising, they said yes!
So I reserved him.

But, sadly, a few days before I could take the piggy, Alvin died.
He was OK in the night, and in the morning he couldn't breath normaly. We tok him in the house, to stay with us (they have a spare room). He was eating, but he died before we could go to the vet. It was so fast, and I'm still crying when I'm thinking about this...

You made me love guinea pigs, filled my life with happiness. Because of you I'm now obsessed with these beautiful creatures. I love you and I will always love you, my precious!

Even with the pain of lossing Alvin in my heart, I couldn't leave the little piggy at the caviary. He was paid and waiting for me. I couldn't put him with my veterans eighter.

He was one year old, so I decided to take him with my little baby.

But, wait, I forgot to show you my baby. And that's because you all know him! He's in the guinea lynx calendar, too!

Cute piggies! The one eating the pepper is a good candidate for the stink-eye thread!

Oh yea definately show the Halloween pictures!

I'm so jealous of Choco's hair! It's beautiful! My Bizonte has the same type of hair but long hair with the Venezuelan sun is torture... I cut him to an inch or so every two weeks :(

Such precious little guineas! I love long-haired guinea pigs. I wish I could find some at the humane society here, but they seldom have them.

Than you, serelixyue and pigwidgeon!

@serelixyue - I loved your treads, I read all of them. I was so sad that you had to give the piggies away :(

Great pictures - but I have very slow internet and it took forever to load!!!

I suggest a max of, say, 20 photos per page (there are almost 60 on this page).

It is agony trying to load so many pictures, despite the rewards. Believe me.

It is not about the number of pictures.

If you post a picture then submit the post. Make a new post and post the next picture. Maybe put two pictures in one post, but keep making a new post for each picture. That way, we can see a picture on every page in the thread.

It will work out great if you put two pictures in each reply, but submit and then reply with two more pictures. Do you know what I mean?

Your pictures are awesome! :)

Yes, I understood Jamie. I'm just used not to post repetatively from the other forum... But there are 20 posts on one page, so one more post and I will have a new page :D

Thank you :)

And I will try to post smaller pictures, too. I size them at 1200 x 800 pixels, and the Photobucket is usually uploading them smaller, but I see they are not smaller. I have to check the upload setings!
