My GrandPig, Yaddle

My oldest son has always loved guinea pigs, and once settled into his own place as an adult, he went out and got one. Within days he knew it needed a buddy to live with so went back to the pet store and purchased one of the two remaining pigs which he felt were brothers to the original one. A week or so later, the last brother was still at the pet store, and Michael, being the tender-hearted guy that he's been since he was a kid, couldn't leave him there alone anymore, so brought him home as well. That pig is this one; Yaddle (named after some obscure character in a Star Wars book, I believe.) Yaddle has an usual shape to his nose..."more rat than guinea pig" Michale says. But it's a good nose for kissing, something I did a lot of after the poor creature put up with me constantly repositioning him after he'd try and sneak under the hosta for cover.
Michael's four guinea pigs have been staying with me while he was on work assignment in Spain since August. He barely made it back to the States before borders were closed because of COVID. But he's not been able to come and get them until now. In a few days my "grandpigs" will be going home once again, something I'm sure they'll be happy about.

I babysat my son's guinea pig for a year and fell in love with the fat body and short legs.

I'm surprised that he didn't run away when he was in the garden! He's cute.
