If it were my choice, I would have plenty of pets: a dog, chickens, a pig, a goat, a sheep, perhaps a little wallaby but as this is very unlikely to happened, I am going to have to settle for the two guinea pigs that have come to stay for a couple of weeks.
They are adorable and incredibly popular with Charlie, who woke me up early asking if he could get them out of their hutch.
His little face says it all and he has been happily feeding them the contents of our fridge throughout the day.
He even got in the cage with them to play and waited very patiently for them to come out.
He did of course allow them to escape but they are safely back in their cage again until tomorrow morning.
