Our littlest guinea pig, Smokey, passed away Sunday night. He hadn't been feeling well for about a week and he was scheduled to have surgery Monday to remove a growth that was growing on his butt. Smokey was our brave guinea pig that was always jumping off the couch, or biting the dogs in the face. If you came home without feeding them their carrots he was always the one that was standing up trying to get your attention. We will truly miss him a lot but we are so glad that he isn't suffering anymore. To us our animals are like our children and it was really hard for us to let him go. Our other guinea pig, Patches, seems to be doing well. He runs around his cage looking for Smokey sometimes. Goodbye Smokey, we loved you and will miss you tons!
