So as many of you know, it's been a bit of a difficult time petwise in the Icarus household. My beloved guinea pigs Tater Tot (aged 5 or 6) and Marzipan (who was only almost 3) passed away within a month of each other. My dog then proceeded to break her foot on New Years.

When I last posted I introduced the baby guinea pig Blini. I was concerned about her and said I'd keep y'all updated. Well:

It turns out Blini was just a little shy. She seems to be in good health >knock on wood< and WOW has she grown! When I got her home I kept her quarantined from my other guinea pig, Onigiri, for about a week. Then I introduced them. I was a little worried about whether they'd get along or not, but they're best buddies now! They're playing or snuggling constantly. It's super-adorable.

Poor Calypso (my dog) is healing up, but she still needs to wear a cast for at least three weeks. She doesn't seem to mind...everyone gives her pity food, and she's getting around just fine.

And now here are a bunch of guinea pig pictures! :D
