R.I.P. Antonio "Toni" the Guinea Pig

Antonio "Toni" the Guinea Pig
born October 2005 - died February 25, 2009

The smallest furry member of our family passed away late this morning after being a part of our family for the past 3 1/2 years. Toni hadn't been doing too well the past couple of days and it didn't take long for his little body to shut down.

Toni was the first Guinea Pig that I've ever owned and I thought he was a great pet. He had such a great personality! Whenever we came home he would stand up in his cage and check to see who was here.

Toni had a huge love for baby carrots. He would use his mouth to rattle his cage when he wanted more carrots. It was pretty funny.

Toni wasn't much for coming out of his cage. We'd let him out, but he'd run back up his little cage door and hop back in. He was a little hard to catch when you did want to get him out, but for some reason Mateo never had any trouble getting a hold of him.

Chico could catch him, too and would hold him like a little baby and Toni would just lay there. How funny!

We'll miss you Toni. May you rest in peace.
