 If Pi will allow it, I really want to get a guinea pig for Marissa.  She wants one and I’ve had five in the past so I’d enjoy taking care of one again.

I’m an animal lover to the extreme so I thought I’d mention some of my personal favorites as well.

My pug sisters – Dixie and Dolly – and my nephew – Bayou.

My grandma’s dog – Duke – who now belongs to my cousin Jason.

Willy and Shiloh – who belong to my friends Jim and Andrea.

Mocha – an energetic little one who used to belong to my brother.

Max – who belongs to my friend Jason.

And, of course, the best one of all – my beautiful kitty Pi.
