is a 4 yr old guinea pig that joined our family when the person who originally owned him discovered her child was horribly allergic. He let's my son carry him all over and even likes to take weekend trips with us. Dragon loves attention and doesn't like to share his pettings with the dog. If we stop petting him, to pet the dog, he will reach over and nip at the dog until we go back to petting him. Don't worry, the dog figured it out and nudges his way between our hand and Dragon.

Dragon does get curious which resulted in his getting stuck in the log. He waswalking around, with the log around his middle, but could not see where he
was going. My first thought was of Pooh and being stuck in Rabbit's house. Idec ided I couldn't wait for him to lose weight so I freed him. He has never crawled through that opening again.
