Flashback Friday

Ever since wayyy back in 2002, March has been National Adopt-a-Rescued-Guinea-Pig-Month. Here we see how guinea piggehs have been spreading the cute since at least the 1950s.

    That is a ginormous guinea pig! I Love their fur and weird feet and hands and how they kinda look like a small eared rabbit but they have their own look and are a staple of cuteness!

  2. rocky griffin says:

    Let us not forget that the owner is super cute!

  3. Smartypants says:

    Adorable! I love old-timey pix of people and their pets. I have a book of tintypes from the 19th century, and one of my faves is a group of household servants with their little dog.

    YAY!! I love the Cleveland Zoo! Have to go there,,,once the snow stops.

  5. Anybody track down that little girl holding the guinea pig?–as her name tag is easy to read. She might get a kick out of seeing her photo on the inter webs!

  6. Cute little girl! With her scarf on, makes me think of a young Audrey Hepburn….
