introducing smokey

Today our family acquired a new member; introducing Smokey:

Smokey is a baby Guinea pig, and the picture above is pretty close to actual size.  To say he is cute would be an understatement; he might be the cutest object there is; a physical embodiment of the word "fuzzball".  Especially endearing, when he is comfortable (like in this picture) he makes little low burbling noises.  In case you're wondering, Guinea pigs are not pigs, and do not come from Guinea; they are rodents, and come from the Andes.  They are however adorable little pets, and we are delighted to have Smokey join us.  Stay tuned for more :)
