This morning we lost our eldest Guinea Pig Rowan. Rowan was born several years ago and was one of the first guinea pigs I ever bred.
Her mother was Stella (who we lost in 2011) and Polo (who we also lost in 2011).
In her long time with us Rowan had several litters the babies we kept included Daisy and Melon who are both still with us.
Late last year she also became a grandmother when her daughter Daisy gave birth to three pups. Only one survived and Rowan lives on in her beautiful grandson, Rainbow.
Rowan was also the last of our rossetted guinea pigs. All of our remaining piggies are smooth hair or long hair.
So rest in peace Rowan you were an amazing character and my life will never quite be the same without you saying hello to me everyday
