In case some of you have forgotten, or you are new to my blog, above is a photo of WBB1, also known as Winston Bumblebee Barcode the First. He is a guinea pig and he is my friend.

I meet WBB1 when I first came to live with MelT, when I was one week old. Above is a photo of us together from around that time. You can see that we are about the same size. I was 3.2 lbs and WBB1 was 2.8 lbs. The perfect friend. However, things have changed somewhat.

Can you see what changed? Well, I got bigger but WBB1 did not! Why didn’t he? Isn’t he just a baby guinea pig like I’m a baby capybara? Aren’t guinea pigs and capybaras closely related? I have grown up big and strong but Winston, if anything, has just gotten rounder. I’m thinking that maybe he is a dwarf because he has very short legs. Still, that doesn’t explain everything.

Winston is my friend.

Winston is my friend.

Whether he is a dwarf or not, WBB1 is still my friend. Now I have to be very careful not to smash him though.

Our good sides

Our good sides

This is me and Winston showing off our best profiles. Luckily, we both have the same good side. WBB1′s profile might be cuter than mine because he is so colorful. And in this view, you can’t see how “round” he is. Also, you can’t see how sleek I am.

Here we are from the front. I think I look quite regal with my uniformly red coat. Winston just looks gaudy. Not that I’d say anything mean about him. Gaudy is good.

Sniffing Winston's butt

Sniffing Winston’s butt

It might seem rude to humans, but we rodents often sniff each other’s butts. We have a keen sense of smell so we can tell exactly who we are talking to. Winston also smelled my butt.

Delicious ears

Delicious ears

I love to chew on ears, but WBB1′s were the first ones I got a chance to. They are delicious. By now I have also chewed the ears of my kitten, Driftwood, all of my plush animals, and MelT’s. Winston’s are still the best. MelT’s are the worst.

Hey, little buddy

Hey, little buddy

There’s no better way to show a friend that you love them than to give a little kiss. WBB1 and I love each other.

Sulking

Sulking

After MelT put WBB1 back in his cage I was very sad. I lay down on the couch sulking. Next thing I knew I was waking up several hours later.

    WBB1 is looking very healthy and plump, and I think you may have the cutest and wiggliest ears on the planet, M. Be gentle with WBB1. Love you both!

  • Ann Bednarek

    Little Mud, you and WBB1 are so cute together. It’s amazing when you “chew on ears” you know just how much pressure to use so as not to hurt WBB1. You are very gentle. I can see why all your co-pets love and trust you. I love you too. When I come to visit you, I will let you chew on my ears too. XOXOXOX

    It almost looks like you’re popcorning like a true peeg! WBB1 must be very proud.

  • Catherine

    Love it :D

  • Barley Piig

    Will you be my friend too? I am also a guinea pig. I am a brown with a white ring around my neck and I am very special because I have red eyes. I even have a super capy plushy! I am a year old and love stuffed animals.

  • Garibaldi Rous

    I would love to be your friend. You sound very cute. Are you growing big and tall like me or short and round like WBB1?

  • Fred Ross

    My wife and I really enjoy watching Mudskipper and his comrades growing up together. Is Mudskipper just about busting out of his little harness yet? Also, he seems so very mild-mannered for a baby … maybe capybaras are more laid back than other species. And is there such a thing as “capy chow” that you can buy for his bowl?

  • Simon Budja

    This really gets better and better. They are both very photogenic. Really grateful that you share videos with us. Thanks.

  • Rawil

    So cute! WBB1 seems to be too serious, while Muddy is like a child! So cute!

  • Garibaldi Rous

    I am at that awkward stage where nothing fits. My cat harness is getting too small, but dog harnesses are too big.

    MelT says I am very skittish for a capybara. I really run around a lot though, eat things MelT says I shouldn’t, and play with my cat. I am very active.

    There is no capy chow. I get milk (mixed with yogurt and Vitamin C), hay, grass, guinea pig food, rolled oats, and equine senior. Also I sneak cat food whenever I can.

  • Barley Piig

    I am short and round like WBB1, but am told I am getting very cuddly now that I am old enough to be calming down. I am a whole year old now.

    What a beautiful little piglet!
