Saying Goodbye

Yesterday while Cutie was in speech therapy, Wild Child and I took Little Ricky {Lucy and Desi's first baby} to the pet store. With the new baby {Pam} the cage was a little crowded.

The kids were fine with it...I, however, kept looking over at the container in the passenger seat. I felt like we were taking a family member and leaving him with strangers. I teared up...

Wild Child carried him inside. We talked to one employee and she acted like she had no clue why we were there with our guinea pig. Then another comes out and she was the one I had talked to on the phone. She took Little Ricky out of the container and said, "Of course he would be black." {They already had all black ones.} Then she hands me the container and walks away. Not even a "thank you."

How rude.

We watched for a few minutes. Little Ricky rubbed noses with all the other pigs and then checked out the 3 rabbits. He seemed very happy with all the room to run around. I think I even saw him kick up his little guinea pig heels.

I hope he gets a happy home.
