The 5th Annual Minnesota Guinea Pig Pignic

It's that time of year again! Time for Minnesota guinea pig owners to gather and show off their piggers, talk about their piggers, eat food while watching piggers play and mingle, and buy things for their piggers - and themselves. There are some interesting new events planned this year, such as a chance for owners to have their pictures taken with their fabulous guinea pigs, a flea market where used pet items can be bought and sold, and a raffle with several nifty items.

We Minnesotans are not snooty - guinea pig lovers from other parts of the country are welcome to join in the festivities. For lots more information and updates, please visit the 5th Annual Spring Minnesota Pignic web site: 2004MinnesotaPignic

It is important that all guinea pigs brought to the Pignic are healthy and free of bugs. Please do not bring any guinea pigs that have recently been sick or are currently being treated for an illness. Guinea pigs that are suspected of having bugs or have been treated for bugs or fungal infections in the last month should also be left at home to ensure that they don't pass anything to the other pigs. We also ask that all young children be closely supervised around the animals and are not allowed to play with the guinea pigs without first getting the owners permission.

Hope to see you there. Happy wheeking!
