Interlude: My Actual Guinea Pig

Today is in honor of Teddy, our incumbent guinea pig who is currently undergoing dental treatment.

Yes, there are guinea pig dentists!

ThisĀ is not what you would call an inexpensive event, and I hope your guinea pig or other loved pet never has to go through dental work. These can get to be human-sized problems.

But we do what we can with what we have.

Teddy Pigg helping me with my logic puzzle

Mind you, my book launch is still going on this week, which includes the free Kindle promo. While we’re at the vet today, take a look at your very own guinea pig doctor!

This Guinea Pig Thinks He’s a Doctor (Book Launch!)

Once there was a guinea pig named George, who lived in a house with a person named George and all of the Person George’s family.

The Person George was a doctor who made house calls.

Whenever the phone would ring, and someone in the house would answer it, they would say, “George, a patient’s calling!”

And Guinea Pig George would think they meant him.

Oh yes, I am already back with my second book for 2017! Available in Kindle and paperbook formats.

And! I’m running yet another FREE Kindle promo for a limited time. Get George now:

(I also just now found out that pasting an Amazon link directly into WordPress generates the above awesome image with links. Whoops!)

I first wrote George in 1999. So says the latest draft I found when I dug the story back up a year or so ago. I polished it, got it edited by the absolutely marvelous Qdmerit@Fiverr.com, and had the equally marvelous Kelly illustrate him just as she did for Sidney Snail in “What’s at the End of Your Nose?

I’ve been a huge fan of guinea pigs for a long time. You can meet my current guinea pig, Teddy, over on his own fan page (among other guinea pigs I find and post).

But now: Meet George!
