BB was our gorgeous guinea pig hand raised from birth - he was 5 years old. 

We often wondered if he knew he was a guinea pig as he was so 'human' and he so enjoyed the company of people. When he became sick, he struggled so hard to pull through and even to the end he would look at us with a knowing gaze and a loving nudge. We will miss you so much BB and the joy that you have brought to us. We take comfort in these words that you liked to hear-

I love you BB  <3

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there: I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the Diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
  When you awaken in the morning's hush
  I am the swift uplift rush
  Of quiet birds circling flight
I am the soft star-shine at night.
  Do not stand at my grave and cry ,
I am not there, I did not die.
