Savannah had to have two teeny cavities filled yesterday. I was worried that she'd have to get a numbing shot, but they were so small she didn't have to. In anticipation of that, we made a deal that if she would let them give her a shot and fill her cavities, she could have a special reward. She chose guinea pigs. (We had already been discussing getting them.)
Savannah did WONDERFUL! She didn't peep once. She did ask them to "please be careful with that tooth back there. It kind of hurts when you do that." But she said it so politely they chuckled at her. I was so proud of her!
So we went straight to the pet store and purchased two small male guinea pigs. (At least we were told they're both males...we'll see.) Izzy named her guinea pig Peanut Butter because he's the color of peanut butter. Savannah named her brown and white one Max. They ask constantly to hold them and clean the cage and feed them.
