decided to bring cavies into our Binghamton, New York home in August 2000
when Roger, my then four year old grandson, expressed a desire to own a
hamster. I gave it a great deal of thought and decided that a cavy
(Guinea Pig) would be a much better pet. He and I attended a rabbit
and cavy show where he was allowed to choose his own new pet cavy.
At the show he watched as the exhibitors showed their cavies and announced
that he wanted to show his cavy.
June 23, 2000 to October
was Roger's first cavy and beloved pet.
is missed very much.

We have attended several shows and made our own decisions regarding the
varieties that we would like to produce and show.
is my goal to produce happy, healthy animals that can be enjoyed as pets
and exhibited with pride. Although we realize it is not always possible,
we also attempt to breed cavies that can also be registered. We are
now producing and showing registered Peruvians and Peruvian Satins. My passion is the roan Peruvians. Courtney's was her Coronets and Roger still believes that
Macarena was the most beautiful guinea pig of all.
