Thanks for the compliments, guys! I really like taking pictures of my dogs and guinea pigs. So I have a whole bunch, hehe.

Ryu is five? Is that old for a guinea pig? I thought they only lived 2-3 years.
Oh yeah. Luke is like that. He will create a mess in his water bucket and roll around in the mud, then like an hour later, it will just fall off and he's clean. But I do not mind brushing. It can even be relaxing sometimes
It is old for them. Guinea pigs tend to live for 4-6 years. Most of my guinea pigs end up going at 4 for some reason (I changed the way I feed guinea pigs now so they should live longer). Some of them though, are really tough! My first guinea pig lived to be 6. Another one had some kind of a tumor or cyst that could not be removed, along with fighting bumblefoot (it's a guinea pig disease of the foot, in case you didn't know) and she lived to a normal life-span of 5. Ryu is...well, a weenie in most respects but she got real sick last Christmas and beat it, and is perfectly healthy now! Most people don't think guinea pigs can be tough, but they sure can.
