Meet guinea pigs Shaggy and Cheddar. They were taken in by the Bird and Small Animal Rescue in Newfoundland and Labrador in spring 2013. They had been neglected for awhile.
They were officially adopted in June 2013 and have become known online for their fun photo shoots and seasonal costumes.

Easter is also a big deal, as they have some rabbit roommates.
In the summer, they try to sell fresh greens for extra cash, but usually end up eating their supply.
Hallowe'en costumes are crucial for such fabulous pigs-about-town.
Here they are trick-or-treating. Happy pig-o-ween!
Shaggy and Cheddar have also been known to celebrate Pride Week.
They are very vocal spokespigs, advocating acceptance and tolerance for all.
All this modeling can get a little messy. Here they are bathing and being shampooed in a foot spa that has been turned into a guinea pig hot tub. Shaggy's hair requires extensive blow drying post-bath.
After being such good piggies all year, of course they got to visit with Santa last Christmas. They asked for celery and carrots.
Santa filled their pig-sized stockings!

Being festive makes them very hungry.
Cheddar turned 3 and Shaggy turned 4 in June. Happy birthday little guys!
