offense, but if I was her parent I wouldn't. She proves her irresponsibility around animals more then once, and each time it's serious enough to potentially threaten the animal's life! Letting a post-op dog run away, risking infections by putting two recovering dogs in the same cage, putting a baby guinea pig in the trunk of a junk-car....

I liked the book because it was about a guinea pig. I want to get a guinea pig for Christmas. They are good pets because they are like bunnies--they are very cuddly.
