The Guinea Pig Wedding

This week’s blog is by Stacy Winnick.  It’s about a guinea pig wedding.  Her two guinea pigs Ferkel and Root Bear were married in a lovely backyard ceremony.  Becky served as the maid of honor and Sam served as the best man.  It is a beautiful love story…

“The Guinea Pig Wedding”  By Stacy Winnick

One day many summers ago, returning home after a tedious day of work and yet another traffic jam, I opened the door to hear “It’s a wedding in the back yard!” I dropped my keys and purse and followed my two kids to witness this glorious and very unexpected event!

"Ferkel, the wise Groom"

“Ferkel, the wise Groom”

MEET THE GROOM

Ferkel and his friend Fluffy worked many years as alarm clocks to wake my kids for school. When Fluffy died, Ferkel was devastated, and so were the kids.

"Root Bear, the spunky Bride"

MEET THE BRIDE

When we met Root Bear, she was introduced as “Watch out! She bites!” She never did bite, though she was very headstrong. We named her Root Beer because she looked like a Root Beer Float! Her name gradually evolved to Root Bear, in much the same way that Ferkel evolved from Freckle.

Spunky little Root Bear was impressed by the wisdom and experience Ferkel brought to their relationship. Ferkel was dazzled by his charming new cage-mate.

“I am so cute!”

First though, have you ever seen a guinea pig with such fancy nostrils?

Let’s go take a look at The Wedding Photos!

“My veil, please!”

The bride gets a veil. Wait, Ferkel! That is the wedding feast!

“My Yarmulke, please!”

Ferkel gets a Yarmulke. Why not? Wait, Ferkel! That is the wedding feast!

“Too slow! Yummy!”

Wait, Ferkel! That is the wedding feast! Oh, never mind.

“It’s official, now!”

Mazel tov! Okay, you can eat it now, Ferkel!

“You first, my love…”

Ferkel couldn’t wait to eat those greens! Root Bear was demure and reserved for the first time in her life.

“Oh, this is good! Oops!”

Root Bear finally goes for the greens, too, and loses her veil!

“I’ll still love you in the morning…”

Embarrassed, she runs into the chuppa and hides from the groom.

“Some comfort from the best man…”

It’s okay, Root Bear! He still loves you!

“And they lived happily ever after…”

What kind of wedding is it without a kiss?

And yes, they did live happily ever after!
