Guinea Pig Icon his page contains directions and information about the Piggie Extravaganza in Arlington VA! If you have been hiding somewhere, you should know that on this date we will have the opportunity to visit with John of the Winkin' Cavy Store (and probably buy some of his goodies) as well as Peter Gurney! You know Peter, he's the guy who has written something like five books on our little piggens! In addition, Judi has lined up a holistic herbal store that can provide all the herbs mentioned in Peter's "Piggy Potions" book, and she is trying to get some exotic vets to come to answer questions. And American Pet Diner and Oxbow Hay companies are also going to be there. There may be other resources available.

This will not only be a chance to meet these world renown folks, but also to meet the folks that you have been visiting with on the Digest for all this time. Given that it is near Reagen Airport, and very central to the East Coast, many folks from New England should be able to attend, and many folks from the Carolinas should be able to come, and I'm sure some will even venture over the moutains from of the Midwestern States will be there.

If you would like the latest updates, Judi has set up a page for the information on the Extravaganza. She intends to keep it up to date so check there for the latest info.

The following web site shows pictures of cages available for purchase at the Guinea Pig Extravaganza. If you are interested in purchasing any, please email Judi Lainer at and she will email you the details.

So mark your calendars, and start saving your bottle money. This will be a major event!
