Christmas photo session (part I)

guinea_pigs_tales_profile_kirkOur human female decided we should have a photo session for this Christmas so we could have new and adequate profile pictures. And she started searching for props… At some point we really got scared about all her fancy ideas and decided to keep a close eye on her. I mean it is Christmas and we love our fans and followers, but public embarrassment is out of question.

But she kept plotting quietly without sharing a thing with us. And on Saturday she went shopping. When she came back, she refused to take out of the back pack any item, so I was imagining the worst. I was already picturing myself among red candles and a lot of little Santa. When I heard Sunday is the day, I’ve tried to convince the rest of the gang to run away from home and come back in January, but Worf had a good argument against saying it was too cold outside and no fresh veggies for the road.

Anyhow, on Sunday we realized there was no escape… At least for I and Worf, because Data and Spock seemed decided not to cooperate. And we (I and Worf) ended up on the dining table, apparently the most suitable object in the house in the lack of the Christmas tree. There was also a felt reindeer and a Santa’s hat involved.

On our way to the dining table, I spoke with Worf and decided to give her our support hopping we will end the session quickly and maybe have some floor time together. So, every photo taken was a success, although none of us has a big smile on their faces. True, some pellets to bribe us helped also.



After the humans decided we did well, they tried to dissipate our doubts with some treats: a twigs basket filled with grass, corn, fruits chips etc. Nice, but not awesome, especially for some raw vegetarians as we are. I mean who eats processed carrot cookies when fresh carrots are better? But we’ve managed to do a big mess out of that basket and that pleased us most.


Keep close, Spock and Data will soon share there side of the story because they were finally tricked into participating to the photo session.
