Harlow’s Adoption Birthday | Beadmas Day 10

Happy Beadmas 2020! I hope you had a great week. Today, we are celebrating Harlow’s Adoption Birthday, as well as Day 10 of Beadmas!

In today’s blog post, I am sharing some of my favourite facts about my very special guinea pig. Many of you came to know Harlow on my Youtube videos. She often co-hosted with me and was a great little jewellery model. She was also (and still is) one of my very best friends. She is now a Guardian Guinea Angel. She went to heaven in the Spring of 2019.

So, if you ready! Make sure to grab a delicious cup of tea (Harlow would recommend, Buddha’s Blend from DAVIDsTEA, that was her favourite) and let’s get started!

Many people described Harlow as more like a dog, then a guinea pig. She loved being by my side. She would come out of her habitat to find me. She also loved exploring around our home and going on adventures with us outside. She came on picnics, short nature walks (we would carry her) and once she even came to a waterfall with us! Check out my Youtube Video “In-Loving Memory” for a photo.

She was also washroom trained. So much so, that she would let me know when she would have to go and I would bring her back to her habitat.

Her favourite foods were kale, arugula, apples and strawberries. Oh, and of course Timothy Hay and her Oxbow Support treats!

Harlow also loved “tea time” with me. She enjoyed taste testing all the different herbal teas. She loved “Harlow Approving” the “tea of the day” during DAVIDsTEA 24 Days of Tea too.

Harlow was extremely affectionate and loved cuddle time. She also loved to take naps with me and would gentle wake me up when she got hungry or had to go to the washroom. I would drop her off and not long later, she would be “wheeking” for me to come back and get her.

She would also “purr” a very affectionate sound, all the time! This is one of the sounds I miss hearing the most.

I think one of my favourite things about Harlow was how compassionate and loyal she was. Whenever I was having a tough day or not feeling well, she would never leave my side.

Harlow’s personality was confident, compassionate and courageous. She was the leader (or Queen, as we like to say) of our two other guinea pigs, Zooey and Georgina. She loved bossing them around and “setting them straight”! Harlow enjoyed both Zooey and Georgina’s friendship, but she was extra close with Georgina.

Harlow also loved meeting new human friends, especially if they gave her treats! She was very social for a guinea pig

Harlow was an Abyssinian Guinea Pig which means she had beautiful rosette-like fur. It would grow in different directions and would grow out in “circular like” shapes.

The colour of her fur was a mixture of colours: red, gold, blonde and white. I also liked to say her fur was a caramel colour.

And that concludes some of my favourite facts about Harlow! She was a very special guinea pig and a best friend I will never forget.

The bond with a pet can be so strong and special, no matter their size or species! Do you have any special pets that you hold close to your heart?

    Buddha’s Blend (David’s Tea)

    Harlow purred (I had a guinea pig when I was a teen and she (Patches) had some interesting squeaks, but not purring ) that’s awesome!

  32. Buddha’s Blend from Dabid’s Tea was Harlow’s favorite tea.
    She was washroom trained and was giving you signs with her noise and I think this was fascinating communication between both of you !
