Teru, Guinea Pig Sculpture

Teru, Guinea Pig Sculpture/Memorial

This is a portrait of my beloved Teru, sculpted when she was still alive. Little did we know that a year later she would leave us completely heartbroken.  

She was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer at the age of 4, and despite the battle she bravely put on, she left us way too early. 

She was very shy and skittish piggy all her life, always having Rila scout ahead before following gracefully and checking out what’s going on. Teru loved chin rubs, her head would go up so high just to keep receiving the massage! 

I miss snuggling with her and hiding my nose in her silky soft fur, she was such a cuddly piggy!
