Guinea Pigs Steal the Show on “A Little Bit Country”
Corinne Dekker is Garth’s assistant on the show. Corinne adopted her three pigs, Charo, Romeo, and Flossy, from Los Angeles Guinea Pig Rescue. So naturally, when Corinne went to the ranch with Garth, her three piggies went with her and became a little bit country too. Sometimes you have to stay alert to catch them in the episodes. They do not get nearly the airtime some of their fans (including me) think they should, but they light up the screen when they’re on it.
In case anyone thinks that stardom has gone to these piggies’ heads, that is not the case. Charo and company remain quite humble and have wasted no time in using their celebrity status for good. Charo, Romeo, and Flossy (and Corinne) are the honorary celebriguineas for the 2012 SoCal Pignic hosted by OC Cavy Haven and taking place at the Irvine Animal Care Center on July 15 from noon-4pm. So let’s hope for a second season so our favorite celebriguineas will be able to continue to promote adoption. With the way they steal the scene every time they’re on camera, though, the producers may want to consider changing the name of the show to, “Jenny Garth, A Little Bit Cavy.”
