important thing to me is my pet Sunny. She is a longhaired guinea pig.
Sunny has an elliptical shaped body and is about nine inches long. Her
body is covered with a combination of white, black, and orange-gold.
The importance is not so much the animal as the memory that comes with
When I was in third grade, I was in a combo class, meaning that
there were third and fourth graders in my class. That year I had Ms.
Barney as a teacher. She became my favorite teacher that I ever had,
and she had the best class pet, Sunny.
Over the weekends, Sunny had to be cared for. Kids volunteered to
take her home. I offered to take Sunny home often, and the year
practically slipped by. I probably took her home the most and was asked
to take Sunny home over the summer. When asked, I said, "Yes!"
I asked my parents, and they agreed to having Sunny over the summer.
My teacher planned to keep the same class and come back next year with
a fourth and fifth grade combo. Except then she got a different job and
had a child. She called my parents and asked them if they would keep
Sunny. That's how I got her.
