Guinea pig; the latest in a long line of guinea pig scribes who preserve major events for posterity. Furthermore, a hamster would be closer to Agnes in size and I don’t know of any hamster breed with such luxurious locks, while there are several guinea pig breeds that have them.
Well done! Brava!
I’m pretty sure the guinea pig is a descendant, and there’ve been a few “silky” ancestors in the mix since Clover’s time.
Seems to be a previously-unknown guinea pig journalist, most likely descended from Clover, Son of Gumdrop, who reported on Jules’s trial.
Aww! Young Mag’s little brothers are doing their best to distract Baba. And I Hope we get to see more of that long-haired guinea pig in the future, so cute!
Definitely a guinea pig print journalist, continuing a tradition that we have not seen represented since the last major raccoon story line.
This reminds me of my Mom’s former coworker who was a perpetual liar. Around Thanksgiving one year, this woman was bragging about her “homemade” pumpkin cheesecake to one of the customers. Partly because everyone who dealt with her regularly knew what a liar she was and partly because her answers made it hilariously obvious that she had never baked a thing in her life, the customer kept asking questions about her recipe and process. The best part was when the customer asked if she used canned pumpkin and she proudly declared that she would never use that garbage. Instead, she claimed her DIL and granddaughter saved the scrapings from making their jack-o-lanterns for her in the freezer. Mom and I have been joking about “pumpkin gut cheesecake” every Thanksgiving since.
I seem to recall the the “breastplate” was a children’s tape recorder from the late ’90s. Old Boot used it to blast his foes with loud noise.
She “knows” Grandmag needs her because she needs it to be true.
