Galatea Caviary was begun in 1996 after I fell in love with a hairy guinea pig I saw in a pet shop. At that time, I was astonished that a guinea pig could look like that. After a few weeks, I contacted a local guinea pig breeder, Laurette Rockwitz, to buy a mate for my lonely long-haired peruvian. And after that eventful visit with Laurette, my life changed dramatically as I entered into the wonderful world of show cavies.
My first cavy show was in the Spring of '97 at an Ontario Cavy Club Fundraiser, where I took Best In Show with a TSW texel. After that, I was hooked. All these years later and after many great wins, I continue to strive to bring beauty to life. Although, I some times question my sanity in devoting a large portion of my life to showing/raising/grooming guinea pigs!
Below are pictured a few of
Galatea's past show-winning beauties.
