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!
