Hygiene Break

It was so cute when we saw this. Potato was starting to get bigger, so was kind of trying to challenge Fuzzy as alpha pig, just a little. So he came up and they were teeth chattering and rumble strutting at each other. Then Fuzzy stopped suddenly to groom his face for a minute. Potato waited patiently, then they went back to teeth chattering.

I read later that this is actually a documented behavior in guinea pigs. The alpha pig will interrupt a stand-off with a challenger to groom, as a sign that, "after I win this, we'll still be friends, so don't worry about it." Which is funny, because it's exactly how it came off, even by human body language standards.
