HARRODSBURG - Izabella, a blue-ribbon-winning guinea pig owned by Avery Edwards, has had a busy life.
Izabella was born just last October but already has met her mate and had a litter of three baby guinea pigs. Tuesday evening at the Mercer County Fair and Horse Show, she won a blue ribbon for being the smallest youth pet in the pet show.
Of course, Izabella didn't do it all alone. Avery Edwards, 10, said she read about the pet show in the newspaper and decided to enter.
Earlier this year, Izabella was introduced to Johnny, a guinea pig that is the pet of the second-grade class taught by Avery's mother, Denise Edwards at Mercer County Elementary School.
