I think Lark gave you a wonderful suggestion here on acquiring a pet. You can also try maintaining bird feeders, or feeding the squirrels or other wildlife in your area. If you want to connect with any animal including your fellow human beings the best way is by being kind and generous, be pleasant, considerate and helpful. Not sure about the talking guinea pigs, but most animals respond well to those who feed them, so to gain their trust its best to feed them. I tend to be a lot friendlier after an ice cream cone myself. A handful of treats just works better than whining "pay attention to me!" You composed a spell to ask mother nature for a puppy, but I think a more effective use of your time would be to simply ask your parents for a puppy or other pet. If they feel you are mature and responsible enough to care for one they will likely allow you to have a pet. Your sister has guinea pigs,so your parents are obviously not opposed to having pets in the home.
