That reminds me of what Shilo did to mine when she was little, I had my guinea pig outside in a cage so he could get fresh air and play in the grass. Well Shilo tipped over the cage and she didn't bite him nor hurt him, but she was chasing him so I ran outside and pick up my Guinea pic and later that night he had died!.....So maybe thats what happened?

It doesn't sound like Pippin did it. Our Lab, Tira, got a hold of a turtle once (that was our pet at the time) and managed to kill it by picking it up. One single tooth went through the back of the turtles shell. Tira was trying to play with it (as far as I'm concerned) and the poor turtle couldn't handle a big ol' puppy dog's tooth.

IF Pippin had killed the guinea pig there would be SOME sort of evidence. If the guinea pig died of fear (which is a possibility since they are very skittish most of the time) it's not Pippin's fault. It's his fault for getting into the hutch (btw, was the door opened forcibly or did someone forget to lock it?) and taking the G.P. out, but not for it dying of fear.
I don't think Pippin deliberatley did anything otherwise there would be marks on it.

Yah it does not sound like pippin killed the G.P you said that pipin was licking it when you saw pippin and the G.P maybe pippin was trying to "save" it?

I completly agree with what Renee said!!!

thanks guys. i know now that it wasn't pippins fault, i am more to blame for letting her play outside on her own. The hutch was closed properly but it isnt very secure, so i bought new locks for it today.

A german shepherd I fostered years ago 'killed' my brothers hampster by following it around the house, poking it with her nose, and nearly inhaling it. She was a very prey driven dog, but once she got a hold of it she didn't do anything... I'm guessing the poor little thing had a heart attack or something - I didn't see any evidence of trama otherwise. It was constantly trying to get out of its cage, my brother had locks and duck tape rigged all over the cage...
It's sad, but it happens.
Sorry for your loss
