A wall calendar featuring guinea pigs going for the gold at football games, the Olympics, cycling tournaments, and more.

Guinea Pig Games was first created for the Beijing Olympics in 2008, and has been produced every year since. The little critters were photographed humanely and adorably in a comfortable studio "for no more than five minutes at a time and with plenty of treats," according to publishers Maverick Arts: “Guinea Pig Games is one of our most successful calendars. We hired the guinea pigs from Palace Piggie Rescue... for a donation. The owner of the rescue site handled the guinea pigs."

There's a 2015 edition, and I can't imagine a more inspiring calendar for this new year.
