The friends of his person decided to commission a portrait of Wellington dressed as Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, and to surprise the dearly departed Guinea Pig’s person with it.

They traveled from far and wide to come together, and they gave the gift to Wellington’s person, who was touched by the thoughtfulness of her friends, and glad to have a happy reminder of her pet.
