I have fallen in love with a poor abandoned sow I saw on the RSPCA website... Not far from my house... Could easily go and get her... Waiting for DP to get home tonight and I will show him! She is 2 years old and is just waiting to be housed with other piggies.
Go get her I recently adopted GP3 and have totally fallen in love with the little fella. Just imagine how happy her life will be being given a safe new home with other piggies to bond/play with!! Is hubbie likely to be a problem?
It could work out or you could end up with a 2+1 setup.
If you do get Golria (and change her name) you'll need to do gradual introductions. Just because she's a sow doesn't mean she'll be enamoured of two little piggies. And there might be a reason she's alone.
But if you can do it slowly and prepare to keep her side-by-side if it doesn't work...then at least this guinea girl would have company of her own kind, and a lovely home.
Your DP needs a "chat". Mine is the same but I'd worry about the logistics of more than 2 boars so he's right in our case.
70 my mum's name is Gloria, she's never liked it either
Oh do try and get Gloria and keep her name If she has been on her own I'm sure she'll be over the moon to see other piggies even if they are 13 weeks old.
Just one thing, if you've seen her on a RSPCA web-site, won't you need a home check first? I've fallen for a handsome boar and am waiting for RSPCA to phone me to arrange a visit <drums fingers, very impatient>
You've reminded me that I need to bath my boys (I was trying to ignore the smell ). They hate it and kick up a right fuss - it's a 12 person job really! Thank goodness for Current Bun who is self-cleaning.
Looking forward to the pics of Poppy and Daisy and of Gloria when she arrives. Did your DH sigh and give in immediately? Mine moans about the mess the boys generate and the room they take up but he always goes to say 'bye' whenever he leaves the house. Even my Dad makes sure to say 'hello' when he comes round. I think men like them more than they let on.
