Just have to tell you my 4 yr old ds came home from childcare today and said 'they brought in some skinny pigs for us to look at mummy!!' Took me a while to figure out what he meant!

They're all so gorgeous! Hope they're keeping cool enough!! The names are brilliant!

"another damn bath, what's the matter with our human, does she not like eau d' guinea pig?"

Sadie left, Mollie right, sulking after this morning's bath. Their demeanour shows what they think of it all.
Have been fortified with parsley and are now outside muttering and grumbling between themselves 😃

We bathed GP4 GP5 GP6 today , they did not consent to photos grin and are now outside airing themselves in the run.

Our pigs are 3 smooths, one long haired and our Teddy boar.
Teddy and Rex fur is amazing water just rolls off it like it's Goretex. And as soon as they leave the water, dry in seconds.
There could a market here for Teddy/Rex drip dry fur coats/jackets (synthetic of course, I'm vegetarian wink )

eau d' guinea pig grin

DD first boar called it Aroma de Boar

EastMidsGPs Sat 23-Jul-16 13:33:52

grin
Oddly enough as we sat out in the garden waiting for them to dry, DH mused that there mustv be a market for a plastic case type thing that they sat in whilst warm hair blows through (Mol hates the hair dryer)
I've been thinking a contraption more along the lines of the coin operated doggie bath set up the local pet shop has smile

EastMidsGPs Sat 23-Jul-16 18:10:51

And Sadie is already green AGAIN angryangryangry

grin they add green to their colour pallete for Summer (according to DD)
Our boar is an off white with grey, an agouti half face, some fawn, a couple of black spots and a green mouth grin

And when he grazes he usually has sh*t between his toes, not even his own wink

Good job we love him eh?

MaelstromOfLunacy Thu 28-Jul-16 14:37:01

Our piggie palace has arrived!!! They've been getting grumpy in their temporary home but now this is set up they're well happy smile here's Mac exploring - Guy is hiding in one of the houses

EastMidsGPs Thu 28-Jul-16 14:59:33

So live little pigs grin

Sorry to be a bit late with my pigtures. Here's my boys making the most of a rainy day by relaxing in Current Buns basket

And not to be outdone, Current Bun is playing with his bell

KittensandKnitting Thu 28-Jul-16 18:44:25

Is your Guinea Pig actually called Current-Bun as that's brilliant if he is 😍😍

KittensandKnitting Thu 28-Jul-16 18:44:37

I also want to steal them all grin
