DD got the three hogs on her bed to take a photo for her screen saver.

Three cuddly tubby little hoglets, how difficult can it be.......grin

GP5 (my little Himalayan) got very confused when we played some "Guinea-Pigs Sounds" from YouTube and went off to find the cheeky beggar who was trying to muscle in on their cosy trio.

GP4 (DDs tri-colour) kept rolling her eyes and hiding under the white cover

GP3 was doing a sterling job of looking handsome and boary.......until this photo where he decided it was all too much of a faff.......and closed his eyes grin

We're so looking forward to doing their traditional Christmas Eve photo. We can't get them to look in the same direction....but we need to do that and get them to keep their hats on shock

Fab picture 70 smile

This photo is lifted from Blackberry Patch fb. It shows Shai on her friendship date where she was bonded with her new friends. So she had only met Millie and Coco a few minutes earlier.

Lurvvely photos of the furry folk.

70 - GP3 is a huge hog and a half. He could have given my Smooth pig a run for his money when Smooth was in his prime. Smooth is a shadow of his former self and now only has 3 chins. Scruffy is now the larger pig, although he hasn't noticed and still accepts Smooth as 'boss-pig'. I will attempt photos later.

Have now taken some photos, although it is a dark day and two of my lot are black so they're not the best quality.

The pigs were on their way to their run which currently sports a John Lewis Monty the penguin paper bag full of hay - apparently, it's the best thing ever!

This is Knives.

She's had a rough few week. Bad ear infection, stopped eating, stopped pooing and very nearly died. Perked up with a lot of care but abscesses developed and she lost the ear.

She's healing really well and is back to her usual self.

You wouldn't believe how much I love her!

fortifiedwithtea Wed 10-Dec-14 12:03:09

Aww bless her. Such a spectacular array of whiskers.

Here's wishing Knives a full recovery so she can tuck into some lovely Christmas vegetables fsmile

fortified there are 3 pigs on Gumtree that look so like your NaughtyGirl and MilliePig (the third one looks nothing like Coco)

Do all guineas have DoppleGangers?

(GP1 had loads of lookie-likies, must be some factory churning out golden agouti smooths)

70isaLimitNotaTarget Wed 10-Dec-14 15:19:51

Our Tri-Colour sow is about 3oz lighter than GP3 , she's less fluffy --and heftier round the rump, deffo not pg !

We reckon she's just porky grin

fortifiedwithtea Thu 11-Dec-14 09:48:32

70 you are right, Naughty Girl has a double. Had it not been that the other guinea is only a year old, I would have declared they must be twins.

Gumtree I is depressing reading. So many pets being re-homed just because the kids have got bored angry

guineapiglet Fri 12-Dec-14 08:38:56

Dear all
Loving all the photos, always cheers me up!! Do you remember kritiqs wonderful Scottish snowy pigs and the calendar we suggested making?
Got a lovely PC Card from my last remaining guinea nephew, sitting on the settee with a cat and their new dog. His expression was one of utter--terror--bemusement. His little pink lip was all tremblyfshockfgrin

PixieofCatan Fri 12-Dec-14 09:28:05

kingjoff glad to see bunny is doing better! smile

Gumtree really fucks me off, anybody selling on gumtree because they get bored should be banned from keeping pets angry

Ashi again in the pictures.

fortifiedwithtea Fri 12-Dec-14 12:36:33

Ah Pixie, I love to see Ashi pictures. He is very pretty <3

I think the second photo needs a caption:
When Mummy said "Let's play Buckaroo, I didn't know I was going to be the donkey"

wink smile

PixieofCatan Fri 12-Dec-14 12:54:00

smile Thanks fotified I love him, he is utterly gorgeous smile I am taking advantage of every day with him as he's not going to be around for very long I don't think! So he is out most of the time when I'm home smile

We saw the rodentologist earlier who thinks that it's likely his liver causing seizures but finding out for certain would mean anaesthetising him to run tests, and neither of us are happy with that option (high risk anyway, even without potential liver problems)

I haven't posted that picture to his FB page yet so when I do that'll be the caption grin
Between him and Zhaan I have two of the prettiest rats I've ever seen! smile

PixieofCatan Fri 12-Dec-14 12:58:44

That middle paragraph was supposed to be finished blush But yeah, liver problems, therefore not likely to have a long life. Vet was talking in weeks and months, especially as he's a nice shade of yellow at the moment under his fur. I assumed it was buck grease but as she mentioned it I realised it's quite consistently over him, so it may be jaundice.

In the photos are Zhaan "helping" with Settlers of Catan, Haku in the scarf and the three girls. The younger two squabble quite often, it's very funny to watch, then Nibbles comes along and within minutes the two younger ones are squeaking as she tells them both off. You can tell exactly what she's doing too as she'll go up, tell them off and then they follow her back to the 'nest' before the squeaking commences grin Considering that Nibbles is over 100g lighter than Zhaan it's quite funny.

DD picked our boar up this morning to put them outside. He was troughing some Readigrass and doing his vampire impression wink

guineapiglet Fri 12-Dec-14 22:37:48

fgrinfgrin
Love the vampire expression!!!!
He really has a wonderful coat and colour, would so love to give him a cuddle!!

NorahBone Sat 13-Dec-14 12:53:31

Our boys: Dirk and Bert smile

velourvoyageur Mon 15-Dec-14 06:40:01

love that 70

are those chinchillas Norah? so cute!

Two of our most gorgeous pigs came from Freecycle which is a bit like Gumtree- the lady was lovely but felt she couldn't give them enough attention with her job. I'm glad she posted the ad at least. One of them used to actually jump up at you when you went into the run to get them in at night. If you sat down he would get into your lap and wait for you to stand up. My mum thinks it's because he wanted to avoid being picked up, but I think he was just an excitable piggy smile

I miss having GPs so much! just not possible atm....
when I can I shall have a HERD I tell you

PixieofCatan Mon 15-Dec-14 12:33:46

norah what are Dirk and Bert? Degus or Gerbils or something else? confused Whatever they are they're cute grin

WyrdByrd Mon 15-Dec-14 22:45:10

Gileswithachainsaw Mon 15-Dec-14 22:48:59

NorahBone Tue 16-Dec-14 17:10:11

They're degus. A bit like rats with fuzzier tails smile

MyballsareSandy Sun 21-Dec-14 09:28:14

Thought I'd add a pic of our little guy. I was very resistant about getting him two years ago, but was ground down by DDs. So glad they persuaded me.
