Hello... Dervish <sneer>

Nurgle
...what, what, what?

Becky: Actually, considering our trip, it&acute;s a miracle that they all didn&acute;t wind up on the side of the road in, say, Nebraska!

I was considering myself lucky that you didn&acute;t dump them all in my lap and turn tail back home. You still had, what, 96 guinea pigs at that point?

Oh, wait.

Then you would have *gasp* had to drive all the way back across Nebraska! Ack!

Beige. That&acute;s what diluted chocolate is. It comes with pink eyes.

OK, beige/taupe/milk chocolate. Whatever, Monty&acute;s #80 and 81 in the Cavyspirit adoptables album and Charlotte, his girlfriend, is #82, 83. So what color is her third color E? Black, white and ?

BTW, he&acute;s not obnoxious any more. They&acute;re very sweet together.

Beats me! Bad red? Weird cream?
She&acute;s a beautiful pig, though.

Dervish is still obnoxious. She thinks it&acute;s cool to sit in the hay rack suspended from the condo door....while the door is open. To get there she has to stomp thru a suspended pellet bowl scattering pellets everywhere. She also can&acute;t be bothered to walk around the water dish. She stomps right thru it splashing water everywhere.

We got piggy pictures! Erin posted the rest of the pictures I sent her tonight (that was FAST Erin!!). There are two litters pictured here, with a third litter due any day and a fourth litter in a few weeks.

That&acute;s 21 pigs up for adoption today! Check &acute;em out.

Oh, and the babies from the first two litters can be weaned Oct 25. My Guinea Pig Education class is Oct 26 so I&acute;m holding them ransom!

No class... No pigs for you!

Those are some very attractive and adoptable pigs, adorable babies. Darcella is my kind of pig, what a sweetheart! Good luck with the class and the adoptions.

I just had to share.

My vet is the GREATEST. She is going to see all the rescue pigs for ONE vet visit fee ($35). So Monday, I&acute;m transporting all 21 pigs to the vet (don&acute;t ask me how - can pigs be bungie tied to the roof?). She will sex all the babies then too. Yippee!!

Wow! That sounds pretty overwhelming. I hope she will be able to catch any serious problems.

Great vet.

I just divide ours up between 2 baskets - vertically packed and toss &acute;em in the back seat of the car.

But they&acute;re used to being jammed together.

Yeah, but these can&acute;t be together. We have mommas with babies, unneutered males, some with problems that haven&acute;t been identified. So if they weren&acute;t living together before, we are keeping them seperated. So I imagine a bunch of cardboard boxes with the various groups.

Don&acute;t know if you have any of these, but it works for keeping males and females apart:

Take a cat/small dog carrier, use the grids and cable tie two inside making them a double decker.

can&acute;t seem to find where to add attachments, so I&acute;m going to upload them to my album then come back and post them.

They would have to be very athletically inclined to accomplish anything!

What a great idea! Much easier than juggling multiple carriers. But I gotta ask, who gets to be on top? ;-)
