Laura, yes, that's what I meant. And Slinky, those seem like good reasons to me too.

But there will be people who come here for the first time just looking for a home for their pigs who would never have posted if they knew they were going to be criticized and hassled.

Just thought I'd let you know that Vinnie and Paprika have settled into their new home and seem quite happy. They are very alert, friendly, talkative piggies and I can't wait to introduce them to Penelope (of course I will wait, but you know what I mean).

They seem to have been very well cared for and enjoy being handled. They are chunky little girls at 1 lb 13 oz each. My daughter did rename Paprika, though, and she is now known as Poppy. I think this is going to work out nicely.

OK, let me see if I can do this right. Here's a picture of Poppy: http://fff.fathom.org/pages/Aranid/paprika.jpg and here is one of Vinne: http://fff.fathom.org/pages/Aranid/Vinnie2.jpg.

I hope I did that right!

Ack! A peruvian! You have much more patience for grooming than I it seems. I just give them haircuts.

Vinnie has SUCH a face!

How are they doing, by the way?

They are doing well. Thanks for asking. They seem a little bit more skittish today, but once we catch them they enjoy being held and talk and sing to us the whole time. Poppy rather thinks she runs the place and is not a bit shy about demanding her veggies.

And you're right, Vinnie is such a cutie! Her face is very expressive! She is quite a little licker, too.

I love Agouti's. Is she a lemon agouti? My sweetest pig ever was a little silver agouti. You are so lucky, and so are the pigs.

I didn't know what a lemon agouti was, but I found a picture, and yes, I believe that is right.

Picture #5 is my Mocha, the little silver agouti. She was a special pig.

Holly, I recently lost Fiona, so with Penelope and the new girls, I have 3. But with 5 dogs and 2 cats, that makes a pretty full house!

Sandra, Mocha was indeed a special girl! Adorable!

Tiggerlily, I have a funny story. A fellow teacher was telling her students about my 5 guinea pigs and 4 cats. One of her first graders said, in wonderment, "That's NINE animals!"

When my friend said I had a husband, too, this same boy's eyes got wide and he said, "That's TEN!"
