Hi Max! I don't normally like loud noises, but the warm part was good, especially after being all wet. We didn't get any treats after the bath, so I think I am going to have to talk to my Mum next time and make her give us some treats! I know she has some parsley here because she came home with some more parsley plants on the weekend.

Toby has declared his disdain to Thaddeus ever since we adopted the boy. I know Thaddeus often gets tossed out of the loft. And I know he gets trodden on, used as a step stool and a pillow. However, I now have photographic evidence that Toby is softening as he ages and may actually appreciate Thaddeus these days.

And a gratuitous Fat Max photo just because he's so blobby and cute.

Max, don't listen to your mama.
You are not Fat, you are just very well-filled-in, literally, in every single nook and cranny of yours. :)

Me love your Thaddeus .

Max and Toby have celebrated their 5th birthday! We all sang to them. Sam-I-Am had to turn off his mike so fellow zombie slayers wouldn't know he was singing to gimmee pigs, as Charle calls them.

Happy Birthday to You!
Happy Birthday to You!

Toby: Why are they all looking at us and making noise?!?
Max: They're going to eat us!

Happy Birthday, Max and Toby!
Image
Me: Toby! No nicking cake before we're done singing!
Toby: Peppers!
Max: They're going to eat us!

Happy Birthday to you!


Image
Bekah: Make a wish and eat your candles!
Toby: Peppers!
Max: They're going to eat us!

So I gave Max a piece of carrot. He's such a chicken in his old age. He used to be the bold one.
Toby: Nom! Nom! Nom!
Max: Nom! Nom! Nom!

When I put them and their birthday cakes back into their bachelor pad, Max nicked off with Toby's pepper!

So yeah, Max and Toby have been in this world 5 years. It's hard to believe! I keep thinking Max is getting fatter and Toby is getting skinnier, but when I weigh them, they're still about the same. Funny little pigs.
Unfortunately, my mum didn't get gifts in the post soon enough, so new treats will have to wait for Christmas. Although, when they get here, I will probably open them, because I can't wait!

Aw! See, Max? No one is going to eat you, they want to feed you.

Happy birthday boys.

My heart hurts.

For those of you who don't venture into the medical threads, Toby has passed away. He just wasn't right. He had a crusty eye, was losing a little weight and drinking more water. I took him to the vet and she wanted x-rays to check his teeth. What she found was a large mass in his throat. He was in generally good health so I agreed to try to remove it rather than just put him to sleep. They removed the tumour successfully, but Toby died while they were closing.

Sleep well, Tobias John. You are loved. You will be missed.

We've buried him next to Sid, Truffle, and Maise.

When he and Max first came to us; our little pixie pig.

Max is living alone now. He seems to be okay. I will be weighing just to make sure. As we are waiting to move, we won't be adopting a new friend for Max. We just have to keep bothering him so he doesn't get lonely. After the move, we will be able to look forward again.
