Loved it, Momo. I'll echo everybody else and say that you need to write a book! You have a way with words that makes your stories so entertaining. And of course, your pictures are always fun! I've always wondered, do you draw those cartoons yourself, or do you find them somewhere?

Love, love, love it. MORE, PLEASE!

More, more, Momo! We love your stories. Ellie, who's 10, prints them out and reads them to the girls. She thinks the guinea pigs are very cute...and Momo and Ben look pretty cute together, too (even though they're not furry and chubby like the rest of the family).

McMac definitely needs to up the speed on his munching if he's to get more treats before Beibei takes them all! hehee =)p

Momo - I sent the video to my sister and she remembers you. We will have to do that again when I visit.

Wonderful episode! I loved looking at all the pictures again and reminiscing about Meimeis' diva-ness.

Momo, Gram went on vacation and worried about how you were the whole time. We've been in a fog waiting for you to go back to GL with more awesome stories. Hooray! No more fog and no more crabby Gram because she gets crabby when she's all blotchy.

P.S. She reads me your stories.

Thank you all, it is so nice to be back here and among friends again. :)
I kept myself quite busy while I was away too.
I cut my hair, I started a recipe box, I redid the cage and snapped at all pigs and humans in the house - Ben will tell you all about it!

I truly enjoyed writing up this episode when I was sick that week, then Meimei got sick the very next day and I was busy fussing over her that I didn't get to post this in time.
Looking back these past 2 and half years, my piggies and I have shared so much; they are an integral part of our dysfunctional family life.
The only way to make it better was to share it with my friends, which I so gladly did. :)

I had to put it up, as a present for myself, to see Meimei's bubbly pictures and attitude towards life again, this is the way I would like our friends to remember her by.

Here is something on the side, it is about Beibei.
She has been getting foot spurs on both of her front paws for many months now, but I noticed it has gotten worse (the speed of growth) this past month.
The reason it is getting to me is that she now chews on it, and she once actually chewed it open and started to bleed a little.
I check it weekly, and soak in some warm chlorohexeim and trim it off with a nail clipper when needed.

Is there something I can do to slow it down?
She is housed in fleece, but uses Carefresh in her haybin.
I always worry I am going to nick her when I trim the spurs off.

I hope you all enjoyed our little tricks; McMac proves he may be a senior citizen, but he still got the brains and the looks of a star.

Poor BeiBei. Her future as a hand model may be in jeopardy.

Aaw, poor Beibei-bean.

You go, McMac!!

Oh Beibei! Caramel wants to share her story about her spurs too. I think some pigs are just prone to spurs no matter what. Maybe they came with age? How old is Beibei? Caramel is 6 yrs old and it's only been in the past few months that she started developing spurs too.

Tammy, how do you go about her spurs?
Beibei is only 3 years old at the most...
But she has had the for almost a year already, but not at this speed of growth, and it was only on one of her front paw before...

I worry I am going to cut her when I trim those bits off, I also worry that she is going to chew her little footsie open and get infected.
It scared Ben when he saw bloody paw prints in her cage last week!

My pigs used to get that before I moved them into a bigger cage with a nice big ramp, but I might be describing something different. Beibei's hand looks like mine did, but mine weren't as bad as that. Maybe they grow from inactivity? I thing they are like callouses and they just need to be worn down.

As clean as your cages are, I doubt Beibei will be too dreadfully prone to infection. Just keep an eye on her. The chlorhex soaks sound like a great idea and if worst comes to worst, you bandage it. HOpe it doesn't come to that though.

I think what you're doing is the best course (clipping occasionally). If it is any consolation, Snowflake had spurs and later had fewer or no spurs so this may not be a problem all her life. General watching for infection and soaking if they bleed is a good idea.

You can use Kwik-Stop, the powder that stops bleeding from nail trimming if you like. I do that for myself when I cut myself when prepping food with a knife.

I just clip off as much of the spur as I can. Caramel doesn't mind. Since you bed on fleece and change frequently, I wouldn't really worry too much if she's going to get infected. But the soak is a good idea.

Just went to check on Caramel and didn't find spurs. I guess they come and go?

Maybe she wants to be a cowgirl? You know--spurs that jingle jangle jingle... sorry, had to toss that in!

Hope that BeiBei and Caramel both do well!

Great to see you again Momo. Loved the story and video. So sweet. What a great way to remember Meimei.

I wish I had video capabilities.
