Since Robert's New Year bath, a strangeness has come over him. His hair is growing down the way with minimal up-sticking!
(His head is to the left!)
Who would have thought? I prefer him with short crazy hair - as well as suiting his character better it's much more fun to pet - but it's keeping him extra cosy for now. He's like a little hot water bottle.
His pretty kissy face.
Robert . . . . LIPS! Swoon!
Apart from that gorgeous hunk'o'piggy portrait photo, I had to look twice when I landed on the thread. I thought, 'why has clairey got a little dog'?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I honestly did think that!
And too many funnies . . . Haha! If that is Robert with minimal up-sticky hair, ok . . . Side on, then look from the front! He is wild (and hot water-bottly to boot)!!!
And have you booked his place at uni yet? He is so clever, I always thought he would be though!!!
You made my day, clairey! And Robs!!
I really want a Robert :)
I've never been sure if he was clever or if I maybe just do things in a similar way to his old human or something but it does seem he learns really quickly (in piggy terms anyway!).
You can visit Robert but he's going nowhere!
Ibepatience - I mistake his bum for his face at least once a day even now. I blame his white rump stripe. In photos it's even harder to know one end from t'other!
His pink lips were the final nail in my coffin. I was trying to do a pro and con list in my head when deciding to adopt him (the con list was the longest), then I saw his pink lips and it was a done deal.
Edited to add - Robert is steadily gaining on Stephen. He weighed in at 1200g last night (he was 950g at his lowest), Stephen averages 1275g. I'm sure Robert's grown a little too. He's longer and a bit taller than Stephen now and Stephen is fairly big.
"Hi! Are you bringing treats? You've come over to bring treats, haven't you? I like treats. Where are the treats?"
*sigh* No, Robert, no treats.
"No treats? Ha, I know you're only teasing. I'm your Bobbins, your Bobble. I am Bobsicle! And I'm really cute! Cute needs treats."
Stephen - "Hang on, did he say treats? Did he get treats? Do I get treats?"
Robert - Mwahaha! She can never resist it when you get involved.
And lo, there were treats.
