I used to give my girls plastic spoons to toss about.

My little boy will make that noise sometimes when I'm giving him chin-scritches. Knowing him, I always thought he was telling me off.

More Bobbins vids, please. Bobbins is the best.

I did wonder if Bobs was telling me off at first but he leans into my fingers and sometimes just totally flops down, so I figure he just has a loud purr.

Stephen demonstrates how it should be done: http://youtu.be/AI0AO8KMM7A

Stephen's little squishy middle-aged side belly is one of my favourite things about him. There's just the right amount of it and it's great for a snuzzle.

Oh, Bobs! Love him and his smartness. :) My Marion loves chinnies too and will make that noise. Her eyes close and you can tell she's in pure Heaven!

Stephen's face is so adorable. I love his lips! :)

Is Stephen a ridgeback pig?

And are those apple pieces??? Apple pieces = piggy crack at my house.

Yes and yes! :) As you can see, it's crack here too. I use high value foods with the toy to keep them interested. I'm pretty sure they'd not be so keen to work for carrot or green pepper.

For some reason Stephen has been harrassing Robert for the past 2 days. Nothing major (not even any teeth chattering) but Robert's whines about it are LOUD. I suspect Robert has been getting too big for his boots and not giving Stephen the respect due to a king.

This coincides with me practising some tough love on Robert. His opportunistic food-wheeking and begging at the side of the cage were getting ridiculous. The bright little button has noticed patterns in my behaviour relative to treat-giving that he's keen to exploit to the max.

Poor Bobs is not having a good day.

You just send him over here. I'll give him treats.

Poor Bobbins. Has he called the piggy abuse hotline yet?

No, I'm keeping my phone out of his reach.

Even though I don't like the two of them bickering, it is quite amusing. I've been watching out of the corner of my eye and to me it looks like Stephen is rumblestrutting Robert into submission on a fairly random basis to prove a point.

"BRRRR That's my bed. I'm the boss, I'd like that bed."
"*whine* But I was here first and I'm all comfy and cosy and it's not fair! It's just not fair! No!"
"Brrrr!" *waggle*
"Oh for goodness sake!"
Bobs moves off the bed, whining all the way. Stephen scent marks it, popcorns and goes back to the haybin with a spring in his step. He never wanted the bed.

Eeep! I just witnessed actual snuggling. Lying side by side, top and tail touching.

I tried to get a pic but I startled Bobs and he legged it away. :(

I once more bow to Stephen's wisdom. It seems a little discipline brings the team together.
