Dear Claire, oh! :'( I'm so...so so sorry! :( I feel so sad. Poppy and Dusty have become an item together. I always love spotting who's who...I just feel so bad for you, especially that you weren't there. I'm really going to miss her, give us a wheek from the rainbow bridge Dusty :(

I'm very sorry that Dusty is gone. She was so cute and photogenic, and had a very expressive face. My heart goes out to you.

Looks at all these pictures, what a sweet face and wonderful little pig.
I am so sorry, I know how much you will miss her silly face, the innocent eyes and the way she loves on you.

We have all come to see them as a pair Poppy and Dusty, wishing Poppy well wishes and hope she is doing okay without her best friend...

poppycorn, I am so sorry,...

Fluffy and Snowy send some piggie cuddles to you and Poppy. We're so sorry for your loss :(

Thank you everyone. I also want to say to Mildred how sorry I am and I hope that you and Ian have found comfort in Fairy, as I have in Popcorn. It's hard and painful and boy does it suck a whole lot but cuddles help - cuddles always help. <3

Today we got Poppy and Thumper home; they'd been staying with some friends while we were away and Dusty was unfortunately with them when she passed away, so I never really got to say goodbye.

I'm so, so glad to have her home and I'm going to be keeping a very, very close eye on her. I've missed her so, so much!

Cuddles always help. :-)

I hope everyone is having a good week - many wheeks, cuddles and hay for you all! <3 thank you.

Again, thank you all. You are all extraordinarily kind!!

I haven't talked about this chap for a while...
Image

For those of you interested, he's now nearly two and a half years old! Him and Dusty got along famously and often shared snuffles and nose-kisses. (Poppy is just terrified of this big loloping giant who careers towards them. Dusty, on the other hand, thought that she was as big as him - of course (she was getting there, chunky girl!))
Image

Popcorn is doing okay. I mean, she's doing better than yesterday. She's very skinny and I think she's lacking in vit C (she's not had enough veggies whilst we were away *glowers a little*) and she hasn't been eating much since Dusty passed. BUT, like I said... she's doing better. :-)
Image

With the lovely help of Momo's advice and kindness, I'm going to vary her food and get some samples of different pellets this weekend (any suggestions? They might not have them but I can try the internet too.) to encourage more of this:
Image

Urm, food? Please!
Image

Much better.
Image
(You can practically hear here wolfing it down!)

I don't know if I ever shared this, but this is the treat jar I bought/made. ^_^
Image

This shy little girl is taking away my hurts. I hope you all have had a nice day (and better weather than me!) *listens to rain drumming on roof.*
Image

For anyone getting exam results tomorrow or soon - good luck. I pick up mine tomorrow morning. *gulps*

Thank you all again, Poppy and Claire. <3

My dear Poppy, you are looking very cute and beautiful today.
Love the snuggling picture with your mama, she is so worried about you!
Love the treat jar, every piggy should have one!

Good luck with your exam results, I know you will do just fine! <3

Good luck for tomorrow, A'Level results can be super daunting. I remember mine very well. I'll be thinking of you :)

Who is that handsome devil of a spaniel? Don't tell me where you live as I'd be hatching a plan to pinch him. He's beautiful!

And popcorn - I think I've just cheated on my 2 girls by falling in love with her. She's gorgeous!

Hello Popcorn. She's such a gorgeous pig and best wishes on helping her gain some weight. Love what you did with the treat bottle, really creative.

Uh... eh. What the heck, Mama?!
Image

You woke me up?! WHY?! I was sleeping. And dreaming. Of broccoli. And Momo's Bernie. Why would you even think to interrupt that?!
Image

I demand nomnoms now. And fast, hooman, fast!
Image

You'd think she'd appreciate the food I was bringing her... *sigh*
