Oh those boys! It's just part of who they are, not rude or anything!!!

Glad all is ok with Ernie, he looks so cheeky getting weighed up on the scales!

I love piggie bums, whether they are hairless or they have hair, so post more bums!

Well I should've known that no one on here would care. I don't see the big deal either, I am so use to their naked bums that it doesn't faze me. People on my Facebook page must have too innocent of eyes lol.

Aw, the heart is adorable, but that is just silly that people freak out. LOL! They need to get a grip or just not look!

Rugby had such a sweet face. Glad Ernie is back up in weight today.

Haha yes, you're right. People should get a grip!! :)

Rugby had an adorable face, he was really a special bossy brat!

I am glad as well about Ernie. He had me scared for a bit.
Currently he is getting foot treatments with the FM ointment that just arrived from Gorgeous Guineas. He was having dry flakey feet, kind of red too. I think those are on the mend now for sure.

I love the GG foot treatment, we are using Perfect Paws on Pixie's feet at the moment.

'Get a grip', I'd forgotten about that term! It's wonderful :)

I've made a video on how I clip my piggies nails and how I weigh them.
Ernie is my model and actually did quite well.
He is always a bit jumpy for nails and loves to squeak even when I've done nothing wrong.
Watch the video if you'd like :)

Ernie is a sweet boy. He has calmed so much as he has gotten older, still hyper but calmed when sitting with me.

I picked up some Raspberries today! They are my absolute favourite fruit. I'd even go as far to say fav food, something I'd eat everyday if they weren't so expensive.

I offered a raspberry to eat piggy, everyone turned up their nose, except Barnaby.
I knew he was my baby, we have the same taste :)
He gobbled a couple right down!!

Barnaby is my piggy, he and I have such a bond. He makes my heart melt and just looking at his lil face, I can't help but smile. I am so thankful everyday that he made it through his surgery back in March.

I love it when they take the first *sniff* and little exploratory nibble of a new food. You can just see the sensory processing taking place behind those shiny black eyes: "Is this food? Something good to eat? Maybe... a little sour, but okay... yes!"

I love raspberries, too: on Kashi cereal with vanilla rice milk! I wish they were more affordable, too, and they even grow wild up here. Just never in large patches like the blueberries.

Oops...Here is Grover. My littlest piggy at 970 grams.
He is going to be 3 years old in August!
Grover is my tidy pig. He likes to poop and pee in 2 different spots. It makes spot cleaning a breeze but gives me the challenge of keeping the spot near his hay dry. I have to change a pad there daily.
Grover likes to drink the most water as well. In 12 hours he can finish a bottle of water, 16oz.

Hello, Grover! I thought for a second you'd sprouted a TAIL :)

Snorfles on the way to you !
