Thanks! Yep, Aiko was almost just 2 pounds / 899 g at the age of 4 months. She's as tall as Yiyi and Plucky already size wise.

Took some pics!

Plucky's first action was to bump the bear upside down, complaining strongly about what he was doing there!

Yuyu is the easiest model for a photo shoot. She just lets it all happen.

Image


Yiyi decided to turn the entire setting from left to right. Oh, well, works too.

Image


Aiko was in heat and her interest in bear was initially a bit too strong from his part, but as soon as she found out he wasn't a piggie, she just waited for her treat to arrive. Bear got dumped on his first date!

Beautiful indeed!

Also, the last pic looks like a possible calendar contender, if you're at all interested in submitting it to the calendar possibilities folder for next year!

Thanks!

Lately, I saw several people who had Mel Chan doll beds for their pigs and they seemed to enjoy it. I had Ikea doll beds for them several years ago, but they were a bit high, even after cutting a bit off the legs, and got chewed till they became too dangerous to use. The bed bottom was made from pressed wood, which also crumbled fast. The pigs only preferred to sit under them, same with the small dog bed I bought for them. This one rusted so fast, I had to throw it out after a few uses.

The new beds are made from a sturdy non chewable plastic, only the bed bottom had to be altered, as a piece of cardboard over 2 supports is not strong enough and not pee proof. I had some leftover piece of vetbed, so that was cut to fit. I have enough vetbed to replace daily for a week.

As soon as the beds were placed, the pigs did not use them, only after putting vegs on top lured them into getting on the beds. I moved the beds under a hanging piece of fleece and then they became occupied instantly. So, very pleased with the beds.

Plucky snoozing blissfully.

Aiko looking cute.

Yuyu shocked by the privacy invasion.

Thanks!

Yiyi likes the beds too!

I have now officially run out of ideas for now, after 11 years of coming up with stuff, lol.

I have 2 ideas left, but those require a 3D printer. Although these can finally print using the type of plastic which is chew proof for pigs, the process is till too expensive. If I go to a 3D shop, my design is up for grabs, plus it's too expensive. If I buy one myself, it's still too expensive and the cartridges cost a lot. So, I will have to wait a few years till prizes drop.

We had a nice refund of our annual gas and electricity bill, so the pigs shared that one! I found 4 new items for them on 50% sales, because the boxes were damaged.

This is one of them, first used for a photo shoot, as I could not resist. When I put it in use in the cage, a comfy pad will be put in it, of course. It has 2 entrances at the back. It was a pain to dismantle, took 3 hours, wew!!

"Ground control to major Pig!" stated Yuyu and Plucky.

Yiyi "Aldrin" and "Buzz" Aiko went for a space walk.
