Milkyway is the pink eyed white boar who had a journey through hell before arriving at the TX Rustlers Guinea pig Rescue. www.theguinapigrescue.com
He came in with the worst painful back abcess they have ever seen and still he persits in having a fun, colorful personality.
Here he is after surgery.
Here he is before:
WARNING : GRAPHIC
More detail on that in original thread:
And here he is now:
Kissing his Mistress Guinness, who lives next door to his harem of girls.
Mikly got his nickname from a typing error I made in the title of his introduction thread.
Funny oops and cute nickname arises - heheh
Soon a recap on the Harem and the rest of the TexCavy clan.
One more thing an announcement on the winner of the photo caption contest for the Following photo coming even sooner. Last chance to enter a caption, but remember all I can award one is the glory and having your caption on the pic when I post it on facebook.

Lynx - Follicular Cyst, I believe is what type it is. Found the link to the article:
His original one just burst or got chewed open and became infected with bacteria. They said it smelled horrid and was the worst abscess they had seen.
He has at least two more lumps growing; one on his back and one near the shoulders. If they never get very large he will be fortunate and not have to go to any more surgery. But I keep an eye on them to see how they are progressing all the time. At least they are not open like that one and therefor not infected and they are noncancerous.
He's been with us nearly three years.
And we don't know how old he was before.
At least he's still acting pretty spry for a white guy. ;)

And then possibly more in foster care. I am really unsure.
But they have been there like forever and really need to have a home.
Here are some more pics I got two weeks ago:
I have full size version for anyone who wants to see them.
And the next two kind of show the way the fur looks.
But you really have to see them in person to see the sparseness of the fur.
I hope you don't mind that I paraphrased you a tad,
but I loved your idea for the caption Anita.
It was one of the one's you put on the other thread.
Sometime Tomorrow I will posting to facebook.
Feel free to steal and share everyone. Piggy pics are too awesome to not be free for anyone's use. As long as they are sharing them in love and not in some sort of bad way. :)
oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Milky's horrific past....I know he's made a full and great recovery, but that picture really haunts me, I just can't imagine something so small going through something that big :'(
thank you for helping him
He's a spoiled little guy though. :)
I meant to say that I enjoyed all the captions everyone wrote.
Might do that again but hopefully I can find different types of pictures and stuff. Maybe take some new ones.
