UPDATE - All Good News Currently.

Char and her brother Bailey get along great. They love to sleep nose to nose or sometimes he gets into his hay box when he wants time alone. That's the container he brought when he moved to Char's cage.

The trio of girls have been doing ok. They keep MrTex up at night though with their girlish squabbles Since Mikly left us. I have been planning to adopt another male for them since December. Yet twice the weather interfered with my trip to Lewisville and once it was my eye which I had surgery on recently. I am happy that they adopted so many during those days I missed. Though when I finally got ready to look again for boys they had no singles listed. So I went on Google and Craig's list.

I found a few possible, and was about to go to bed and call folks next morning. Then I did one more search and found a really needy pig in Temple Texas at a dog/cat shelter. A call went out for help getting him to a foster home till I come back through the area on March 8th after a trip already planned and half paid for. We got both donations and help getting him out of there. Windespirit drove down and got him and is fostering him till I get him for which I am very thankful.

The new guy's Trio of gals to be.

The new guy was called Piggy in the dog rescue. So I went searching for the perfect name for him. I Had always imagined that IF I ever got another orange pig it would look like Reuben, my avatar pig, minus ridge. But this guy was orange and fluffy, So the Sherbert from Sherbet name I had saved seemed not quite right. I looked at all sorts of of things from our current theme that we just happened on after Foster Pig failed to remain just a Foster. Finally settled on this:

Pronounced a lot like Rodent minus the T,
but even more stress is on the first syllable.

Thanks y'all.
I just realized I forgot to say he's Roden for short.
ANd I look forward to trying his namesake someday.
Never had a Chimay until I named a piggy after it. Now I have to try Rodenbach.

ALso I forgot to say the Rescue in Lewsiville. I must have been really Drowsy when I posted all of that. Many of you know but new folks may not that nearly all of my other rescues came from Texas Rustlers Guinea Pig Rescue in Lewisville, Texas. Their link is here: http://theguineapigrescue.com/

Or maybe Rodan?

As in scary creature in Japanese horror flick (a giant pteranodon kaiju created by Toho Studios)?

He's gonna think he's a Rodan from his 'tude I saw in the vids that Windespirit made.
He's a charmer but really confident. :)

Roden is home. We got in Saturday. He's a super fluffy cuddly sweetiepie and weighs just over 3 pounds.
His neuter is scheduled for Wednesday.
Please think good thoughts even though neuters are routine at City Vet with Dr. Effie.
By the way, Lynx, to avoid confusion I told the vet his name is spelled Rodan. :)
