It's beginning to be a tradition now... Sunday night supper is two corn on the cobs for me, and silks and husks for the piggywigs - in addition to their regular dinner. It's their appetizer. We've had this combo together for the past month now, and are really enjoying it.

Dollar tree is a great place to get fluffy beds for them, I visit them Sunday afternoons sometimes, and look in the car care section. They have the softest small blankets there. I always wash them first, and the boys love them. Last night, their tummies were full, and they had new blankies, and I didn't hear a peep out of them as I was going to sleep. Super-sweet content piggies.

Saw some wheatgrass in the store Sunday, and couldn't resist it, so tonight, we had a little party. The pictures and the video say it best. :)

Attack of the piggies!

Not so blurry... looking calm.

You can see that Louie has calmed down a bit -either that or lost some of his appetite for hair- because Smokey's pretty mane is growing back.

Your boars are all so handsome. Lovely to see them enjoying the wheat grass. That's always a big hit with my girls as well.

Wish I was at home with my sweet little pigs today. Snickers and Moonpie are the best at cuddling, even if Moonpie is the worst about peeing -- he once was all stretched out and took a giant pee right in my hair. Didn't even give me any signs, no pulling at the blanket, no peepee dance, no nothing.

Still wish I was at home cuddling with them, feeding them nibbles and listening to their little noises close to my ears.

I don't blame you. They are such beatiful boys.

Checking in! Last week I had to treat for fleas, yuck! So I put everyone in another room, in an empty 2 x 2 to hang out with a mountain of hay in the center and assorted scattered baby carrots.

They've had time outside before, together, in a smaller enclosure, so I figured they'd be OK. I checked on them a few times, and all seemed well. When I came back for them, to take them to their freshly cleaned homes, Louie, Snickers, and Smokey were all lined up against one side, the hay mountain was demolished, and MoonPie was standing against the opposite wall, saying, "I am the BOSS of EVERYBODY!"

He's kind of a turkey. I don't think anyone else really cared. They were like, "you can be the boss of this house. Heck, you can HAVE it. The hay's all eaten or peed on anyway."

They made a huge mess in the 2 x 2 (which I have yet to clean up).

They are all doing pretty well. MoonPie is trying to set a new record for water drinking, and Louie has decided the best way to keep a paper towel roll from rolling is to get mad at it and hop over it. So silly my pig. :)

Disclaimer: I have been a fan of Piggywig for years, before she joined GL. I looked on her as a kind of Obi Wan Kenobe. But without the beard

I haven't been around in a while, but that's because of the high pressure and time-consuming nature of the new job I started at the beginning of September. I just don't have time at work to come by, and at night, I am wiped out. Last Saturday I slept about 18 hours. But, Friday night, I was in a fall mood. We've had a few cool days here. They made me think of fall, and Halloween.

I liked last year's Halloween pictures a lot, but Louie doesn't have one, of course. So, I decided he needed one, and everyone else got to rest on their cute laurels and just have last year's photo. I put the four into a collage 8 by 10 and picked it up today. I'm going to take it and put it on my desk Monday.

Didn't have the same background blanket any more -- I think I had it, well, I won't go into what happened to it, it is kind of a sad story. But, I had a black background, and I think it worked. Vive la difference, right? I'm hoping to come around more often. Soon.

Here's Louie's photo from Friday - he looks like he might have a tiny smile - and the boys' from last year.

Here is my Count Smokeula

I wondered if Lynx would be interested in Count Smokeula for the calendar? I know she doesn't often use piggies in costumes.

I already have an idea for Thanksgiving photos; it's just up to the boys if they want to cooperate. No hats are involved. So far.

I love your photos! I think I may have all the month photos but still need a couple right facing cover photos (with neutral background) and some credits photos (where anything goes - yours would be great there!!).

I'm not sure which ones would be appropriate... if you have any that you like, message me!

Time for fall... time for piggie kisses and autumn leaves.

Lovely photos of some very cute pigs. The fall colours do make a very pretty backdrop for your pigs.

Well, I have news, Louie is a chirper. He let me know this by calling for the Mother Ship at around 2:30 or 3:00 am the other morning.

Very loud chirping. He is quite the vocalist. He didn't stop until I got up and went to him to make sure he was OK. I patted him and talked to him, and he stopped.

I guess human interference stops all communication with the Mother Ship!

My little men had their Halloween party last night. Probably not their last! But we had a little get-together. I did not bring enough refreshments. Mom fail. But they got lots of goodies after the camera was off. They enjoyed chewing on the plastic pumpkins until then.

I took a photo of them all together, the only one I have where everyone is looking at the camera, but because of the lighting and because Snick and Moon had to move their little heads (naturally), they look like they have no eyes. It freaks me out a little.

A friend with photoshop might be able to fix it for me... until then, here is video where everyone's eyes are visible. :)

Hope it helps you get into the spirit! Have a wonderful day!
