Right after the video, I discovered a very hidden wad of dried boar glue in Smokey's behiney hair. I had to keep him out, alone, which is a little bit of a big deal since he's a little shy.
I carefully cut it out. He thought he should get to keep the wad of hair, but I thought it was a better idea to throw it away.
You know, I think he's still peeved with me. For the haircut and for throwing away the wad. Even in his picture on my desk he looks irritated now. Boars definitely have strange ideas about things.
I guess with Louie doing some barbering, me doing some barbering too is just too much!
Louie is standing in the hay, which has been trampled all over the floor.
Me: What are you doing, darling? Who trampled that nice hay all over the floor?
Louie: - Looks guilty-
Me: Did you do it? You're so naughty.
Me: So naughty, my pig.
Me: You're so funny. Silly, naughty, piggy!
Louie: *popcorn* *sideways popcorn*
So from that I take it to mean that one pop means yes, and two pops mean absolutely. All the other piggies were still asleep, so they couldn't comment! Do your pigs pop when you talk to them?
Sweet Smokey went first.

Snickers showed off one of his good sides. :)

I couldn't decide on just one of Louie, but narrowed it down to three...

...and I barely got one of MoonPie. He's so silly.

I'm thankful for my boys!!!
Now we haven't seen the calendar yet in person, we have to order ours. But we are so excited, and can't wait for payday to be closer so we can order ours! We can't wait to see what month we are!
The boys feel very famous. Snickers and MoonPie are getting extra lovies so they don't mind.
I will have to remind them all that pictures in the calendar are a possibility, so maybe they will want to sit still for their Christmas photos, ha ha. I doubt that will work. Usually only cilantro works. Or oat hay.
But we're so excited! The boys are full of squeaks and hops! They are both going to take a nibble out of the calendar page to autograph it for me, they promised.
Yay! A round of carrots on me!
I had my coffee break, and was thinking, and came up with the boys' song for winter... a takeoff on Frosty, if you will. It's kind of silly, but I can't help it.
My Winter Boars Song
Snickers the pig-wig, was a silly happy soul, With one white foot and a two-tone nose and two eyes as black as coal...
Louie the pig-wig, was a jolly happy soul, with a choco-spot and a bright pink nose and blue eyes as dark as coal...
Smokey the pig-wig, was a shy and happy soul, with long bright hair and a Roman nose and brown eyes as dark as coal...
MoonPie the pig-wig, was a nippy happy soul, with a shiny butt and a fuzzy nose and a coat as black as coal...
These little pig-gies, are as sweet as they can be,
They can eat and play and wheek every day and I'm glad they live with me!
My feelings on the holidays switch from "Yay! Christmas! Let's decorate everything that doesn't move and celebrate!" to "Let's call the whole thing off and sleep through it." The switch happens randomly, without much warning. Anyone else have this problem?
Fortunately, piggie love is constant and reciprocated. Just looking at Louie, especially when he walks, always makes me smile. And MoonPie, when he's not trying to take a bite of something, is so pretty.
They'd like some parsley garland, I'm sure. Or at least some cilantro swags. I'll have to hang some up so they can enjoy pulling it all down... fa la la la *crunch*

Louie and Smokey also got new things, a new sleeping pad each, (Louie already peed on his) in purple also. Here they are eating substitute hay.

Everyone's big gift arrives or ships, I can't remember which, on the 13th -- 3rd cut timothy hay from Kleenmama.
He has an abcess that has been treated once, but has returned. This time, they will do a procedure where they implant a ball of antibiotics in his jaw to combat his illness. He's such a sweet baby, and his family just adores him. If you haven't seen him, his picture can be found on page 3 of this chronicle - the Easter picture and a Christmas picture.
I so want the procedure to be a success so he won't have any more pain and won't need any more procedures. Please remember him, especially on Friday, when the procedure will be done. He will have to be put under for it, and you all well know those risks.
