(And I didn't come up with the dancing carrots! That was Clairey! Although I totally stole it and used it on Facebook.)

"You took my sub-pig away from me. And I'm not blind and I can see through the divider that she's getting snacks you're not giving me. So don't even start."
Image

(Side note: as I was photographing this, my husband wandered into the room. I got home late last night and he had already changed the pigs' water and fed them dinner. He said, "Yeah, I saw that, but I didn't clean it up because I thought you might want to discipline him.")

How do you discipline a guinea pig? Poor little Snickers!

Who knows? My husband has some odd ideas. I mean, I guess my blowing on Albert or tapping his nose when he's chewing is discipline. But what was I going to do here, other than docilely clean up after his fun?

During the cleaning, he popcorned like crazy. I was reading it as a "Ha ha, I made you do extra cleaning!" kind of popcorn.

That sounds like an accurate interpretation of the popcorn in question :-)

Poor Snickers! Glad Ouiser is feeling better, although Snickers doesn't seem all that happy with the current arrangement.

I wish I could edit this as a little movie.

We'd zoom in on Snickers, dozing sleepily in his soft bed, while lullaby or classical music played in the background.

Image

...and then we'd pan right to Ouiser, crouched in readiness, leaning on a folded cup, wearing a helmet and peering through binoculars, on the lookout for potential eagles. In the background, the swelling pre-battle montage music from some brave WWII movie -- something with lots of drums.

Sounds like you need Brambles to come visit you.

It's a movie I'd watch :-)

Folding the OTHER cup. You're out of commission for a day or two, EVERYTHING goes to weeds.

Poor Ouiser, recovering and trying to keep the house in order! This is why boys should never be left to themselves. Yes, I'm talking to you Snick!

Great to see that Ouiser is well enough to be folding the cuddle cups. Normal behaviour, checked.

A short digression to visit some other awesome animals...

[insert Scoobie-Doo transition noise here]

You may recall from other portions of GuineaLynx that SlaveToFuzzy has a big, big, fuzzy FUZZY dog named Walter.

Here is Walter, rather less fuzzy than he sometimes is.
Image

STF also has a pig named Indiana who caused her some grief because he was DETERMINED to be free. Eventually STF decided to just let him have his way, and he is now in charge of the general maintenance of the floor of STF's pig room, where he free-ranges in the company of his able assistant Marion.

Here are Indy and Marion.
Image

This particular story involves STF's having her house cleaned, which involved scary scary vacuuming. Walter took refuge in the pig room, where logic would indicate that nothing too scary could happen. But he hadn't reckoned on Marion.

Here is Marion discovering a really big furry animal in her space.
Image

Obviously, Marion did what any well-adjusted, self-confident sow would do in her situation: started barbering.
Image

STF says that Walter "wasn't sure how he felt about the barbering. He kept looking at me for guidance!"

I love Walter. He looks and sounds to be such a big softy.

It's Walter!! I love me some Walter. When we can finally get a dog, a Newfie is in the running, for sure.

I love Walter. When we pulled up to STF's driveway, Walter was standing there waiting. My husband said something along the lines of "holy crap, he's huge. He should move so I can get in the driveway."
That's paraphrased, of course. Walter liked my daughter.
