I never started a new chronicle with Puzzle--things were so bad here and he was so sick most of the time. I think somehow I knew I wouldn't have him long. But now he, Perpetua and Pepsi have their own thread. To see threads on my first three pigs click here:

My beloved Pippin died August 14, 2008. He was supposedly over six years old. He had to be at least five and a quarter years old because I had had him that long.
This was his "baby" picture:

This was JodiMN's version. He still needs cowboy boots, Jodi ;)

Pippin died on my birthday. I was out of town for my cousin's wedding. I didn't want to go. That cousin is now divorced. A side note: the divorce happened because new hub got another woman pregnant.
Pippin had had recurring tooth problems for the past ten months: http://www.guinealynx.info/forums/viewtopic.php?t=35237&post ... ppin&start=0
He eventually died when his GI tract and the rest of his body shut down. Necropsy, however, showed no trace of tooth/jaw infection.

Aw Pippin :( Seem that piggies called Pippin are very special to their owners. I'm going to get my Pip's paw-print tattooed on me soon.

Sorry to hear he passed on your birthday which you couldn't be home for because of a doomed to fail marriage (my best wishes to your cousin - good riddance I say!).

Yeah, Pippin was his birth name. For almost two years he was Thunder, because it went with Lightning, but when Lightning died I went back to the original.

I sometimes still refer to him as Pippin/Thunder. I think it was JodiMN who suggested I call him Pip T, kind of like a rapper....

This was Pippin in the Pets of Alexandria Calendar. I think it was 2005:

Here is another display of JodiMN's skills:

Thanks for sharing with us, Janedoe.

Brainerror, how did you get a pawprint of Pip? I wish I could do that for Puffy on me!

Four years ago today I adopted a beautiful baby girl from the Montgomery County shelter. Poor Perpetua lost two mates in less than one year and has been neglected as a result of their problems, but I am trying to make it up to her. Happy Anniversary , Baby!

Thanks everyone. Both girls got blessed at the Congregational Church yesterday. It was Pepsi's first blessing and Perpetua's fifth, at least. I think she and Pandora were also blessed at the Episcopal church.
Pepsi's little feet are so cute, like Pippin's. They look like little gloves.

About a week after Pippin died, roughly August 21 or 22, 2008, two VERY pregnant sows came to the Montgomery County shelter. One of them, "Tomato," was so malnourished you could see her bare skin through her fur. Last time I saw her she looked MUCH better ):

Within the next few days she and her cagemate, "Beet," gave birth to six babies between them. Some were teddies, some had crests. As I don't know much about piggy genetics, I'm not sure whose were whose or what their dads looked like.

Sounds like a nice thing to have the pigs blessed.

It is. I try to do it every year. Unfortunately, for the last two years I haven't been able to do it at the Episcopal Church because of work.

Puzzle would have been two today and Perpetua is scheduled for surgery tomorrow. Not a good day.

But on the brighter side, there are pictures of Pepsi on both my
Facebook pages and all four of my Twitter pages.

The emergency vet's office called yesterday to say Perpetua's cremains were ready to be picked up. Boo

Finally got Perpetua's cremains. I can't believe my beautiful baby girl is dead.
