Oh poor Robert, don't worry many of us would just love to help find your eyes, with some scritches in between, and a cuddle or two.

Here they are!

Fortunately, my landlady found them in Anchorage, and they are now watching over the red kitty on my stove.

You'll have to ship Bobbins over here to retrieve them.

*giggles* They really do look like them.

Spring has finally sprung and Robert's due for a spa day in the next week, so his hair will be coming off. My BF is horrified and thinks I'm going to make Bobs look a mess. To be fair, I probably am. :)

Bobs would be difficult to groom if he held perfectly still. Somehow I don't think that's going to happen.

I have a cunning podium arrangement which means he has no option but to stand still. Mwahaha!

Oh, I mean, I don't want to curse you or anything, but: I don't think pigs go along well with "no option." I've said things like "no option" about burrowing... removing hayracks from walls... getting IN to hayracks... and I've been proven wrong time and again.

You are definitely trying to curse me! He's dealt with it every 4-5 weeks for 6 months and if he decides there's an option this time it will be all your fault!

Maddy: For Stephen, imagine an orangey-brown pig with a little bit of a ridge on his back. He is dignified and looks like he'd be a bit embarrassed by a good round of kissing... but he would also enjoy it.

For Robert, imagine a little explosion of black fur. He has white markings but mostly "explosion" is the defining word!

Alden, you hit it spot on with that description! Now we just need to get Clairey to send the boys stateside for a grand tour to meet all their GL aunties. =)

Perfect descriptions!

I can't stop laughing. I knew it was never going to be a pretty look but poor, poor Bobs. *laughs again* I'll let the photos tell the story.

His head is at the top of the pic.

I love this photo - you can see an eye and teefs if you peer.

Then this happened:

Which resulted in this:

Poor Bobbins. *stifles another giggle* I got forgiven by producing little morsels of clementine with dinner.

Ahahahahaha!

Okay, Maddy, now imagine a little black puff with an indignant face and a spiky, surfer-boy kind of hairdo!

It does make his white markings much more prominent. And it doesn't make him any less kissable.

Also, Albert Butterbean scoffs at 13g of hair. We average 30. :P

30g?! Wow!

It's nice to be able to feel Robert's shape properly without all that hair. He's less chunky than I thought - 1200g of long narrow caterpillar pig.

His colour markings are also clearer now. Does he like how he feels with a little less hair? Overall, he's still every bit as adorable as he was before the hair cut.

He looks even cuter! Spikey little urchin! He seems a little traumatised, maybe he needs to come over here for a relaxing holiday with my girls!

I'm not sure he cares that much although he's super-sensitive to touch now in a foolish purring way. Now I can feel all the partings and half-rosettes in his hair, rather than his hair being pulled down by its own weight, I can pet accordingly which is approved of. He snorgled right into my neck when I was stroking a section on his side that grows forwards.

Clairey,
I describe Alice the exact same way. Long, skinny caterpillar pig.
She is a very petite girl at just around 900 grams.
Ever since we got Latte in December, Alice walks around the cage purring. If you disturb the air around her, she purrs all happy like a kitten or something.

I really love Bobs new do. He looks absolutely adorable.
