All of that does not bode well for the pigs or any animals there!

The pigs are lucky to have you as their back-up plan.

I sure hope the abscess pig gets well soon and doesn't reabscess.

YOu do not use that office, where are the piles of crap?

I'm with you, BL. I'll bet Barbara doesn't do any real work. She just sits by her pool, her and her pigs, decked out in sunglasses, sipping their little fru-fru drinks while the pool boy waits on them hand and foot.

I assume OK. I'll see her tomorrow when I go into Sandy's to do her books.

Snuggles looks really good. The lump has shrunk even more and is now more oval shape and smaller.

Sandy says the whole family watches the GP girls do their zoomies in the evening. Even her husband was talking to the piggies.

Today as I was doing my bookkeeping work, I could hear Sandy on the phone telling her Junior League friends all about the piggie girls.

Her 7 year old daughter rushed in today after school to see the GP girls.

The family is taking good care of the GP girls, my work is done.

Thank you all for your wise advice and caring words.

These little PETCO girls will do just fine now, thanks to you all.

I am picturing Barbara in a Mary Poppins like outfit, opening up her umbrella and getting ready to fly off to another home with piggies in need of someone to look after them.

Good news, the lump is down to a size of a very small pea.

Sandy's husband, a pharmacist, told her that "That Vet should take lessons from Barbara!"

That was a high compliment. I'd like to thank all of you for imparting your medical wisdom through GL all these years.

Now, where has my umbrella got off to?

Thanks for the update. Sound like you might need to continue the medication until the lump is completely gone and continue monitoring for a while after that.

Yes, Sandy is continuing the Bactrim. Her husband made it up and brought it home from the pharmacy that he owns.

It has been over two years and I KNEW that someday I would end up with these two girls, Noodle and Snuggles. Only now it is THREE (Two years ago Sandy got a Peruvian, Lucy, at Petco against my strongest objections).

Sandy has many times asked me to take these pigs but I always said no. I told her it was important to her girls that they realized that pets are not disposable.

When I would work at Sandy's I would always bring these pigs KM's bluegrass and sneak fresh veggies from Sandy's refrigerator and feed them. She rarely gave them fresh veggies.

She told me this week that she was going to take them to the Humane Society so I let my guard down and I said yes.

I brought them home today.

I have blocked off the top floor penthouse for these three girls. They can get used to the smells and sounds of the herd without being in the midst of it.

They are all 2 1/2 years old by now and very healthy. They are loving all the fresh veggies and KM's bluegrass.

I know that the Humane Society would have been fine for them but I foster for Treasure Coast Humane Society and probably would have had these girls in my home anyway.

So we are back up to 13. Bruce was so sweet in making sure they were comfy. I said "You are such a good Piggy Dad." He said with a twinkle in his eye "I prefer to be called 'Piggy Pa'."

Piggy Pa has a nice ring to it :-)

It is frustrating when a friend/acquaintance does not do the right thing by their pets. Do you think you will look for a new home for them? I'm glad they are at least healthy.
