I didn´t know there were dark eyed whites. I don´t think I have ever seen one. If a PEW is a red with no color, what is a DEW??

My Penny has been referred to as red. She may be golden now that I see this photo. She is pretty dark, but not as dark as this pig.

A PEW can be a red with all the red suppressed. I think they can be something else, but that´s too deep for me. And yes, you can have a DEW. I think they are very nice.

Orange (it,s called orange in North America and golden in Europe) is a red with pink eyes. Your pig has dark eyes. The pink eye gene dilutes the red to a golden color, but that´s not your pig. I can´t really tell from the picture since I don´t see all of her body, but she is either a brassy cream or a pale red. I´d go for red. Any more pictures?

The picture of Tubbit in her cozy is the pig I thought was white and cream! Penny, my other pig, is the one I think is red. YES!!! I have LOTS of pictures! I just have to perfect my posting abilities! I´ll get some up of both of them. Penny is the one who had the wierd fur part running down to her butt. BUT... it was caused by mites. Since the mites are gone, the fur part is gone too.

I´ll get some photos up. Penny has dark eyes too. I would LOVE to see a DEW in person. I bet they are really cute! Are they pretty uncommon?

Kara-
Ok, she´s a brassy cream, then. That´s what I thought originally. And your other pig sounds red.

Lynx has a DEW, her Snowflake. It´s the white Abby that comes up on her avatar.

Her eyes really are blue. I think it makes her look so intelligent (guess what color my eyes are??).

Cute pictures. Tubbit looks so snug in the Cavy Cozy!

Isn´t anyone going to inform our friends down under about the infamous "Twinkie defense" which resulted in an accused murderer getting let off?

San Francisco mayor Moscone and city supervisor Harvey Milk were fatally shot by an assailant who mounted the defense that he was addicted to Twinkies owing to depression. A doctor testified that the high level of sugar and fats in the Twinkies altered his brain chemistry. He claimed his mental capacity was diminished as a result, therefore he wasn´t responsible for what he did. Apparently the jury was convinced, as he was found not guilty of murder. There was public outrage and rioting in San Francisco after the verdict was announced.

Better take it easy on those Twinkies!

Pigpal... I remember the Moscone/Milk thing, but I do not remember the Twinkie part. I have heard of the Twinkie defense, but I didn´t know the two went together! That´s kind of scary. As I remember, it was pretty clear the assailant did it. He relally got off because of Twinkies??!! I can´t believe anyone bought that. That was in 78 or 79 wasn´t it? No wonder there was public outrage! I am shocked to this day to hear that.

Lynx, you piggie is darling!!!!!!!! Are her eyes really blue? Do they alwyas look blue or just in certain light. How common are DEW pigs?

No, they are not really blue. Dark eyes sometimes look greyish blue, but it´s not blue like in a human being. It´s still called dark eyes, though.

Ok, Kara, from les to right, in your picture...
-self red
-cream/white broken
-self black
-pink eyed white

Very cute pigs, by the way.

Kara - he got off with manslaughter because of his depression, but the Twinkies were featured in the defense. Of course the media seized on the Twinkies part and ran with it, so that´s what stuck in people´s minds. That and the fact that Milk was the first openly gay elected public official.

Dan White, the guy who pulled the trigger, was released in the mid-80´s and killed himself shortly after.

They are a soft, lovely grey-blue. All the time. They look very nice in the light.

I don´t remember the Twinkie defense but am glad you brought it up. I would hate for someone to be so smitten with these objects that we started them on a course of consumption leading to murder and mayhem.

I think I´ll stick with my chocolate.

Do you think manic chocolate consumption would make a good defense?

Oh yes! Maybe you could blame it all on the Belgians and create an international incident?

Your piggie can have any eye color you want!!! She´s darling no matter the "real" color!

Thanks, Evangeline! I still miss Taffy (PEW) SO MUCH!! It´s hard for me to look at this photo. When I first got her, I thought those red eyes were so yucky. They looked like jello. But, boy did I fall in love. All I remember, in the end, is those beautiful eyes looking at me while I syringed water and crital care many times a day. She will always be missed.

I think chocolate is the best way to go!

Kara, reading what you said about Taffy´s eyes while you cared for her brought a tear to my eye.....
