Just wondering, Cea, is it a repeat? I´ve seen a Burke´s Backyard segment on guinea pigs before, and I must say, I wasn´t very impressed. I think I´ve also got an article from the Burke´s Backyard magazine on guinea pigs. It had some cute pictures, but the information wasn´t very reliable.
I do apologise for chucking this in the Behaviour forum - I was reading about free range pigs and suddenly remembered the program and in my manic enthusiasm posted before I thought about where I should actually put it.
Kat, I have no idea whether it´s a repeat but hey, most things on TV are so I would assume so!
I saw it. Not real informative, but no really bad advice either, although I did wonder about the advice that they are perfect pets for kids - not that there is anything wrong with kids owning pigs, but very young children can squeeze them etc.
The guests they had on were at least breeders and club people. Some of the varieties they showed were cute.
My mother rang me up in the ad break before it started and informed me. I saw it and it wasn´t terribly exciting. I read the article on them in the magazine today and I noticed I few things were incorrect, but nothing major. It did say that a pig is not recommended for young children.
