Ha ha! Spider Pig definitely has limited tolerance of his garb. :) I'm not even sure if Spider Pig can fit into his tights anymore because of all the peppers and lettuce he's been eating the past few months...

Poor Spidey. Just remember that it's for the greater good.

I found the Spider Pig costume on eBay, believe it or not. I was searching for costume ideas for myself and saw costumes for dogs and cats and it got me thinking...and a search turned up CuddlyCavies (http://www.cuddlycavies.homestead.com/costumes.html). The woman makes them herself, and also has a variety of other costumes and "clothing" available. We attended a Halloween party this past weekend amongst friends, so Dan decided to suit up Spider Pig in his garb and take pictures for our friends to see. And wouldn't you know we had multiple spider pigs turn up...(sorry for the blurry and poor quality pictures...the husband was trying to take them w/o a flash)

Mo Spider Pig (and not very happy about it)

And last, but never least, Brick in his typical "irritated" expression. Or perhaps he's looking thoughtfully into the distance:
ImageNote how the costume barely fits around him. Our little porker, he is.

Next year I want to try the dinosaur. Hee hee.

These pictures are just too cute, I wuuuf them, got to cuddle their spiderliness! :)

I can't say the same for the victims though, they each have their disapproving looks! :p

Brick obviously disapproves of Spiderman. Perhaps he would rather be Batman... er, BatPig.

Just a thought on the SpiderPig...
Do they make their webs with strings of poopies...?
You know, like Christmas cranberry garland? :p

thanks for the link! Those costumes are adorable. I love the look on her model's faces. They are so 'I'm going to die of embarassment.'

Wow. The holidays are upon us. Dan and I have taken to hosting a Thanksgiving dinner at our apartment, and it seems we're going to be having a decent turn out of good friends, which is very exciting. There have been some minor and some major changes around the apartment - after my first attempt at putting Mason in a C&C cage failed, I tried it again one day two weeks ago, and it went just fine. So fine, in fact, I was floored. The new cage sizes meant some adjusting on our part, which wasn't a big deal. However, Thanksgiving with possible 10 people, with no table, and three (and a half) guinea pig cages will be very, very interesting. The boys don't seem to mind...at least I don't think:

Image

Yes, this will indeed be the first Thanksgiving with us for three of our five boys, so...it will be fun. Last year Bear and Mo each got part of a carrot with greens attached as their part of the Thanks-giving. Somehow Brick must have gotten word. Mason is slowly starting to catch on:

Image

And Mortar, ever the angel he tries to be, is attempting to prepare himself for the guests:
Image

And mom is trying to keep her sanity while working two jobs and keeping house with her hubs and animals. I hope everyone has a lovely holiday!

Love,
Mo, Bear, Brick, Mortar and Mason. And Shadow.


Coming soon...The Shenanigans continue into Christmas...

Mortar presents "The Wink and a Wheek Gang Update."

Image
Good day, all. I'm Mortar Pigg, coming to you live from The Blue Pigloo. The Parental units recently took time to thoroughly clean the W&aW Gang's cages, a task that was great appreciated as I could seriously catch whiffs of Mason from across the way (*scowl*). Parental Unit Momma was quoted as saying, "...hey, it had to be done. I'm just sorry I couldn't get to it sooner. I put some extra hay in the bins to make up for my lacking..." She's alright, that Parental Unit Mom.

In other news, The Old Men Downstairs have been getting some good quality couch time.
Image
Mo was reluctant to chat and attempted to make a mad-dash getaway
Image

Bear, on the other hand, was content to sit and smile for our cameras
Image

I was able to catch up with Mo later on while he was having some Momma time.
Image
"I just don't like having my picture taken sometimes," Mo says. "That was particularly bad timing, as Bear kept trying to steal my poopies out from under me. I love the guy, but sometimes he just really makes me want to chew on the bars."

I think we can all relate to that feeling. Mason, the next door neighbor, has his own remedies for dealing with stress.
Image
"Hey man, there's nothing a quick dive into the hay rack can't solve. And a post-hay-binge nap is always a nice touch, too." Mason was later photographed partaking in his own advice not long after our interview:

Image

In political news, Momma and Dad keep watching some guy on the TV by the name of Chris Mat-chews. I learned a long time ago not to chew on mats or anything of the sort, so I don't know if this guy really knows what he's talking about. But Dad likes to watch a lot of political stuff, and Brick of The W&aW gang has decided to put his sway behind Obama. And by sway we mean his bum. And we all know he's got a lot of "sway." Brick was unable to comment in time for my report, as he was too busy munching on pellets while watching his candidate on TV, a habit that's becoming a frequent phenomenon with this pig.


Image
Well folks, that's all for the news. Reporting for The Wink and a Wheek Gang, this is Mortar wishing everyone a good wheek and a happy Valentine's Day.
