I have fifteen guinea pigs (9girls and 6boys). All my girls live together, and yesterday Apollo had an operation to remove a cyst on her overies, (it was the size of a golf ball!) the vet decided that it would be safer to spay her aswell. She is feeling very sorry for herself and getting lots of attention from me, I think shes a bit confused on whys she on her own at the moment.
You can see pictures of my pigs (and apollos stiches!) here:

The girls are (Left to Right) Lil' Fish, Elwing, Evie, Rosie, Lottie-Lou, Baby Fern, Hen and Freya.
They are quite a crazy herd... Baby Fern is boss and usually Apollo is her second in command, but I think Lottie has taken over, while shes away. Lil' Fish is very shy and keeps to herself, Evie and Hen call the food in, they both are the loudest, Elwing is a little know-it-all, Rosie is the cutey-pie, Freya is the "mommy" and when Apollo is around Lottie-lou is an adveturer.
Buddy. He is the kind of pig that a female pig can take home and show her parents!, he is such a gentleman and gets embarresed easily.
Mister. Is a chatterbox, he could talk you to death!
Jake and Frodo. Jake loves food... Frodo is shy and quiet but loves cuddles.
Fraggle and Rocky. These two are a pair! Fraggle thinks he's human and spends most his time under your feet trying to help you and Rocky isn't as forward going but he can be very naughty!
Apollo is the only "proper" himi female, Rosie and Freya a half himi's.
Fraggs... he actually looked presentable.... usually he looks like he has been through a hedge backwards, he must half a long haired breed in him somewhere as his hair though short is alot longer the normal shorthaired pigs. And Frodo he is a pale Lilac Himi.... again Lilac is such a beautiful pig colour.
I admit I do have a wheek spot for Himis and Dalmations. Thank you for your kind words, I'll try to post some more pictures later on.
