I hate to disrupt your Dental Wiki and update this thread with "Berno related" news! :)
Now, the conclusion of the social experiment.

So we start by putting Bernie ON the ramp like so. :)

5 whopping minutes later, he is still at the SAME spot!

*stretch out momo's chubby legs*
So, finally, with a little encouraging brrrr... from Emma upstairs, he finally took a step up!

Come on people, this is time to get out your pompoms and start cheering!

So close now, bernie, come on big boy!!!

Okay, let me desperate shrikes for help begin...

Oh lookit that face with the trembling weep weeeeep's...
Momo elevator will carry you up to the hay and yumyums...

I have to dash now, got a gazillion things to do today before some good friends leave town for good.

The NEW ramp is up, I had to wait for it to dry since Buji pretty much used 1/2 tube of gorilla on the carpet!
I will post the updates later today, and also, with a piece of VERY EXCITING news!
*jumping up and down*
Our family has just grown by 2! :)

I can hardly wait for your news ; )

Lookit poor little Bernie. I just want to give him a big cuddle and tell him it's ok and that Emma won't REALLY eat him. Cute pics and a great cage.

Poor Buji. At least he's not stuck to the carpet. (Good job Ben!)

Before we continue, we would have to rewind back to last weekend....
It started with a simple cage loft addition.
But since the pigs have to hang out in the kitchen while we slave away, why not throw in a bath?
Well, since we are bathing everyone, why not add a melt,... a nail trim,.. an ear cleaning,... a hair cut,....
Lookit my Emma, totally approving of the spa treatment...
*cough cough*

You know, if she can scale that plexiglass wall, we really should have slept with BOTH eyes open!

The same disapproval carries over to the cage arrangement as well,....
Even wee Tweety looked tense there!

Never phased, McChompChomp was off to explore her cage.

Well, I guess we all know about Bernie' ramping-ness, well, he ain't ramping.

Topaz, I am sorry I had to rush out earlier today, but I do remember your beautiful Diamond girl.
She was the STAR in my Secret Solstice hint bag.
And Lynx did such an extraordinary job on the drawing too.

I took everyone's suggestions on the ramp, ramping and ramperd, and had Lis (the coroplast queen) made us guardrails, extension and adjustment.
May I present to everyone Ramp 2.0.

Before long, lookit what happened.
What a brave little piggy, now everyone, a round of applause please!
Our Bernie was running up and down in full force.
And has no problem of worshiping at the foot of Orchard Grass Goddess Statue.

Now, strictly speaking, it only took our Bernie a week to master the ramp,...
Remember the bet we had going in the house, well, sorry Buji, you lost, now pay up and go scrub mu kitchen!

Remember how we once adopted Gallardo/da/ditta 2 years ago?
Well, we have once again adopted TWO more aquatic pets.
May I present to you, BenBen and MuiMui.
They are a pair of very bonded octopi, they love hanging out at Momo's Piggery, guarding our clay and glaze!

Get ready for the big day - the grand opening of Momo's Piggery!
*(uh,... that is a banned word I guess...)

Can't wait for the grand opening!!

Is that carpet just laid down? Is it attached at all?

I'm so proud of Bernie. Glad he likes the ramp.

Thanks for saying "the coroplast queen" not "the coroplast hoarder" LOL

Yay Bernie!! He knew that the ramp was not safe for him to use without guardrails. What if Miss Emma had to hurry down the ramp while he was still on it?!

Miss Emma looks so pretty with the little curls around her face. :)

Momo, your clay-designing skills are amazing!

Actually, Bernie wasn't scared of the ramp. He didn't want to use it because he was....safety conscious?

when you said 2 new members joining your family, Momo, I thought you might be pregnant with twins!! *blush* lol.

Lovely octopus, you have such a cute artistic streak, Momo :)

I just realized that Mojo's pose in the painting is LITERALLY cheering on Bernie at the top of the ramp! Yay for Bernie!!

Sometimes I think piggies are like well-executed video games. Like Lemmings, maybe. Where you think you have everything set up right for a win, and the Lemmings keep doing something wrong, or NOT doing something, and you're all "What the heck? The conditions are totally right here!" And then you add guard rails and they're like "NOW I will climb up the ramp, thank you for finally figuring it out."

Berno is adorable. But that picture of McChompChomp glaring at the wallpaper and the bird trying to run away in fear is really perfect. :)
