Wow - lovely Easter pics.

If I put all 4 of my boars in a basket, no way would it be a happy family picture like that - mine would just be rumbling & probably a big ball of flying fur! Your boys are way more polite than mine & very cute too.

Happy Easter to you all.

I know it has been too long.... things have been so busy. But please, please take a moment to remember, pray, send good thoughts, vibes, healing light, blessings, or whatever you do, to Oreo and his family.

Oreo is here on my pages; he's the charming little guy I piggysit from time to time. He is nearing the end... his family is trying so hard to keep him alive with tons of vet visits and treatments, but he is quickly going downhill, and I'm not sure he is going to make it.

He is so sweet, and they are so sweet, and they love him beyond all reason. All of the vets love him too. And so do I. Please help this little family cope with the days that are ahead if he does not make it. Thank you for reading, and I'm sorry to have been away for so long. You can find Oreo's picture a few pages back, if you want to see who I mean.

Blessings,
Bethany and the Boars

The vet just called Oreo's dad. Oreo will have to be put to sleep. They are going to wait until this afternoon so the whole family can be there. It is so very sad. Please send good and peaceful thoughts their way. If you want to see his picture, Oreo is on page 6, sniffing a Christmas ornament.

The heartbreak these darling little ones bring.

Thanks for asking! My boys are doing well. *knocks wood*

All are very sweet, all are about to become very mad. I went to order their 3rd cut Timothy, and There. Is. None. Yikes.

I may have a mutiny. They love it so. I am almost out, and it will be back to the store-bought stuff soon. Ooooh, they're going to be angry.

On a more cheerful and silly note, I'll post this. For anyone who hasn't heard this, give it a listen. It's a bit of a novelty song by the Ramones, and I sing it to my pigs all the time. The name of the song is, "Everytime I Eat Vegetables, It Makes Me Think of You."

You will find it catchy, hang on til it gets to the chorus, and your pigs may like it too. I hope everyone is doing well.

Funny. Any new pics of your boys? When was the last time you had girls?

It has been ages since I've had any little girls. Actually, Snickers and MoonPie were said to be girls before I met them. That's how much the previous owners (and the store they got them from) knew about guinea pigs.

And here is Smokey, representing the crew in his dashing Halloween hat. The hat is a little clip. He's the most patient, and has the most hair, so he got to be the supermodel this season -- although I have already gotten the background for Christmas photos.

We wish you a happy Halloween, be it an early greeting!

Yes, he is. I love your boys, but it was from your girls I learned first (about ten years ago (: )

Thank you all so much. I love him so. He's gotten so brave. He takes carrots right from my fingers now. Hopefully he's forgotten all about his start in life and lives it to the fullest each day now with Louie.

Here's our little Halloween party from last year. I'm not sure if I posted it or not. I don't use youtube any more because they want me to use my real name, and I feel odd doing that. I will have to find a new place to post videos.

I spoke too soon on my boys being fine. Snickers is sick. He wouldn't eat AT ALL last night and he seems to have lost some weight. He had been eating just fine. Don't know what it could be. Waiting here at work for the vet to open so I can get an appointment. I'll take MoonPie in too since if it's contagious, he'll have it too, although he seems fine. Snickers seemed fine until last night. Nervous....

Oh no! I hope whatever is making him feel cruddy, leaves in a hurry!

Got an appointment at 4 pm. It's going to be a long day waiting for that appointment for my poor little man. His pictures are here all around me at work.
