Happy St. David's Day, Albert!

Albert is Welsh, so today is a very special day for him. Shortly after taking this photo, he tried to eat the daffodils, so I had to take them away.

Nice to see Albert again and that he's celebrating St David's day.

It's Wilbur's birthday today. Guess how old he is?

Image
That's right, five! It's an extra special birthday for me, because Wilbur is the first of my pigs to reach five years old. Maisie and Damien came very close, but Wilbur is the first to officially hit the mark.

Of course, technically today isn't Wilbur's "official" birthday, as I don't really know when that is, but I chose today because this was the day I adopted him. Personally, I don't think he looks a day older.

Image
I got him a card and a balloon, and he had all his favourite veggies to eat, plus a big pile of hay and lots and lots of special birthday fuss.

Image
(The cake is for me!)

Happy birthday, Wilbur. I hope you're here for many more.

As far as Wilbur's concerned, that balloon might be an eagle.

Thank you all for your kind wishes!

A very fat eagle! If I'm going to be honest, the balloon was mainly for me. I did put it out of sight of the boys, though, just in case they didn't like it.

That is too funny (the eagle comment).

It's a lovely colour isn't it? It's one of my favourites. I used to think it was lilac, but after seeing pictures of other lilac piggies I'm not so sure. Maybe beige?
Wilbur, love the name. Happy birthday!!
Thank you! When I adopted him, his name was Perry, but I didn't like it so I changed it. I think he looks a lot more like a Wilbur any way.

I took a work colleague's dining room table off her hands and she came to deliver it last week with her five year old daughter, G. I let G stroke the boys and they were very well behaved. My colleague commented on how big Albert is and G said he was soft.

Albert is everybody's favourite. Maybe it's because he's big and fluffy and daft with a cute face. I have a guinea pig calender on my wall (not the Guinea Lynx one unfortunately) and my boyfriend is always saying the pigs in it aren't as cute as Albert. I love both my boys, but I have a bit of a soft spot for Wilbur. I like to think of him as the discerning (wo)man's pig as he's more laid back and not overtly funny like Albs (although he does have his moments).

Whenever I clean the boys out I put them in the big cuddle bed together. It's the only time they don't squabble (well, usually). As I was cleaning I heard Albert make an angry "uh-uh-uh" noise and I went to see what was going on. He and Wilbur were sitting top to tail in the cuddle bed, and when I lifted Albert up I noticed his chin was wet and there was a damp patch near Wilbur's bum. Wilbur had obviously peed in the cuddle bed and because his butt was next to Albert's head some of it had ended up on poor Albert!

Took Wilbur to the vet for a checkup today. Now he's an old man I want to make sure he's okay! Luckily, he got a clean bill of health, and the vet commented on how well-behaved he was. He just seemed to take it all in his stride and didn't make a fuss at all, even when the vet checked his teeth.

Glad to hear that Wilbur's vet visit went well and he was relaxed about it.

Thanks, GP Mum! Wilbur is a very chilled out guinea pig in general. He doesn't even mind having his claws trimmed. He's like a zen pig!

My boyfriend bought some customised Coke bottles for me and my pets. Obviously, the boys won't be drinking their Cokes, but I couldn't resist a photo opportunity!

Love the bottles!

A few years ago someone on here had a set-up for water bottles that used a Coke bottle I can't remember who it was, Rshevin maybe? It would be cute if you were able to use the bottles.

Nah it is lavender in the trade (I think?). It's very nice..

and Albert does have similar colouring to Truffle, similar age too.
