Did you know that when you touch a wet bongo, such as when it's raining or if your hand is wet, you come away with red dye on your hand? but the hair of the bongo is not quantifiably less red?

It must feel good to get all those skin cells off, though. I'm itchy just looking at it.

That photo of Calvin sleeping (towards the top of the last page) is just too cute! It's almost unbearable.

Calvin is known for sleeping with his eyes closed at all times :)

I got a good picture of Ernie today. It is hard to catch one because he moves so much.

Everytime I see your updates it fuels my desire to own a skinny one day!! That will make me pig collection complete :) (has there ever been skinnies in rescues over there??) Although here in HK it's almost impossible to find a skinny at the SPCA, I've only ever seen one once years ago in the pet shop.

OHHHH! Okay, that photo with calvin sleeping, first pic on the last page...is that really how pink he is?!

What pampered pigs wiped down with coconut oil, Barnaby looks very pleased with his bum. and what a great Easter photoshoot, I'm always so lazy to do photoshoots...

I must say, as someone with dry skin, that the after picture of an oiled up and rubbed down piggie is music to my skin. I must be so nice to see them oiled up and happy!

Lovely pictures, it's so interesting to see what a pig looks like under all of their fluff.

Thank you :)

Serelixyue, I have seen a couple skinny pigs in the local SPCA and there are always a handful or more on Kijiji being rehomed (that is how I got Calvin, Hobbes and Rugby).
Also the one rescue not far from me has gotten some skinny pigs in, a few are pregnant. I had a wicked thought about wanting to adopt a pair of little ones :)

I do enjoy wiping them with the coconut oil, I always assume it feels nice after and they feel so soft, not to mention smell great.

Today was grocery shopping day! That is where I get all the piggies veggies (unless it is market day and things are in season).
I also get their treats at the grocery store because the only treats my piggies get are veggies or the occasional fruit. Today I purchased raspberries and apples!

They did get Raspberries but I never took a picture lol

Today was a big day! I changed the spare room around and did major cleaning. I also got some custom tables made for the cages to be put on and they finally arrived.
Seymour now has the run of the room and I can reach the pigs so much easier.

The room finished. Seymour out and the pigs have some fleece draped around.
