The shape of some boulders was brilliant! Some resembling sharks swallowing sad faced beings.
And other more famous boulders resembling elephants
Other boulders had a name, but for me were just too "high ball" (tall) or difficult for me to attempt or reach the top.
Others, often those on the beginners (aka, "kids") circuits I was able to conquer! And I was delighted!
After days climbing, hiking and trying to ease aching hands and muscles before the next day of more climbing and hiking, boyfriend and I ventured into Paris - a place I've always dreamed to visit - for two days before coming home.
AHEM! we would like to interrupt Owners update to make a formal complaint.
Firstly, owner has been looking at upgrading her cage. We need your help in encouraging owner to stop looking at "tenement flats" and instead to open her mind to the idea of getting us somewhere like this:
Also, why were we not consulted when Buddy disappeared only to reappear and have THIS happen?
No, no, stop looking at Rue - we are talking about the absence of hay from Hay Rack 1... yes, yes, we had grass in the cage but don't you know that guinea pigs need all hay racks to be full at all times?!
GP_mum, it's actually MY living quarters that I am hoping to change this summer. Fingers crossed that I find somewhere! I have a plan for my living room I just need to find the right flat!
"I would like to go away now."
"It will take more than a handful of grass to make me want anything to do with you."
Maisie thinks that she's a little horror. Never have I ever heard sweet little Maisie chattering her teeth at any pig until I found Rue bouncing around her not sure whether to stuff her head beneath Maisie or hump her!
Maisie and Rue are about the same age. I thought for this reason that adopting Rue was the perfect idea so Maisie could have a pig her own age to run around after. I'm not sure I'll see them cuddling up together in a hide any time soon, though.
"Bring it on."
But don't worry, Maisie (notice her blue eyes!) has a secret weapon whenever Rue decides to bother her.
Nah, I'm only joking. Scribble is often too busy trying to defend his derrière hair from being touched to interfere in any of the sow's arguments.
The real weapon that Maisie has whenever she's being picked on is:
As one of our heavyweight sows Meribel is the perfect pig to be friends with if you have a pig being a bit of a butt to you in the cage. As the only mum-pig in the group she seems to have the utmost respect from the entire herd! All Maisie has to do is put mum between herself and Rue.
Scribble likes to scream and rumble at the slippers.
Maisie likes to step on them
Meribel thinks they are not very interesting
Rue likes to eat the eyes!!!
And everyone else just seems confused or more interested in whether the legs have food.
BE - hehehe, she is very lovely to cuddle and she has a lovely face!
Beware the Pig who is Only a Bum
By Maisie the little pig
From the bedroom upstairs we can plainly hear
The alarm declaring: Breakfast Time is here!
"Get Up!" and "Come ON!" the alarm clock will sing
Until grumbling and moaning the person gives in
Roar of the kettle followed by a very distinct 'slurm'
We heard the fridge open! Morning veggies will come!
Wheeking excited, swarms a guinea pig hive
Morning persons need encouragement to quickly arrive
She stumbles through the door toward the cage with a grunt
Then scatters the veggies extra to me, the little runt
Hay bags are refilled and piggies dash to be sure
That what they've chosen to eat is the best and not poor
But wait! Did we forget to notice something suspicious over there
Where hay should be shown there's a ginger fizz of hair
The derrière of this piggie suggests it's only hay she will munch
But there's a suspicious slurping soon followed by a familiar crunch
Quickly I sprint to see what's happening inside
Where a piggie is eating something she feels she should hide
And look, come and see! It was melon she found!
The best slice of melon tossed onto the ground
Today I have learned as I try to get some
Be aware of a piggie who is only a bum.
