Poppycorn, I have been assured you will be pocket-searched before you leave. NO pig-napping allowed!!
Thanks, Auntie clairey. I am not sure he will be sitting round the tea tray though, he can take second sittings . . . maybe!
My mum says she DID have a pair of boy pigs many years ago. They were Mildred and Molly's offspring, they were 'pet shop pigs' and both pregnant (boys again!). They went to a new home but returned when they were 4. My mum said they didn't smell as sweet as us girls! But anyway, Bertie has a daddy to see to all those 'manly jobs, meaning my our mum needn't be too near anything smelly whatsoever.
Bertie's bag is packed. Look, here he is having a little chat with his daddy earlier this evening.
He is explaining how he will be able to live with his tribe once he's been seen to!
I am not sure what he is saying here (but I think I can guess)!
And here's a rare photo of our mum and a matching Bertie!
My mum said the vet was very really knowledgeable. They do pain relief before the op. And After. And he has 2 follow up appointments booked in for next week.
He reckons we should wait 6 weeks before Bertie can join me and his other wives. I think Flo, in particular, will be glad to hand over the responsibility of co-pig-in-chief!
Thank you for all your good wishes, your comments made us all feel happy!
My mum' shoulder is dong well except last night she said she didn't sleep a wink for the ache in it. Daddy keeps saying not to over-do things but you know what it's like, some people just won't listen!
Bertie has just gobbled up his Critical Care, a dandelion leaf and a spot of Cavolo leaf. He is getting another topping up at 8pm.
