It's clearly not snuggling because one pig is in the hay tray and one isn't but, um, yeah.

Each time their relationship reaches a new level of harmony, they both put on weight. :) All their weight losses and gains since they've been together have mirrored each other - it's fascinating. Currently Graham is 1390g (3lb mark reached and breached!) and Simon is 1180g.

Except for the induced terror of a trip to the vet, that's about as close as any of my boars have gotten to cuddling. Graham looks so comfy.

Simon reminds me so much of my first piggy, Sherbet. The exact same shade of coloration and the white crown. Graham, I think is the vari-coloured? Correct me if I'm wrong. He and Maximus could have been soul brothers in size terms! Max was as long as my forearm, from elbow to my middle fingertip. A big pig.

And is it just me or does Simon often look like he's smiling?

Simon is pretty smiley. And yeah, Maximus sounds about the same size - just about perfect cuddle-size. :)

The boys having a little nap on the sofa.

They were like hot, sleepy little puddings when I put them back.

A shot from above. Graham's floof is handily disguising Simon's rather chunky waistline.

Seriously you need to bottle and sell your water. If I just put my pigs on the couch they would bolt, or wedge themselves down the back, or fly off it entirely and right into the waiting mouth of a dog. Not sleeping-pudding.

They are so adorable. In that top view, don't you just want to bury your face between them??

Oh my face got duly buried. Then Graham kissed my nose. :)

I caught them at a dopey time of day, I think. Though if I dug through my hard drive I'm pretty sure I have the same picture for 5 different combinations of pigs. Maybe that cushion is ridiculously comfy if you're a pig.

Ha, it might explain their attacks of the munchies.

I went a-hunting and found some throwback pics of boars past and present on the Comfy Cushion.

I surprisingly don't have one for Graham and Stephen so here's them snogging on the floor instead.

I mean, you can acknowledge that this is unusual, right? It's just NOT NORMAL to have that many cuddle-bonded pairs in a row. Ergo there is something magic -- about you, your water, or your pillow. Or all three!

I dunno! I think I just got lucky a lot. Things are definitely less easy without Stephen the elder statespig though.

Drugs and SuperGlue.

A great combination!

I wonder if some of the mantle was handed down from Stephen to Graham...I'll need to reread the entire thread, I don't know all the piggies the herd involved or when they all met, which pairs grew up together if any.

One of your piggies must be the well-head. In my original herd, it was Sherbie, then Max for the boys, Maria for the girls.

I'm also voting for the Cuddle Cushion*. I wonder if gets good sunlight or something...

*Sorry, the Comfy Cushion. Comfy Cuddle Cushion of Companionship. There's a tongue twister, no?
