Send Butterbean over to us! She is way too cute! Shame she's a girl you could have called her Shaun after Shaun the sheep!

Absolutely no rhyme or reason, but Edwina Butterbean!

Whatever name Ms Butterbean ends up with cannot detract from how super cute she is. I can't wait to see more photos of her as she grows. I keep looking at her photos and just keep going awww. So difficult to now get back and try to concentrate on doing actual work.

Mr Steve has definitely claimed you. He sounds so mellow given his life over the past few weeks. If he's up for a snuggle now at his tender age, he's going to be really soppy when he's a real grown up. :)

I can barely believe that little puffball is even real. Truvy Butterbean?

Edit: If she stays (ha!), just think of all the future yarn you can make.

Awww, man! You guys are gonna get me into sooo much trouble! 5 cute little piggies just aren't enough for me anymore.

Can anyone name a good divorce attorney? I'll need one after the Mr. files. Or one with a medical background because I know whatever the other half claims is a reason, my intellectual acuity will be called into question too.

Just keep reminding him how much he loves you.

I always knew my husband loved me. But True Love is when he helps tube feed your anorexic, featherless chicken to pull her through a bad molt [twice a day for 3 weeks help].

Tell him he can aspire to sainthood by acceding to your every whim :-)

I can be there in 4 hours to Ninja her back to Charlotte.
I mean, er, uh, um, she's cute and all, but not my type.
If she goes missing, I assure you that my house is the last place you should search.
I can assure you that the Steel Magnolias legacy would stop and she wouldn't answer to Olympia "Olly" Butterbean.
I can also assure you that I forgot about Truvy. I started in on actresses real names. Never take suggestions from me.
Truvy is perfect. And I agree that Alden is spelled S-U-C-K-E-R because we all know that she is meant to be a part of your superheard.

Oh. My. Goodness. The adorable fluff! I wouldn't be able to let that one slip through my fingers, either, Alden, like a lot of other folks here on the forums. You're in good company! She won't take up too much room, I'm sure, so please no divorce proceedings anywhere over her. Also, it's kind of out of the blue, but I always thought Fizzgig would be a fun name for a super-fuzzy guinea pig (from the little critter in the Dark Crystal movie). Fizzgig Butterbean has kind of a nice ring to it.

For the record, too, y'all: I'm not the one who brought up divorce issues (this time!). My husband has been very good about giving over the dining room table for Miss Lil Pouf's quarantine cage and even about the concept of her staying. He knows I'm headed for a year of sad losses, in all likelihood, and knows that sometimes things just happen. The cage equilibrium is best at 4 and we'll head back there, but right now it might be 5 for a little while.

He has, however, wrinkled his nose at every name I've run by him. And when reporting on her behavior, he's calling her "Gopher." I told him he can't just call a new pig by the old pig's name and he looked thoughtful for a moment and then said okay, he'd call her "Gopher Junior."

That said, I think her official name -- assuming, again, that she isn't a surprise boy! -- will be Truvy. Truvy P. Butterbean, where the P is of course for Pouf.

ZOMG the cuteness is almost unbearable. Geez, I go away for the weekend and I miss this. Lil T. P. Butterbean is about the cutest thing on the planet!

Huh! For some reason husband keeps telling me to "back away from the edge!" ;o) Just because I told him once or twice it's Adopt a Rescued Guinea Pig Month...

(Maddy: please imagine a guinea pig not quite as long as your palm, covered in tiny curls so she ends up being completely round like a little fuzzy ball. Or just imagine the cutest thing you've ever imagined, that'll do. In one of the pictures she is sitting in a teacup, which just magnifies the cuteness a million billion times.)

Okay that is IT! I am getting my other half to build a boat and we are coming to pignap that little heart melting sweetheart. What a little angel! I just want to stare at the pictyres and drool like Homer Simpson when he thinks of doughnuts! If she suddenly disappears it wasn't me! Heh Heh Heh.
