I'm still a slave to Orvis' butt hair!

Guess what...I was approved to adopt Jasper!! He of his own lovely butt mohawk!

Jodi, one of my friends has a saying:

Men, you can't live with them . . . . . . . . uh, pass me another beer.

The fiance will fall in love with Jasper. Either way, he's in love with you, so everything will work out.

Thanks! I can't wait to go pick him up. He's a big boy too 3lbs. He is such a sweetie.

He and Jeffy will get an introduction on Saturday and if all goes well he will be coming home with me. Before that, Dayna and I will be rearranging Jeffy's current pen.

What about quarantine?

He is in a great foster home now and has gone through quarantine and several doses of Ivermectin as a precautionary . He is well and healthy.

Dominic, a rescue pig from a couple of years ago(?) is thrilled with Raychelle, one of my most recent rescue pigs. He's in love with her and has no competition. Last time he had his eyes on a sow, she was already bonded to another boar and spurned his advances sending him into days long sulks.

One thing not mentioned about breeding your own pigs is genetics. You could be breeding a family of heart pigs or breeding pigs that will suffer down the line from inbreeding and genetic weakness.

Pinta, your pigs remind me of Snuggles and Marilyn, our honeymooning pigs. Snuggles always sleeps near or next to Marilyn and vice versa. If Princess (diva sow) picks on Marilyn, he'll step in on her behalf. We noticed this bond developing before they were even allowed to be together while Snuggles was recovering from his neuter. They were in adjoining cages at the time.

Actually Lisam, I am home most of the time. I'm homeschooled, my mom is a stay at home mom, and there is always at least one of us staying home to make sure the dog doesn't try to bother the guinea pig. So I really don't think she'll be too lonely.

The reason I decided I wanted a guinea pig is because I came onto the cavy cages site, then on to guinea lynx and learned a lot about them. I didn't think I'd get one for a long time, but when we had to put our hound dog to sleep, and I was feeling really sad, so to cheer me up, my mom bought me a guinea pig.

By the way, jasper is a very cute piggie. Love his hair! :)
