Ginger and MaryAnn appear to have been together for their whole lives. They've had two stints at the humane society. Given that they're supposedly both 1 year and 2 months old when I adopted them, they've had a hard time staying in a home. They're both very vocal, so that might have something to do with it. Those days are behind them now since they're both so sweet and I just love their vocals. They were treated for worms in May. Both are healthy now. They're going in for a trim next week too. Ginger has little razors for claws and it's time to fix that.
They're still too small to see their testes, which is why I missed it. My other, larger guinea pigs have clearly defined testes which show up when they drag their bottoms to mark territory. It also explains why they try to mount each other more than usual. They must still be establishing their pecking order. I still have to keep the seperation the same, but it's due to possible fighting.
So I have given them new names. Ginger will now be known as Gillian and MaryAnn will be Skipper in the interest of keeping the theme of their names. Other than that little bit of news, their nail trim went well and they're both happy and healthy GUYS lol.
Oreo did very well. He's apparently accustomed to having his nails trimmed. He must have been well cared for by his previous owners. He is happy and healthy too. I half expected them to tell me he's a female, but he's not. Clearly a male. I can relax a little bit with all of my pigs being boars, but I still have to keep them far apart enough to keep them from fighting or wrecking the two bonded pairs I have.

Made me laugh. Good thing they're the same sex. Gillian & not Gilligan? Not that it matters.
When I was 10 I brought home a classroom pig (I get to keep her, Mom). We thought Patch was a girl. I finally realized Patch was a boy 37 years later when we had our little boy Tadley.

Including me there are 6 girls to my lonely male husband. And boy do we gang up on him! Glad vet visit went well and you're still in the good books!

Natalie Schafer, who played Eunice "Lovey" Wentworth Howell, she had breast cancer and they really butchered her when they removed her breasts. As watched a documentary on Gilligan's Island and Tina Louise-Ginger told Natalie she had breast cancer and that Natalie wouldn't understand. Natalie stood up never said a word and just under did her top and showed Tina the mess doctors had done to her. It was really sad! Not sure if Tina had hers removed her just treatment.
