I don't have to worry about contamination too much in my yard. There aren't any animals who do their business there except for along the sidewalk and I don't put my guinea pigs near there. They stay closer to the house.
Found this old picture of Mr Bubbles in my cloud. Reminded me of when he was young and before he got too fat and out of shape to get up there. We've long since gotten him slimmed down to a good weight and in top shape, but for some reason he doesn't get up there anymore. I believe he's the one who taught Scruffy to do that. Or maybe it was the other way around. I can't honestly remember.
I just love Mr Bubbles so much. Just look at those sweet and kind eyes. He's absolutely perfect. Loves to be held and petted. Just about the only thing that will get him to bite is messing with his feet or his face. Even then, it's just a harmless little nip to let you know he doesn't like it. He's been such a great mentor for the others, especially when grazing outside. His presence and calmness influences the others to be relaxed out there too.
This photo was taken yesterday. He doesn't get to go outside to graze today because I had to mow the lawn and do the hard take to get all of the dead stuff out of there. It was a lot of work, but I got it done. I always wait at least 24 hours after mowing to put the piggies out to graze. It been so nice out, so he'll have a chance to eat his fill again tomorrow. He's not happy about missing the chance to go outside, but I have a bunch of wheat grass to make it up to him.
Sammy and Dean are the next oldest at around 3 years of age and the rest are two and under. They're all healthy so I believe they will make the trip just fine. The car has front and rear climate control, so I will be able to keep them comfortable. We're not going to be breaking any speed records or taking any of the curves fast enough to make them tumble around either. I'm hoping for a smooth trip and for all of them to make it to our new home safely.
