When our Slave looked at their website this week, she saw that the final two babes born to one of the rescued mums were up for adoption and decided to call and reserve them. Their pigtures can be see here - fourth row down.
The girls at Palace Piggies have named them Fernando and Martin.
Well now they are here with us and here are their pigtures. Fernando first.
They are only 7 weeks old and understandably very nervous and Slave picked them up for their photoshoot as they prefer to hide in their little house at the moment. They are eating up all of their veggies except for cucumber but prefer to sneak out of their house under cover of darkness to clear their plate!
Please welcome these dear little fellows, Undercover Agents in the making!

Dunya was a lovely himalayan, and Daisy was a gorgeous round silver agouti US teddy.
We never had them together, but they were (more or less coincidentally) named after the main characters of a Dutch TV show named Dunya and Daisy. Only we liked the spelling for Daisy better, in the tv series it is Desi, read a bit more about the series here
As with many popular youth series they also had their own movie. Dunya and Desi is about two friends, Dunya is from Moroccan decent and Desi is a very dutch girl, the series shows differences in how they were raised and how that influences their friendship.
Here are some videos of Dunya and Daisy from a few years ago...
This a video of Dunya and her old cage mates Lotje and Guiny (my first group of piggies).
Look closely to see why Lotje seems so mean to Dunya...
And Daisy sleeping... Daisy is sleeping in the middle (see her ears flap?) other silver agouti is Lily. Woopy is lounging under the hay rack...
And Roos disturbs Daisy's slumber...
Have a great wheekend,

Regular readers might have been wondering where we had disappeared to, the truth us we have had a lot going on in the real world.
First Daddy's Mum had a cancer scare (she is fine now) and then Mummy's Grandad had a stroke and sadly died, now Mummy has hurt her neck so puter time is limited as she needs to rest when she is at home.
The good news is we are both fine and have been enjoying some time in the garden, in the shade of course.
We hope you and your families are all healthy and happy and we hope to be around more soon.

I don't care if it's 13 or 100 years old, @Snapple's "Pigs of Pamploma" video will always be a favorite: https://t.co/2KgTYO5YfF #guineapigs— Happy Cavy (@happycavy) July 20, 2016

It is very hot here today at Piggyfriends. The weatherman called it a mini heatwave. The minier the better as far as us piggies are concerned. He said that this weather had come up from Spain. We are glad that we don't live there.
Slave has lots of fans going to keep us all cool and she decided that all of the Peruvians should have a haircut.
First of all she gave us a shampoo. Here I am looking very bedraggled.
We do not have air conditioning as it is rarely hot in England and Slave has moved those of us who normally live in the conservatory into the dining room, where my home is and which is easier to keep cool. We are getting extra cucumbers as they are nice and juicy so the heatwave is not all bad.
