Silly Mummy.......

She thought putting down pink rugs would stop me and Ghost from glanding her carpet.

Ghost has overcome this problem instead of trying to roll up the rugs, he know flips the end up and then runs under it.

Then he can put his butt straight on THE CARPET!!!

heeheheheehehe evil laugh

It also helps with the human exercise plan as Mummy has to get off her bum, lift the rug and chase him out again.

Way to go Ghost

Happy Harlequin

Yep as you can see from the pigture Agent Bumblebee looks just like a bumblebee a good example of the harlequin markings.

The breed standards for a harlequin say the the head should be half black half yellow and the body should have equal distribution of black and yellow and black/yellow mixture.

Any white means you cant win (no fair, nothing wrong with yellow and white me says)

Agent Bumblebee joined her herd from a Pet Co shop where her Daddy feel in love with her spitfire attitude, she was smallest pig and yet the bossiest (way to go Bumblebee)

Me thinks she was the inspiration for the giant Bumblebee guinea pig in South Park.

Rainbow Bridge Disney Dog

Sad news report today.

Yesterday Mummy's parents had to help their dalmation dog Disney over the rainbow bridge.

They adopted Disney when he was 1 year old and he has been with them 14 years, me is told that is a very good life span for a large pure bred dog.

Disney was a rubbish guard dog as he loved everybody who ever visited, when he first met Daddy he jumped up put his paws on Daddy's shoulders and looked him in the eyes. (Daddy is 6 foot tall so that is a big dog)

Mummy says he was very silly as Dalmations are bred for stamina not intelligence (they used to run alongside coaches so they are very muscular dogs)

For the past year or so Disney had been suffering with dementia but in the end he developed stomach cancer and it was kinder to let him go to the rainbow bridge.

Goodbye Disney Dog now free of all problems

This Himi is a Her-i

Agent Thunderbear is a Himalayan guinea pig.

She is not show quality as she has a white heart shaped smudge on what should be the dark part of her nose, she passed this onto her children, because of this her breeder found her a new home with the computer nerds.

Breed standards for Himalayans they have a white body with black or chocolate coloured points.

The points are found on the nose (known as the smut) and the feet the ears should also be dark coloured.

Himalayans are born white and then the points develop as they get older.

The points can also fade due to bright lighting and become lighter when warm and darker when cold.

They have ruby eyes.

Stormy Weather

Here in the UK we are being hit with nasty storm, the weather humans say we have winds of up to 85 miles an hour and we have lots of rain.

It has been very noisy over night keeping us piggies awake as the wind howls down the chimney and made the letter box flap (me kept thinking me had surprise visitor)

Me hopes all the other UK piggies and their humans are OK, we have no damage (touchwood, why silly human superstition)

Me also hopes our international friends are not suffering with bad weather conditions.

All agents please provide weather reports for your area, this is important information in case any piggies wish to go travelling.

Tricking Mummy

We made Mummy feel really guilty.......

During the night we dragged the food bowl into our bedroom area underneath the mezzanine floor, we then emptied it on the floor.

To really confuse Mummy we then dragged the empty bowl back to where she had left in.

When she got up in the morning we stood round the bowl looking sad.

She felt so guilty she got us a new bowl of pellets and extra fresh food to make up for it.

When she changed the fleece in the evening she found all the food................

We are in the dog house (which means Daddy got out)

heeheeheehee

Chunky Chocolate

Agent Thornton is a Self Chocolate, his mummy says he looks like a chocolate cake with cherries for eyes, better not let Mummy see him she might eat him. (just kidding)

The breed standard for a Self Chocolate says the colour should be like a good dark chocolate bar and the eyes should be dark ruby.

Show faults include the appearance of lighter creamy hairs especially around the face.

Here he is

Guest Number 7

Agent Thorntons is a boy from a mixed herd in the UK

His agent name is a famous chain of shops in the UK (one of mummies favourites)

His mummy says he is a bit porky but would be good at flattening enemy agents by rolling on them. (we wont tell you what he said about her)

Agent Thorntons came from a local shelter and has never told his Mummy about his past (a truly dedicated agent)

His real name is also a variety of confectionary that mummy is very fond of especially the giant version, it is also something humans use to keep their clothes from falling off.

Hope me has confused you enough get guessing

Remember Remember the 5th of November

Why?? Does it have anything to do with guinea pigs?? No!! so forget it.

OK seriously...........

For those of you who might not know here in the UK the humans celebrate something known as Guy Fawkes Night or Bonfire Night on the 5th of November.

Many, many years ago a human called Guy Fawkes plotted to blow up the houses of parliment, the plot was foiled and so every 5th November the humans celebrate.

They light great big bonfires and burn scarecrow like things called Guys, they also let of lots of fireworks.

Fireworks are noisy and make bright lights.

Me is a big brave indoor piggy so fireworks dont scare me, but some of you guys may be scared by fireworks (me knows lots of dogs are and they are way bigger than piggies)

If you are scared make sure your human lets you stay in a place where you feel safe (indoors being cuddled gets my vote) and also where you are sheltered from the worst of the noises and bursts of light.

If you are big and brave like me enjoy the show.

Me Didnt Know

Last night Daddy held something out to me, it looked like a finger but it smelt really nice so me licked it and it tasted nice.

Daddy took it away and then bought it back again for me.

Me got worried Ghost might want it so me grabbed it hard in my teeth and tried to pull it away with me.

Daddy screamed like a girl. (He does that ALOT)

It was his finger!! he had been dipping it in apple juice for me.

Stupid Daddy grrrrrr

Ready Teddy Go!!

Agent Cannonball is a Teddy type of piggy (ahh sounds so cute)

Teddies are considered a rare breed and as such they only have a guide show standard not a full standard.

Teddies are similar to Rexes although their hair is straight, shorter and plusher than a Rex.

There are 2 types of Teddies the US teddy and the Swiss or Ch Teddy, can anyone tell me the difference as me dont know.

Over to Agent Cannonball............

Me is Agent Cannonball and me is a black Teddy piggy! We Teddies look Rex piggies so you have look carefully to tell between a Rex piggy agent and a Teddy piggy agent. We both have short, dense coats that make us look very fuzzy and very handsome. Rex agents have crinkly whiskers while we Teddies have longer and straighter whiskers. Teddies have longer tummy fur and have soft fur all over, like a teddy bear!

Me was the last piggy at a pet shop. Me was trying to make myself look small in a corner when The Big Hand picked me up and put me with two strange piggies for a little bit. They sniffed me and that was okay but then the fat golden one tried to sit on me! A few months later I am bigger and I shake my big rump at golden piggy. There is another piggy with crazy hair that is my best friend forever. He has black and white whorls all over and likes to move the pigloo bases around for our stealth operations. If I am taken away from my piggy friend I squeak so loud my ears flap and The Big Hand brings me my friend!

Me is very good at hiding in my carrot cube. When I hear something happen - door shut, fridge opens - I burst out of my cube squeaking at full speed into a pigloo base! Then me remains perfectly silent so nobody knows where me is. Me lets the humans know I am on full alert and watching them at all times!
