New Years Resolutions

On the 31st December the humans have a traditon of making resolutions for the following year.

A resolution is like a promise.

Me has come up with a few resolutions for next year.

1) Me will try not to pull Ghost's ear no matter how tempting it is.

2) Me will try not to bite Daddy's fingers, even when he sticks them through the cage and wiggles them.

3) Me will try not to scare Mummy any more and put lots of weight on

What are your resolutions?

Riotious Ridgeback

Agent Dinosaur (has the ridge down her back like dinosaur get it??)

Ridgebacks are a rare breed variety, the breed standard is that they have a smooth short coat with with a ridge of hair standing erect from the base of the neck to the hips. 2 rosettes are allowed to form the ridge.

Here is Agent Dinosaurs story........................

Her story is: she was left at a local feed and seed place here in Moline named Teskes. They had her for over a month before I found out about her. She was living with a bunny there and they had them in a plastic cage on the cement floor. Aubrey's little feet and body was soo cold when we came across her. She was sooo scared! We are guessing she is over a year old. When Andy picked her up he wouldnt put her down! Cause she was soo cold. So we walked up to pay for her.(they wanted $9.99) the boy at the counter said "finally that little boys got a home" Well first of all he was not a he!! she was a she!! poor Aubrey, they didnt even know she was a girl. When we went there to buy crickets for our toad we were not expecting to find little Aubrey... we were riding our two person moped!! so I held her in a little brown box while Andy drove us home. She probaly was scared to death on that moped! She lived by herself at first here at
Misfitville.
Our old gal Anastasia was getting worse.. (she was our paralyzed piggie) and she lived with our little Athena who loved to sit with her front paws on Anastasia's back. They would sit like that for over a hour at a time. It was soo darn tootin cute! So when Anastasia passed we moved Aubrey in with Athena. Anastasia got to know Aubrey well before she passed because the last two weeks of Anastasias life she live in a small kids swiming pool with soft towels under her and we would put different girl piggies in to eat dinner and snacks with Anastasia, and Aubrey would curl up to Anastasia and purr.
After Anastasia passed Little spit fire Athena wouldnt accept any other piggie to live with after Anastasia passed... we prayed that Athena would take a liking to little Aubrey. Well it ended up that it was a match made in heaven! they took to each other and have been best friends ever since!! So that is how little Aubrey came to be here at Misfitville:)

OK we may have given her identity away but we love the story and the piggy code of honour means we wont tell anyone else the secret.

Special Update Whee Have Snow

Well here in my little corner of the UK the snow has fallen overnight and settled, not much at the moment about piggy tummy height but more is on the way.

This is too early for Christmas we suspect it will all be gone by the day.

Ghost has never seen snow before, me has told him it is cold and wet and to be glad he is indoors, it is however very pretty to watch through the window.

Agents please submit weather reports for your region, so any pig wishing to travel knows what to expect.

A Pigmas Song

Dashing round the cage
Messing up the hay
Round and round we go
Wheeking all the way
We make the cage bars ring
With our teeth so white
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A wheeking song tonight

Piggy pigs, piggy pigs
Wheeking all the day
Oh what fun it is to eat
A great big mound of hay

Piggy pigs, piggy pigs
Wheeking all the day
Oh what fun it is to eat
A great big mound of haaaaaaaaaaaaaay

Wheeeeeeeeeeek

Round of applause

Hunting Presents

Mummy made the mistake of leaving me unsupervised last night while she emptied the washing machine.

When she came back me had escaped from our play area, before she manage to get me back in the play area me did some present hunting.

Me can report there are no presents behind or under the sofa and chair or in the understairs cupboard.

All me did find was 3 rolls of unopened wrapping paper.... this does not bode well for presents.

Me thinks my present may be hiding in the garage but me cant verify this, special agent piggy that me is, me has been defeated by the mighty lock of yale, besides which its cold out there!!!

Double Dutch

Agent Badger; Interviewed by Agent I;

Since it is our mission to take over the world (our motto; Today the living room, tomorrow the world!), Agent F has started recruiting new special agents. Me and Agent F(an american crested himself) encourage a multi-cultural staff, so pigs from around the world were encouraged to join us. Agents that have joined our herd so far are; Agent A (Agouti),   Piggy Galore (Satin),   Agent whorlwind (Abby),   Agent Patchwork (Tricolor),   Agent Big Red (Self Red),


Our newest recruit is Agent Badger and Agent F has asked me to check him out because he told agent F that he was a Dutch Pig (since I am from the Netherlands too)

 

Welcome new special Agent, state your name, age and special powers, please.

 Thank you Agent I. I note that previous new agents have not revealed their real names until readers of Agent F's blog have had the chance to guess so I will keep my real name in reserve but I can tell you that I am 4 years old. My special ability is camouflage as I can sneak around in shadows and in the half light.



So, Agent Badger, which part from the Netherlands are you from?


Well, I have to admit that I am not really Dutch but my colour is so named as we resemble the black and white Dutch rabbits.

*shock* Are you telling me you're not from the Netherlands?? Hm.. I guess that is just like Agent F, him being an American crested although he has never set a paw outside the UK.. silly humans. Can you tell me more about the dutch breed (unlike me and the rest of the winky gang, who were just born in the netherlands..)
Pure bred Dutch piggies are white with patches of, most commonly, black or red although other colours are allowed. We have coloured patches around our eyes with a white blaze down to our noses, a broad white band around our middles and our rear end is the same colour as our patches.

Thank you very much for the information, I'm sure you'll make an excellent special agent. Especially with your ability to take on different nationalities. Agent dismissed!

Agent badger is a black and white dutch guinea pig.

The breed standard for dutch guinea pigs says they are hard to breed as the they need round cheek markings as near to whiskers as possible but not touching them, a white wedge shape blazed along the nose tapering to between the ears, no coloured hairs behind the ears.

The body is divided in 2 by saddle markings white at front black at the rear this should be a straight line.

The back feet should have ideally one white stop per foot (white marking) this ends halfway between the toe ends and the heel of the foot.

The ears should be a solid colour.

And humans think its easy being a guinea pig, they must be mad.

Guest Number 10

Agent Badger

Agent Badger is a boy guinea pig part of a mixed herd in the UK

His real name can be added to water to make a drink that is good for humans and guinea pigs, it is also a name of a common crop plant.

He was rescued with him family from a filthy cage in a garage (my supplies live in the garage not me)

His special agent skill is camouflage as he can sneak about in the dark.

Guessing hats on

Indoor Trees.........

Not here.

Me heard Mummy and Daddy say they wouldnt have one this year as me and Ghost live where the tree normally goes.

Daddy said tree would have to stay in attic (whats an attic and how did tree get there???)

Daddy has made what he is calling a Fugly grotto, as far as me can tell this is just coloured fairy lights round the humans front door strange.............

Mummy has a card tree, its not a real tree, its not even green!!! Its gold and has lots of hoops on it for cards, it must be for my birthday cards coz there is no way the humans will get that many.

Me remembers from last year that the cards are low enough for me to eat the bottom ones heeeheee

Indoor Trees........

Not here, Mummy and Daddy decided they wouldnt have one this year as me and ghost now live where the tree used to sit.

Daddy said tree would have to stay in attic (whats an attic and how did tree get there??)

We have what Daddy is calling a Fugly grotto, as far as me can tell this is just coloured fairy lights round the humans front door strange........

Mummy has a card tree, but its not a real tree, its not even green!!!
Its gold and has all these hoops on it for cards.

It must be for all my birthday cards coz the humans wont get that many cards.

Me remembers from last year the cards are near enough to the floor for me to eat the bottom ones heeeheee

Its My Birthday This Month

Me will be 3 years young.

Mummy doesnt know my actual birth date but she knows its towards the end of December so she has chosen 25th December as my official birthday as its easy to remember.

Me can see what she means everywhere you look there are fairy lights, decorated trees and presents, although all the humans keep talking and singing about something called Christmas (that doesnt sound anything like Happy Birthday Agent F)

Me is setting all you agents a special mission, me wants to hear reports (see photos/videos) of any strange behaviour your humans are showing.

Feel free to post in the comments section (it asks for email address but you dont need to fill that in if you dont want to) or if you have a longer article you want me to publish email it to me and me will make it into a blog post for you.

So everybody get spying
