Why are Humans so Dumb???

Mummy phoned up the internet humans who told her she needed a new disk and they would send one in 3 working days.

3 working days came and went no disk, Mummy phoned again disk out of stock they would send another one.

Saturday disk arrives me gets all excited Mummy tries it same problem, Daddy looks its the same disk we had already!!! Stupid stupid humans.

Mummy phones again they will send new disk in 3 working days, back to square one.

As you can imagine me is not a happy pig about this.

Health update me has gained a little weight now 943g and me has allowed Mummy to syringe me some food and some herbal medicine.

Dont worry piggies me is still resisting the syringe most of the time and pushing food out with my tongue.

Remember Raystede

Me was going to post this tomorrow but me is having puter problems and have no internet at home until at least next week.

My puter kept refusing to start so Daddy had to reboot it using the disk and now it wont recognise my modem, thanks Vista. Me is waiting for a new disk to arrive to make my modem work but now they tell me it wont be here until next week.

Me thinks Bill Gates doesnt know how important a working puter is to us guinea pigs.

Sunday is the open day at Raystede rescue so anyone who can get there....get there and get pigtures.

That is a Secret Agent order.

Once again we hope they weather is great and that loads of money is raised.

Medical Update

Now me doesnt want you to worry (trust me Mummy is worrying enough for the world) but those of you who have followed my blog for a while will know me has been causing concern with my unexplained weight loss.

Me has been to the normal vet several times in the last few months only to be told they can find nothing wrong.

Mummy was not happy with this and finally managed to find a vet who had trained with Peter Gurney.

Well yesterday they have run all sorts of tests on me including x-rays and blood tests and what they have found is that me has kidney stones.

Me has 2 stones stuck in the uretha (tubes between kidney and bladder) one from each kidney and it looks like me has 2 more forming again one in each kidney.

Well these stones have caused kidney and liver damage and where they are at the moment they are inoperable.

Me is at home with Mummy and Daddy (and Ghost) now but we dont know how long me has left before me goes to join Agents Thunderbear and Master of Disguise at the bridge.

Mummy is going to try some herbal remedies that have been recommended Hydrangea Root Tincture and Chanca Plus Powder to see if this helps break the stones down.

My weight is now down to 925g and me looks very skinny but me is still keen to get my veggies and of course me makes Mummy's life difficult by fighting the syringe and refusing to co-operate.

Me will give you regular updates on what is happening with me, but me doesnt want you to stop your good secret agent work.

Me still wants to introduce new guest and to hear about different celebrations so keep me updated, me needs you lot to keep me entertained.

Mummy says if anyone has any suggestions please let her know.

Now get back to your secret agent work.

Angelic Alpaca

Lets meet Agent Aerial

Hello Agent F,

Sorry about the delay, a few computer issues!

Real Name - Evil Edna
Secret Agent Name - Aerial
Why did you chose your secret agent name - Will o the wisp character
Age - Nearly 6
Who do you live with - Elizabeth and 2 upstarts
Where do you live - England
Favourite food - Very difficult question, too many to choose from, Parsley or cucumber or romaine lettuce or hay cookies.
Favourite toy - Paper bag filled with hay
Hobbies - Keeping younger pigglies off my hay, grass cutting
Anything else you would like to say - As a senior pig, I want older pigs to have more food and hay than the younger upstarts and for them to do as they are told.

Alpaca pigs are long curly haired pigs that come in many different colours. Mummy has to take me to get my hair cut at the vets or else it gets too tangled. I would have a lovely fringe as well if the pesky little pigs hadn't chewed it off.

[caption id="attachment_802" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Agent Aerial"][/caption]

 Alpacas are long coated rexoid peruvian piggies they should have 2 rosettes that are placed so that the hair comes over the face.  The coat should be soft springy and even with undamaged ends and a parting.

The hair should be unmatted so a comb can easily pass through.

The head should be short and broad with bright eyes and drooping well set ears.

Me says Aerial looks at Angelic as she is.

Guest Number 20

Agent Aerial is a senior lady piggy living in the UK

Her real name is that of an evil TV in an old English cartoon.

That is really easy for the UK piggies to guess but very hard for non UK piggies but have a go anyway

Message from Agent Thorntons

Hi Agent F.

Agent Thortons here.

The rescue that I lived in before becoming a Piggyfriend is having an open day this month to raise money for their cause. It is thanks to them that I and several other piggies and mice live here now so do you think that you could post a link on your blog? It is on Sunday, June 27th. from 10 to 5.

http://www.raystede.org/

Raystede helps all kinds of animals from mice to horses and everything in between. They even find homes for hundreds of battery hens each year and treat and release many injured wild animals and birds. My friend Agent 101 visited the rescue with Algernon Rat when he was staying with us and his photos can be seen on the Remembering Alge blog.

http://rememberingalge.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2010-05-10T23%3A29%3A00%2B02%3A00&max-results=7

We all hope that it is a nice day and that loads of people come along and help many more animals.

Thank you Agent F.

Thanks Agent Thorntons we hope you have lovely weather and that lots of humans come and you raise loads of money!!!

Dashing DEW (Dark Eyed White)

Agent Minty is the nearest me can find to a DEW piggy lets meet him

Hi Agent F,

I would be delighted to join the list of secret agents. Slave will have told you that I am not exactly what you are looking for so if a proper smooth coated DEW contacts you, I will step aside and he/she can take my place. Slave also wishes you good luck in finding a Lunkarya, as she has never seen one except in pigtures.

Slave has lots of pigtures of me but the only one not showing the ginger ring around my left eye is the one that I have attached, which is of me with my best friend, Copper. If this is not suitable, let me know and I will borrow her camera so that Copper can take a better one.

Now as to the questionnaire.

Real name - Polo
Secret Agent Name - Minty
You will guess why I chose this name but I wonder if our overseas friends will know why.
I was born in January 2009, the same as my friend, Copper, with whom I share a pen. We both arrived at our Rodentologists on the same day when we were 5 weeks old and were rehomed here together.
We live at Piggyfriends in S.E.England.
My favourie food is everything except for carrots, which Copper eats for me.
My favourite toy is Copper as we play together all the time when we are not eating.
Hobby? Well I suppose that must be eating and climbing up the wire of our pen shouting for more to eat. I am watchpig for our room and let the others know when Slave is coming with our meals.

My eyes really are dark but Slave's camera makes them look a little red. Probably something to do with all that red from Copper's coat. She can't find the disk to re-install Photoshop on her new computer so I hope that this is OK.

Thank you for inviting me.

Polo Piggyfriend.

Would you believe a DEW should be pure white with no other colours in the hair (dont turn around Agent Minty) the hair should be smooth and the eyes should be black, the ears and foot pads should be pink.

For our overseas friends this is what a Polo sweet is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polo_(sweet)

Agent Minty

Minty is a boy pig who is part of a mixed herd of piggies in the UK

His real name is a popular type of sweet with a hole

That and his secret agent name are big clues for those who also live in the UK, me is not sure if our overseas friends will be able to guess, but have a go

We Have Power..........

OK so we never lost power but you know what me means

We are back online again hurray

Mummy is still fed up as she cant leave the house without getting stuck in road works and she cant understand why they are digging up the same roads that they dug up less than a year ago.

It must be a human thing, why would you want to leave the house unless it was to go to the garden???

Talking of gardens while we have had no internet we have been very busy mowing the lawn!!
