Bo Peep!

Hi All,

This is Agent I, and I'd like to introduce you to the newest Winky team addition.
Her name is Bo. Like Bo Peep, because she is very vocal and she also has a sheep (aka me! *gheghe*)

She is only 5 weeks old and we got her at the shelter. She got loads of pigsonality! She's active and very loud and she is already (after only 3 days being with us) teaching me and Coco how to beg for food.

She weighs 440 grams. Not bad at only five weeks!


Igor is really happy now he has a herd of 2 gorgeous girls (yes that's Igor popcorning)

Lots of wheeks!

Igor, Coco and Bo

Sleeping Method in the Hammock

"Agents Acorn, Godiva and Mango like to sleep in a hammock from time to time. The hammock is typically Agent Mango's favorite place to sleep, but Agents Acorn and Godiva occasionally manage to sneak in a quick snooze!
Step one - Jump or climb into hammock
Step two - curl up on your side
Step three - try not to be woken up by another piggy shoving the hammock around from underneath you!"

Piggy Rescue on TV


Bobtails Rescue on BBC Breakfast news

OK so they were talking about rabbits but they do also rescue guinea pigs in fact the latest of the Surrey Squeakers members came from Bobtails Rescue and nationwide publicity for a family run rescue is great.

Remember those of us in the UK can help raise money for Bobtails simply by using Easysearch as our search engine instead of google, Yahoo etc.

Well done Bobtails!!

Testing

Well some of you may be aware that after doing a microsoft update the blog would no longer let me publish any posts from home, well Agent I and Lil Woop have been putting their brains together and I am hoping we have found solution.

Now instead of using Internet Explorer 9 as my browser I am using Safari and if you can read this it works, only problem is safari is slow so I am only using it to blog.

Now I have a special message for Agent Stargirl we want to see more videos of the other secret agents we hope you have some to share soon.

Hullo secret agent pigs, fellow trainees and human slaves.
Mummy keeps insisting that we need exercise so she has constructed us a play pen. We have an outdoor run but the it is a bit chilly still and we are only delicate wee flowers. We enjoy popcorning and squeaking about our new playpen. There are tubes and boxes and stuff for us to chew and explore. Mummy refuses to put a snuggly bed in yet because she says we will just hide in there. Little bit rude don't you think.
A weight update too, Boomer is 645 grams, Starbuck is 686 grams.

Happy Birthday Iron Hamster

Well as the title suggests today is Iron Hamsters birthday, as he came from a breeder we know his exact birthday the only problem is its not a memorable day like my official birthday and Mummy has to check her diary to make sure she gets date right.

Iron Hamster is a whole year old today, so raise you glasses of carrot wine to Iron Hamster my little brother, who is not a very good pillow.

Sleeping Method on a Sock


Agent Java

"Agent Java would like to share her research regarding the On-A-Sock sleeping method, which she is demonstrating here
Step one - settle into a cozy corner of your cage
Step two - lean on your side
Step three - rest your head and chin using a stuffed sock as a pillow (may also substitute with stuffed animal plushies, other piggy, etc)
Step four - keep one eye open so slaves can't sneak over to take pictures while you are asleep!"

Who is Bigger Pig or Human


Mystery Agent Bam

Mystery Agent Bam shows us that not all humans are giant scary things in fact the human he has found is quiet small and cute in a non furry kind of way.

Mystery Agent Bam is a boy piggy living as part of a mixed herd in Illinois his real name is another sound you might see in the early batman cartoons remember when the noises came up in a speech bubble?

He weighs in at 1099grams. He was born on 7-24-08 with his sister Alana. His mom is Amanda. He is a sweet boy that has a front arm that he doesn't really use and he has a tilted head from a bad infection and he has one eye that is not right. Amanda was used at a breeder pig and there was alot of interbreeding done, which is why Alana had heart problems and Agent Bam has alot of medical problems as well. Agent Bam Was also born with only one ball(don't laugh) and he has never developed stud tail he has always been like a baby pig...He has never grown up:) He is one sweet boy. He loves all food. and he loves to poop in his hidey hut

My Crib; Outside Playtime


Hiding Out in the Tent

When the weather is good we are allowed outside to munch the yummy fresh grass and dandelions.

Outside we have a little 6 sided run shaped like a polygon? the 6 panels are held together by long metal spikes that go into the ground and then a netting is placed over the top.

As you can see this run is not secure and nasty things like birds and cats could get to us piggies for this reason we are never allowed out unsupervised mummy or daddy will always be in the garden watching us.

In our play pen we have a tent for hiding in (mummy cut the bottom out to stop us sitting in wee) we have a tunnel that gets removed when we wee in it, 2 plastic tubes that are too short for us to sit and wee in but we can run through them or sit with our heads out one end and butts out the other, we also have a water bottle and a bowl of our normal food and some hay rolls. We tend to hide in the tent eating grass and ignoring all the other food we have in there.


Venturing Out for Fresh Grass


As you can see Mummy makes sure we have shade in the run so we dont get too hot and she uses towels to give us more shade as the sun moves Mummy moves our towels around as well.

We love outdoor time


Well Earned Rest

Sleep Research: Igor's Nose

My specialty is sleeping with my nose up in the air. Going through the archives I noticed there are many pigtures of me sleeping with my nose placed higher than the rest of my body.
Ah well..   did it, done it, will be doing it a lot more I guess.

Just did it ;-) (yesterday)
Sleeping together with Suus and Yaya, back in 2008
Love this house *zzzzzzzzzzzzzz*
On J's lap in 2009
I was wondering, are there other piggies out there who do this? And do you think it is a texel thing, because our build is so stubby?

Agents of the Month May

Well it was too hard to chose just one or two agents this month and so we would like to announce that the Agents are all those piggies who took part in the herd challenge too many to list here but you know who you are.

Special mentions go to Agent Java for the original challenge idea, Agent Big Red for his devotion to food and The Surrey Squeakers for the great idea of bending the rules congratulations everypig.

Flying Pigs and Piggies

Agent Cannonball here. Mummy went to a zoomie called "Flying Pig Marathon" and brought back many piggy goodies. The mug is cool but she needs to be better with the veggie refills.

Sleeping Method No Legs



For this method you need a comfy space where you can curl up with your body supported, once you have got comfy hide all your legs and feet.
