Friday Video: two Hamsters

What happens when you give two hamsters just one wheel:


Have a nice Wheekend!

p.s. we recommend that you keep hamsters just by themselves (no matter what the pet shop says) they are not herd animals like us guinea pigs.

Introducing Agent Schilling!

Real Name?  Fergie
Secret Agent Name?  Agent Schilling.  My dad named me this after Curt Schilling, a famous baseball pitcher, because I am great at throwing things!  Mostly I just throw my poop over the edge of the cage to get my humans' attention, but sometimes I throw other things, too.  Piles of hay, pellets….my entire pellet bowl.  Throwing things is fun!
Where do you live?  I live in California with my 2 piggy slaves and 2 piggy sisters, Agent Peanut and Agent Kelly.  
Favourite Food?  I only eat healthy food – I can be kind of a snob.  I love my KMS pellets and fresh hay, along with various lettuce types.  But don't stick junk food in my face like apples or fruit – no way! 
Favourite Hobby?  I like to harass my sisters and throw poop.  Sometimes mom calls me an "angry little nugget" when I harass my sisters or give my slaves The Stink Eye. 
Favourite Toy?  Poop?  I sure do love to throw that stuff!  Mom says this is not a good habit for a princess like me to have, but I just can't help myself!

Introducing Agent Kelly!

Real Name?  Wendy
Secret Agent Name?  Agent Kelly, which is short for Machine Gun Kelly.  I LOVE to machine gun rumble around the cage and act angry!
Where do you live?  I live in California with 2 piggy slaves and my 2 piggy sisters, Agent Peanut and Agent Schilling. 
Favourite Food?  I like to eat lots of fresh hay and I sneak Oxbow vitamins as often as I can.  Crunchy food is the best, I don't really like soft stuff like red leaf lettuce. 
Favourite Hobby?  Rumbling!
Favourite Toy?  I love my hay tube.  I carry it around the cage and snuggle with it, and I even use it as a pillow.   Fresh hay tubes are the best.

Introducing Agent Peanut!

Real Name?  Jaina (pronounced Jay-nuh; I am named after a beautiful princess in World of Warcraft!)
Secret Agent Name?  Agent Peanut, thanks to my colors and how cute and little I am….er, was, once upon a time, before all this extra chub showed up!
Where do you live?  I live with 2 piggy slaves and 2 piggy sisters (Agent Schilling and Agent Kelly) in California. 
Favourite Food?  What food isn't good food?!  I love pellets, fresh hay, lettuce, carrots, and especially fresh peppers from the garden.  I will eat anything…I especially love when my mom lets me sneak a piece of apple or lets me lick banana off her fingers – YUM!
Favourite Hobby?  Sleeping and looking cute. 
Favourite Toy?  My cuddle cups.  They are comfy to sleep in, and fun to hide under!

More pigtures needed!

Hi all,

As you probably know we are working on compiling a calendar of some of our agent piggies, which we will be selling. The small profit we will make with this, will be donated to a guinea pig shelter somewhere in the world ;)

So far we got one nomination for a Guinea pig shelter:
- Wind Whistle Warren in Gloucestershire, UK (nominated by Elizabeth)
Of course we wouldn't mind more nominees, so send in the shelter names you think we should donate to

The Calendar is half filled, 6 months covered, 6 more to go, so we need more pigtures, and we are sure you all have some gorgeous piggies that would love to make the calendar at home!

As I know not all of you have cameras that take pigtures that are of a high resolution, and got some lower resolution pigtures send in, I decided to allow two lower quality pigtures for the wall calendar. I think it would be a shame if we cannot let everyone enter, due to low resolution pigtures the printer wont accept! So be informed that in the wall calendar you might find 2 pigtures on one month.
The desk calendar is smaller and this usually fits one lower res pigture, plus it's too small to show two pigtures on one month, so on that one you will see only one pigture per month.

Here are the entries so far:








I have mailed all the people that ordered a calendar so far, if you have ordered but did not get an email, let me know!

Friday Video: How to make an apple pie

Since it is getting colder outside, something warm out of the oven would be really nice. The Gekke Flappies sent us this video on how to make an apple pie. Yum!



Have a nice Wheekend!!

p.s. the Burrow Bunch has made lots of video's starring Petal and Roket. We really like the cute sets and the clever way they are making pigs 'do' stuff. Make sure you check them out on their website or their Youtube channel

Roos, last April, she's the second heaviest now!

She wants to have a small (virtual) party, and as she is only one year old, we found this fun thing to do together with your slave!

Our friend Dobby the Capybara posted this on twitter.
We haven't tried it out yet, but it looks interesting!

Sjeuf loves laptime
Snacks while watching tv
Pretty Bo
P.s. Bo has cateracts in both her eyes. That is why they are blue. She is a bit young to get these, but otherwise fine

I would like to share with you this months calendar piggy, agent Curly, aka Fuzzypeg of the piggyfriends. 

He is one of the gorgeous piggies that featured in this year's undercover guinea pigs (UCGP) calendar. With the making and selling of the UCGP calendar 2012, we made a little profit, that was donated to a piggy shelter. We plan on doing this again for the upcoming year, and we need your help with that!
First of all we like to recieve pigtures of you so we can fill up the calendar.
Read more about sending in your pigture here
Secondly we need people who want to buy the calendar, to adore the piggies standing on their desk, or posing on their wall ;)
When you already know you want to order the UCGP calendar 2013, you can do so by filling in this form, or have a look at the order calendar 2013 tab. Once we got the calendar complete and ready to be printed, you will recieve a request for payment from Mieke, using PayPal.

We hope you will help us out to make this a success again this year!

Cute Contest: Snuggly Igor

Inspired by the humans in the US, we've come up with a new format. It's called a Cute Contest and it basically works like this; we post 2 pigtures and you decide which one is cuter.

We really like the photo's of uncle Igor, so we thought this would be a good excuse to dig up some of his pigtures out of the archives.

Pigture A

Pigtures B
Which one is cuter? A or B?

Our First Ever Competition...



We are very excited to announce our first competition to raise money for a guinea pig rescue, and it’s all down to our new friend Jayne Bartholomew.

You may remember we published our first book review a little while ago well Jayne kindly offered to help us out if we wanted to run a competition to raise money for a rescue.

So together we have come up with a great competition, for just £1 donation you will be entered into a prize draw to appear in the next installment of Space Hoppers due out next Summer. You will also receive a signed paperback copy when it’s published.

All you need to do is fill out your details here. You will get a request for payment from Mieke (pandameisje) and some questions are asked about you we need your name (this may have to be changed slightly to fit the story) whether you are a girl or boy, your colouring and at least one personality trait that way you will recognise yourself in the book.

If possible please send donations in GBP and mark as gift this means we dont have to convert and the rescue will get all the money.

You can enter more than once each £1 donation will be given its own random number (or not so random first entry = 1 etc) when the contest closes on the 31st December 2012 we will use a randomiser to generate the winning number from all the entries. The winner will be notified by email and published on the blog by the 3rd of January (well it is new year and we may be indulging in carrot wine)

As a special favour Jayne has asked could you get your humans to visit her website to see what new books she has coming up and to increase her internet traffic, we think this is only fair as she is putting a lot of her time and effort into helping us with this contest, so if your human forgets wheek at them until they do it!!

Last but not least the rescue we will be helping with this contest is The Potteries Guinea Pig Rescue.

So come on everypig this is a unique chance for you to find fame get your entries in.
