August Calendar Piggies: Mo and Larry

Hi all,

Unfortunately I have no more information about Mo and Larry, aka Agents Pellets and Shyness who are this months Calendar piggies.
Maybe they are to shy to share?
But I wanted to at least share their calendar pigture, and maybe their owner can add some more info about them to this post...

Questing Piggies

We are very excited as for ages we have been waiting for Diablo 3 to come out on the Xbox and we can reveal that in just over a weeks time this will actually happen wheeeks

We have been ready to begin questing for ages, well me and Iron Hamster have, we have decided our hero class and our questing names, I will be Grey Beard the Wizard and Iron Hamster will be Hector the Barbarian, however Agent F1 needs your help to decide what kind of hero to be.

The Hero classes are;

Barbarian
Wizard
Demon Hunter
Witch Doctor
Monk

Now as we don't want any doubling up Agent F1 can be a Demon Hunter, a Witch Doctor or a Monk. So what do you think suits him and what would his hero name be?

Heaviest Pig Revealed

Here is the order lightest first;

1)Ghost (grey 1256g)
2)Agent F1 (Red Head 1279g)
3)Iron Hamster (blonde 1290g)

So did you guess it right?

Some more pigtures to enjoy







A quick reminder about why regular weighing is important (as well as fun)

Weight loss can often be the first sign that a piggy is ill so knowing what is normal for you is important for your human, remember humans don't just weigh, weigh and record so you can monitor your pigs.

Ever since I (Ghost) had bloat my weight has been all over the place sometimes I can lose weight for 2 or 3 weeks before putting it all back on again the next week

Iron Hamster is pretty stable he normally varies by a maximum of 10g up or down a week

Agent F1 is still growing (although we hope he will stop soon) and so his weight is still up a little bit each week

Everypig is different so learn what is normal for each piggy

Cavies with tails?


When we have a new arrival at Piggyfriends, our Slave tries to find out which food he or she had in their previous home so that she can gradually change it over to our own feed. Our new boy, Toffee, was used to having Wagg guinea food, so she bought a small packet of it for him. Here he is with his Wagg. Can you read the words on the packet? It says " Healthy from nose to tail"! Do the people at Wagg think that we have tails or have they used the same label that they put on their dog food?


As you can plainly see, Toffee has no tail and upon careful inspection, neither do any of the rest of the Piggyfriend herd. We suspect that none of our readers have tails either. Deduct points from Wagg for a silly package but Toffee says that their food is yummy.

A Shout Out for another Piggy Blog

We would like to thank our friends the Winky Team for bringing the Billy the Pig blog to our attention (well at least me and Iron Hamster do we think Agent F1 is too young to be reading this wol)

The blog is written by a piggy in Australia who has very strong views on politics and it includes a lot of adult reference, that said it has made me snort my carrot juice out my nose at points.

So in summary this is a very funny blog as long as you are not easily offended and don't mind adult humour.

You have been warned.....

Guinygirlz' not-so-New Cage (DIY)

Slave is pretty sure we posted this before, but maybe slave is just affected by the heat here, cause
we can't find a post about our not so new cage on our blog... So here it is!
We have been enjoying this cage for quite some time now!

---

Our daddy slave has been quite busy lately with a big piece of wood, and many smaller pieces, nails, glue and corner profiles...

So a small preview of our new cage and how it is being made

This is the big piece of wood, it measures around 122 by 125 cms (around 48" by 49")

Dad was clever and used spare Ikea shelves
(slaves used glass shelves in part of their closet)

Here you can see the frame of Ikea shelves together,
which is going to support our new cage,
in the sides slaves can store boxes of pellets, hay and bedding

This is it on top of the smaller pieces of wood, and
maybe the shelve frame (we can't see for sure)

Here strips were glued in the openings,
to hold the pieces of plexiglass (hobby glass)

This is how the cage looks by now, all front strips are in place...

...Should be finished soon, right?
Slave has shared this video before, but maybe you wouldn't mind seeing our cute faces again?
Woopy enters first, followed by Lily, Daisy and Roos. Mind you it's a pretty long video...
And the finished cage, here we get to be in there for the first time:
