Diary of an old lady 27-30 March 2015

I am writing to you from a wonderful place called the rainbow bridge, I have just arrived there. It is lovely to see all my friends again that I have met in my long life only 17 days short of 7 years. The food here looks marvellous, Can't wait to dig in, and all piggies here are happy and pain free!

Last friday I did not want to eat anymore. I was taken to the vet and my lungs did not sound good. Antibiotics and a painkiller were prescribed.
As I was not eating a lot by myself I got some pellet mush from my daddy slave, yesterday I still let him know he was going to slowly feeding me, by tugging on the syringe with the mush.
The other piggies were very sweet taking care of me. They were taking turns lying close to me.
 Here you see Roos and me

And Peaches and me...

Today when mommy slave (Mikey) came home from work she found me lying on my side, having convulsions and in obvious pain. My tummy was very swollen.
Slave rushed me to the vet, calling them on the way to the car, and texted dad she was taking me to the vet now. In the short car drive she told me we were going to the vet and he would help me with the pain. Both slaves were there when I left for the bridge. Dad must have cycled really hard to be there in time, but I was glad he was there too!

If I, as an old lady, can give you an advice: just keep munching! It worked very well for me.

Dear Spooky, I loved having you as my long-distance boarfriend. Thanks for all your sweet presents and words. I hope to see you someday here at this wonderful place, but take your time with your slaves and piggypals first, I will be waiting for you...

Love, to you all!


These are guinea pigs 
Diego, Ferris, and Max. 
They love playing and eating! 

Hope you Enjoy!

Otto helps the birds

Our pigsitter came home for the weekend and he helped our Slave give all the long haired Piggyfriends a haircut and a shampoo.

You would not know that I am a Peruvian after my haircut. My Agent name of Mystery hardly suits me today!

Slave puts all the hair into little baskets for the birds to use for their nests. Here is mine. At the end of the year, she cleans out her nest boxes and many of them have Piggyfriend hair inside.

Here is another pigture of me from the other side. Which is my best side?

Diary of an Old Pig 20th- 22nd March 2015

20th March 2015

Well my predictions were right mummy opened the curtains this morning and the sky was just like it is most days in England cloudy and overcast and did we see anything of a solar eclipse?  Not a chance!!

The night was just as bad the curtains were closed and when mummy went outside to see if she could see the super moon and guess what...nothing!!!

21st March 2015

A good day to be a pig, mummy bought us some strawberries and grapes we were only allowed a couple of each due to the sugar content as you can see from the pigtures this old Pig can move super fast when food is involved.

22nd March 2015

Well it must be nearly spring mummy has had her once a year haircut and then so he didn't feel left out she cut Barbies hair do instead of looking like a blonde hippy his sensible hair which is coloured like mine in now on show. Weird how he is blonde on top and grey underneath.

Winky team takes a break

After doing Friday Video's for almost 3 years (since april 2012) we decided it was time for a break. We loved doing it, but it's going to be a very busy time for us since our staff will be moving house. Also, we kinda lost inspiration for finding new video's out there (there is is plenty).

We wish you well, we might even pop in every now and then

Bo, Ties, Aagje and Esk

Diary of an Old Pig 19th March 2015

My dearest Lil Woop sorry to hear you had to go to the vet and that your toothies are not behaving themselves here is a big snuggle from me...

So onto todays news or really tomorrows, you see tomorrow is an exciting day to be a human apparently there are 2 big events happening a partial solar eclipse and a super moon.

According to the news the solar eclipse will occur between 09:00 and 09:50, so what is a solar eclipse? Its when the sun disappears behind the moon and it gets dark during the day, as a pig I fail to see what is exciting about that I mean looking out the window today (or several other days recently) the sun is behind a cloud and the world is dull and gloomy so making it even gloomier is not something that appeals to me, I want the sun out so I can go eat fresh grass.

Onto the second news the super moon what this means is the moon is really close (well not that close but closer) to earth meaning it looks big, the problem with this when you are a pig? It happens at night and when it starts getting dark the humans close the curtains and we cant see out, to be fair this will happen after dinner and we will most likely be napping.

My view is if you cant eat it, drink it or hump it you may as well ignore it

Dairy of an old lady...

Dearest Ghost,

I really liked your idea of writing a diary in our old days. As I will turn 7 halfway April, I decided to join in once in a while. Today was a rather traumatic day though as I was taken to the vet...

Your lil'Woop

18 March 2015

Today me and new girl Peaches were loaded into the travel basket and taken for a short ride. We were taken to the VET! Reason for that is that I broke my bottom teeth again... first one of them and a day later my bad tooth as well.
The vet complimented me by saying I looked really good for my age. Apparently my bad tooth is split lenghtways, which means it is like a bunch of twigs in the root, pieces will easily break off. For really young pigs they could try to remove the tooth, so it can grow back in one piece again, but luckily I'm too old for that! As I can still eat and kept my weight, slaves just have to keep an eye on me, as the teeth grow back slowly. Slave E was really sweet so far cutting up veggies for me and even cutting the science selective pellets in smaller pieces. But I can already manage normal sizes by now, so it's no longer needed...
The vet also complimented my feet which looked really good, no bumblefoot or other sores, not sure why he gave all the compliments while I was screaming my head of... I tend to stress out when going to a vet.
As Peaches joined me purely for company, she was also given a check up, gheghe. The vet really loved her color saying he rarely saw such pretty dark cream color in a guinea pig. She looked really healthy, good sounding lungs, strong muscles, clean coat. Not bad for a girl found outside, huh?

I feel we deserve some extra veggies today for being such good girls!

P.s. Bérke gave our Mikey the stink eye for taken his girls away, he was really glad to get us back... Brrrrr *rumblerumble*

Happy St Patricks Day

So its 17th March which means it's time to go green, no not saving the planet, although there is nothing wrong with that, I mean literally go green or in the case of piggies eat green...

Green means grass and that is what we had for dinner

Orange is also popular today so chase your grass down with some carrot wine :)

Diary of an Old Pig

So you all know that in approximately 2 weeks I will be 6 in light of this fact I have decided it's time to record my life so a regular feature if this blog will be my diary and when I locate the camera it will also have pigtures.

March 16th 2015

Weather is raining humans had been hoping for some sun so that we could go out and mow the lawn,  no such luck we are inside with heating on.
Food so far today dried food and hay as soon as the humans pull the curtains we will start shouting for fresh veggies.

Achieved lots of napping and eating

Candle Lighting

All of us at Piggyfriends were pleased to join in the annual Candle Lighting for Peter Gurney.
Gandalf helped our Slave to light our candles and you can see his photo here. Slave picked him as he is almost guaranteed to sit still and she is not up to running after escaping porkers at the moment.
We remembered very many Piggyfriends past as well as dear human friends, including Peter plus a host of other small ones who have lived here down the years.
We hope that our lights will shine out to those gathered at the Rainbow Bridge and tell them that we love and miss them all.

9 March 8 PM: Peter Gurney Memorial

The Peter Gurney Annual Candle Lighting Memorial is almost here! Please
light a candle on March 9th at 8 p.m. in your time zone. For ten years,
candles have been our way to remember the remarkable Peter Gurney, who
was so generous in sharing his knowledge about guinea pigs. Many of us
have his books or continue to consult his webpages, and some of us here
were lucky enough to know or meet him. When you light your candle, it
will also be a memorial to all of the two- and four-footed friends we've
lost through the years. We like to think of our lights being visible at
the Rainbow Bridge and letting our loved ones know they remain in our
hearts always.

Please comment below, post the the GPDD (www.gpdd.org) digest
or let Audrey (agbmcmd@yahoo.com) know afterwards
where you lit your candle so she can compile the annual list
of how many places joined in. Feel free to tell others as well, so we
can have as much participation as possible!

Just a pretty pigture

I haven't been able to post any special pigtures lately whilst I am recuperating but our son, the pigsitter, came down to visit for the weekend and he took a few pigtures. I thought you might like to see one so here are Agents 88, Mouse and Mystery enjoying a snack. Aka Lola, Angelina and Otto Piggyfriend. Otto poses no mystery at the moment as he had a haircut and we can see his dear little face again.
