A Piggy A-Z. E is for Edvard Munch

Hi!  I'm Edvard Munch, and I live with the Prairie Pigs in Western Canada.  I'm named after a famous Norwegian painter. I'm not very artistic, but I am excellent at munching, so I think that might be why Slave thought that was a good name for a piggy.

Here I am, admiring the most famous painting by that other Edvard Munch, the human one.  It's called The Scream: that's how I feel when the snacks are late!

Speaking of snacks and munching, here I am enjoying my favourite treat: yellow pepper.  Yum!

And here I am with my pal Guinness.  We live next door to each other and share a hay rack.  Guinness is a very calm and thoughtful older piggy who is happy to share his boarly wisdom with me while we are munching away on either side of the hay rack.  His eyes really are that colour!

Now that you've heard from one Prairie Pig, stay tuned for some of my friends who will be reporting in soon when the piggy alphabet project gets to their letter of the alphabet.  Faith and Guinness are already working on their own stories!

In the meantime, are there any other "E" piggies out there?  Esmeralda or Ezekiel possibly?  Check the "Contribute" button at the top of this page --- it's easy and fun to post your own story.  Every piggy deserves their moment in the sun, and who doesn't love looking at pigtures of other people's piggies???

Piggy A-Z: E for eggplant (shaped)

Guess who's the vegetable and who is the piggy?

We think eggplant, or aubergine as we call it, is not suitable for piggies, but a healthy piggy should be eggplant shaped ;)

P.s. Doesn't Raani have the cutest bum? Signed slave to the Guinygirlz, Mikey

Friday Video: We Have a New Toy

Mummy got us a new toy for no reason at all which is rather confusing but nice, here is a little video of me and Dave investigating it. Hugo was too busy being naughty to appear in the video.

The boys playing with their new toy

Hot, Hot, Hot

Like the Piggyfriends we have been finding it too hot at the moment (and you don't very often hear that about England).

Agent Dave is finding it particularly bad as he is essentially a big ball of fluff.

Mummy has taken some measures to help us keep cool, Agent Dave is relaxing next to an ice pack wrapped in a tea towel, Mummy changes the ice pack in the morning and the evening.

During the day Daddy is pulling the curtains to keep the worst of the sunshine out and to stop the heat coming through the glass.

Mummy has added ice cubes to our drinking water to keep that cooler for longer.

And of course we are getting plenty of cool veggies.

Our Pigpenpals have sent us some photos.

We have been sent some photos by our Pigpenpals, Rin, Maki and Nico, who live in Connecticut. As it has been too hot to go out on missions or even into the garden to send in reports, we thought that we would share the photos with our readers.
They were all weighed the other day and above is mama Rin on the scale. She is growing nicely after being rescued.
And here is her daughter, Maki.
And above is her sister, Nico, trying to escape the scale. They are growing up fast and are very fluffy so it is hard to tell which end is which.

And below they all are exploring their home. That is Maki sitting on top of one of their houses.
We love hearing from our Pigpenpals. We hope to send in some reports when it is safe to go outside again. For now we are going back to napping as close to our fans as possible.

It is too HOT!!!

We have a heatwave here at Piggyfriends. The weatherman said that it is hot all over England as this horrible weather has come up from Europe. We should be out on the lawn picnicking on the yummy grass but it is too dangerous for piggies to be out in the heat.

"I am not going out on any missions today, " says Agent Diva aka Mimi. " It is far too hot to do anything except nap in this corner near one of Slave's fans."

" Come and hide under this house Cosmo," says Casper Dangermouse. " Tyrion might see you and send us out."
" There is no danger of anyone being sent out today," say Magnus and Ivan Fluffypig. " Tyrion is fast asleep in the other house. Let us all nap until this horrible heat goes away."
