It is hard work being an Agent

Agent Plantagenet has a well earned nap after searching high and low for reports.

It is just as well that he has his trusted right paw pig, Rafferty, to keep a wary lookout whilst he recovers.

Application to become an Agent

I would like to apply to be an Undercover Agent please. My real name is Salsa but I think Agent Usain Bolt would be appropriate due to my amazingly fast running speed. I could make very quick getaways. There is also another reason why I might be a useful Undercover Agent. I have a body double in my herd! Caramac is exactly the same colour, with the same shaped face and same shaped ears. The only difference is our size. I should have reached my adult weight by now but with all this running around I burn off too many calories! I am working on this. More veggies please...

Agent Confetti

I, Agent Confetti, have just returned from my first mission, which took me to <edited>.  I brought back this treat for my mom and dad.

Introducing Agent

Maybe he already was agent weight when he came to us, at least he has been in all the recent (back to august 2014) records slave could find about his weight, eitherway his Agent introduction is way overdue!

Slaves had a bit of trouble on deciding on a (nice) Agent name for our Berke. He can be a bit of a scaredy pants, but they did not want to give him that Agent name, so they settle for this one...

Introducing Agent Brave Sir Robin, this video says it all we think...

We have a new Agent

We have had an applicant for the post of Undercover Agent. Here he is. His name is Eddie and, as you can see, he is a very resourceful piggy, employing a whole cosy for a pillow.

We think that he will be an excellent addition to our band of Agents.

He has chosen the name of Agent Confetti as he likes to wave an entire piece of shredded newspaper when requesting food. As paper shredders ourselves, we had no hesitation in accepting his application.

Welcome Agent Confetti. We look forward to receiving reports from you very soon.

A scary day at Piggyfriends.

" There is a lot of noise going on outside,"
says Niamh Piggyfriend. " What can it be?
" I think that this is a job for an Undercover Agent," says Roisin. " You just hide in that box and I will ask Susie."

" Hey, Susie! Can you stop eating for a moment and go and
 find out what is happening outside? "
"OK," replies Susie, " but do you realise that by chewing up
our cardboard boxes, you are making our homes
look messy for the photos?"

Morphing into Agent Gemini, Susie leaps from her pen
 and climbs up to look out of the window.
" There is a terrible storm raging outside and the noise
 is the rain on the roof. Don't forget that our new room has a glass roof."
" Oh dear," cries Susie, " Our flag has been damaged!
The end of it has been torn away. Slave will have to buy a new one!"

May Queen at last!

Although our hedge is slow to produce its mayflowers, Slave's husband found some when he was out and picked them for me.

Wasn't that kind?

Slave said that it didn't matter if I ate some leaves. She and her friends used to eat them when they were little and called it the "bread and cheese tree". She had a taste of mine and didn't think that they tasted much of bread and cheese but maybe taste buds change as one grows older. I don't know what bread and cheese tastes like anyway.

Love to you all from Petunia aka Agent Flower.

Tomatoes beware!

We heard that tomatoes look very fetching in a girl's beard. What do you think? New summer trend?

Not quite a May Queen

When Slave read my post the other day, she was upset at my disappointment at not being able to be the May Queen on 1st. May. She takes special care of the Piggyfriend Pensioners and we all get an extra cucumber allowance. At 6 years and 9 months, I am the oldest piggy here.

There are still no blossoms on our hawthorn hedge, although there are lots of tiny buds and her friend had no blossom either. Slave says that this has been a strange Spring with some plants flowering very early and some late.

She says that, in France, people give each other bunches of Lily of the Valley on May 1st but the ones in the garden are not in flower yet either and they would have been dangerous to have in my pigture as they are toxic.

So she picked this big bunch of forget me nots from the garden and took this pigture. I was really pleased and tried to eat the flowers. Slave says that they are harmless but not really piggy food so I had some dandelions when I went back to my pen.

A belated Happy May Day from Petunia Piggyfriend.

No Mayflowers, no Friday video, what is the world coming to?

Agent Flower reporting.

Every year, our Slave picks one of us girls to be May Queen and she gathers mayflowers from the garden and makes a pretty pigture.

Spring was cold and late this year and, although she has searched diligently for the appropriate blossom, she has been unable to find any.

I was going to be May Queen this year and I am so disappointed. Here is our pigture from last year, when, as you can see, Florence was surrounded by mayflowers. This is not fair. ...grumble...grumble.

We do not have a Friday video today but we thought that baby Tijger's video of her learning tricks was so good that it deserves a second look. Slave has watched it over and over and we hope it is not giving her ideas. None of us are young enough to learn tricks.

Here is the link. Do watch it again.

Slave is going to collect newspapers tomorrow from a kind lady who saves them for our pens. She has hawthorn in her garden ( mayflowers are the blossom from this tree ) and maybe she has some for me. Paws crossed.
