F is for Fugly

Those of you who have been following the blog for a while may remember many years ago when Fugly AKA Agent F started the original blog on Wordpress. Following his untimely crossing of the rainbow bridge the blog under supervision of Spooky AKA Agent Ghost was moved to Blogger and the Guinygirlz joined the blogging team, most recently the Piggypals have joined us and together we provide regularish blog posts.

Anyway after the history lesson back to the main event we thought we would share some pigtures of Fugly just to remind everyone what he looked like.

Merry Pigmas Everypig

Look what we found in our stockings





Happy Christmas to our Readers


On behalf of all the Piggyfriends, Otto wishes you a very happy Christmas. We know that many of you have different holidays to us so we wish everyone a happy time whatever they celebrate. As you can see, Algernon Rat is here for the holidays.


My friend, Niamh, has joined me for this photo. Slave knew that I would still but Niamh disappeared amongst the tinsel before she would pose. Unfortunately we do not have an outtake as Slave had to put her camera down before rescuing her from the hearth, which is behind us in the pigture. Don't worry, the fire is not lit.

We hope that you all have a wonderful time with loads of yummy veggies. We were rewarded with parsley for posing for our photos.

If you have any holiday photos, we would love to see them.

Nollaig Shona Dhaiobh. Happy Christmas EVERYONE!

Whee Are Really Excited About Pigmas

Whee have been waiting all year (well me Agent Dave has, Hugo hasn't been born a year yet WOL) for our first Pigmas.

As the humans have neglected to get us stockings we have stole Mummy's socks instead (we did steal clean ones) we are hoping to find them full of goodies on Pigmas Day as we have been (relatively) good all year.

Thanksgiving Pigtures

The following pigtures of Apollo (brown piggy), Dmitri (mostly black piggy), and Dante Wigglebottom (white and black piggy) were taken for the Thanksgiving holiday back in November. Apollo has since passed on, but you can tell he was quite the ham in photo shoots!

Goodbye Agent F1

Hello everypig,

Agent Dave here with some sad news, a couple of weeks ago Mummy and Daddy had to help Agent F1 aka Jim over the rainbow bridge.

At the start of the year Agent F1 developed anal impaction and he lost a bit of weight, Mummy wasn't too worried to start with as she knew how to handle impaction and other than some weight loss F1 was doing fine.

F1 continued to loose weight and Mummy took him to the vet to get his teeth checked, his teeth were fine, however as he was still eating well and losing weight the vet decided to run some blood tests, these test showed that F1 had kidney problems. As F1 appeared to be happy and eating the vet and Mummy decided that the best thing to do would be to keep him at home and happy for as long as possible.

Up until the last few days Agent F1 was up and about, always the first and the loudest to shout for food, he would still get on his back legs and beg for extra food which always worked on Daddy, however he had gotten really thin and bony. For the last few days Agent F1 was not really moving his poops had turned slushy and Mummy was having to clean his bottom and feet as he was just sitting in slushy poop he also appeared to be in pain, which he hadn't seemed to be before. Mummy and Daddy took him back to the vet and the vet agreed that it was time to help him over the rainbow bridge.

F1 was only weeks away from his 5th adoption day which we think means he was actually nearly 6.

We all miss our special little friend.

Goodbye Jim until we meet again.

Here are a few facts about and photos of Jim

1) Jim was named after James T Kirk
2) Jim was up for adoption as apparently he wouldn't live with other pigs. This was not true as Jim lived happily with at least 2 other piggies almost his whole life.
3) Jim was a ridgeback
4) Jim was ginger with a white racing chevron hence the Agent name F1

The Piggyfriends' grass is frozen!

Slave cuts fresh grass for us every day but this morning she came back in and said that it had frozen!

"She offered us these cauliflower leaves instead. Much as we love a cauli leaf it is not the same as a pile of fresh grass but I suppose it will have to do" says Saoirse Piggyfriend in between mouthfuls.

Carter grabs a piece of leaf and rushes to eat it in the privacy of a box before his friends can steal it. "I love cauli," says Carter, " and I am so glad that our friend, Roly, grows lots of it on his farm."

"Well, I suppose there is nothing for it but to join my friends, " says Aoife, " before they have cleared up the lot."

"Don't worry piggies, " says Slave. " I have a whole bagful of leaves for you and maybe the grass will have thawed tomorrow."

Happy Birthday Louis Piggyfriend!

Hello Readers! Louis Piggyfriend here. It is my 6th. birthday today and Slave has given me my very favourite veggie. Sow thistle.





Do you like sow thistle? Slave grows it for us in her veggie garden but it finishes when the warm weather comes to an end. She kept this one growing under a cloche just for my birthday. Wasn't that kind of her?

It is so lovely and juicy that it deserves another photo.

After all that good food, I needed a nap.

"Happy Birthday Louis!" say the Piggyfriend herd.

Friday video: how to train your guinea pig

To do a spin! Hope you are not getting fed up with all our spinning piggies videos. We are now trying to teach our boar Binky to spin as well. In this video we show you how to do it.


At first we thought Binky would not follow the vegetable at all. Raani and Cookie both spin clockwise. Binky would not do that. Then Piggy dad tried to make him follow the vegetable anti clockwise, as you can see in the video Binky can do that pretty well. Now I wonder does he not see the veg well when we try to make him spin clockwise, or does he just like to turn anti clockwise?
