Here are a few older pigtures featuring (from left to right) Coppy, Cinnamon and Sharky posing with a watermelon from the slaves veggie garden. Our humans particularly like this pigture because whee are all still bigger than the watermelon, which is oddly small (or so we thought at the time). This didn't last for long though, because the watermelon ended up growing bigger faster than whee did, although whee certainly did our best to keep up!

Here's a video of us playing around during our out of cage time! Whee enjoy getting a chance to stretch our legs and run around during out of cage time. In our enclosure whee have boxes and paper bags to hide in and tunnels to run through. Our slaves also gave us this box that they filled with hay, so when we feel like a nibble we hop right in and proceed to produce poops as we eat. The only problem with that is that not all of us will fit in there at once, but usually not all of us want to eat at the same time anyways.

|Peaches and her coin purse doppelganger|
Peaches now has a matching coin purse! The rest of us are a bit jealous that nobody has made any featuring our likenesses, they should make one for each and every piggy hmph. Our humans happened upon it when they searched for "guinea pig coin purse" on ebay. As soon as they saw it they knew they had to buy it because the piggy looked so much like our Peaches. As for us pigs, we just hope that whenever they see it they will remember to buy us lots of food. A friendly reminder, if you will.

Here's some more Piggyspeak, brought to you by Coppy, Morry and Sharky! Coppy is the one purring when being petted, while Sharky and Morry are the ones squeaking. This video was taken by the slaves when Morry was a baby, so he sounds particularly squeaky here. You can hear him starting from 0:22 in the video.

Everyone and everypig has heard of crop circles, right? Well, here is the cavy take on it, whee now present to you our day's work of cropped grass!
Editor-in-chief Coppy put us to work on our crop letters, which was an organized effort that involved forming letters while mowing (read: gobbling up) the grass. A while later, and voila! Here is our end result on the slaves backyard lawn. Not too shabby for our first try!

Coppy and Morry hiding by the log chutting and talking. Coppy doesn't like the humans/paparazzi intruding on her gossip time with Morry and turns her butt towards the camera. Morry just got a haircut before this photo so he his head is all fuzzy looking!

Peaches and Poof stand up on their hind legs to grab romaine lettuce from their hanging treat ball! They are quickly joined by Belka, then Truffle soon after. Although whee end up doing a bit more work to get our food, whee do enjoy getting our fresh veggies this way - its more fun for us! Our slaves swear that we are slightly less interested in our food when they just give it to us the normal way. Personally, whee just enjoy yanking it down, then arguing over choice bits amongst ourselves.

|Coppy wonders where all these little munchkins came from...|

Whee were all gallivanting around having fun during out of cage time until our slaves surprised us by bringing out the wheatgrass! Of course, whee all immediately had to drop whatever whee were doing and start competing for it. As you can see from the pigtures (all clickable), Peaches and Belka got into a tug-of-war battle over a large mouthful. Meanwhile, Poof and Truffle rather sneakily decided to gobble down whatever they could in the background.

Poof sitting amidst the carnage of half eaten corn husks while watching Truffle from her cardboard tube. Our humans made it guinea pig friendly by removing the top and bottom from a Quaker Oats container (for Morry's original post on this, see here). A fun and simple toy for any cavy!

This week, from May 1st-7th, is what the humans call National Pet Week! Of course, us guinea piggies call it by its correct name, which is National Pet Wheek. According to the National Pet Week website, its purpose is to promote responsible vet ownership, celebrate the bond between humans and animals, as well as promote public awareness of veterinary medicine.
Our humans celebrated by giving us lots of yummy food, hugs and cuddles, while whee piggies celebrated by inhaling lots of yummy food and allowing ourselves to be petted without too much fuss. Of course, whee had to fuss some... can't let them think we've become complacent! See Coppy here, who is being hugged and cuddled by one of our humans.

|Morry: Is it my turn to go eat yet?|
Whee don't know what a human's definition of pig in a blanket is, but here is a pig in a basket! Our humans thought that Morry looked so cute sitting all fluffed up in the basket, they made him pose for a few pigtures before letting him out to graze like Coppy is doing nearby. That may be why he is poking his nose out inquisitively - he is wondering when he can go and play!

|Peaches waiting at the vet's|
Peaches had quite a day today. Early in the afternoon, our human slaves were busy about to make travel arrangements when they noticed that her breathing had changed. She was making an audible wheezing/rasping noise when purring, squeaking or breathing hard (such as when she was trying to avoid being picked up!). They immediately whisked her off to their vet, who pronounced her congested with a mild URI (upper respiratory infection) and prescribed her two doses of TMS for the next 14 days.
