...it is from that hour that I incline to date my Spiritual New-birth, or Baphometic Fire-baptism; perhaps I directly thereupon began to be a Pig.

A pigblog miscellany

Since I don't have the time or energy to think up anything really interesting for the pigblog today, here is a series of pictures of random pig events that have taken place over the past few days.

First, here is the Happy Helper containing some of the chaos that resulted from my weekend Christmas photo shoot. Bessie is coralled in his left arm, and Maude is prevented from doing her lemming impression by his right. Thanks, happy helper! The cards turned out so well!!!

Because it is too cute, here is Bessie's funny droopy little bottom lip. Guinea pigs have these great droopy lips that make them look so comical and sweet. How can you not love something that looks this foolish?

The girls are finally learning how to share food. Not always, but some of the time. There is still the odd chase and grab, but they just have such a thing for lettuce, they are too busy eating to taunt each other. Lettuce is kind of a problem food for them. They love it -- it's one of their perennial favorites -- but when you've given it to them once in a day, they'll start hooting every time you get up to do anything or go anywhere, or even when they hear paper rustling, because they NEED more!

Here is Bessie enjoying some of her favorite green stuff in the privacy of her house. Guinea pigs are supposedly colour blind, but both pigs definitely prefer the purple house. They chase each other out of it on an hourly basis.

Sweet little Miss Maude is gettin' her lunch on here. She crunches through the lettuce so quickly and with such seeming violence, it makes me think of lions devouring gazelles. Guinea pigs are the true hunters of the vegan world!
