...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.

Updates forthcoming...

Hi everyone. Thanks for all of your support and your comments: Jamal Black, anonymous, anonymous, Aunt Sheila, Cath and Oliver, anonymous, Gord and Carol... oh, and Chris. How kind! We're approaching 100 page views -- thank you, loyal pigblog fans!

Sorry there's been so little activity here -- I've been taking pictures and had planned to do a big update last night, but for some reason iphoto on Alex's computron screwed up and while it looked like all the pictures had been uploaded, we couldn't move them or do anything with them. What's worse, we had erased them from the camera. Poop! So I'm taking more while Alex figures out the iphoto glitch, and I'll have something up for all you hardcore pigblog fans later today -- for realz, yo.

Bessie's integration hasn't been going as smoothly as we had hoped. She and Maude fight whenever we remove the barrier between them, with no signs of one or the other pig backing down. Maude even humped Bessie yesterday, (!!!) and while Bessie sort of took it, that doesn't seem to have established their hierarchy to either's satisfaction. We were a little sad, thinking maybe they can't live happily together -- and that pigblog would be no more! But I found a great resource, actually by the same people who invented c&c cages, that gave us some hope. They counsel owners not to give up too soon, to keep doing neutral introductions, and if all else fails, to throw the little beasts in a bath and make them smell the same. They claim to have a 100% success rate. They also say it's normal for gps to fight viciously at first and that you should only stop them if they draw blood. Ughh.... it's so hard for me to see my little angels being so nasty!

Well, expect some more movement on this site later. Maude and Bessie send their love to all.
