Slave's Guinea Pig Mugs

We had a request from Eddie and Nugget with Slave Cindy for a photograph of Slave's Christmas present piggy mug. We omitted to include this in our post about her piggy gifts so we are remedying this right now.

Below you can see the new one complete with matching spoon.
She has a similar one made by the same company in which she stores her paint brushes. She does not want to use them for coffee in case they get chipped. You can see them both below.


These piggies also appear on cards and calendars in the UK and we expect that readers from here will have seen them in shops or may own them too.

Whilst we had the camera out, an intrepid piggy climbed onto a stool to take a photo of Slave's row of other mugs on a very high shelf in the pig room. We thought that we would share this photo too. Here they are.....

A Piggy A-Z. F is for Fresh grass. The Finest Food for Piggies.

After a day when our grass was frozen, we were very pleased to have some lovely fresh grass for breakfast this morning. Fresh grass is the very best food for piggies and we all love it.

Above you can see Ivan Piggyfriend tucking in. " Eeek, Slave is going to take my pigture!"

" I am F for Full," says Magnus.

Look what Slave received at Christmas.

We wanted to share pigtures of some piggy presents that our Slave received at Christmas.

Her son, Sean, our pigsitter, sent her this card ( below ).

Santa Pig has goggly eyes.

A box of delights arrived from Connecticut from our erstwhile Junior Slave. There were presents for all but in her goody bag were these socks.





Whoever designed them must know about piggies because as well as pigtures of adorable piggies, there are carrots and............little piles of poo! Look below for a close up.

We do not think that Slave will wear them as she would not want them to wear out and, at the moment, they are pegged to the Dangermice's pen so that the photos could be taken.

She received this funny plushy piggy. His name tag says that he is called Norman. Apparently he was in a film. He has tiny, little pink feet just like us. ( pigture below ).
Aren't they cute? ( just like us again ).

Look at these tiny little piggies! They came in a box with their own pen, a pig cave, some lettuces and a carrot plus their very own Slave to care for them. They even have a water bottle.

Slave loves her silly presents to add to her vast collection of piggy plushies, ornaments and other delights. We hope you all had lots of lovely gifts too.

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.
