Here are two little pigs and their guineapigs too. Karen snapped our little kids, Rob and Jen playing with their pets yesterday evening.














I do believe that their names are Parsnip and Honey. Karen and I bought them for Jen last Christmas.

I think that the g. pigs are traumatised by fresh air and grass and spend all their time hiding in their tent - I hope that they get bolder as the summer goes on

Lack of room with the other two in there would be scarey

I like the enclosure. I wish the pigs would fit in something similar. Looking forward to meeting you tomorrow.

Guinea pigs are fantastic, we had (up to) 14 around the house at one time or another.

Contrary to belief, don't feed them lettuce.

I love Guinea pigs too. Chirpy little creatures.  My Dad always used to say that they had a guinea pig who used to start squeaking minutes before the air raid siren sounded in Birmingham, thus giving them a headstart for the air raid shelter. Hope they took GP with them!
