Bring on the parsley!!
Parsley is just about the most delicious, juicy, sweet smelling saliva stimulating food a piggy could wheek for! So here are our enthusiastic girls
Snoopy reaches high for parsley! Shirley is half way off the ground,
Jiffy comes over
"what's all the excitement, girls?"
The girls hardly have time to explain to Jiffy, besides, action speaks stronger than words.
Jiffy is getting the idea...
Jiffy goes for some parsley, watch him stand!
Before, when Jiffy sued to live on his own in a lonely cage, he would never bother with parsley, or any fresh veggies. But now, with the girls stimulating him and showing him just how good life can get, Jiffy's living life to the fullest
This is how crazy the girls go for the veggies. They literally run in circles, trying to reach it. I'm so evil, I kept holding it in the highest possible so they REALLY have to stretch for it!! Shirley was hoping she could stand on the wooden log and reach more easily. But it's too far!!
She can't get to it! Shirley needs to find another stepping stool for herself
Look at chubby Snoopy, she's all round and fat!
Shirley cannot balance and stand as well as her little sister, Snoopy, so she is actually leaning on Snoopy right now to keep from falling over, lol.
Shirley got some! Chewing away..
Shirley wants more! But can't reach it...what to do.....what to do...................
YES! Use Snooopy as a ladder! Can you all see how upset Snoopy is about this arrangement? Shirley didn't even ask for her permission to dig her sharp nails into Snoopy.
And also...what is Jiffy doing, hiding in the corner?? He no want parsley? For some reason, our girls are always much more zealous for veggies than our boys.
Tug of war
lol, look at those little front paws in the air....
Wow! I think Shirley deserves a round of wheeks! That is the straightest she's ever stood! and perfectly balanced this time, too!
Do you see Snoopy's mouth is OPEN?
Shirley stretches even higher! Impossible is nothing
Oh look, Snoopy can stand full length too.
"Do I smell something juicy?"
Why do I always make them stretch soooo far. Looks like Snoopy is in danger of tumbling off the second floor soon, lol
Alright, I think that is enough stretching exercises for the day. Now you guys can have unlimited access to veggies
Now it's the fat girls' turn to exercise. here is pretty Shylie working hard for her daily geens.
Isn't Shylie's hair so beautiful
She manages to stay pretty even while fighting for food
The two of them yanking and tugging on the stalks together, lol. See how they are straining their necks?
Snowy going in for the kill!
Shylie tells Puffy:
Puffy observes intently.
"You have to stand right up Puffy if you want it!"
Puffy begins to have doubts for his capabilities
"And clearly, you are no match for us!"
Puffy looks longingly up at those leafy greens.....he'll never get a chance if he tried to compete with the girls. He'll get shoved to the sidelines in no time. Just look at Snowy's CHUB!
I think Puffy has an idea....
*light bulb over his puffy head...*
He goes up to the second floor, and crosses the bridge....
Onto the other side, and yes indeed, here he gets parsley allll to himself
Of course, it is important to implement the teaching of SHARING when raising piggies, so let's ALL enjoy parsley on the bridge shall we?
Shylie wants some too! See her big black beautiful eyes?
This is a happy trio indeed
Puffy you need to share with Snowy and Shylie.
It's not a good idea to piss them off...them can easily shove you off the bridge with their big butts....
They even get a variety of parsley. Puffy is eating curly parsley, the ones you find decorated in western dishes. Snowy and Shylie are enjoying chinese parsley, which is also coriander
Happy beautiful piggies
Puffy is done eating again, lol. Puffy is always the first one to leave the dinner table when he's eating with his wives, since he has a small tummy, and a small bladder (pees a lot during lap time)
I think most pigs would trade carrots for some parsley.
Look at Shylie's orange lips from eating carrots, lol
"Space for one more, ladies?"
Puffy likes his privacy, so he dragged a large piece of lettuce off to the corner to eat
What a happy parsley afternoon
A breezy summer
Hong kong has literally been stifling hot the past week, I could not turn on the AC for my pigs 24/7, so I tried every other means to keep them cool. we put fans facing their cages:
Here is the big cage.
Here is the upper bunk cage
here is the lower bunk cage (I made sure all of them were out of reach from my piggies. I once caught PJ chewing it! It's amazing how far he can stretch...told you he was more than meets the eye...)
and let's get some feedback from our customers?
Puffy in a hanging house
Today, we decided to test how well our hidey houses will hold a piggy
hmmmm...product testing so far so good
That doesn't look too comfy for our guinea pig, his feet are like hands!! lol
Poor baby, he had to be suspended in such an awkward position for 1 whole minute, so we took him on the sofa for a piggy cuddle
See him smiling at the camera?
Oblivious of just how CUTe he is!!
Puffy will not survive in the wild...he can't even SEE where the grass is, let alone PREDATORS
Oh, and just LOOK at his beautiful peruvian hair allll spread out. Many people say peruvians have "butt heads", because their butts look like their heads and you can't even tell which is which end sometimes. Thankfully, Puffy head is marked WHITE. And we also give him butt trims every fortnight, so his butt hair won't be dragging around pee and poo....
In, out, and back in!
This isn't much, but I caught a whole series of photos of Puffy venturing in and out of a tunnel, and then back in again, lol, he looked disoriented again
"Oi! what's this poop doing here under my nose?"
"going back where I came from...."
I wonder what Snowy is thinking all this while?
