A Furry Happy New Year!

Well the New Year is upon us and the past one has been bittersweet. Whee have found and lost furmily members and met soo many friends through this blog world it is incredible. Whee would like to offer this badge to all of our readers as a thank you for sharing 2012 with us.


Now to New Year resolutions. Whee were invited to do a post on Peace Love and Whiskers on our resolutions. You can check it here. Whee really would love for you to help us pick a resolution for all of us. So whee are going to hold a vote. Below are our resolutions, please vote on which one you think whee should go for!

1) Give up eating socks.

It is a terrible habit whee all have. An addiction almost. Whee see a sock and cannot seem to help ourselves. Omnomnom! It is so much fun particually when a toe is involved. The little hoomans don’t agree but whee are trying to make them forget material things like socks and love the piggy nibbled skin they were born in!

2) Giving up bar biting.

Another terrible habit! Whee are always biting the cage bars to get Mummy’s attention and nothing ever stops us! But if whee don’t do that then what else will whee combine with loud squeaking to get her attention?!

3) Vow to lose the built up Pigmass fat.

Well Winter brings with it less garden time. In fact it stops garden time because the changes of temperature going in and out of the house can make us piggies unwell. That means all runs happen inside. Which means whee have cuddle cosies and fleece blankets. Which in turn explains our Winter laziness and build up of chubby! Mind you, losing weight requires running, exercise and focus. Three things whee all lack skills in! Hmmm maybe something else?

4) Give up complaining.

Oh now whee really are expecting the impossible! Whee are British piggies, like hooman Brits complaining is in our nature! If whee didn’t complain so much there would be far less on our blog. And Mummy messes up often enough that whee need a good moan about her occassionally!

So which one should whee go for?


What are your resolutions? How long do you think they will last? Did you keep to your resolutions last year?

All that is left for us to say is ‘Happy New Year!’

  1. I like to chew on socks, any socks, but the dirtier the better. For some reason mummy doesn’t like Me doing this. She says I am a bad dog. How can that be? Me and Nellie are the bestest doggies in all the land.

  2. I think I have given up on resolutions because they never stick!

    But I vote for trying to lay off the socks. That seems like the easiest one because those bars are irresistible!

  3. I like to eat socks… they are yummy… have a fabulous piggie-year

  4. Kaci loves to eat socks. If something is inside-it’s even better. She specializes in big toes.

  5. Happy New Year! Chew something for me, boys, will you? 🙂

  6. Hmm, Eating socks seems to be a cross species habit. Kozmo likes socks too (and me has been known to indulge)!
    Me would not pick giving them up!

  7. My resolution is to pick up my guitar again. I don’t remember what I resolved last year so I can’t say if I was successful or not…that’s handy LOL. Cheers and Happy New Year.

    • Happy New Year to you too. One of our little hoomans is learning the guitar and he want to learn to play a song by Muse and a song by Queen for his New Year resolution.


      • Thank you. How fun, it’s nice to learn an instrument when you’re younger, I didn’t start till I was 24. Those are good goals to be sure. Have a pawsome day!

  8. To you & all the family
    Happy New Year.
    May 2013 be a good one for you and your loved ones.
    Best Wishes Molly

  9. Haha, happy new year piggies!

  10. I voted for you to lose the fat. How can ANYBODY give up chewing socks???!! Why bother getting up in the morning….?

    Love and licks,

  11. looks like we were with the majority! We said to give up eating socks too! Too dangerous!

Squeak to us!!!
