Buddy And The Better Blog Style?

Well firstly, what do you guys think of the new style to the blog? Whee had a few people say the old background flashed a little too much and hurt their eyes. Also, after losing Nibbles it was upsetting to have his bootiful fluffy faced portrait in our header so whee designed a new one! Whee hope you like it!

Now I thought you might like to see these pigtures of me. Whee have been stuck inside for so long with it being soo hot. Me and Basil have been waiting for it to cool down. (and tearing up all our bedding and chucking the hay out of the cage in protest about lack of grass access. Running on the carpet isn’t the same, it doesn’t taste as nice for starters!)


And it is finally cool enough for us to spend a little while outside!! Here is me enjoying some time in the garden today!

Please let us know what you think of the new style and be completely honest!

Have a Super Saturday!



EDIT – Trying a new header with pictures of us instead now, let us know what you think!

  1. I like the new style. We’re busy changing too. We don’t have a good reason, SHE just likes to change things!
    I like the lilac background and the piggy-prints are fun.

  2. Buddy it looks great!! and I understand why you needed to change..i am sorry that it’s so hot and we could send you a nice breeze from down under as it is very cold here!! your pigtures are beautiful and I am sure everyone will love your new bloggie style!! have a great day sweet ones hugs from Fozziemum xx

  3. hey buddy, the new style is nice although i miss the old style. motu baby gets furious every time i put him inside the cage.. he tries to bite open his way out.. at any given chance he gets out and runs off to the balcony.. i made several outdoor homes for him… plus he loves sitting on top of the flower pots.. it’s been raining a lot here so stays pretty cool most of the times.. buddy, you and your friends are welcome to visit us…

    you all have a super saturday too!


  4. It’s…okay. I understand about Nibbles, but I miss your fun header very much. I never had a problem with the yellow, the lilac seems so…purple. The new layout is basically the exact opposite of what you had going on before. The other one was…funner.

    Hope you have a fun Saturday. 🙂

  5. Its very nice but it needs a bit more fun and you guys are fun so the header need to match that sense of fun,but we understand the need for change and your mummy can change it with the seasons if she wants to,glad you got to go out the hot weather didn’t stop me as mummy let me out really early and the back garden is in shade till mid day so it was quite cool.hope you get to go out again,have a great week end guys,xx Speedy and Rachel

  6. Looks super, nice and easy to read, even on an iPad! So pleased to hear that you got outside again – hasn’t it been a pest this hot weather 😉

  7. Hi Buddy! I love the lilac background and little piggy toe prints – WAY fun……but I have to admit I miss the colorful drawings of you guys at the header – maybe your little hoomans or your Mum could do a new drawing including Nacho….?? They are such good artists! Anyway, I love it like it is too………I also love the way you’re smiling inside your tiny tent while playing outside. It’s been cooler here but I’m sure it won’t last….it’s still HOT summer – we just got a momentary break! Stay cool guys….

    Kitty Hugs, Sammy

  8. Crisp and clean! We love the new style!

    Love and licks,

  9. I love the new style! Looks very neat! 😀

  10. We give the new style a BIG PAWS UP!! We love it!

    Enjoy your time in the garden.

  11. I don’t like it – I LOVE IT!!! Basil looks great :o) Have a great garden-time, I hope you haven’t this horrible rain too – it’s bucketing down here.

  12. I actually miss the brighter colors and more FUN look that the old one had, this looks good too though, but it doesn’t have that playful “vibe” that the other one had. Barks and licks and love, Dakota

  13. I like the photo header better than cartoons, but I like a frequent change most of all!

  14. As far as the header goes, you do what’s right for you. We lost Kenzie in October and decided to keep the header with him in it. It’s a personal matter that only you can decide.

    • Whee thought that the fact the little hoomans kept crying every time they saw the blog meant it was time to change. Whee have immortalized he’s fluffy little face on our Rainbow bridge page. Maybe in time it will become easier but right now, it hurts a lot. Whee think Kenzie is bootiful and keeping him in your header is a wonderful homage to him.


  15. Love the new look guys!

  16. loving your pigtures in the header… can you maybe ask your mummy to change the lilac to another fun color.. other than that this looks great and so do all of you 🙂


  17. I really like your new header wih the piggy pictures. Everyone looks so handsome! Sorry the little hoomans had some bad news – hope everything is okay – or will be better soon.
    take care,

  18. Hi Basil, Buddy, Nacho & Nutty…we love the new header!!! Your page looks fab!!! How did you do the header if I can ask?? I would love to do a collage header for Nylablue’s blog but have no idea how.

    • Whee used the free online program Lunapic


      Just go to the ‘effect’ drop down and pick the third one, gradient blur. From there Mummy blurred two together, saved it, blurred another two together, saved it again and then blurred the two saved one’s together.

      Hope this helps!


      • Oh Thank you for this link!!! I have never heard of this site so shall bookmark it & try it out!!! I need all the help I can get, hehehe!!!
        Sherri-Ellen xo

  19. I love the new look!

  20. Loving the header it is fantastic x

  21. It sounds as though I’ve missed one header, but I like the one I see with your pigtures and names. I also like the colour of your background and the piggy prints.

    • Whee like the purple too. It’s our Mummy’s favourite colour! Glad you like the new style. Whee thought the faces and names might help hoomans tell the differences in us!


Squeak to us!!!
