Don’t Parsley Me By! (A Pigture Contest)

Hiya efurryone. Firstly you haven’t heard from us two for awhile but here whee are enjoying parsley in the garden today:

This leads neatly onto our new contest. Don’t Parsley Me By. Mummy has decided she needs something as a distraction for her and what better way to keep her busy than with a pigture contest!

Whee would like you to all send us your pigtures of your rescue pets. Whether you adopted them from an official rescue (or shelter), took them from a bad home or situation or saved them from a terrible fate. Whee would like you to send their pigtures with a line about what they came from. The pigture can be of them looking pleading or really enjoying their new homes. (Sorry for anyfurry who doesn’t have a rescue pet, whee will have other pigture contests soon) If you don’t have a rescue pet you can send us a pigture of your pet campaigning for animals in rescues (be as inventive as you like!)

This was inspired by Mummy hearing a song that made her think of rescue pets. The song is called Lonely No More by Clay Aiken. What whee would like to do is, collect as many as whee can and put them into a video to this song to raise awareness of animals in need.

You can send your pigtures to us at or tweet them to us @HutchAGoodLife (afraid whee aren’t too savvy with other social networks just yet so just these this time!) Please use the subject title “Don’t Parsley Me By Contest”Β for email entries and mention the contest in tweets.

The closing date is Thursday 12th September at 1pm (GMT aka UK time) Please spread the word, whee want to get as many hoomans and furries involved as possible. If you have more than one rescue pet you can enter a maximum of three pigtures (all must be of different pets).

Depending on how many entries, whee hope to be able to include efurryone! The pigture that is the overall winner will be the opening pigture for the video and the runner up will be the closing pigture.

So hoomans get snapping and pets get posing.

Whee can’t wait to see your entries! Happy Friday

Buddy & Basil

  15. What a great idea, piggies! Miss D is a rescue, a long-term foster dog. She’s a handful, but a sweetie-pie all the same. Can’t wait to see all the pigtures!

  16. I will send photos of our adopted piggies tomorrow. This sounds so fun. Happy tail wags!

  17. This is a fabulous idea! Can Taylor’s picture be an old one, say from her puppy days?

  18. OK goodie! I have a pigture for you and I will tweet it to you in just a minute.

  19. My pig is like 3 weeks old. She was separated from her only sister. She is only comfortable in my arms. When she is in her cage she seems to always be in the same place right behinde her igloo and/or in her hiding place. When I go to get her out of her cage she seems to be frightened by me. I don’t know if I have picked her up wrong and she is scared for me to pick her up or if she is just depressed. It seems that see had not touch her real food.

    • 3 weeks is very young and so they will tend to huddle in one place when frightened. It will probably help her to have a friend if you can get one. Also guinea pigs are prey animals so she may be eating and drinking at night when she’s not watched and feels safer. If you’re worried, a trip to the vet could help make sure nothing is wrong
