2013 in review

Well whee took a short break for Pigmas but whee are back now with our super exciting report of what wordpress says about our blog for the past year.


The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. (Whee requested wordpress cavies but they are still using monkeys which whee think is far less efficient!)

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 30,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Click here to see the complete report.

But if you would rather hear what whee think of our year read on!

There’s Hutch a lot whee want to say,

There’s Hutch a lot whee’ve done,

Those days when rain poured endlessly,

And days of Summer sun.

The ups and downs,

The good and bad,

You’ve stayed with us,

Happy and sad.

Whee’ve lost two lives,

Our hearts did break,

But somehow stayed strong,

There were memories to make.

Whee staged a campaign,

Against cavies kept with bunnies,

Whee hope it made a difference,

And taught pet Daddies and Mummies.

Whee made a care guide,

To help owners understand,

The fun and the facts,

About the small lives in their hands.

And though whee love you all dearly,

There are a few who stand out,

The commentators on our adventures,

Who never failed to shout.

Sweet Val, our friend,

Who has had her tough days,

But still stays with us,

And always does amaze.

For she is strong and she shines,

Like the brightest of stars,

If whee didn’t have our own Mummy,

Whee would wish she was ours.

And next FozziesMum,

A beacon of light,

Who shone through the darkness,

Till things were alright.

And Sammy the Cat,

Our most unspoiled friend,

Who’s been there since the start,

May our friendship never end.

Then Easy and Misaki,

Who always made us smile,

And who on each Birthday and event,

Went the extra mile.

That’s our year in a nutshell,

Our friends and our fun,

A year of more memories,

Now onto the next one!

Thank you efurryone for being with us through efurrything. May this next year bring more memories and more wonderful furfriends.

Happy New Year all!

Nacho, Noah, Buddy & Basil
