And Stretch! Pigmas Prep!

In his determination to get into his little black dress this Pigmas, Buddy is exercising.


Whee are pleased to announce that he is now the top end of the normal weight range for his size so all our efforts have worked!

He’s not happy about the diet he’s been on but it’s better and he is much healthier and more energetic!

How are you preparing for Pigmas?

Happy Tuesday

  1. Buddy that’s a GREAT stretch! Up on your tippy toes! Bravo on the weight loss….it’s not easy dieting is it!!! Pigmas preparation is continuing around here….today Mom and Dad are decorating the tree……YAY……….

    Hugs, Sammy

  2. Wait Buddy, my mom will join the “Black Dress Team” :o)

  3. OK, we now have to see you in that little black dress Basil πŸ˜€

  4. Good job Buddy, and Molly Sue and Gus are being very good and helping their humans as much as they can.

  5. Well done we say. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  6. That looks like a pawfect weight. hmm wonder if I should mention to my Cinnamon that he could stand to lose a few ounces? Ma got him some piggy shirts from the pet store and they barely went over his head. BOL!

  7. I have a natural LBD that always fits. The only problem is that it’s turning grey now.

  8. Oh I am starting preparation for Christmas as well my friends. Every chance I get, I mark the items that I want – I mean need on my grocery list. She thinks daddy is writing these items – snorts. Sshh – don’t tell her. I can NEVER have to many nom-noms. XOXO – Bacon

  9. How much does he weigh? I’ve been trying to get my piggies to lose a little weight but I don’t know how. Any tips? πŸ™‚ thanks!

    • How much do they weigh? ^_^

      Buddy is now 1390g but he started out the diet close to 1800g which was very bad for him and I’m terribly guilty for treating him too much.

      The trick is to limit pellet food (and change to pellet food if they have a museli feed)

      Then you feed more hay. Cut out treats to once a week maximum. Reduce fruit intake as it’s high in sugar and stick to leafy greens etc.

      Also get lots of wooden chews and toys for them to play with and spend roughly an hour playing a game which involves them running or moving about πŸ™‚

      Always consult a vet if you are concerned about their diet πŸ™‚

      Hope this helps


  10. Few more pullups and you’ll be able to scale that cage in no time.

  11. Oh, Buddy, my Motor Mommy can SO relate…..she keeps saying she needs to start her morning walking again….but every morning, she finds it so much easier to just laze around in bed….
    Love, Sundae

  12. Dat’s pawsum. ConCats

    Luv ya’

    Dezi and Lexi

  13. Go Buddy go!!! You are looking so fine & sleek!
    As for the holiday…no plans. Without Nylablue it all seems pointless. I jsut want to pull the covers over my head… πŸ˜‰
    Love all of you, Sherri-Ellen x0x0x0x0x0

    • Awwww 😦

      Whee will miss Nylablue so much this Pigmas. Efurry year Mummy finds a special ornament for her tree to represent those who are no longer with us. This year she will find one for Nylablue.

      Whee are all here for you


      • I agree Pigmass will be very different w/out Nylablue. I have a purply-blue snowflake that I will hang in memory of Nylablue this year πŸ˜‰
        Thank you for your love & support G-Piggies & Mom too
        Love Sherri-Ellen ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀ ❀

  14. How am I preparing? Um……eating chocolates after dinner. I’m just allowing one. So I don’t have a goodie attack one night. I wish I had the will power you have Buddy.

  15. HIGH FIVE *tiny* PAWS!!
