Twinkle Twinkle Little Award . . .

Ok so whee haven’t posted about any of the awards whee have been getting in ages. Whee blame the management here. If there was an award for laziness, they would probably send someone else to pick it up for them. And you think whee are kidding!

Wordpress Family Award X2The first is one whee have already had and passed on but that’s not going to stop us posting to let you know whee are all family! This award came from the wonderful Sandra from quirkybooks. You can click here to read her post about the award and see who else received it. Whee love her site because it has lots of information for the hooman and HAWT ladypigs for us! Hehehe

Next . . .


Ain’t no sunshine when she gone . . . that’s why whee are glad she’s always around! Yes, whee were awarded this pretty award by none other than the bootiful Anouchka from LifeofBun. She does great make-up advice which our hooman loves and compliments us piggies which proves she has good taste! You can read her post about the award here.

There are some simple rules attached to this award . . .

1) Use the logo above in the post.   ~ check
2) Link to whoever nominated you.    ~ double check
3) Write ten pieces of information about yourself.    ~ okie dokie
4) Nominate ten fellow bloggers “who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogsphere.”   ~ whee will put all nominees at the end of the post
5) Leave a comment on the nominees’ blogs to tell them of the award    ~ will do!

Ten Facts about us:

  1. Basil once tried to eat a snail.
  2. Buddy’s favourite thing to do is run around his cage on the floor but it’s been moved to make room for the Pigmas tree so he’s not happy.
  3. Noah appears to be a very odd mix of breeds.  He has a few Abyssinian rosettes in the middle, a short haired face, a long haired bottom and a few frizzy whiskers. Mummy just wonders who his pawrents were!
  4. Nacho squeaks and crosses his back legs when he’s asleep.
  5. Buddy is still the chubbiest of us, weighing in at 1200g after following a diet prescribed by his vet (he used to be 1450g!!)
  6. Basil likes to lick everyone, even hoomans he has just met. Sharing the love!
  7. Nacho is furry fussy about treats he likes. He prefers herbs and hay to anything else.
  8. Noah makes grumpy, grumbling noises whenever there is a noise he doesn’t like and that is pretty much all noises from knocks at the door to the phone ringing.
  9. A bag rustling instantly means food in this house, even if the hoomans don’t realise it when they make the noises.
  10. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining, snowing or horrible out, hoomans must always go out and fetch us fresh grass and herbs.

Whee will post our nominations at the end . . .


And our final award is our furry first Blog of the year 2013 star! ^_^ Isn’t it exciting!

Blog of the Year Award 1 star jpegWhee were given this by the FURtastic furfriend Savannah at Savannah’s Paw Tracks. You can read her full post and who she passed it onto here.

Again, there are a few rules with this:

1. Select the blog(s) you think deserve the ‘Blog of the Year 2013’ Award.  ~ hmmmm let me think

2. Write a blog post and tell us about the blog(s) you have chosen – there are no minimum or maximum number of blogs required – and ‘present’ the blog(s) with their award.     ~ whee will!

3. Let the blog(s) that you have chosen know that you have given them this award and share the instructions with them – (please don’t alter the instructions or the badges!)  ~ okie dokie!

Now for both the Sunshine Award and the Blog of The Year 2013 Award whee would like to nominate ten blogs. That’s right, all ten of you get both awards! Enjoy!

1. OneSpoiledCat

2. TheMisadventuresofMisaki

10. Markingourterritory

Have a fabulous Friday efurryone!

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!

These Are A Few Of Our Favourite Things . . .

Well whee have been sent an award by the lovely Madmoiselle Misaki. Big huggles and thank you to you!


The My Favourite Things Award is simple. Link back to the person (or furfriend) who gave you the award. Thank you Miss Misaki! Then whee need to tell you our six favourite things.

Hmmmm . . . Our six favorite things are:

  1. Fruit and vegetables snack time!
  2. Nommy herb treats
  3. Food in general, especially big piles of hay to bounce around in!
  4. Snuggles with the little hoomans
  5. Snuggles with Mummy
  6. And playing in the garden!
Hay is the answer to everything! (This is one of Mummy's favourite pigtures of last year, just look at the expression on that face!)

Hay is the answer to everything! (This is one of Mummy’s favourite pigtures of last year, just look at the expression on that face!)

Who should whee pass this on to? Well whee want to give it to Easy, for always making us laugh on those sad days and also to Savannah (and the Lovely Leo!) who is getting braver every day and being a great foster sister!

Have a fab friday efurryone

ps. A little thing to make you smile, this song always cheers us up

Saturday Stars!

As promised, a video of the ladypigs dancing. Coming to a stage near  you . . . Poppy and Clover, the burlesque guinea pigs:

After making this whee found out that Clover has been taken ill so whee would love if you could send lots of healing wheeks and whiffles her way.

Have a great Saturday

The Big Reveal!

Well lets see who guessed right . . .

In a shocking turn of events, Colin Caterpillar is in custody for the cucumber crunching. He is also believed to be responsible for the ravishing of next door’s vegetables! (Colin is a Aglais urticae for anyone who is interested in that sort of thing)


And Samantha Snail was snared for the theft of one rather small basil plant. Whee believe Severus Slug may have been working with Samantha but whee don’t have the proof!

Did you guess right? Are you impressed by our investigating?

All in a days work for the CIA – Cavy Investigations Agency!

Have a terrific Tuesday, knowing that the gardens are a safe place to be once more!

Cavy Bearding?!

Have you heard about it? A new craze on the internet known as pet bearding. Basically you hold your cat/dog/rat/ferret up to your face and get a pigture! A great example whee found on google include this lovely pigture! (this is not our pigture whee just borrowed it off google, if you search catbearding or dogbearding you can see loads more, great way to waste an afternoon!)

There is even an official site whee found where they show many types.

The only logical next step is guinea piggies so guess what Mummy got when she was at a friends house with their piggies . . . .


Poppy the guinea pig and her hooman Mummy

Ta da! The very first guinea pig/ cavy bearding! Please give it a go and tell us about it! Whee wanna see all of your hoomans rocking their great pet looks!

Silly Seeing Stars Saturday

As every star will testify, sometimes you are caught off guard and the paparazzi get a pigture of you, you really wish they had not! Here is one such pigture .  .  .


Humiliating much?!! I was just taking a little nap!

Have a super Saturday efurryone.



Treat Me Right!

Whee have some super exciting news. It has been a long time coming (mainly thanks to our silly hoomans damaging the camera that had all our pigtures on and having to fix it so whee could post this!) Whee noticed that a furfriend of ours, Dalton has a pack of furry friends which help him reviewing treats and foods from Wagg Pet Foods.

Of course being piggies whee couldn’t pass up a chance for free noms so whee asked if whee could join. Being a good doggy he said yes and posted us out some treats. Looking at others on his pack page whee were super nervous to see whee are the first guinea pig reviewers!

The treats whee were sent were, Wagg Small Animal Carrot Sticks

As whee haven’t really reviewed things before whee had a good think about what whee look for in a treat

Packaging : The packaging is very nice. A bright green and orange, very eye-catching and our two favourite colours!

Flavour : They are very crunchy and just the right size. Mummy has had issues with treats being too big before and getting stuck in our mouths, or being too small and getting stuck between our teeth. These are just the right size for us to sit down and spend a good five minutes nomming on!

More-ish-ness : As soon as whee finished our first taster whee wanted more! Buddy was even cheeky enough to hide his unfinished one under his paw and beg for another one! Mummy says they are treat though and whee can only have one or two for a special treat a couple of times a week.

The-Sciencey-Bit : Mummy was a little concerned at first reading the back of the packet where they recommend reducing normal food when giving these treats but she has concluded it is like her and chocolate. You just need to be sensible. With us piggies the best treats are of course veggies but every once in awhile it is great to get something a little bit special and different. Mummy says whee are all in perfect condition so there are no concerns anymore! She loves the fact there is calcium in it to keep our teeth strong. Though to much calcium, like everything can be bad for you.

Whee give these treats a 9/10

It would be good to know things like how much vitamin c for example is in them. As whee cannot produce our own vitamin c and  need a  good amount, Mummy is very conscious of getting it into us and find that sort of thing helpful when considering treats.

Anyway, here is the fun bit! Us doing the very complicated and lengthy process of ‘taste testing’!

Please check out other Wagg pet food products. They make them for dogs, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, hamsters, mice and gerbils! If you are in the UK you might want to consider joining the pack yourself!

Thank you for sending the treat Dalton and everyone at Wagg. Please keep making delicious noms! Whee are proud to be part of your pack!
