Wags and Waves for Forrest Day

As some of you may or may not know the blogosphere lost a a wonderful pigsonality recently. Forrest the dog from passed away, leaving his FURmily heartbroken. Now he’s running over the Rainbow Bridge but two of his friends have decided to put together an amazing tribute. May 10th has been dubbed Wags and Waves for Forrest Day. Here is the poster they made for the day:

Pam and Sammy's Forrest badge.

You can find out more about the day from the original post here.

So as whee don’t have tails to wag, here are some pigtures of Buddy waving to Forrest over than Rainbow Bridge.

Whee hope you will all join us in remembering Forrest today and pop over to leave a comment of support for his family on his blog.

Whee would also like to ask you to visit our dear friend Bacon who sadly lost his sisfur Mouse Girl yesterday. Whee would really appreciate if you could take the time to go and let Bacon and his family know you’re thinking of them too.

The Rainbow Bridge is stealing away far too many of our furfriends recently and all we can do is remember the happy times we shared and send all our love to their families.

All our love and whiffles

This piggy poser is putting our hairless cousins on the map! Flying the flag for embracing your individuality and with an incredible 55,000 followers on Instagram, he has a fanbase to rival some celebrities.


So what is a skinny pig?
A skinny pig is a type of guinea pig cross breed. It is a cross between a strain of hairless guinea pigs made in a lab (reported to be from a genetic mutation indentified in 1978) and your average furry guinea pig. The have a little fuzzy fur on their faces/noses and legs but other than that they are hairless as can be!
Whee love checking out his latest pigtures and poses. Whee might be tempted to recreate them ourselves!
Do you have a favourite animal celebrity?

Hope you’re having a great Sunday

Going In The Garden

Hello efurryone. This is my very first post just by me. *waves* Nice to see you all.

I’ve been a little shy as I settle in so Mummy didn’t want to crowd me with cameras. Now I’m much calmer and I have a story to tell you! Yesterday evening the weather was perfect and Mummy decided it was just right for me to have my first ever run in the garden! She was very busy pulling all these boxes and things out of the box near my cage and I was a little nervous. Nacho told me how much fun it is out there but I wasn’t so sure.

Uncle Buddy and Uncle Basil went out first, they were squeaking with excitement. Then Nacho went out and it was just me left. I sat on top of the pigloo waiting nervously. Mummy came and picked me up, promising lots of fun. Whee walked through the house and I tried to pretend I wasn’t scared by hiding in Mummy’s hair. All of a sudden whee were outside. There were lots of smells and sounds and it was a bit overwhelming for a little chap like me. Then Mummy sat down and moved me down to her lap. Nacho squeaked and I looked around. So this was outside.

A big cage with convertible roof, retracted to allow more light. A big blue tent with a fluffy snuggle blanket. Two cardboard castles boxes. And a big pile of green stuff that Nacho was currently scoffing. I sat there, very still for all of five seconds then jumped off Mummy’s knee with an indignant squeak of “Wait for me!” to Nacho.

The green spaghetti was grass and it was delicious. As it was my first time having any, Mummy restricted how much whee had so I didn’t overload my system. Nacho was not pleased and squeaked at the hooman for more most of the time whee were out there! The smells and sounds are fascinating and I don’t know why I was scared now! Mummy giggled when a bird called overhead and I started squeaking back to it and climbing the sides of the run. Here are some pigtures of my fun time outdoors:

Have you ever faced a fear and wished you had done it sooner?

Happy Thursday
