An EGGcellent Idea!

Sorry, whee had to make at least one egg yolk . . . I mean joke! Well, let me get straight to the point, this wheekend is Easter wheekend. And I am proud to launch our three contests in our Easter EGGstraviganza.


Contest 1:

Surprise! What treat would you like to find in your Easter Egg this year? I think most hoomans would want to find me! Send in a pigture of inside your egg. If you need a template there are lots on google. Send your eggs in by 9pm UK time, Saturday 30th March to with results being announced on 31st.

Contest 2:

The Easter Bunny has fallen on hard times with the recent financial uncertainty. In a bid to raise awareness of his plight whee need you to write a poem about how busy the Easter Bunny is and how hard it is for him right now. You could even make a story of it, about how you save Easter! Please send your poems to by 9pm UK time, on Saturday 30th March with results being announced on the 31st.

Contest 3:

Our third and final contest is one of our classics. A photo contest! Please send us your Easter themed pet portraits to us. They can be photoshopped and editted, or staged with props and/or costumes. There will be a prize for each category. Whether you are a hamster in an egg box or a puppy in a basket whee want to see! Send those in by 9pm UK time on Sunday 31st March with winners to be announced within the next couple of days. Send them attached as jpegs to


Well what are you waiting for?! Certainly not more of my jokes! Let the fun commence!

An Epic Journey . . .

So as you know I have been a little under the weather and Mummy was worried about me. Today when whee got up my breathing sounded strange and crackly like when I was ill before. I did not realise how worried Mummy was until she got out the ‘Blue-Box-Of-Doom’. Otherwise known as our pet carrier. Unlike Doctor Who’s Tardis, it is not bigger on the inside and it doesn’t take me to exciting planets. It takes me to the vet.

Usually I travel alone but today Nibbles came along. He grumbled all the way. It was too cold. Too bouncy. Too noisy. To blue. Never satisfied that one!

When whee got to the vets I was quite panicked. And when I got panicked my breathing sounded even worse. When whee sat in the waiting room Mummy opened the box and let me climb up and see who else was there. I met Merlin, the black cat suffering from allergies and a rabbit who wishes to remain anonymous due to the sensitive nature of his issue! (It’s too much for a family blog such as this, particularly if you are eating while you read this!)

By the time my name was called I was pretty relaxed. In the consultation room they took Nibbles out first. He made a lot of noise. Squeaking and scratching and from what I was told he also wacked the vet round the face and kept head butting her. Mummy was very embarrassed.

Then came my turn. It wasn’t too bad. The vet told me I was a little slender. I wheeked my thanks and began telling her all it takes is a good diet and exercise regime, but she interupted me by plonking me on a freezing cold bowl. I was quite offended. Then she got the nail clippers out. Nibbles wheeked that that had been what he had been making a fuss about. The vet told me I was a good boy. Unlike with Nibbles she did not have to call for a nurse to hold me down. Yes, Nibbles needed restraining for his pedicure! Laugh if you want to, I know I did!

Unfortunately he is the one laughing now. My URI has returned and I am now on a two wheek course of an anti-biotics called baytril. Twice a day! The only upside if Mummy is buying some more probiotic powder to add to my water as she says the baytril kills all bacteria, even the good ones so she needs to keep me strong. The reason this is good is because I absolutely LOVE the taste!

Anyway I’d better go and get the first dose over with. Wish me luck.


PS. Sorry whee haven’t got any pigtures today. Mummy had some more bad news today so whee have been a bit too all over the place to take any. But here is a little video of a guinea pig trained to do flyball which whee think is amazing. Whee saw some doggies on the TV coverage of the dog show Crufts doing this and now Mummy has it in her head that she can train us to run around . . . . Not happening!

Happy Mummy’s Day!

Whee have just published it to youtube . . . here is a video of messages to our very special pawrents. Please like and share and follow us!

Whee will be doing a pig-update on the goings on in the Hutch in a few hours time.

Also, whee are still working on getting round all the blogs to say hello again so sorry if whee have not reached you yet, whee are on our way! *strikes dramatic pose* After dinner of course!

Mummy’s Boys?

Would you like to star in a video? Whee decided, maybe three minutes ago now, that whee would like to make a Mother’s Day video. Whee are just picking a song now.

So what does this have to do with you? Well whee are asking you to please send a pigture of you to . You can include a little message for your Mummy if you would like to and whee may include some.

Whee particularly want group pigtures or pigtures with your hoomans or just you looking adorable. Maybe even causing trouble you know your Mummy will forgive.

By entering it here you are giving us permission to use it in our video which whee do plan to put on youtube.

Please get them to us by midday tomorrow to give us time to work on it. Whee know it is short notice!

Thank you and Happy Mothers Day.

Nibbles, Nutty, Buddy & Basil

ps. Whee have finished our little break now and are back for good. After the sad loss of our Mummy’s Granny whee were struggling to come on here but whee really are back now!

pps. It has just been pointed out that not all of you will celebrate Mother’s Day tomorrow like us but you are all welcome to join in anyway. Any excuse to pamper the hoomans and improve the treat chances!

Drawn Out Of Our Shells

Whee have been finding it so hard to think of things to do and write to get us back into posting regularly and then whee got this and now whee remember why whee do this. It’s because whee love you guys.

Let us explain what this is. It is a gift by the highly talented friend and artist of ours J M Shadow. She is a wonder isn’t she?!

Wonderful drawing of Hutch A Good Life Piggies by J M Shadow

Here whee all are from left to right Buddy, Basil, Nutty and Nibbles.

Now whee would love to hear what you think of this as whee are also going to give the blog a makeover with some of J M Shadow’s artwork. Also if there is anything you would like us to do or write about please say, whee love feedback and ideas.

Thanks for sticking with us and whee love you all!

Nibbles. Nutty, Buddy & Basil
