||Three years old|
is our frilly dressed long hair guinea pig. With his brother
Lennie, they are our manly pig duo. He spends his day climbing his hay
rack for the best hay (which of course we "hide" at the top), emptying
his pellet dish, and wheeking to announce to the house that he's
ascending or descending the ramp in his split level piggy house.
Pigwidgeon also enjoys annoying his brother and trying to intimidate him
with his frilly bum, rumbling at him through the wall separating their
sides of the pighouse.
Here is one of my favorite poses for Pigwidgeon. When he looks up and
sniffs for veggies, his eyes disappear into his coloring and can
barely be seen. Add in his cute little smile and he's just
irresistible. During snuggle time Pigwidgeon often will chat for
several minutes telling us about his day - pellets, ramp, hay, hay,
nap, hay, ramp, pellets, nap... Very important details.
He's very cuddly, although he'll deny it. We love our cute widgeon.
Pig ... widgeon.
