Bathing songs

(in David Attenborough voice) "It is common amongst piggies to sing each other little songs whilst their mate is bathing."

Don't say I didn't warn you...

They don't like sunscreen.

With the moving-in of this year's freshmen, we can no longer deny that school is definitely upon us. We'll both be teaching this semester, so enroll in the precept with the guinea pigs as leaders!

Back to the books!

The Family album

Here are some shots of the happy pig family:

Here is our oldest, Chumley -- we brought him home in February 2006:

Chumley, as the first, spent a lot of time only in the company of humans and so he is most affectionate of the three and least socially ept amongst guinea pigs. He's enormous (3 lbs last checkup!). He doesn't wheak much but loves to snuggle.

This is Sauce (brought home Nov. 2006):

Sauce is a little pepper pot. Rambunctious, athletic, curious to a fault and always making noise. He climbs like monkey and can get into almost anything. He was boss of the cage for a long time, but now that Wesley's bigger he's enduring a serious challenge to his hegemony.

And the baby, Wesley, who we got in March 2007:

(This pic was not considered cute enough to be on Cute Overload, but I'm pretty sure it was only because she has had a lot of pics of pouty rodents...)

Wesley is of course a whole lot bigger now. He is very deferential to Chumley, but doesn't let Sauce get away with anything. So there's a lot of chuttering in the cage nowadays. He's coming around to being affectionate, mostly with his mommy, but isn't so sure about me.
