We come in peace

Just a little present to promote peace between the tribes...

Guinea Pig-less

More bad news....

Our last guinea pig, Wesley (aka the WZA) was put to sleep yesterday. He hadn't been eating for a few days and when we took him to get checked out, the vet said he had the early stages of cancer and would die soon, in a slow and painful manner. He was an old man (a grumpy old man)--a few months shy of six years old, and we knew that any sickness would be his last. Wanting to save him the agony, we decided to put him to sleep. He went quietly and peacefully, and we buried him in a local park next to his brother, Sauce.

Now we have no guinea pigs and no real plans to obtain another, at least for a long time. The house feels a bit less cute now.

More GP toons coming soon though!

The smell of frying laptop

I was just getting used to drawing on my old laptop using a pen stylus and Photoshop, now the puter starts acting very erratically. The screen on the old girl is burning itself out after seven years of valiant service. I'll have to go back to scanning my pictures at work though I will have to post them raw, since my old copy of PS doesn't work on my new laptop.

Whatever keeps the GPs flowing. We'll get this figured out.

Wyoming Peeg

One of the numerous snapshots from our recent vacation out west. This is totally not recommended, but how could Lyra-pig resist?
