Camping Pigs

News about piggies: 

Einstein scared the bejeezus out of Cindy a couple of weeks ago. He jumped from her grasp, fell on his face, broke his teeth and went on as usual. His THIRD time doing this crazy stunt.

I think he loves the attention he gets from being injured because without his teeth, we have to pick him up, hand feed him tiny pieces of soft green veggies. And of course, he gets to eat all of HIS food, with no Darwin around to steal share.

Cindy felt so bad she cried. She really does treat them just like her own grandpiggies. I think piggies are very lucky to have such a GREAT grandmammaw who spoils them rotten!

Bill & Cindy planned a camping a while back ago and wanted to bring them pigs along. Problem was, with Jumpy performing such a stunt, anyone would be afraid to bring him along. 

They resorted to buying them a leash, or attempted to buy each of them one. Well, surprise, surprise...Fatty could not fit into his leash!


From what I gathered, Einstein's leash was a wee bit too big for the skinny pig, so Cindy had to tighten it real well. While Darwin just had to be content with no leash.

She said, " I ain't worry about Darwin. I can outrun that one! It's Einstein I am worried about."

I really like Einstein's leash. He looks like a military pet, like those cool military K-9s, serving his country to take care of all the WEED! 

WHEEK, WHEEK...Yes, We WEED THEM OUT, one NOM at a time!

Military pig in ACTION...WEEDING is hard work.

Not to forget, piggies always have their best guard around:

Cindy told me that whenever piggies chatter their teeth, which is often, Harley would ask to be picked up so she can check on them. That particular sound they make can come off sounding scary to those not used to them but usually it happens when they are kinda fighting for FOOD, haha (Remember Darwin steals Einstein's food all the time!). 

Harley must worry about them getting into a fight or something. Isn't she sweet?

Harley: " Let me check on those cuties."

"Woof! Woof! They are FINE, maw! Bring me a BBQ sausage!"

Nice BED!

Spoilt pig!

Knackered after camping!

Thank you, Cindy and Bill for taking piggies out for this adventure. It's their FIRST!

  17. Hey it's Jet here. Hi Miss Sankissjuice.

    Wowee wow wow, piggies on a leash, never have seen that before. We had a piggy named Oreo Elvis (he had the oreo coloring an the Elvis cowlick!) Wonder if he would have enjoyed the leash. So kind of their grandmawmaw to care for them while you are away. )

  18. Oh it is so nice they got to go to such a loving home, even one where they take them on trips. I bet that eases your mind so much. Love seeing them both and really love the leash. Bert said if he ever meets them, he would be happy to take them on a walk. He is really good at walking other dogs on lead, a piggy should be no problem at all.

  19. Woo! Hoo! Camping Piggies! Me is impressed!

Einstein, you need to chill out a little my sweet pal. You both have a super lovey home and that makes me happy.

  23. Oh now! Not the teeth... I hope that the Piggy Tooth Fairy showed up after that.

  24. I told them they don't need to put that ridiculous leash on these pigs since these pigs don't even run, but it makes them feel better, I guess.

  25. How cool is that Einstein and Darwin camping! Wahoo! I laughed myself silly at Einstein on his leash. So cute! :D

    Waggin at ya,

  26. Hey, my person just realized that we need to scroll down and they we can see your blog! (She says she has a little computer.)

    I like piggies. I meet them in the summer with my people at a place called "petting zoo". I watch and sniff, and watch and sniff. But I am Good Dog. I do not pounce, and I do not chase. I just like to watch and sniff.

    You little piggies are so very cute!
