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
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!

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!"|
|Knackered after camping!|
Thank you, Cindy and Bill for taking piggies out for this adventure. It's their FIRST!
