A page for those piggies who have gone to piggy heaven.
Minnie Pig - was my first guinea pig as a child. The pictures of Minnie were taken in 1996.
My Mum came up with the name Minnie Pig for my first little girl. She had lovely markings and very cool funky hair!
These pictures were taken before the world of digital photography and unfortunately are not very clear. Minnie Pig grew up to have lots of lovely long hair.
Cinnamon and Spice
Cinnamon and Spice - having had a lone piggy to start with I managed to pursuade my parents to let me have two so they had each other for company. When I went to university these lovely girls were looked after by a family who spent a lot of time away during school holidays. It was the perfect arrangement at the time as they were always given lots of love and attention. Term time with friends and holidays at home with me.
Cinnamon and Spice
Cinnamon was a lovely ginger piggy. Spice had markings that reminded me of an all-sort. These girls passed away in 2003/2004.
'The Girls' - Jane
'The Girls' I have struggled to find names for my pets over the years and these lovely girls were always known as 'The Girls'. My Auntie Kate bought these piggies as a birthday present for me in 2005. They lived at home with my parents for a while when I moved to a flat which had no outside space but when I moved house and cleared the garden they moved with me! Sadly both my girls passed away in 2011 and did find names over the years - Jane and Princess.
'The Girls' - Princess
Jane and Princess were bought from a pet shop although I now look for other places to collect other piggies for my herd!
Tiny was the 'runt' of Fizzy's litter. She weighed just 38g when born compared to the other babies who weighed around 75g each. Sadly Tiny passed away after a few days.
Daisy arrived on 24 September 2011 with her sister Molly. She was quite shy and nervous when she arrived but settled well.
Daisy passed away unexpectedly during the night of 31 October 2011.
