Speedy (black)
Bell (multicolored)... don't have a good pic of her as I recently wiped my phone and didn't back up the pictures like an idjit.

Only piggy I've ever seen that was totally black all over... not a splotch anything else anywhere.

Tough to photograph, we call her The Night Pig.

Your pig is just beautiful. It's so nice to meet both of you.

Weed control with the piggies. There's a patch of clover coming up in this part of the lawn.

You have absolutely gorgeous piggies! Speedy is beautiful! I have a weakness for solid black animals (probably because I had a black lab and a black cat as pets growing up haha) and Bell is just as beautiful!

Yes, I'd never seen an all black one before Speedy.

The fun thing about Bell is it looks like she's wearing dark eye makeup all the time.

RIP Speedy :(

Sudden tumor growth was malignant and inoperable.

I'm sorry for your loss...Speedy reminds me of my Bob, if less prickly and smoother. I'm sure she was a fantastic pig and I hope she didn't suffer. :(

She was the best... she would always come running to the edge of the cage when you came to it and when she was little she loved to run more than any piggy I've ever seen. Raised under the tutelage of Peeps (also RIP a few years back) to be the world greatest food-whore. Even under the harsh lights and cold metal of the vet's table she was munching away. She will be missed.

Your pigs are adorable, samwichse ! All of your pictures are beautiful, and I think I have the same hut as the one that's in the picture of moody Bell.

Found an old cellphone snap of Speedy (with Peeps) as a wee piggy.

Snow pig! Bell "in" the snow

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-14ANDsCgvE4/VsoGG0fNjPI/AAAAAAAAflM/4waF5yhhb_E/w1863-h1398-no/16%2B-%2B2

And to preempt people's worries... no guinea pigs were harmed in the making of these photos.

First, I cut out a plastic liner from an old nut container (thanks Costco for your oversized plastic bottles):
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-nh1nrTZ7Rug/VsoGG6PRy7I/AAAAAAAAflM/wZZ7YJ8r51A/w1863-h1398-no/P2150802.JPG

Then I lined it with a cloth towel... taking care to keep it low profile:
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-WVBmUWRchTI/VsoGG0WNb4I/AAAAAAAAflM/wip_lgapkyQ/w1863-h1398-no/P2150804.JPG

Then I carefully dug out a hole in the snow the size/shape of my guinea pig holder and nestled it in and pre-framed the shot with the camera so it's invisible and I can work fast:

And then I dropped Bell into the waterproofed, insulated, hidden sleeve and shot 20 frames at 5 fps and returned her to her cage. Her real expression in these pics is probably "Wait, what?"

So sorry for your loss. Speedy looks just like my little Georgina :love: You take awesome piggy pics too btw!!

I just thought "piggies would look so cute playing in the snow" but their feet would get almost instantly frozen if they touched it.

Plus when I'm cleaning out their cage, I just put them in an open-top Tupperware shoebox and they never try to hop out... no matter how far over the edge they may lean to beg for food. Institutionalized, I guess :).
