  1. 14 free Uhaul pads

    I went to the Uhaul store in town the other day to see if they had any of the recycled denim pads. Since the University of Iowa campus is downtown, all the students are getting ready to move back and Uhaul had stocked up on moving supplies. There were piles of rental furniture pads sitting outside, so we talked to an employee asking if we could have the old rentals when they were ready to throw them away. The employee said he would talk to his manager and get back to us.

    We didn't ...

  2. Guinea pigs on Jackie Chan Adventures!

    I was watching Jackie Chan Adventures (It's an awesome show, with some adult humor ) and in one of the episode, Toru accidentally turned some monks into wheeking guinea pigs. It was cool to see something with guinea pigs, but they had tiny tails; I'm sure most kids would have overlooked that, but they couldn't escape the eyes of a cavy slave!

    At the end of the episode, it showed all of the pigs wheeking, and it made Trudy wheek, too!
  3. I'm pigsitting!

    One of my friends is out of town with her boyfriend and won't be back for 5 days, so I'm watching her 3 guinea pigs and dog. With her 3, my 2 fosters and then my 5, we have 10 guinea pigs, 2 parakeets, a dog and a pet rock in my house! I feel like the crazy guinea pig lady of my street.

    My friend really loves her pigs, but it's so hard for me not to point out some of the incorrect things. Like, she feeds them pellets with the colored bits and seeds, and she used to feed them ...

  4. Guinea pig funnies

    I can get some pretty funny reactions from people when I tell them about my guinea pigs. Here's a couple I just wanted to share.

    My mom took a picture of Trudy, my abby, and showed it to a friend at work yesterday. My mom's friend said, "She's really cute. How do you get her hair like that?" So my mom said, "Well, every morning, Morgan wakes up at 7:00 o'clock and sprays her hair down with water, then she takes a comb and styles it, then she puts hairspray on it to keep ...

  5. Possibly another pig down the road

    A co-worker of my mom's has been looking to get a guinea pig for her kids for sometime now. I know her daughter just had a birthday, and today she asked if she could buy one of my old cages, so I'm sure she's close to buying one if she hasn't already. I sent her a four page care sheet about guinea pigs a month or so ago, hoping she would see that her kids probably aren't ready for that kind of responsibility, but I don't think it mattered too much.

    Don't get me wrong, she has good ...
