    Re: Herbie, our last piggie...

    It was Kaytee Pine, which I've used before with out problem. There may have been something else, but that is as much as I can determine.

    Re: Ichibod passed away Monday night

    Thank you all.

    I was able to bury him near a nice strawberry patch in the yard this afternoon.

    I did notice while I was holding him that he had a broken tooth, so I do think that once he...

    I don't know when exactly, but when I went to feed the piggies this morning, Ichibod was laying on his side on the floor. I've had him and Herbie in an open topped pin, as I normally do, and some...

    Ok, we made it. We planned it as a three day trip in case we had to deal with a fussy baby or other issues. It's actually a 16 hour trip even going at full speed because you have mountains, other...

    All options have been exhausted. I've looked into all those things already. We are at the point where it's down to the three of us in a truck with the pigs. Thanks for the advice everyone.

    I suggested that one as well, but she's not wanting to split up at all really. There's not been a lot of options for how to travel in all honesty. I would have loved to have been able to have two...

    We have two regular vehicles. we were going to tow one, but decided that it was best to ship both on a carrier.

    Also, we are expecting the weather to still be rather cool along the east coast...

    We have 4 different car seats (gifts, purchases etc) and we will go with the best fit rear facing in the middle of the seat between us.

    There won't be any room in the cab other than under foot and with two boys and two girls, so two carriers at minimum. Plus the gerbil's cage which is one of the old pig mini carriers.

    Re: About a Costco membership

    If you have a BJ's around, avoid it. They are not a wholesale club, just a bulk retail.

    Re: Bagged Lettuce?

    I end up using the 6 pack bags of Romaine hearts from Sam's club as it ends up cheaper weight wise than the local stands. Plus mine do eat the core (crossing to other thread with this comment).
