For those that have 2 or more piggies, do you have a most favorite?

And if so who is it and why is he/she your most favorite?

Although I know alot of people including me try so hard at not playing favorites it isn't always easy.

My most favorite piggy is CoCo. The reason is because she is my brave pig and she greets me at the side of the cage every time I go by and wants her nose or ears scratched while the others run and hide. My 2nd favorite is a tie between the remaining 3. They are all so quirky and have their own personalities and I can't imagine not having them around.

I don't think I have a favorite, but I do get along a little better with Cocoa. I've had him over a year and he's so sweet and always comes to the side of the cage to say hello. Pippin is still really skittish, and he's kind of a biter.

My favorite piggy is Dagwell because I've known him longer and sometimes I think that hae feels he owes me because i adopted him and saved him which is cool.. I like ATticus because i am still learning about him and its kind of challenging, but entertaining.

I have alot of piggies but I do have one special piggie that is my favorite. Holly is cause when she was born she was not afraid to eat out of my hand and be picked up. She was a special baby.Holly and I had a special bond until Jan 10th she passed on to the rainbow bridge. Even though I only knew her for 3 weeks but she was special.

My other favorite piggie before Holly and still is Prince Fluffy, He loves to be petted and lets me give him a belly rub. If he doesnt get what he wants he pouts until I give him attention. He is a ladies man meaning he all ways have to show off his but to the girls on the other side.

They all are my favorite but Holly and I has a special bond that I will always cherish for the rest of my life and Prince on the other hand is a great piggie and always put a smile on my face.

I have 2 girls, Penny I had first, Nickel I got a week or 2 after as a cage mate. Penny and I bonded really fast and I gave her more attention, Nickel is more skittish and I have spent less time with her. Penny will always be first in my heart but Nickel is a sweetheart and I care for her deeply also.

I have 2 females but their personality is too different to pick a favorite. One likes to come outside more, and begs standing on her back paws, and the other likes to sit on me lap and lies on her side, which is really funny. So I couldn't pick one!

I would have to say that more often than not my favorite is Frisky...she is the herd leader and always is first out to greet me, first out of the cage to explore the room during free time and she acts more like a dog sometimes. When I walk into the freetime room she will walk beside me and follow me around the room (which makes walking a very slow and careful process). She is also brave as she walks up to the room door and just sniffs at the dog through the grids which strikes me as brave but not wise. I like all of them for their own little personalities but Frisky is the one the asks for and gets the most adoration.

I hate picking favorites. It makes me feel bad =( But, my favorite piggs is Walter. He's a skinny pig, who loves to be held and cuddled. He has never biten me or tried to run away. He's very personable, and when I had to bring him to get fixed, the staff at the hospital fell in love with him. Upon his return to the hospital they were so excited to see him! It really is love at first sight with him. I call him baby Waltz. I have 4 other pigs also, and they all are so different from eachother. But Agnes is my second favorite because she loves to be held and loves people too...she's a little purr bug!

CoCo did a first last night with me. When the girls are out in the kitchen for floortime, I will usually go in there and sit on a small foot stool that I bring in there from the living room. Well yesterday I forgot my foot stool so I just sat on the kitchen floor and the next thing I knew here came CoCo and she climbed up into my lap and laid down to be petted. It was the cutest thing. The other girls saw it and they came to investigate and they put their paws on my leg and stood there looking but didn't venture into my lap. It's just the little things like this that make CoCo my favorite piggie. I think I will be leaving the foot stool behind from now on when it's floortime and sit on the floor. Eventually maybe the other girls will be brave enough to crawl up in my lap.

Moppy is still getting used to floortime, she has hers in the bathroom because she is still in quarantine but when I tried sitting on the bathroom floor, she went into one corner and stayed there until I got up.

With my piggies I try to never pick them up..I have my wife or kids do that. I go into their room when it floor time and I sometimes lay down and read a book or something and they all come out and climb on me and such....Lately my dominant one has been following me like my dog follows and when I lay down with them she start popcorning and playing with me by running up to me, nibbling on me, popcorning, and runnning away and then back...I have my hand chase her and she runs around and comes back and popcorns again, its so neat that they do this....it has taken about a month for her to get used to me laying on the floor but now she actively plays with me.

My favorite is Boo, mainly because I got her first and I bonded with her first. She has a terrible attitude and squeals when I pick her up which makes me feel bad. My other one, Mouse, is the sweetest guinea pig in the world. If you put her on your chest she climbs up and puts her head right under your chin. My boyfriend likes her because she is more amiable, so I feel I have to stand by my first pig.

I really could not choose favorites. Chubby is a total sweetheart, we bonded right from his birth. I can't remember if he ever ran away with me, but he's been with me his entire life. He loves other pigs, but no one seems to like him! He's in a cage by himself, but that dosen't stop him from coming to the front of the cage every time someone comes near to lick them. If you stroke his whole body he popcorns and runs away.
Ruby is the dominant one, but so sweet! She comes up to me all the time and just licks like crazy! She lets me pet her anytime, but sadly I've only seen her popcorn a few times. She mainly purrs and walks around... I've never seen her active!
Simon is a down-right bully, but I love him so much! I do get mad though when he pushes Fred out of the way for his food. I sometimes shoo him off the 2nd level to let Fred get some food, or put some food for Fred on the first. Simon's a licking monster when he has his good days(meaning all the food he wants, all the petting he wants, and all the attention from the girls next door).
Sam is a total sweetheart too, just not as much as Chubby. He's blind, but he still dosen't care who pets him or who he licks. He occasionally runs away if you pet him, but not usually. He shares his 2x6 with another male and loves all the space. He does bump into the walls sometimes... Part of his charm! And then RJ, his sister, is a sweetie but does nibble and lick at the same time. Then Kawaii is my total tomboy, she does anything one of the girls won't do! Dosen't let me pet her yet, but comes up to me all the time... for food. Pippy is a foster, and a doll! He's handsome, to me, timid, but not so much. He seems so lonely, as he's never been with another guinea pig. When he first came to me he purred like crazy from hearing and smelling all the other pigs. He's been with me for more than a month. I have other pigs, but if I said anymore my post would be humungi!
