Memorial Day Wheeekend

I took a couple of days off to spend a long Memorial Day Wheeekend with the Princess. A few of my friends from Virginia came to visit us, so that was quite a treat. Princess Snowflake was on her best behavior, and my friends seemed to be quite amused at her silly ways. View Blog>>

Sunday, Funday!

It was a Sunday afternoon and the Princess was doing her usual eating, pooping and, you know, just generally enjoying life. Sunday is by far her most favorite day of the wheek because she gets full pig service. View Blog>>

The Games Wheeee Play

When I first saw Princess Snowflake at the Char-Meck Animal Shelter, I suspected that she was a playful guinea pig. My volunteer coordinator had called me the day before and told me they had a new piggie in. I figured I'd check on the bunnies and hamsters and see what this new guinea pig was all about.

Guinea Pig Personalities

What amazes me most about our precious guinea pig friends is that each and every one of them has their own personality. I am frequently telling non-piggie people about my past and current piggies' personalities and usually they are pleasantly surprised and quite amused. View Blog>>

Princess Snowflake's ‘80s Dance Party

After I get home from work, I always tend to the pig before I do anything else. Otherwise, I will hear about it later and I really don't like to be punished. Essentially, I let the Princess run around the living and dining rooms while I refresh her cage. Then I give her a grape or something small to hold her over until dinnertime. View Blog>>

Lunchtime With The Princess

I just returned to my office from what I like to call "Lunchtime with the Princess.” I recently moved to an apartment located down the street from work, so now I can go home for lunch every day to perform my pig duties and also get my midday piggie fix. View Blog>>
