Minty’s Marvellous Wedding Dress!

Fairy took Minty to choose her wedding dress the other day. Plans are well under way for ‘The Wedding Of The Year’. The invitations will be in the post any day – look out for yours!

Here’s Fairy to take us through the proceedings.

Morning, Mr Bear. It is so kind of you to offer to make Minty’s wedding dress. We spotted some of your marvellous creations when we went up to London. You are so talented! We want nothing but the best for Minty.

Yes, this is a gorgeous fabric, this cotton matches perfectly.

This is a beautiful shade too . . . pale pink, just like my ears!

Oh! Oh! Oh! I am going to . . . SNEEZE! Atichoo! S’cuse me!

Yeees . . . . it is quite lovely as well.

What do you reckon, Mr Bear?

The shade suits your fur colouring so well.

Handle With Care!

Fairy is usually a very clean piggy but occasionally she gets ‘kebab toes’. Grubby little paws from paddling though ‘unmentionables’. If she washes herself with these ‘gloves’ she resembles a tiger with her pig-made stripes. Very un-Fairy-like!

It isn’t quite as pleasant cuddling a piggy with grubby toes and stripy fur – especially if she is a little smelly!

A soak in the bath and a Fairy sized nail brush are required to remove these baked on gloves. A good wash with some Gorgeous Guineas shampoo, Fairy favours Posh’n’Go, and she is back to her usual spick and span self once more.

What a lovely day.

Hum . . . . is something wrong?

A couple of hours later . . . . .

They’ve gone! I have had my bath.

Look! Thanks to Gorgeous Guineas Shampoo I’m all clean

and shiny now and my toes are just like new!

On Top Of The World!

It has been a very long winter. Five months of what seemed like perpetual cold, wet and windy weather. According to the experts however, this weekend promises to be the warmest of the year so far! A mini heat wave no less! Good! The gang (piggy and people alike) can’t wait to get back to serious lawn mowing duties!

They have a custom built, (by Daddy), secure outdoor run arrangement enabling them to spend a couple of hours safely nibbling the grass, romping round and snoozing in the spring sunshine.

When the sun is shining everything seems a lot more exciting. The days are longer and there is more piggy quality time available!

A few weeks ago on a bright and crisp Spring morning, I introduced Fairy to a little taste of what’s to come with a few minutes in the sun a’top Big Mavis.

Mmmm, this is lovely! I could quite get used to it.

I can ‘see’ for miles perched up here! Oh look – is that Mariella over there?

All this freshness has gone up my nose! The air smells so . . . . tasty!

Soon be time for home-grown grassy nibbles.

Spring Is In The Fur!

Like most guineas Fairy likes to feel the warm sun on her fur!

It is nice to sit out with your friends too.

Even if you can’t go out, it is good to know the sun is shining!

Summer Pignic!

In September Fairy had some friends over to join her for an pignic.

Here she is with her friend Ginny enjoying some salad snacks.

Ginny is 6 years old and is just about the cuddliest piggy I have ever cuddled!

And with Baby-Maybe. She lives with Ginny.

She was one of the beautiful guinea pigs we rescued along with Fairy’s mum.
