Santa Paws Grotto!

I understand it is traditional to pay a visit to a certain Mr Santa Paws type person at this time of year.

My invaluable advice would be to go and see him as soon as possible so you can give him all your special requests nice and early. Although why this request process differs from my usual daily talk to Mummy, I do not know.

Here I am all nice and comfy, having a quiet word in his ear. It does seem unusually pesky piggy free and peaceful around here.

Dear Santa Paws, I need you to organise three tons of organic carrots, a few dozen extra juicy cucumbers, plenty of mixed lettuce leaves, a 100 bales of your finest meadow hay, 126 jolly cosy beds, 253 cuddle cups, two lawns worth of munchy leaves of the greenest ever grass . . . and . . .

Whoooa there. What on earth caused that soft furnishings related earthquake?

Oh, I might have known.

Do keep still, Pixie, I haven’t finished my very important discussions with the beardy one yet. In fact I’d hardly even got started with my basic essentials Christmas ‘must have without fail or else there will be big bother’, wish list.

Oh Pixie, I appreciate that all this talk of food may be making you peckish, but do stop nibbling his beard.

Now, where was I?

Oh yes, can you please also organise a very, very, very big sack of cereals, a few 1000 bunches of juicy dandelions . . .

Sorry Bear, yes I do appreciate that you have been extraordinarily patient and everything, but I haven’t finished. We haven’t even posed for a Christmas Card type family photo portrait yet.

Pixie, that may well be your ‘best side’, but I do have to finish my list.

Have I missed anything important do you think?

DAAAADY! Do something about Pixie – NOW!

She’s going? About time too!

Watch where you’re pointing that rear end Pixie.

Err, I feel I should warn you Fairy, a certain rather rotund type Bear is about to invade your space.

Oh good grief. What bear faced cheek! Get this furry mountain out of my ear!!!

Oooofh! There are times when a well mannered little Fairy just can’t take any more – DAAAADDY!

Order! You’ve got to hand it to him!

Come on you two, it’s time for our official Santa Pawtrait, gather round NOW.

Pixie, what are you up to? OH! Well, you should have thought about that before we started.

Oh for goodness sake you two. Lets get the portrait thingy over and done with and then I can get back to making my demands, er requests, of that Mr Christmas type Santa Paws person.

Everyone say ‘Salad’!

Yes, I know tinsel is itchy – serves you both right for being so obstreperous?

Now where was I? Oh yes, 245 blankies, 126 tasty nibbles incase of emergency hunger pangs between snacks . . .

And why, I hear you all asking, does one little Piggy need all these provisions and treats? Well I want them delivering to all the Guinea Pig Rescues and Communities who help my furry friends all around the world so that Piggies less fortunate than us can be helped to have a nice life too.

A very Happy Santa Paws day to you all, may it be filled to brimming with Fairy-Magic!

Santa Has Been!

Hay, Hay, HAY! Quick everybody, WAKE-UP – Santa has been!

Come on you lazy piggy type tykes, time to get up . . . NOW!

Oh-ho! A special delivery from Daddy-Postie. What’s that tasty looking piece of eminently munchable paper for, Pixie?

It’s a Christmas card – and it’s for us, Bear!

Oh yes, look. And the words and pic are SO appropriate – it being Christmas and everything. How clever!

Oh wow, it’s from our Auntie Debs. Thank you Auntie Debs. Merry Pigmas to YOU too!

This is for Fairy, Bear. Do you think she would mind if we, sort of accidentally opened it .  .  .

YES I jolly WOULD mind, thank you very much, indeed! STEP AWAY FROM THE FAIRY PRESENT!!!!!

Pass it over to me Mummy. I can unwrap it – all – by – myself!

Thank you Mummy – you can go now and be quick about it. Oh and take those handy pressie opening scissors type things with you.

Oh my! A super Mr Woody-Love-Heart-Button-Bear, just for me. FAB! PERFECT!

I LOVE him! Thank you ever so muchly Auntie Debs, xxx!

But . . . but . . . Mummy, are there ANY presents for little, tiny me and little (oops, I mean MEDIUM) Bear?

We have both been very, very good – all week (well almost some of it, nearly!)

A pressie for us – at last – okay Daddy, you keep a firm grip and I’ll investigate.

Rip! Tear!

What’s all the noisy fuss about? You disturbed my beauty nap, Pixie.

Goodness, gracious me – is that a, a, a TIGER? Yikes!!!!

The box is always the safest, err I meant ‘best’ bit! I’ll just check this for playfullabilityness.

Not that I don’t appreciate the contents too, thank you Santa!

Woo-hoo come on then Bear. Now Fairy is safely ensconced in that cardboard tunnel arrangement – it’s time to get serious and get playing!

There seems to be an abundance of extra crinkly wrapping paper . . . brilliant for zooming through at top speed – wheeeeeeee!

Are there any MORE goodies? I thought it was traditional to leave the BIG present to last.

Ooooooooooh – look Bear, it seem to be the biggest Bag-O-Balls – EVER!!!!

Jolly nice and colourful they look too Pixie. Errrr, what on earth are they for, do you think?

They look a bit scary – I’ll just go and check on, on, on – the hay situation. Bye!

Oh, you are such a big softie Bear. Being a jolly brave investigative Pixie, I am going to investigate . . .

C’mon Bear, don’t worry, those really scary ball monsters won’t get you, very much!

Look! We can play the Ball-Snuff-A-Long game. Whizz about, scooting around, nosing them out the way – to find tasty treat type treats and other things!

Just what do you two think you’re looking at – exactly?

Relax everybody – they don’t like Salad.

Talking of Salad, all this Christmas fun and frivolity has made me feel rather peckish.

But before snacks, I must just say a huge thank you, to all our lovely friends all around the world and particularly you, Santa.

We have had a lovely, lively day, and we really love our Ballroom!

Thank you, thank you, thank YOU xxxxx

Fairy’s Forrest!

With Christmas Day only a few short sleeps away – Fairy is in the Piggery, getting very excited.

 

Hmmmh, let me see now, who is this wonderfully beautiful, hand crafted creation from? I recognise the paw-writing.

Oh goodness me – it’s from my favourite ever Princess, Auntie Alice.

How clever of her – it’s petitte, decorous and tasteful – just like little ol’ me! And it’s very useful too – with all these presents I needed another tree to put them under.

I pity the poor Postie at this time of year – having to make so many deliveries to the Piggery.

This wrapping paper looks very tasteful – I might have a crafty nibble or two when Mummy isn’t looking!

Not only do my pressies look pretty, they’re very comfy to sit on too.

I wonder where these came from?

Gosh – they’re from Great, Great Dame Auntie Rachel – well at least the paper was tasteful!
