Well, I introduced Cupid to my new pig, Sylvester. Just as I thought, they hit it off wonderfully! At first Sylvester followed Cupid around everywhere crying "are you my mother??" And when I say he followed him everywhere, I mean nose to butt -- like a little choo choo train! Cupid is very tolerant and seems to enjoy his new cagemate. It´s kind of funny though because Cupid has gotten a bit tired of Sly´s antics at times but is very gentle about his reprimands. I´ve watched him pull Sly up by the hair on his neck and kind of drop him. He does it a couple of times and Sylvester seems to get the message. It´s really cute to see them interact, and it´s kind of odd that a boar that´s never been around babies would take on the role of big brother so naturally.

I took some pictures of them, and I think they make an absolutely adorable pair. I hope you enjoy them.

They are just dolls!!!
Sylvester almost looks like a toy. I´m so glad they have each other!

Sylvester is just the cutest thing ever. I´m so happy for you. Here´s hoping Cupid is just as patient when Sylvester discovers what his boy-parts can do.

Thanks! I think they are pretty darn cute. And yes, Sly does look like a little toy!

Ciaytee, I LOVE your avatar!

Why, thank you. Had to show off my guys, and yours was the best pic of them. I´m still waiting for either Lynx or Nuts to send me the instructions on how to make the rotating avatar so´s I can show off my other two.

How is Sylvester taking to you? Is he warming up and becoming snuggly, or are you just something to be endured in order to get treats?

Well, he´s a bit moody really. Sometimes he´s very snugly but others he´s hyper and won´t sit still. The last picture I posted was of me holding him in a specially adapted uncooperative piggy hold. It´s effective if not appreciated....

He´s a youngster, he´ll chill out eventually.

Oh geesh, Stacia, the picture of the "kids" are really adorable! And, your captions sent me off into a gale of giggles...you´re so comical! LOL...

Oh yea, that "specially adapted uncooperative piggy hold" business is something I´m getting VERY familiar with! Since I got little Apatchie for ChiChi´s playmate, all that snuggly business came to a screeching halt. That little traitor, ChiChi, used to be my snuggle bunny...I did, of course, have to be pretty fast even back then come to think of it when it came to catching her IN the crib, but, she´s gone TURBO on me now!! LOL... And, Apatchie is even faster. Needless to say, snuggles and smoochies are few and far between with both of these little furballs of mine...*sniff sniff*...I just love holding them---uhm, when I can catch one of them, of course.

I´ve been thinking and scheming.....maybe a butterfly net.....??? LOL....

Stacia, they are adorable! Where do you find the dandelion greens this time of year? Don´t you have snow there??

Cupid is my Sweetheart´s long lost twin brother! Right down to the slightly green stain around the mouth from his greens.

What precious pigs! Congrats, Stacia, that they seem to be getting along very well.

IAMPM, some Meijer´s stores carry dandelion greens. The one on Gull Road in Kalamazoo, Michigan does, for example.

I GAVE, dammit!

they are too cute! And look at how nicely Sly´s smut is coming in. He is gonna be a real beauty.

Thanks everyone, they really are great pigs.

That´s where I get the dandelion greens too, PM (pm=pig mom. work with me, K?.) I pay a 1.27 a bunch I think.

Well, hi Stargazer! Glad to see your still around!

Alibabble, is Sweetheart your pigs name or a term of endearment?

KM, are you serious? You think it´s coming along OK? I think it will be a very small and localized kind of thing like his mom´s, but the smallness of it will be what makes it so cute.
