i bathe my guinea pigs once a year in the summer just to get some stink off them.
they dislike it very much! then they plot my death for several days and i have to appease them with carrots! one of my current pigs has never had a bath before.
that was not fun.

Pixie says "i don't suppose this will end well will it?"

Image

two monsters, one bath

Image

Poor Pelly had never gotten a bath before and was none too pleased. she kept trying to escape

Image

Penny, the monster brat, will most likely kill me in my sleep

Image

"your butt smells funny. what happened?"

Image

Pelly & Pixie, temporarily appeased with carrots

Oh shiitake they're adorable. What sweet piggies.

I have yet to meet a pig who likes bath time, but there is something really nice about the clean ball of fluff.

Wet guinea pig smells so bad though. Worse than dog.

I'm weird, I love guinea pig smell. Barney used to smell like plastic-y boar stank and I loved it.

i *hate* piggie nail clipping time. i do it at the beginning of the month and it's always horrifying.
the orange bratty one is the worst. she just thrashes around like crazy. i have to have my husband help me with her. she needs a piggie straight jacket.

i used to have a biter but she passed away earlier this year.


ive never noticed a wet piggie smell. i use a raspberry small animal shampoo so they usually smell like that after.

dogs however. UGH.
the first dog shampoo i bought was pina colada "flavored"
man oh man, wet dog + pina colada shampoo is one of the worst things i have ever smelled.
bleeechhhhhh

Pixie the orange/white one is probably 5 which means she is a "senior"
Penny the all orange monster is 4
Pelly the multicolored one with crazy fur is my lil baby, she is just over a year!!! <3

This was hilarious, thank you for sharing! I hope the piggies have forgiven you by now.

They're all so cute! I always wanted one with crazy hair. My mom had a brown and white abyssinian who lived to 9 1/2 years! I'm thinking of adopting a piggie or two in the future, because I miss having one so much, and my dog loves them. I just need to find a really super cute one that can convince my mom that we need another animal in the house...

my first piggie was an abby whom i aptly named Punky. then later my third piggie is the orange monster (Penny) above whom is also an abby. i find the abby's definitely have their own distinct crazy personalities. usually the smooth hair Americans are very docile and sweet and abbyssinians are just crazy.
Penny definitely falls into the completely crazy category. shes the the craziest pig ive ever had. she's also crazy smart. she is nicknamed monster brat for a reason.
Pelly must be a mix of breeds. i think she must be an "abbruvian" (peruvian/abby) cause she doesnt have mop hair but her hair is still pretty long and sticks out. she is sweet but also has a bit of an abby personality!

i want a whole army of peegs!

Eight stinky little butts live with me - lets join forces and dominate the world, one peeg at a time! I imagine that the piggy government's manifesto would include plenty of enforced naps.

eight piggies must equal a lot of poop!!!

the piggie manifesto would also include truckloads of vegs!
