Farewell To Speckles And Layla

I realize it has been a while since I posted but I have been in mourning. Two weeks ago, on Monday, Speckles and Layla passed away. I am not sure what killed them. It just seems to be some kind of freak something. At first, I suspected fire ants but I am not sure.
They were especially rambunctious that morning. They kept trying to run under the fence. One time, Terry had to help me gather them up in the front yard and take them back to the back yard. Now that I think about it, maybe they were trying to go there to die. I have heard of animals going somewhere else to die. I don’t know.
I had to take Terry to work, that day, because Steph had the car. She came back to the house because she was having trouble getting her driver’s license and was off again to try a second time. I sat out there with the piggies, Nibbles, too, after we got the playpen set up for the girls. Nibbles doesn’t need one because he doesn’t run away-he just sits next to their playpen. That day, however, he wasn’t sitting next to them. He was on the porch part of the day and on the other end of the back yard the other part. I thought it was odd but nothing else of it.
The girls kept knocking their water bottle off of their carrier, to the point where I got frustrated. I don’t know what was up with that.
I took Terry to work and came back home to take a nap. I was hormonally challenged, that day and felt really bad. I peeked outside and thought I saw them running around in the playpen.
I spent a little time unpacking the bedroom until I was too tired to do anymore. I had to lie down for a few minutes again and then I got up to check on them. That is when I found them. They were already starting to decompose-thinking back, that was good, so I wouldn’t take them to the Vet, thinking they could save them, and then find out they are dead. I was spared from all of that.
The whole thing was just so weird!
I still miss them a lot but sometimes I feel that it happened at the right time-whatever that meansi have not taken Nibbles back out to the back yard. I am waiting until it cools down some more.
I was going to have Speckles do another post before they died but I just haven’t had the heart since they died before I finished it. She was going to talk some more about our new pet-how he’s annoying and just thinks that the piggies are a chew toy. Anyway, here is a picture of him. His name is Xenon and he is an Italian Greyhound-a miniature Greyhound, who can be a lap dog or very hyper. Right now, he’s 3 months old and chewing on everything!

O Is For Outside For Grass!!!

My friend, who now owns Meatball, told me that I could take the piggies outside for grass, that they love grass. I tried it and boy, she was right! They loved it. Whenever it is warm enough, or not too hot, I take them outside for grass. I bought a pet playpen to use outside, to keep them from running off. They munch away, totally contented.
Yesterday, it was nice outside, so I took them out. I have to take them out separately or I will have more guinea pigs in a couple of months. I took the boys out first and they enjoyed the sun. It was really windy, so they avoided the wind, hiding in the carrier that I brought them out in.
When I took the girls out, they seemed to do the same; until Anna came home from school. She removed their hiding place and rearranged the playpen, to see what the girls would do. We even brought Speckles out to see if she could get along with Taylor but Taylor picked on her. Anna rearranged the playpen so Taylor could not get to Speckles.

Here is some pictures from yesterday:
