It looks like we'll be getting a brand new baby piggie next week - well she'll be about a month old when we get her. The cute baby piggies I posted last month all turned out to be boys, so we couldn't take one. We were heartbroken. But of course there is a lot of piggie love for everyone.
We'll quarantine the new baby for a couple of weeks (keep her separate from Sugar) and start introducing them slowly in a neutral location (anywhere but Sugar's habitat). I hope they get along. Also during Golden Week we managed to set up a new habitat for Sugar and we've continually been making improvements. We'll also extend the habitat and make it longer when Shoogie's new friend arrives. All materials for the habitat were found at Daiso (100 yen shop) in Tachikawa and it all cost less than 3000 yen. A bargain considering much smaller cages are about 8000 yen.
The skateboard has since been removed and replaced with a flat wooden board as we were a bit worried that it might hurt Sugar's feet. She can easily jump up on the skateboard and at night she does very fast laps around her house. It's quite hilarious. We might have to try and film her one of these days.
UNRELATED COMMENT ABOUT DRESSES
In a completely unrelated note, I have been thinking about creating a Flickr Group where people can share photos of their dresses - vintage, new, formal, etc. I love dresses and would love to see what dresses you have in your closet, why you like/hate them, the history behind the dress, etc. Maybe we could swap dresses or something fun like that. What do you think? If I have time on the weekend I'll set it up and take photos of my dresses.
