Oh noes!

Something tragic happened in my home today! Guess what it was? Look!

What used to be a beautiful forest for munching...

 Now looks like this!


Ya-huh! All gone! Now what am I going to eat?
But look! What's this?

Is that spot for me? Aww! And phew!

Wheek! Cocoa out!

Good results

Wheek! Got the results of my blood test this morning: I passed! They didn't find any wrong answers! So my hoomans are just going to keep an eye on me and my weight to see if we will need to do any more for me, like that tooth operation.

Hooman is cautiously optimistic at the moment though because I have gained a little more weight back. We'll just wait and see - meanwhile, is that more parsley for me?

Wheek! Cocoa out!

Starting to feel my age?

So you guys know that I'm pretty old for a guinea pig... and most of the time I seem to be still going strong. But recently I've been losing weight, and a couple weeks ago I got rushed to the hospital for what my hoomans thought were seizures, although they now think it was actually due to me being very itchy, overbalancing when scratching and then having to jerk violently to get back on my feet again. Now, I haven't been doing those itchy-scratchy-flipping things much anymore, and I've never seen so much food in my life, but I'm still losing a fair amount of weight.
So I went to the v-e-t to get blood taken today. Now, they told my hoomans that I was sedated to steal my blood, but I'm not sure about that 'cause I sure felt bouncy when they came to pick me up!

Results soon. If they don't find anything, I might have to have an operation to grind my teeth down! Okay, so I've had that before... but my hoomans want to avoid that if possible. They say that it might be tough for a senior guy like me.

So if you have some to spare, Melon says we would really appreciate some POTP here.

Cocoa & Melon

Happy birthday, Cocoa!

Wheeek! Hello! My name is Cocoa. My hooman Melon has been hanging around DWB for a while but mostly lurking. Not sure how long she'll hang around for, but she wanted to introduce me - so here I am!

Guess what? I just turned 7! That's right! (Told you I was old.) Take a look:

The pawty was great - a lovely big bowl of carrot, celery and of course parsley (my favourite!) 'cake' for me, and vegetable sticks with dip for the hoomans... oh and if you look carefully at the picture of the 'guests' you can see the cookies made 'specially for MY pawty!

Okay, catcha later!
