I haven't had a young guinea pig for a few years now and I wasn't with my boyfriend then .. so he just witnessed Lentil having a good ol' popcorning attack :))

He loves it when I make a cave with the duvet covers and goes popcorning crazy and my boyfriend thought it was hilarious. He couldn't believe how much it looks as if their having a seizure :p But yeah he found it rather amusing xx>>>

Hes had guinea pig all his life - well his parents have but hes never spent so much time with them as they weren't his responsibility.

I think Lentil was having fun too x)

Awww tell him I know exactly what he means :)

Our two boars are our first piggies and I knew absolutely nothing about them 5 months ago. When Biscuit first popcorned I rushed around looking for a vet because I thought he was having a fit! Now it's one of my favourite sights because I know how happy the boys are :)

Has he seen Lentil really zooming at break-neck speeds yet?

Swooooshy hair - fantastic!

Our Caramel has slightly longer hair and is a real zoomer too. I bet your BF was a little shocked at the zooming too. I remember when Caramel first zoomed at top speed - he kept banging in to things and I thought he was going to hurt himself!

What made you think of the name Lentil btw - it's really cool and v. different :)

Yeah he was a bit shocked as he didnt think they did that. As my other two will be in our room next week i think he'll be learning much more bout them -c

Well I like to give my animals good names - even thought my abby boars are Jake and hector :x lol

and my bf's mum came up with Lentil as he is nearly all orange like Lentil :)

**** is I keep calling him Fennel sometimes as it sounds similar and he only died 3 weeks ago.

glad you like it :)

Its what young piggys tend to do though you do get the older pig who likes to have a jump around.

Its just basically expressing happiness by running around as fast as you can and jumping all over the place. 'jumping for joy'

My 7 month old is constantly doing it and now that Ive got a 10 week old in with him its going to be mental! :p
