I'm sure of it..
Just came in from the garden and he was carefully giving each piggy a bit of Broccoli. Making sure they had the same size each. Hahaha
I think hes secretly looking forward to Boofle giving birth.:(|)

I wouldn't be surprised - my hubby is like that, as long as he thinks I'm not noticing!

My OH will always deny loving the piggies but he does really. I quite often hear him speaking to them before he goes to bed and he always says good morning to them. He's a big softy really!

aww , when we got our boys originally my other half wasn't that keen, but then he started feeding them at night and they started wheeking at him all the time and he fell quite in love I think, he was really upset when ours drowned and was quite offended that some people didn't seem to understand how upsetting them dying was

Lol Men are a funny bunch eh! They don't want to harm their macho image but deep down, when it comes to the piggies they are big softies. Hehe.

Hmm...I dont know...mine asked for a tea pot for Christmas, and was so happy and excited when my parents got him one! rolleyes As for him and the piggies...well...he does love them deep down and will have a little natter to them (especially Archie as he's his little boy :) )

I thought it was just my hubby that was like that, but guinea pigs obviously bring out our blokes' best sides!

When i first got piggies he was like 'your rug rats need feeding'. But when one of them died he had tears rolling down his face as he lifted the piggy out. He now takes great pleasure in preparing veg bowls for them (making sure all 3 are identical) and he always makes a fuss of them. He reckons I'm crazy for talking to them, but he doesn't realise he's just as bad! He can't go into P@H without checking the adoption centre and I'm sure its only a matter of time before our gang expands.

It proves that gp's are sweet, funny and endearing little animals with characters that can appeal to anyone.

N'awww! That's so sweet! :<>

My other half talks to my piggies, too! Sometimes I hear him asking them, "Awww...How do you make those noises?"

So sweet! XD
