I had a dog called Chippie many years ago - Chip or Chippie are good names.

Thanks for adopting him and looking after him. He is very similar to Humpty!

I like chippie. So cute. Yes they're like father and son. Lol. I was actually shocked at how similar they look. Maybe that's why humpty accepted him.❤
🤔🤷

A couple of pics of the boys. I actually got a really good one that I'm going to enter in ayrs guinea pig rescue calendar competition. But that pics under wraps for now. Lol 😂 so here are a couple of others. And I couldn't resist the pic of 2 wee piggie bums. Love how chips colours split perfectly in half. ❤😊IMG_20190616_123526_550.jpgDSC_0033_1.JPG

What a shame for the poor wee guy!
He’s very lucky to have found himself with you

Oh he's so cute! What a lucky boy... unfortunately some people only have animals for the profit they can make of them and they coyldn't care less. These people don't deserve any simpaty.

Update on Chip and Humpty. Well Chip really settled in with Humpty but sadly he came with a fungal infection (which we've now cleared thank goodness! ).

That was a long long frustrating road. A wrong diagnosis at a vets who made things a whole lot worse 🙄. I knew it was fungal but they were adamant firstly it was mites, then when that didn't work they said oh it's dermatitis and prescribed a steroid cream! 😯 A second opinion at different vets (who at least said it was fungal, but then said he'd heal on his own🙈) Lots of f10 disinfectant, antifungal dips in f10 shampoo, binned carrot cottages and wooden toys. But we got out the other side eventually. I was so scared with how bad he got. (I won't post pics as its so graphic)

He looks fab now. Just a shame he brought the nasty fungal with him. They look lovely together.

Aw it sounds like you've had a really tough time of it, a fungal outbreak is such a nightmare, glad you've got through it though and the boys look very happy now!

Yes I know it was such a shame for him. Back yard breeders are terrible.

He is clearly thriving. Well done for getting him so healthy after a rough start.
Thanks. He never stops eating. They go through so so much hay. But it's good for them so I don't mind.

I am so pleased how well things have gone for these two chaps - glad the fungal infection has cleared - obviously with your love and care they will continue to thrive.

Well a little update on the boys. We had some tense moments yesterday and the boys had a bit of a scrap. But it all seems to have calmed down. I couldn't figure out what had happened but this morning Chip rumbled at Humpty and Humpty reprimanded Chip and chattered at him. So I'm thinking yesterday was Chips first ever Rumble :nod: and Humpty didn't like it. My baby is now a teenager.
