Afraid I can't help as i'm guilty too :D

It's those droopy piggy lips, and the way he cocks his head to the side :D

And the jump in the air that says here's mummy i'm so pleased to see her, oh look she's watching me with that besotted look on her face, if I wheek i'll get a treat......

They have me wrapped completely round their little paws :D

I'm afraid I'm guilty as charged too. G&M know that they only have to wheek and they get a treat. They get a treat when they're being cleaned out. Mildred runs around squeaking until she gets it now.

LOL - my lot used to be like that. They had fresh food morning and night!

Now, they only have fresh in the evenings, hay, dry food and maybe a carrot in the mornings.

They had to get used to the new routine, as they were all getting a bit big. It took them about a week to learn that no amount of squeaking in the morning got them extra food.

You just need to persevere with it Jo! :)
