Irreconcilable Difference

One of these things is not like the others,

One of these things just doesn’t belong,

Can you tell which thing is not like the others

By the time I finish my song?

Come on! It’s NOT what you think.

This is the story of three little pigs, all rescued by a kind-hearted (and soft-headed) woman and her amazingly patient husband.

The two little white fellows, Pig Newton6-1-16 (1)

and Cedric Piggory 6-1-16 (2)

were happily residing together, a pair of old bachelors, when the woman was notified that there was another little guy who was being neglected and could use a loving (carrot,parsley,cucumber,blueberry,apple-filled) home.

What could she do? Of course, she jumped in the car and drove (200 miles) to the rescue.

Knowing that there might be some roommate issues, the woman was prepared to segregate the kids for a while, just until they grew comfortable with the new guy. It was at that moment – a very-much-too-late moment – she had a thought . . . guinea pigs are notoriously hard to distinguish sex . . . the previous owner was not interested in the pig at all . . . what if they were wrong . . . NO! . . . maybe . . .

We made a panic call to our always-excellent vet, Dr. Kathy Purcell, Boiling Springs Animal Hospital http://www.bsahvets.com/. She examined our newest resident and confirmed my suspicion; the boy who needed to be adopted was a girl! The person who gave her away said she’d take her back, but we all know that was not going to happen; we’d fallen in love in three minutes.

So, the amazingly patient husband of the kind-hearted and soft-headed woman is now buying a separate pig palace for the new kid, as well as giving up more fridge room for piggie treats.

There’s plenty of love and parsley to go around.

Oh, we named her Rebel.

Sing us home, Mr. Bowie.

Doo doo doo doo, Doot doo doo doo

You’ve got your mother in a whirl She’s not sure if you’re a boy or a girl . . .

Perfect name for her; Bowie would have been honored to be the inspiration, and I’m sure you’ll all be happy together.
