Piglette lips

I don’t know about you, but I’ve never really had the opportunity to study a Guinea peeg’s lil’ face before. I mean, look at lil’ "Lippy" here. what a prosh little nose, and teeniest muzzlepuff evar. She’s like, 60 percent schnozzle.


Tiny, twitching thanks to Tanya H.

  22. Peg of Tilling says:

    Doesn’t “muzzlepuff” sound kinda congratulatory? “I have a new kitten!” “MUZZLEPUFF!” Could just be me, though.

  23. Peg — yep. I suppose I could point out the similarity to “mazel tov” in the Glossary.
    [makes mental note]

  24. arrr me hearties, tis a cute limp bottom lip! better still is a little gp tongue, too cute!!

  25. Muzzlepuff sounds like something from Harry Potter to me! What cute witto wips tho.

  26. Peg of Tilling says:

    Maybe “muzzlepuff” has a world of untapped utility…Knock knock. Who’s there? Muzzlepuff. Muzzlepuff who? Muzzlepuff if he eats too fast!…that would only work if you knew someone named Muzz, though.

  27. LOL, Peg!!

  28. brownamazon says:

    Hmm, I think Peg is mos’ def’ onto something… like a toast at one of those staged hamster wedding? And the boy hamster has to break…um, lessee, a sunflower seed with his little paw? Shiver me timbers, that’s clever!

  29. That cuties is sayin ”keeeeees meeeeee *slurpy kiisin sound*”!

  30. Arrrr, those lips, it remind me of a time once in the south of France, it do…

    Muzzlepuffs be what we use to stuff gunpowder down the gunnery – and if ye don’ want to wind up as cannon fodder – TO YOUR POSTS!

  31. What’s wrong with its left ear?

  32. I’ve been lurking around for a while, and suddenly feel compelled to comment. It happens that these past few days my mom and I have been reminiscing about the piggies we had when I was a kid. Guinea pigs are great, and if you feed them by hand, sometimes you get wonderful little nibble-kisses from their funny soft wittle wips. 🙂 Piggies rule!

  33. Kiss me quick, you big furry pig, you. What a cutie!!!

  34. you guys r silly says:

    Is it just
    does anybody ELSE do this:
    Move your mouse to put the curser over the picture: It becomes the little hand with the pointing finger.
    Now – m-o-v-e the pointing finger so that it’s going up the piggeh’s nosicle and picking it…
    put it in front of his little mouth and make him look like he’s saying
    wiggle it in his little earsy to get some of that piggeh wax out…
    Is it just ME???

  35. He is the cutest lil’ piggy that I have ever seen. I would love to give him big smooches.

  36. kiss kiss love that lower lip

  37. No, you guys r silly, I must admit to this behavior also. But I also skritch their little heads with the little hand, so they forgive me.

  38. Yet another example of the good ol’ cavy ‘What?’ face. ^_^

  39. oh, I lof her little kissy mouf. Or maybe she’s whistling a piggy tune.

  40. Lil’ piggeh looks like he’s whistling a happy tune!! Holy pucker!!

  41. looks like he’s saying “dude”

  42. House of Mayhem says:

    Looks like Charles Laughton/Captain Bligh (and in honor of Talk Like a Pirate day:)

    “Mistah Christian!to the Brig wi’ye!”

  43. Awwwwww such lovely cuddly jowls!!!

    And Pirate Day at work was a howlin’ success. Except when I answered the phone Arrrrrr, Microbiology, I just got a lot of confused nurses.

    However, the silverfish we found on the floor was christened Long John Silverfish, and grog and booty was enjoyed by all.

    There was also quite a bit of offcolor joking such as “Swab my deck and I’ll polish your mainmast.”

    All in a day’s work, yaarrrrrrr.

  44. I am not sure that this can technically be called a “face”. Eyes, ears, nose, lips. All with no face.

  45. Schweet, funny – and a shade too reminiscent of the “disembodied head” pic:


    [runs away…]

  46. Oooohhhhh! It’s so cute!!! ^^

    It looks a lot like Nicolas Cage to me, because of the long face and the bottom lip 🙂

  47. C’mon, darlin’. Give us a kiss. You know you want to.

  48. Another piggy haiku:

    Soft, smooshable lips.
    Guinea pig kissies, oh joy!
    Whiskery smooches!

  49. Ok, two more things:

    1) “you guys” – now I totally want to pick the piggy’s nose.

    2) Lauri – you had Pirate Day at work?!?!?! I haven’t been around in a while – did I miss a mention of this earlier. And, by the way, you are my hero.

    “Did you hear about the new pirate movie? It’s rated ‘Arrrr’!”

  50. (That should be: Did I miss a mention of this earlier?!?!?!)

  51. Lol!
    Well, it wasn’t an “official” Pirate Day at work. It IS, however, National Talk Like a Pirate day today.

    And, since we laboratorians like to take stuff and run wild with it, we took this opportunity to holler Arrrs and Avasts over the intercom and just generally get on everyone else’s nerves. Good fun! 🙂

  52. *chortle* EC, it IS a wonderful disemodied head in your link!
    And this piggolette, well, with the lighting it looks like it could be a floating head!

  53. Avast! Yon pig be adorrrrrrable!

  54. I just want to kiss him!!

  55. Looks like a fuzzy goldfish!

  56. i love this picture!! it made me make an audible squeal just lookin at it.

  57. Car, you’re the best!

  58. Oh, no! How could I have missed Talk Like a Pirate Day for the last ten years? This is tragic.

    Acutally, though, my boyfriend and I talk like pirates a lot, so maybe every day is my own personal Talk Like a Pirate Day.

    Arrrr, I’ll take a noggin’ o’ rum and a good long sleep, maties!

  59. Aye, and it’was a bloody good day fer pirates!

    *Nawm nawm on a crusty bread and slurpin’ a mug o’ rum”

    Pirate honkshus…….

  60. This scurvy piglet be arrrrfully cute!

  61. Wait WAIT. I know what McPiglette’s up to. She’s whistling the backing track to “Don’t Worry, Be Cavy.”

    Here’s a little song I wrote
    Yyou might want to sing it note for note
    …or not.
    Be Cavy.

  62. What’s he whistling?

  63. piggers turns to silent Alfred Hitchock profile and quietly says, “Gooood Eveeeeeninggggg”. (dah dump, dah dump music in the background)

  64. He’s saying “Looook into my nostrils! You are getting sleppy!”

  65. AHhhahahaha, Rita, I just saw your post! Perfecto!

  66. seduced by a Guinea pig. how sad.

  67. Yes, Rita!
    I was just going to point out the uncanny resemblance to Alfred Hitchcock but you beat me to it! Bravo!
    “Dial M for Muzzlepuff?

  68. Ho my god, TEH lip…*eeeeee!*
    Anyway, may I dare say that this little dude looks like Carl Weezer from “Jimmy Neutron” :-D, “Lamma loooozaaaaa!” .

  69. jealous of crazy people says:

    ooooooooh how i LUUUUUUUUUUUUURV piggy lips! they r sooooo velvety soft! i always kiss my piggy on the lips! how can you not!?

  70. jealous of crazy people says:
