Flog It Blog It Amour Drama!



We dedicate this to My Pawsitively PetsDaisy & Cress and Cocoa & Melon.

Is your pet guinea pig tired of wandering around the house unarmored and vulnerable? Do they get picked on by other guinea pigs? Has your guinea pig ever wanted to go with you to a Renaissance Faire but had nothing to wear? Fear not! A solution is here! That's what eBay user mightys0x wrote in the description of his charity auction for a handmade guinea pig scale suit of armour and helmet. As of  last week, the rodent-sized suit of armour received 156 bids, bringing its auction price to whopping $24,300. The product description said 100 percent of the profits go towards Metropolitan Guinea Pig Recue, a non-profit organization in Virginia dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding new homes for unwanted guinea pigs. What better way to do that than by suiting your pet up in metal and taking on the world? I immediately had visions of a guinea pig jousting contests with carrot batons as lances. They can eat them afterwards.
  


I of course have my own set of armour namely Lancelittle!


The Cat From Hell made us these great pix for our poll over on the right, just one click and vote....am I a devil or an angel or maybe a bit of both?

Today in honour of Summer Ranger & Frankie are hosting Sun Glasses Day so put on your specs and let's celebrate the start of Summer.


And Mollie & Alfie have a book project which you can be part of. Just pop over and leave a comment and your email they will get in touch with you.


Lastly we are thrilled to get this award from the handsome Hawk. Thank you and we will pop it on our awards page with pride.

Have a tremendous Thursday all.

    Well earned Molly! Well earned! You have put my Human to shame! She forgot that today was scheduled for the Award post and totally failed to let the honored recipients know before the post went live! Sometimes she has NO memory!

    1. PS - I noticed late tonight that you were not in my feed reader! It must have happened because the Feedly thing changed a little and I think I lost some somehow.

  21. Molly do you need an escort to help you fightoff all the pupperazzi? You are definitely camera-ready in your shades...and only you would have your own suit of armour...One question...do you really have a little rat for a furriend or is that photowhizzed? I'm learning to get along with the ducks in the yard but not sure what I'd do with a rat brofur

  24. Oh Molly, we just had to go back and thank you for this dedication because we had seen you had dedicated it to us but Melon was in one of her moods and said we'd have to come back later (sigh) but we're happy to be remembered as your piggie friend! I sure would love that armour, maybe I'd get a few less pats that way, I'm not really a fan of touching!
