When we got Patches from a local breeder, I saw and fell in love with another type of coated pig, a silver agouti. I really wanted one of those too, so I kept in touch with the breeder, and one became available in early March. Pebbles came to us on March 2, with a birth date of January 29 and her very own pedigree.

As happened last time, the newly second youngest pig had to really work hard to establish her dominance, or at least she thought so. This time, that pig was Patches, who chased the new baby all over the cage the first day. But Pebbles took it all in stride and actually seemed to enjoy all the running around. Even when no one was chasing her, she would race all over the cage. She probably couldn't believe how much space she had to run around in!

Just like last time, the oldest pig, Pippi, was wonderful to the new baby, sharing her food and "defending" her at times. Pepper, who had been quite the chaser of Patches a couple months ago, was much more accepting of this new baby, having been through this "trauma" once before. However, Pepper gets pretty aggressive when food is involved. Nonetheless, with food in great abundance and with much patience, Pebbles manages to eat plenty. She especially seems to enjoy apples and carrots.

April 22, 2009 - Pebbles, a.k.a. "The Gray One," passed away suddenly and peacefully at the age of 4-1/4 years. We just found her and she was already gone. We hadn't noticed any signs of illness. She was always very healthy. We will miss her shy personality and her gorgeous fur. Rest in peace, Pebbles!
