Fluffy Does 7 Vignettes

Oh haiii everyone! Fluffy here... just thought I'd pop onto my blog (I'm on my tablet in the hutch - I have WiFi out here...) and let you know what I've been up to lately...

Most recently I was thrilled to partake in the February Interiors Addict 7 Vignettes Instagram event. Over seven days I captured the nation's heart (indeed the world's) with my cute, fuzzy, furry, themed poses to camera. Here they are (with the themes mentioned below each photo) for all those not on Instagram... (Happy to note this first one of me in the comfy cardi was Gold Dust Days' most popular Insta photo EVERRRR ...it's all about me people... ALL ABOUT ME!)  

 

Comfy. - In my favourite cardi... with convenient food pockets.

Bright. Luckily I have some stylin' sunnies to block the glare. (Also helps when being papped by the press at major events... happens a LOT.)

Neutral. I feel a little plain in this vignette I must admit, I prefer a little razzle dazzle sparkle in my life.

Cosy. After a huge week in front of the cameras I was a little exhausted to say the least - can't believe I was photographed in bed!! WHAT WILL THE LADIES AT THE CAVY SOCIETY SAY!? (they'll be well jell I'd expect.)

Scruffy. In Memorium.

Oh I feel a bit awful about posting this. Our dear Scruffy... Our two-toned, fedora wearing, short haired guinea pig passed away just a few weeks ago. Scruffy had such a fabulous life. She enjoyed under-the-chin rubs more than most cats do... Scruffy would really lean into you as you gave her a rub under her chin. She loved a cuddle.
She was a sweetheart.

Scruffy was funny, and vocal, and friendly, and enjoyed bouncing around popcorning all over the place. She loved parsley and carrots and dandelion leaves. Scruffy has been a much loved (and cuddled) member of our family for two years. She will be dearly missed.

Dear Scruffy may you rest in peace, in the comfiest, warmest, snuggliest guinea pig bed in the sky. (And may there also be some great new hats for you to try on in guinea pig heaven.)

With much love, and eternal affection from your human family. x x x

The Glory of Victory.

Apologies to my legion of fans, this is a delayed post, as I'm still coming down from my moment in the sun. Y'know... media engagements, product endorsements, sponsorship deals... blah blah blah...
Back in November I popped along to the Daylesford and District Agricultural Society's Annual Show. (Or the Daylesford Show as we know it). I have always fancied myself as well... fancy, and rated myself as a chance among the other cavies for a neat little certificate, or perhaps even a ribbon.

In preparation for the show I took a long and indulgent bubble bath...

Excuse me... Do you mind? I'm bathing...

Excuse me... Do you mind? I'm bathing...

I patiently sat on the washing machine (oh the shame) as I was dutifully dried...

they used an old beach towel... I mean, I'm dying right now.

... and only complained a little bit as I was coiffed and groomed and made (even more) fabulous for my big day.

The My Little Pony brush is gentle on my long locks.

Ready to work it.

The judging was brutal... I mean, look what they did with my hair?!

When I'm crowned Miss Universe I'm hoping for World peace...

The judge and I had a fabulous rapport. We discussed politics, grain prices, the weather, and which guests we'd invite to a dinner party if we could invite anyone... (Kevin McCloud for me... *giggle* - Oh If only he'd design me a hutch... something sustainable and glamourous.)

I'd like to thank the Academy, the judges, my Mum, and Kevin McCloud... oh Kevin.

After a claw-biting few minutes, the judges made their decision, and I was crowned Best Sow at the 2014 Daylesford Show. I was of course overwhelmed with the applause and cheers from the crowd, fans and supporters cheering my name, (Fluffy! Fluffy!) and was handed bunches of parsley and dandelions and broccoli leaves as I struggled to keep the weighty crown atop my head. Oh the tears of joy I cried! Just re-living it brings tears to my eyes... sniff!

I would like to personally thank the judges. I promise to make my year as Best Sow a positive one for cavies everywhere. I will continue my charity work and pursue the betterment of life for Guinea pigs across the land.

Kisses to you all darlings!

Strawberry

Oh hi there!

I'm Strawberry.

GIMME CARROT!!!!

GIMME CARROT!!!!

I am Fluffy's first born.

Here I am with my Mama Fluffy when I was 1 day old. I'm so cuuuute!

Suddenly I was a REAL LIFE ZHU ZHU PET!

Spot the difference...

Spot the difference...

When I was a wee young piggy there was an incident where I was accidentally dropped from a (not very high) height.
This resulted in a broken leg, a splint and a bucket on my head.

Gah! The cone of shame.

Gah! The cone of shame.

I'm fine now... But I'll probably never win the New York Marathon.

I might win Australia's Next Top Model though...

Please... I'm fabulous.

Please... I'm fabulous.

I look forward to sharing my many hair-dos with you... but not so much my carrots...
I don't share my carrots.

Fluffy

Helllooooo! I'm Fluffy.

Mostly I'm fabulous.

Mostly I'm fabulous.

I'm a long haired guinea pig. Some say I'm high maintenance, but mostly I'm fabulous.

I'm fond of pats, frolicking in long grass and wearing tiaras.

I have quite the collection.

Sometimes I'm a little shy...

Here I am being coy... Less cameras more cabbage thanks humans.

But mostly I dream of a day when I can scuba the Great Barrier Reef.

What were you expecting? a wetsuit?

I'm looking forward to sharing my guinea gorgeousness with you darlings.

Mwah!

Scruffy

Hello my name is Scruffy.

This is a baby photo of me. Naww...

This is a baby photo of me. Naww...

I am almost two years old now.

They call me Scruffy but I am the least scruffy of my friends. Which is weird. But I’m not weird. I’m awesome.

Look at my awesomeness.

Look at my awesomeness.

I like carrots and dandelions.

I quite enjoy an under-the-chin rub.

When I grow up I would like to be a motorcycle cop on highway patrol.

Or just a bigger guinea pig.

I like to yell for food. You should see the humans run to me with fresh-picked parsley and handfuls of long grass when I raise my voice. Ahhh it's hilarious.

I'm also quite fond of dress ups.

I must say I'm rather partial to a hat.
