Wanted – holiday homes for Winnie and Bubbles!

A plea from our boarders: would any of our families like to step forward to offer a holiday home for their two guinea pigs over the half term break at the end of May or in the summer holidays? Winnie and Bubbles, our ‘piggies’,  are easy to look after, fun and quite cuddlesome! If you can help, please email boarding@hohs.co.uk as soon as possible.

Happy HOHS Anniversary, Winnie and Bubbles!

It’s exactly a year since the boarders welcomed two 8-week-old baby guinea pigs, both females, and named the pair Winnie and Bubbles. Since then, the ‘piggies’ have become part of our boarding family and are much loved by all – they have grown quite a bit, too!

Wanted – half term holiday home for Winnie and Bubbles!

A plea from our boarders: would one of our families like to step forward to offer a half-term holiday home for their two guinea pigs over the half term break? They are easy to look after, fun and (as you can see!) quite cuddlesome! If you can help, please email boarding@hohs.co.uk as soon as possible.

Winnie and Bubbles are back!

Bubbles and Winnie are safely back at school. We are very grateful to Kitty Carr-Lake for looking after them all summer. They are very plump and shiny and now the boarding house family is complete again as we can hear the squeaking!

Winnie and Bubbles settle in

 

The boarders are very excited as their two 8-week-old baby guinea pigs, both females,  arrived on Thursday. Mr Crump took some of the girls to the pet shop to choose the guinea pigs and stock up on the supplies needed to look after them, and they were then duly installed in an indoor hutch for the time being. Once Spring comes and the weather warms up they will be living in the courtyard, in the smart hutch generously donated by Mr Lake and Miss Carr. The boarders have named the pair Winnie and Bubbles and we will check in on them from time to time for the blog as they grow!
