Bernie Butts Update

My little guinea pig Bernie has really come out of his shell since we first got him. He’s gone through a lot with us already, we’ve moved into our first home and although Bernie HATED the car ride he loves his new home and has settled in really fast.

 

He loves to ‘popcorn’ jump allover the new rug and likes to play tag around the new flat.

He’s grown a lot and his hair is out of control! I give him weekly trims to keep it manageable otherwise it gets too long and with summer approaching I don’t want him to over heat.

His favourite things to eat are Spinach and Parsley. But he’ll eat anything green, especially if its leafy. As a treat once I week I give him fruit, his favourite so far is strawberries.

 

As you can tell by the title of the post his nickname is Bernie ‘Butts’ because he does a cute butt wiggle when he runs.

 

If there’s anything else you would like to know about little Bernie or questions or stories about owning a guinea pig in general please get in touch, I could talk about him all day!

Newark

This weekend I’ve been away to Newark to visit my dad and step mam, I traveled down by train from Newcastle with my aunt and uncle. Luckily the weather has been great and I’ve been out for plenty of walks with the dog! 
One place we walk through is the grave yard that is a 10 minute walk from my dad’s home, it’s a lovely well kept place and you’ll see the odd squirrel darting up the trees! 

My dad recently got a tortoise, it’s so small and cute! They’ve called her Harlo, you can’t tell what sex they are until they are around 3 but they are calling it a her for now. Here’s little Harlo: 
As you can see she is very small compared to my hand and I have small hands as it is! She’s about an inch and half big and will crawl onto your hand if she sees you! 
Let me know what you thought of this post and if I should carry on with more of my day to day life instead of just my photography! Thank you!
