Lupin-Buckmore was one of the most famous piggies that ever belonged to Auntie Doris and Uncle Bob, except possibly for the legendary Blackbird.  He was a pig with attitude, although he was also rumoured to be a bit… well, stupid.  He’d do odd things, and act like he didn’t know what was going on.  He had long legs and Auntie Doris said he was really funny when he walked.

When Mummy wrote him into her books as Prince Lupin of Buckmore, she made him at the kind of person who tries not to look clever but covers up with seeming a bit stupid.  I think that’s Lupin-Buckmore all right.  Just giving those humans the idea he was daft, so they didn’t realise his secret mission.


That’s him in the hat, having a wedding ceremony with two lovely ladies, one of whom is Kira.  He’s a Himalayan breed of guinea pig, with the white coat and dark chocolate points.  Called ‘Himmy’ for short. The brown guy is Baden.  He was Lupin’s sidekick in the stories, too.  Lupin’s very handsome, if you like that sort of thing.

    Lupes was the first Himmy I’d ever met, and he led me to fall in love with the breed. Eventually I’d get my very own Himmy, Atticus. (His points aren’t nearly as defined as Lupes’, but he’s perfect to me)

    Stupid? No. Just marched to the beat of his own drum. Maybe we humans weren’t intelligent enough to follow.
