George

avatar_georgeGeorge.  Where would we be without him?

We wouldn’t have this blog, or a facebook page, or the upstairs run, or strawberry juice power plants, probably not even the Princelings of the East, although that really is both him and Fred.

George Forum MechanicYesterday I told you that Fred was the natural philosopher, the thinker.  Well, George was The Engineer.  He was even the Forum Mechanic on the Rodents with Attitude forum.  He took his duties very seriously, and when people asked for his advice he generally started his answers “well, I’m only a guinea pig, but…”  He was very polite and very wise.  So was Fred, but Fred didn’t really get into blogging and forums.  Not like George.  And George’s engineering genius is one of the key things (Mummy says use the word ‘cornerstones’ but I don’t know what that means) of the Princelings of the East series.

You think I’m exaggerating?  Well, look at the page on redesigns for grassy hutches.  He did that.  Have you seen the enormous run he designed, with ramps and different levels and room for lots of pigs?  He did that.  Vic and Dougall and I lived in for a bit, until Kevin and Colman needed it.  But he designed it and he and Fred enjoyed it for a whole six months before George died.

He had a lot of illness, George did.  Mainly abscesses on his neck and under his teeth.  He had very bad teeth.  That’s why Mummy went on dental course to learn how to help him.  He was so good – there are loads of pictures of him when he’s recovering from operations, still looking happy and enjoying life.  He used to just lie back and let himself be wrapped up, too.  I hate lying on my back.

Everyone says George was the best pig anyone could ever know, and you know something – I’m not even jealous.  Maybe he was.  I wish I’d met him.

My book’s out

Mummy’s been writing it for me, but it’s all my own words.  Apart from the bits someone else put in when something was happening elsewhere in our world.

It’s called Bravo Victor and it tells of how I go off to the Rhinelands with Sundance and Amelia to help Sundance solve his case (he’s a secret agent) and to look for George, who’s gone missing.  It’s very exciting.  I bump into someone else you know very well, and I can’t work out which side of the time tunnel he is and whether I know him or not.    Can you guess who??

Will Mummy ever finish my story?

You may know that Mummy writes proper stories about us that are made into books. There’s the Trilogy of the Princelings of the East, both on ebook and in paperback, and then Hugo’s story The Traveler in Black and White which is an eBook.  I’m in all of them of course, as Victor the barkeeper in the first one (I have a special chapter of my own when I rescue my dad) and in the second I also have a special chapter of my own (when I fight the pirates at Castle Wash).  In the third I don’t have a chapter but I turn up every now and then because I’m helping George with his strawberry juice product launch. Then in Hugo’s I’m at the inn as a very young person and I’m cuter than ever.

When she’d finished those,  Mummy started writing my story, called Victor’s Story, which she still hasn’t finished.  You can see how far she got with it if you look at the heading ‘Books’. Continue reading “Will Mummy ever finish my story?”

Too busy to blog

That’s Mummy.  She’s been too busy to let me blog so it’s not my fault I haven’t kept you up to date.  Although I have been using our Facebook page which is very easy to use.  Mummy has been writing stories again.  And sending them out into the world for everyone to read.  So I haven’t been able to get on the computer much.  I’d better give you an update on what’s been happening here.
