We are very sad about Roland, who went over the Rainbow Bridge yesterday.  He lived in New York with Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne, and had many, many pigtures on Facebook, for his #WolandWednesday theme. An awful lot of them had him taking food from his daddy’s lips while standing on his daddy’s chest.  Awful is a carefully chosen word there.  I wouldn’t do it, not even from Mummy.  But it shows what a polite and trusting pig Roland was.

Sending love to Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne.


Roland arrived on the scene in January, after Willoughby went over the Rainbow Bridge very suddenly. He lives with Auntie Dawn and Uncle Wayne, presumably in Mariusz’s old cage.  I wonder if M left him any messages.

We know he’s not very old, but not exactly how old – a matter of months, anyway.  He was very small and skinny when he arrived, but now he weighs 940 gms which is about the same or even more than Hector!  He needs to develop a bit, that’s all.

He’s gradually settling in to the crazy world of Castle Hattan, and who knows whether he might appear in a book one day?  He appears on Facebook every Wednesday on Auntie Dawn’s pages.  The hashtag is ⌗wolandwednesday

What’s a hashtag, Auntie?

Uncle Willoughby

We’re all really upset and sending love to Auntie Dawn, Uncle Wayne, Atticus, Peepers and Tweek, because of the sudden passing of our friend Willoughby.

Mummy is extra upset because she was working on his story all morning.

We’ll all really miss him.  We’ll be in mourning for him for the next seven weeks.
