Today Biggles’ integer age went from zero to one. That’s right, the world has been 100% more Biggly for a whole year.
Previously we’d been for a trip to Wizard of Paws to do some birthday shopping. It’s one of the few pet shops near us that actually allows pets inside to browse, and straight away we’d found something that made both their eyes light up:
Yep those are genuine pig snouts. If you find that picture pretty revolting, you’re gonna love the reverse view:
Needless to say on Birthday morning Biggles quickly located the package that contained his pig snout and tore it open..
There’s no shortage of interesting packages, and even an edible rawhide card…
…but after the briefest of sniffs his nose knows where the pig’s nose is
There was as you can imagine a bit of a delay before he got round to checking out his other prezzies, and predictably the most expensive one – a big blue “boomer ball” – received the least attention.

Finally, a short video of some of the other ‘firsts’ in Biggly boy’s life:
