Hi guys, we have some very exciting news to share with you; this morning we are officially launching a brand new HayPigs!® product! To find out more, please read our press release:
HayPigs!®, home of the award-winning HayPigs!® Guinea Pig Circus™ and designers of toys, feeders and accessories for guinea pigs and other small animals, are delighted to announce the launch of their brand new healthy dog treat, Guinea Poop™.
Having received rave reviews for their range of small animal products, this quirky and exciting family run business has decided to branch out into the dog market. MD Rik explains:
"With innovation at the core of our business, we believe we have spotted a real commercial opportunity that has been completely overlooked by the rest of the trade. We believe our new vitimin B rich doggy treats will be a massive hit!"
The secret behind Guinea Poop™ is the production technique which involves a secret recipe developed by their resident small furries. Co-founder Helen explains:
"Having spent a lot of time with our guinea pigs and indeed our border collie, Sansa, we noticed she had a real interest in the piggies backsides. On closer inspection, it wasn't the pigs themselves that she was after, but the poops they produced."
While this may sound a little disgusting for some, research conducted by HayPigs!® revealed that this was happening up and down the country:
"My dog is obsessed with piggy poop. He thinks the guinea pigs are sweet machines." ruledbyguineapigs (theguineapigforum.co.uk)
HayPigs!® new dog treat recycles and reuses fresh guinea pig poops and packages them in a resealable, foil lined pouch. 100% organic and packed with vegetable nutrients, each poop is carefully inspected for size and weight before being added to the pack.
While the initial production run began in the UK, demand has meant that HayPigs!® have now approached LA Guinea Pig Rescue for help. They were recently involved in the dramatic rescue of a hoard of over 700 guinea pigs, a record for the US. It is hoped that a joint Anglo American venture will allow harvesting of an abundance of poops from their Californian base.
Guinea Poop™ retails at £3.99 for a 60g pouch. The product is available from April 1st. For more details, email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have enjoyed reading our press release and can spare some change to help out the incredible team of volunteers at LA Guinea Pig Rescue we would be very grateful. With all the medical attention, feeding and neutering required, their average weekly bill is currently running at around $1300. We have set up a Just Giving page (below). Any donation, no matter how small, would be greatly received. Have a great Easter wheek-end everybody!
Wheek to you soon!
Helen, Rik, Scarlett Rose and the HayPigs!®
EDIT: APRIL FOOLS! We're sorry guys, as many of you will have guessed, we were fibbing! 🤥😋😘 But we are delighted so many of you embraced our concept, maybe it's not such a daft idea after all...?! 🤔😄😅🤡
Just a little disclaimer; if your dog does eat a few guinea pig poos it shouldn't do them any harm, but it's recommended that you don't let them make a habit of it. Eating copious amounts of piggy poo can make your dog ill if there are any nasties (like parasites or infectious diseases) in it. 👍❤
