|Original shirt and new-and-improved Pig Patrol shirt|
Tammy designed the original shirts for the 2010 pignic season and they were an instant hit. The Boston Pignic had grown very rapidly in just a few years. It was impossible for Tammy and I to watch pigs, direct people and answer questions all at the same time. It was quite stressful to juggle it all. So we asked for some guinea pig savvy people to volunteer, and the Pig Patrol was born. Volunteers helped set up pens, get people signed in and inspect guinea pigs that wished entry to the common pens. They answered all sorts of questions about health, diet, habitat and clipped dozens of guinea pigs' nails.

The original shirts had been a fairly last minute idea and the artwork had been simply ironed on. I'm impressed my shirt has hung together so well, but it's starting to lose the lettering in the front. So I am excited to get the new silkscreen shirt. I love the new lettering and the tagline of "...i'm here to help!" I anticipate this shirt will be around for many pignics to come.
