This mornings cavy olympig triathlon turned into a pentathlon with two new unscheduled events.

We had the steeple chase and munch race as normal, then Murphy did his two foot sprint back to the hutch but Patch decided he wanted to hang out underneath it and so turned the event into a marathon while we waited for him to come out. We tried bribery and threats but nothing was getting that chap out until he wanted to.

Meanwhile Murphy practiced his high jump/hurdles by hopping out of the hutch, doing a lap of honour and then jumping back in again.

This went on for half an hour before I thought to lay a bucket down on its side.  Patch was in the bucket within a couple of minutes and from there it was a quick transfer back to the hutch.
