Yesterday we were wrapping things up with morning barn chores when we noticed the dogs were going crazy at the fence line. There is a plastic dog house there that was blown there and it hasn’t been moved. I couldn’t see what they were freaking out about. I told the boys that it was probably a bunny or a cat or maybe a mole and sent Samuel over to check it out. He yelled, “It’s a pig”! You could have knocked me over with a feather. I didn’t think I heard him right but he repeated it. Now I had to go check out this kitten that looked like a pig. When I got over there, sure enough, it was a little pot bellied pig! She has a harness on and everything.
Yesterday I was sure that some family had lost their pet but as the day wore on and the calls turned up nothing I am sure that someone has dumped this poor little creature. So today’s adventures are to find her a home. As cute as she is she cannot live here. The guard dogs smell bacon!
She is very calm and likes to be scratched but screams bloody murder if you try to pick her up. She is also surprisingly neat for a pig. I am keeping her in a room at the barn and she only uses one spot to use the bathroom so she is probably litter trained. Let me know if you are interested.
Y’all come back now!
