NATIONAL PIG DAY

Today is National Pig Day. You may remember that I have two pot belly pigs. One we've had for about 8 years, her name is Sadie:
I also have another one who's pink and has blue eyes. Her name is Miss Piggy. She was a homeless pig that we took in.

Pigs are very smart, and believe it or not, they are very clean animals. The roll in mud because they can't sweat and it cools them down. It also coats their skin so they don't get sunburned. We put a kiddie pool in our pig's area so they can crawl in the water and keep cool during the summer.

They are very friendly and will take snacks out of your hand. They enjoy getting belly rubs. Miss Piggy has been trained to walk on a leash and harness. Sadie will roam around our yard, and never leaves. One of our neighbors always feeds them is food scraps, and when Sadie sees him she starts grunting and making this weird noise, almost like squealing under her breath.

I do enjoy my girls.

Happy Pig Day!
