I have been a very naughty blogger for a while but Mark has been after me to start blogging again. Several months ago I was at a barn in Kentucky and while I will not say who they are, I will say the transplants from South Africa , via Oregon, with their precious pig named Bacon made me want a mini pig.
Just before Christmas Mark asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I half joking said, a baby mini pig. Then I started doing research on the mini pigs, and the more I read the more I wanted a mini pig. First of all the pictures and videos of the tiny creatures got me hook, line and sinker. After all of 5 minutes on the world wide web, I learned Pigs are smart, clean, litter box trained (kinda) AND THEY ARE JUST TOOOO DAMN CUTE!!!!
What started kind of like a joke ended up into a full blown Internet (and almost a body cavity search ) for my soon to be new baby mini pig. I lost sleep because of the little porkers, I ate my meals thinking about swine and I can say for sure Mark (my husband) looked at more baby pig pictures than he will admit. After viewing 1000’s of the oinkers I finally choose my little piggie soul mate. KINDA!
I finally chose a black and white female pig that was labeled as tuxedo in color. How formal I thought! After all I know a lot about animals and this pig will be going to the horse shows with me, so she should be a little dressed up for traveling as she will be representing the mini pigs all across this great country. Maybe I should name her Sherry Templepig! As she will be so great, she will be an ambassador for her kind.
This was my dream before I got my precious darling swine. Tomorrow I will tell you about our trip to a foreign country (FLORIDA) to pick up Mark’s and my new baby.
Have you ever wondered why most baby mini pig websites do not show you any adult pigs?
Have you ever wondered where the term “squeal like a pig” comes from?
Well stay tuned right here, same blog, same blogger, and learn the answers to these VERY IMPORTANT questions.
I am THANKFUL for my Christmas present from Mark in 2010.
