Barnyard pigs

A coffee with the horses“I like pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down on us. Pigs treat us as equals.” – Sir Winston Churchill

Pigs get a bum rap.

They are possibly the cleanest animal on the farm.

They are strong.

They can be a watch dog of sorts – they bark at strangers.

Thanks Cindy. Although we have had wonderful "luck" with our critters, i.e., never lost a puppy, calf, goat, lamb, etc. Sometimes it just isn't meant to be. They sure touch our hearts though...no matter how little, or how long they were in our lives. Thanks ~ Hope your day is wonderful.

Darn, I had an inkling that Weebles' story was not going to have the same type of happy ending of Wilbur's - and even Wilber's was bitter sweet. It's human nature to want those happily-ever-after storybook endings; Mother Nature sometimes has other plans. Weebles is an example of that, and shows that you have to appreciate each day - even the tiniest things contained within - because you never know what tomorrow will bring. Thanks for sharing, Sherry. Enjoy your day.
