P is For Pot-Bellied Piglet

Remember my blog on Finley, my Rhodesian Ridgeback? Well, here’s another couple of shots of one of these wonderful dogs. Only this one has company: a tiny pot-belly piglet. Too damn cute, eh? Here’s the story. The piglet runt was dismissed by its own mother. So, surrogate mum, Katjinga, an eight-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, took on motherly duties for grunter Paulinchen and seems to be taking the adoption in stride. Lonely Paulinchen was luckily discovered moments from death and placed in the care of the dog who gladly accepted it as one of her own. Thankfully for the two-week old mini porker, Katjinga fell in love with him at first sight and saved his bacon.

  1. I had two pot-bellied pigs for 15 years. They were so very amazing! They had their own little barn and access to a yard. They are very friendly to humans, but have a mind of their own–and they are VERY strong.

  2. These kinds of stories always remind me that all creatures are inexplicably bound together, and give me hope that one day our fractured nations may find ways to live in harmony.

  3. They are the best dogs to grow up with: knowing they will protect you from anyone or anything! Such fun to have around & play ball with as well.
