Piper...the bad little Piggy!!!

Well...she's doing great. The mange is gone, she's house trained (ok...so maybe I am the one who is trained, but it's working, so we won't mess with it!) and she's very sweet. She's also the brattiest little piggy I have ever met! She still has to be confined to the kitchen. At first it was because my other pigs didn't like her, but now it's because SHE brings out the worst in them! They are doing so good, trying not to kill her (and they ARE trying ;o)), but every time she walks by them she lashes out and attacks. This is NOT going over well with my boys! She seems to think she is a princess. I can't imagine why. ;o)

She is getting so bored in the kitchen. I try to spend as much time in there with her as I can, and between the 4 of us, there is usually someone coming or going, but she wants someone to sit on the floor and snuggle with her all the time. As soon as you sit, she crawls onto your lap and goes to sleep. The second she hears the furnace come on, she runs to the heat vent and stands on it until it shuts off, warming her little hoovens. It's funny to watch and you can't drag her away from it.  When I turn my back she's chewing on my cupboards, trying to eat my floor, ripping layers off of the walls. Ahhh, what fun! It's a full time job watching this one. We had to bring the big kennel in to save my house while we are sleeping or not home. She's definitely busy. :o)

We have been working with getting her together with the boys, and it is coming slowly. I've brought her out to the living room the last few evenings to lie on the couch with me and she loves it. Goes right to sleep. Tonight I will lie on the floor with her and see if she will go to sleep down there right beside them. Hope it works.
(PS..the yellow thing in the picture is an extension cord! Didn't realize how it looked until after I posted it! :o))

  1. There is something about white pigs and my only guess is the white introduced to the pots came from farm pigs so these guys are as busy , smart , out going, clever and BRATS because that is what my farm pigs are like in the house!!
