Weekend Visitor

Meet Haiden, a 3 month old mini-pot bellied pig. He is staying the weekend with us while his owners are out of town.
He only weighs about 10 lbs. So cute. (Look at those itty bitty hooves!)He had a little bit of separation anxiety when his mom and dad left... and did some pretty loud squealing. But then he settled down on his blankie and went to sleep. (I cracked myself up last night - "Look! A pig in a blanket")After a short nap, he introduced himself to Patches. She didn't know quite what to think about this newcomer. She finally lost interest and hopped back to her cage. This morning he met Angel through the screen. Lots of grunting going on. I've never been around a pig before, it's pretty entertaining!Here he is eating breakfast on the patio. What they say about eating like a pig? So true. Look at the mess! Butt shot. (this seems to be a theme in my posts lately. ???)
You have to admit. That is a cute little pig butt!
Stay tuned for more pig posts. Happy Saturday!

Oh my gawd! Itty bitty teeth, itty bitty butt, itty bitty everything, except personality! What a cutie. I have to stop visiting here...I want all these animals to come and stay with me! You have such a wonderfully happy home, your house guest may experience a little bit of separation anxiety when she leaves you at the end of her stay.
