MooooOOOOOoooooM! There’s a Pig in the Yard!

October 14, 2008 at 1:35 am 3 comments

I had no idea there were any pigs in the neighborhood!  So when the Bigs came off the bus the other day yelling about the pig running loose, my first thought was “It’s not April Fool’s Day!”

Sure enough!  Apparently one of our Purdue professor neighbors a block away has two potbelly pigs who broke through his fence to get to the fallen apples on the other side.  Then they realized they were out and decided to go for an explore through the Hundred-Acre Neighborhood!

We followed them a bit to keep an eye out while another neighbor went to find the owners.  They were really stubborn (the pigs, not the owners) and were not about to go home without a very noisy fight.

I’m glad I didn’t take my brother up on his offer to give us one of his pigs!  Sorry, Jack!  We’ll stick to cats and dogs!

    When I heard The Big kids yell I thought it was April Fools too.

    I had a potbelly pig for 14 1/2 years (she died last year of old age). She was probably the best pet I have ever had. Yeah, they are stubborn and really smart. I’m still too heartbroken over losing her that I can’t even think of getting another one.

    Loved the story.
