With the sad event of losing Houidini’s late wife Lady-Bug, we knew that we eventually would need another companion for Houidini. Pigs are very social creatures and do not do well alone.
We contacted our local pig rescue and were connected with an organization in Gaston County. Apparently, they have a large population of stray pot bellied pigs in that county and one particular little guy caught my eye.
Picked up as a stray, this several month old piglet was covered in scabies. The rescue organization has been treating his scabies, neutered him and have been showing him some piggy love.
Next week we will be making a trip to pick up our new piggy bundle of joy from his foster mom. I hope Houidini will find a true friend in this little guy and have a life long companion to romp and root with.
We don’t have a name picked out yet and I thought it would be fun to get ya’ll involved.
I present to you the official Name The Pig Giveaway! Beginning Friday, July 19th, I will be taking email submissions via firstname.lastname@example.org for your suggestions for a name for this little one. One submission per person please. I will then choose the top 2 submissions, place them in a hat, and choose one at random to be declared the winner. Not only will the winner have the honor of their name being given to the pig, but I will also send the winner a prize package of goodies to their home! Monday, July 22nd at will be the last date of accepted submissions and the winner will be announced Wednesday morning July 24th.
Here are a few pics and a video from his foster mama so you can get to know him a little…
I can’t wait to see what you come up with, let those piggy naming juices flow!
Until next time…
