So since I was about 7 years old, I have been collecting pigs. ANY KIND of pigs. For my 8th birthday I got a pig from everyone invited to my party at the roller rink. One girl even gave me two of the exact same stuffed/beanie pig that another girl gave me! Then I got some pound piggies that came with a mom and four little piggies. So altogether, I had about ELEVEN pigs. Oh, and some Pound Elephants from another girl-(apparently she didn't get the memo). That was such a fabulous birthday! We roller bladed all evening, ate superman ice cream until we were sick, had some 12 yr old boy party crashers, and loads and loads of pigs!! Still to this day I have so many pigs. However, most of my piggies are old, and I hadn't gotten any new for a while, until this last birthday I told Audie that all I wanted was a pig. She got me the most adorable ceramic pig ever! And even made a little sailor hat out of paper for it! I love it!
Anyway, I was just thinking about this all today and how I've always wanted a real pet pig. Since I was 7 I wanted a pig EXACTLY like Wilbur in "Charlottes Web", and even didn't eat anything from pigs for oh, about a week. Within that week my family went to a funeral, and I actually saved some pieces of ham in a napkin cuz I was so sad about the poor piggy who'd had to die.
So from then on, I wanted a pet pig so I could protect it and make sure it was never ever slaughtered and eaten. A little later, Shawn from BMW had a pet pig in his room named Little Cory! Perfect name!!! Gosh I cant wait til I can have my very own Little Cory!! Future husband? yeah, we're not having dogs. We're havin a little piggy!!! :) Hopefully a teacup one like this little dear!
Aw! And this little piggy went WEE WEE WEE ALL THE WAY HOME TO ME ME ME!! :)
