Now there's something you don't see everyday...

A mild afternoon here in Grey Squirrel Hollow...overcast, nice breeze. A nice time to get in a little light yard work. So I'm doing some string trimming...and I see something out of the corner of my eye, coming up the driveway. I see a dog,...a hound...big, long legged, long earing Beagle maybe Foxhound mix. I had never seen him before. I tell the dog to "run along"...not wanting him to bother my "porch cat".

Then I see my neighbor lady...and she says "Look what's with him!"...I look down my driveway and see a small pig trotting along behind the dog. Now I am the last house in the city limits and we do have lots of animals around here. But it's still a residential neighborhood...no farms or barns. I've been here 25 years and this is my first pig.

It seems they had escaped their yard a couple of blocks over. And were just roaming around the neighborhood together. I had never seen either of them before. The neighbor lady called the owners and both were taken home safely.

The little pig was very friendly and came to me for some ear scratching as did the dog...I think the pig thinks he's a dog. Not your typical Monday here in the "hollow"....a pig day...

I say it is a sign! I read the Animal farm in School there was a pig and a dog in that story also! You might name that one desert camo!

Wink Share With Others!!

I believe that you should share your good fortune with others. You should take your new found porker-type friend and drop him off at a local Islamic Community Center. Those folks should know what to do with a nice little piggy!!! You should add a nice note hanging off his collar that denotes that his name is MOHAMMAD!!!

Ahhhh, Pork, the gift that keeps on giving!!!!

Good Evening, Infidel!!.jpg

Am I being cruel again??

In a few months there will be no need to call the owners. Shhhh....no one needs to know. LOL

Yep, it really pains me to put it out there like that, but it is what it is!
