Pigs

I like pigs, especially the Primitive variety.
Apparently, I'm in very good company....


"I am fond of pigs.
Dogs look up to us.
Cats look down on us.
Pigs treat us as equals. "

As a son of a pig farmer I have so many memories about this animal. Your two little pigs are neat.

I am becoming quite fond of them, and I think it all started when I got a pig with wings that has the saying "It is said it will happen when pigs fly" that got me started. I hope you're having an enjoyable week! :-)

Winston Churchill got it right.
I like those Pigs that you can pick up an rattle coins inside.

Cute little pigs, Jo.... I used to have a HUGE Pig Piggybank when I was a child... It took me FOREVER to fill it... BUT-- when I wanted all of those coins, we had to break that piggybank... I cried since I had become attached to that pig.

Love the quote by Churchill.

Hugs,
Betsy

I love the pig in "Toy Story 3" too. He's so cute, and he reminds me of the big wooden guy. If you haven't seen it yet, I hope you will enjoy it!!

I have not seen that quote about a pig before. I loved the movie Pig you know the little pink thing, like the little monkey said.
