Oink oink!

Look who made the front page of the local Cornwall paper yesterday! 


Yes, me and the piggies!

Todd, a reporter for the Cornwall Standard Freeholder, came by on Friday morning to meet the pigs and do a little story on us! You can read it here.

His editor asked him to do a story on pet pigs, so he called the manager of our shelter to ask if she knew anyone with a pet pig.  And of course, she did! :) 

I think I may  have convinced him to do a story this spring on our blind, geriatric mallard Lenny!

Ophelia, the piglets and I enjoyed our 15 minutes of fame. You can read about how we got Ophelia here. This Thursday marks a year since she came into our lives, pregnant and alone. Now she and her seven buddies are living the good life in their heated pen.
