Hosted by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, Pig Week is an initiative to educate pet owners about these uncommon pets. Best Friends recently posted an informative blog about “pignorance” which caught my eye as I recently lost an aunt who found great solace in her hospice caretaker’s pot-bellied pig. When I was searching for an image for this post I Googled “therapy pigs”, a term that not surprisingly generated the following suggestion: “Did you mean therapy dogs?” No, Google, I did not. Even the Internet is guilty of pignorance!
Please take a moment to read the blog entry by Piggy Paradise manager Yvonne McIntosh, which dispels myths about pig cleanliness, size, and intelligence, but be warned – you may never eat pork again.
