I think we have all seen animals who would mother orphaned babies of other species, but this is one of the cutest and oddest I've seen. This mother dachshund took in the baby pig as if he were one of hers. Isn't that sweet?!
These photos came from a good email buddy, but he didn't say where he got them.
I was surprised to see how much fuzzy hair was on that piggy. My mom used to tell me stories of life on the farm when she was a girl, and she always had a favorite baby pig and lamb in each season. She told me she had to give it up because it hurt too badly when the animals were slaughtered. I don't think I could handle that either.
Thanks to all who offered opinions and advice about painting the kitchen. I have decided to patch the holes and apply primer to the walls first, and then paint some more choices to look at for a while, in all shades of daylight and at night. I am in no hurry, since it took me about 10 years to decide to remove the wallpaper - I guess I can handle a few more weeks!
