Welcome to the Family!
Yes, this is the actual pig via email introduction.
Once weaned, this delightful little porker will be joining my sister's household. Her family recently moved into a dilapidated charming fixer-upper farmhouse on 20 acres in the North Woods. So she's not exactly doing a Mrs. Walgreen, though they do have every intention of allowing "Cletus" to roam about the house*. Karen has it on the best authority that this pig is 'trainable.' We can hope. Scrappy, our twelve pound hound has occasional lapses in training. I shudder to imagine the consequences if were ten times the weight.

* Perfectly lovely to have in the home, these potbellies necessitate the securing of cabinets etc. to prevent out of control feeding. This led me to the crass suggestion of Prader-Willi as a potential last name for Cletus.
