Show Pig??

Do you think she knows she's a fancy "SHOW PIG" destined for pre-fair shampoos and grooming in March?
Do you think she cares?
Reminds me of an old Dillards tune, " What's time to a hog?"
At least I think it was the Dillards ... I had it on 8-track and listened to it while driving a 1970 International Scout ... so my memory may be fuzzy.Posted by Picasa

I hope she doesn't know what's beyond the show.

She is so cute, even when she's covered in dirt. She looks like she has quite a personality, or would that be a pigonality? I bet she's a charmer.

kathy a said...

as charlotte might say, that's "some pig!" did your kids ever read the book "pigs aplenty, pigs galore"?

Laura said...

don't you dare start showing us picts of her looking all cute like this! We'll get attached, and we city folks can't handle a pig's reality very well. LOL

Mark said...

I don't handle a pig's reality very well. I try to avoid eating pig. They're too intelligent to eat.

Momadness said...

I'm with Laura, Mark and the pig!

vicki said...

On the heels of Laura, Mark and momadness! Even though it's hard to tell where her spots stop and the dirt starts and her ears are a bit, ah, uneven- still, FC. I am no longer so distant that I couldn't organize a pignap...

Okay everybody, remember cute or not, she's livestock not a pet. Just keep telling yourself that ...I do all the time :)

I think Pigs live in the moment.

Total charmer. Very talkative and tastes everything... jeans, shoes, shirt tail ... just in case it's edible.

Kathy A,
I don't remember it, but I'm going to ask them tonight!

Uh oh, better not post the pig shower photos.

I'm smarter than her and SHE would eat me in a New York minute if I passed out in her pen.
I do know what you're saying, I use the same argument against the Japanese, Norwegians, and Icelanders when they hunt whales.

Trust me, I get way too attached to these fair pigs. The final day of the fair in which they are auctioned off is a bittersweet day. I look at it this way, she could be spending these months in a concrete floored ultra modern pig barn crowded into a small pen with other pigs.
Here, she gets fresh air, sunshine, belly rubs, back scratches, apples, and conversation.
Her situation could be much worse.

Now you know these pig posts are for you, but the deal is No Pignapping!

Yes-sum, Dillard is a fine name for a hog.

ImagineMel said...

sheesh, I thought I asked you not to post those New Year's Eve pics of me...I'm missing an earring, I don't know where my shoes went, and I have that "deer in the headlights" stare. Pig- a- razzi...they're everywhere.

Rurality said...

My hubby always says "Fancy show cat!" as he picks up one of our cats and stretches them to full length and pretends to be showing him/her to a crowd. You should try that with your pig and see what reaction you get...

MoMadness said...

Aw, I know it's bitter-sweet for you and I know you make it better for her than an industrial operation! I really, really do just have this "thing" for animals, period, and it's not like I would expect anyone or everyone to feel the same. Heck, it's hard for me to sort out sometimes!

Floridacracker said...

Dillard is not very feminine ...

There is no respite for the famous :)

I don't think I'm Uber enough to lift this pig.

Sounds like you have a big heart.
