Rules are Rules

Our property came with several deed restrictions which we were very happy about. We have not had any problems abiding by all of them, including NO HOGS!  Fortunately this does not include miniature micro pot-bellied pigs that are guaranteed to stay under 10 pounds…..or was it 110???

Dog and Pony Show

The last time Princess Macaroni came out to the ranch, we gave her a hay ride in the wheel barrow. This time, she was a good sport being herded by Pony Boy….. Mini Macaroni gave Princess Mac a little love bite. The ponies know just how much they can get away with without being shippedContinue reading “Dog and Pony Show”

Happy Day!!!!!

Miss Piggy was up bright and early and starving with her usual healthy appetite. She had homemade pancakes, cranberry bread and some hog feed to balance it out.  A few oatmeal cookies for dessert…..She was cheerful and like a new pig after yesterday’s damp chilly weather really got her down. I remade her bed withContinue reading “Happy Day!!!!!”

Needle In A Haystack

Almost had to poke poor little Miss Piggy today. I talked to a couple of Veterinarians and some pot bellied pig breeders and thought that she might need a penicillin shot, just in case she had pneumonia or something. She was shivering and trying to make a warm bed out of wet leaves. She wasContinue reading “Needle In A Haystack”

If that fails they attack the assistant staff member and beg for breakfast. They have already had snacks through the night because the felineContinue reading “The Breakfast Club”

Swine Not?

Miss Piggy here….Dana  made the mistake of leaving her book in the barn and it has been  an inspiration to me. It is a bestseller written by the great singer/musician Jimmy Buffet. It is called “Swine Not?” It is about a little pig that looks a lot like me. Her owners move into a hotelContinue reading “Swine Not?”

Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow

  Any one who has pets knows how difficult it is to be away from them. I had a panic attack before we left the last time, imagining all sorts of afflictions that they would suffer, not to mention the possible trauma they would inflict upon their caretakers. The four dogs were in heaven atContinue reading “Parting Is Such Sweet Sorrow”

Felice Cumpleaños

Daddy Bub would be 95 on his birthday today. At 93 and 9 months, he was too young to leave us, but we know that he knows that today we are celebrating the wonderful times we had with him. Anyone who met him would not be able to forget him…….I think it just might beContinue reading “Felice Cumpleaños”

America’s Next Top Model

  In this economy it is not enough to just have a beautiful face and figure. You have to be able to multitask…..for instance, Miss Piggy has been forced into plowing the back forty in order to feed the less endowed creatures that happen to dwell here. She  has had numerous requests for her modelingContinue reading “America’s Next Top Model”
